  1. Thanks for letting me know about this! I never knew that they sold these in the UK, I assumed that they were only a US and Canada release. There’s actually an Entertainer shop opening near me in a few weeks so I might pop in once it’s open and get one for myself!
  2. Personally I’ve bought vintage Tamagotchis NIB and with batteries still in them, and I have never had a problem with them. This does vary from the climate that they have been stored in though. Obviously if it’s been exposed to water or moisture the battery most likely will have defects, but this can also happen with heat. It’s not uncommon for this to happen with older models.
  3. Realistically, scams and fakes are unavoidable. Even for people like me and you who know their Fakes from their legitimate items, there will be people who false advertise. I have definitely been scammed before, and also overcharged. Ebay is full of people like this.
  4. I never knew this existed! I’ll definitely try this when I’m next buying anything on there. Honestly there are quite a lot of Tamagotchi ‘resellers’ even to this day. I think Etsy has the most, and some of them even sell fakes along with genuine items? I’m not sure why. The amount of videos on TikTok and YouTube with the title of ‘Unboxing my childhood Tamagotchi’ and it being a counterfeit hurts my heart. It’s nowhere near what their childhood was, whatever type of Virtual Pet they had.
  5. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this forum (also, 20,000 views! Thank you all!) so I thought I would get your guys input on this. Has anyone else been seeing less bootleg/fake Tamagotchis on eBay recently? It might just be me, but as I was scrolling through the ‘Tamagotchi’ search yesterday I was getting far less bootleg results than before. I am definitely not complaining about this, it makes things so much easier for buyers to find accurate results quickly. Might have just been me on this one though! I’m curious to see if the market for fakes is declining.
  6. I’ve decided to start a little ‘personal project’, where I’ve bought a pretty beat up Ketai and try to restore it! Will it take time? Definitely. It’s the first time I’ve ever properly tampered with the hardware of a Virtual Pet, but after countless YouTube videos, I think I have an almost ‘blueprint’ to my restoration. I’ll share what it looks like via Tamashell here so you can get a rough idea of what the outcome will look like; hopefully!

      Oh nice! :D I wish you the best of luck with this project, and I hope that it works out well and grants you the experience to do more. Preserving and restoring things is very rewarding, especially if it lets you get a few bargains along the way as well. 👍

  7. I don’t watch the Dream SPM/Wilbur, but according to my sister on one of their streams last night Wilbur Soot mentioned that he used to have a TamaTalk account and spent most of his time on hear ‘before the time of YouTube’! 

  8. So I was doing some late night online shopping yesterday… and I decided to finally give in and get a Demon Slayer Tamagotchi! I got my friends to vote for me between Nezuko and Tanjiro and they voted Nezuko, so she should be with me by the end of the month!

      It's a very fun nano! Definitely one of the best, IMO.

      @KidRetro64 Happy Birthday! Hope your day's awesome and you're P2 has a long life :^) I use my iPad mini for taking log photos and it works amazingly well. It just so happens to be my birthday also :chohimetchi:. I hatched my Mothra and named her Twenty-Second while I hatched a virtual horse yesterday and named her Birthday.

  10. Pretty much every bootleg V-Pet to ever exist has the same shell mould, poorly designed and cheaply made. There's no originality or uniqueness, just a carbon copy of something it isn't.
  11. The commercial (in my opinion) looks really bad. The whole concept of the device isin’t explained here and they just did a really bad job at the Pix as a whole. I can imagine the camera will be pretty dire, the the price It’s going to be at least £80. Honestly, I might pick one up if they become cheaper.
  12. Have you ever dropped your Tamagotchi or exposed it to water? If you have it could have damaged some of the internals. My only other guess to the problem would maybe be the brand of batteries? If you can, try a different kind.
  13. My 1 and 2 storey houses used to do this all the time! What I used to do is take the batteries out and put them back in. Works for me, but if it doesn’t for you; try a different brand.
  14. I bought them 2 days ago from Sainsbury’s, so I would hope so! It’s been in a drawer for 6 months without use with all my other Bandai Tamagotchis. I’ve played with them on and off with no trouble.
  15. Hello, folks! In spite of easter, I decided a few days ago to run my Usatama in celebration. I went ahead today and removed the old batteries, and popped in the new. I’d done this numerous times before, so I didn’t think anything of it. As soon as I put the new ones in, the screen was black. All the pixels were filled in (which gave me hope, as that meant the batteries were making contact) apart from a few ‘scrambled’ ones in the top left corner. I took them out immediately, as I didn’t want to damage in device further and permanently damage the screen. When my Dad got back (the one who helps me with all of my Tama-issues) he tried himself, with more dead pixels in different patterns. He tried resetting, nothing. There were just random pixels on the screen (image attached for reference to what they roughly looked like at the time) with no response from the reset or ABC buttons. We tried again, this time the clock displaying and the device beeping. As I finally thought it worked, the ‘12’ which was supposed to be on the left side of the screen was.. missing? I tried to click ABC over and over, but it appeared to be frozen. Took them out again, and put them back in. Not expecting much. There was more garbage on the screen and then.. clicking? It sounded like something was going horribly wrong in the battery compartment. It went on clicking until I demanded my Dad to take out the batteries before it completely short-circuited itself. Since then, it’s been displaying dead pixels on and off, but most of the time nothing at all. The buttons are unresponsive, along with the speaker and reset. I also want to mention a few things before I get suggested them, as I have already tried most of the Google results provided! The brand of batteries is Duracel, which is the same brand I used for the batteries previously, along with all of my other virtual pets. I’ve never had any issues with their batteries until now. While all of this was happening, the battery cover was off, meaning nothing was causing pressure on the batteries or LCD. I’ve ran this Tamagotchi without any hassle before, this is the first time it has happened. The batteries and compartment are completely clean and intact. I’d appreciate it greatly if anyone had any advice or ideas on how to resolve this issue, it would mean a lot to me and my Tama! Here is what we are getting on the screen right now (With batteries in). When we take them out, simply nothing is displayed. It was showing completely black before, but it looks similar to this; You can clearly see faint and darker lines scattered across the screen, but before it was similar to garbage sprites and pixels. Hopefully this gives people a better idea of what i’m dealing with!
