  1. Here’s the history behind AquaPets: In 2003, AquaPets were first released in Japan by Sega Toys under the name “Puku-Puku Water Angels”. They were a pretty hot toy, selling 500,000 in the first week of release. The 3 original characters are Puku, Kiko, and Tu. They even did licensed versions like the Postpet mascot and Disney characters (which oddly enough was never released outside of Japan). Outside of the ones mentioned and a promotional Water Angel featuring an air conditioning company's mascot (not even joking...), the line was silently discontinued in Japan shortly after. You can find others by Googling “ぷくぷくエンジェル” Their design seems to take inspiration from the Tomy Watergames line. This is a similar concept, only instead the figurine inside is more of a marionette, with movements according to which piece of string is pulled down. *There’s also the fact that you can’t refill an AquaPet, but more on that later.* The actual concept, though, is more like your typical virtual pet, only in a test tube! Each AquaPet has its own unique music and sound. Sega Toys also made a spinoff called Puku-Puku Resort featuring toy fish that swim around in a tiny dome. Besides the name, it bares little resemblance to AquaPets. https://www.yodobashi.com/product/100000001000357832/ Wild Planet, a US toy company, got the rights to release them outside of Japan. One of the unused names for AquaPets was “AquaAngels,” a reference to the original name. The same trio of AquaPets were released in 2003, featuring the original case designs. Wild Planet then went on to completely redesign them with the the infamous shell shape they’re known for... This design would be used until the line was discontinued around 2007, making way for PursePals. 24 total characters (not including licensed ones) were released in 4 different waves: http://breendirect.blogspot.com/2008/03/blog-post_11.html There are also some character bios here: http://web.archive.org/web/20060813134017/http://www.myaquapet.com:80/ These toys are also notorious for easily forming algae (but this was fixed in the 2010 version): Fast forward to 2010, and Wild Planet decided to give AquaPets another go. The new design featured a teardrop-shaped case, and all of the characters were redone in different colors. They were discontinued around 2014, leaving 17 characters in total between three different waves. There were also Dew Drops: mini versions that came with a removable figurine and a case that would react to sound. Then, there were Droplets, which included a figurine and case, but no electronic parts. http://cargocollective.com/caseyschneider/Aquapets-Wild-Planet Now, most AquaPets don’t completely work anymore because the water inside them has been evaporating over the years (yay science). Since Sega Toys and Wild Planet didn’t add a way to open and refill it, many don’t work because they don’t have enough water left for the character to properly float. You could theoretically just drill a hole in it and then refill, but some have said that this can actually damage the toy more. You can still play with the virtual pet portion, but it won’t have the cool animation/puppetry. Fun fact: Wild Planet also localized Sega Toy’s Handheld Aquarium virtual pet, renaming them as “Aquapalz.” https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001DTYT36
  2. I'm never able to select it, what does it do? Does it hold other tamas you had (ones that died)? Or other generations of tamas?
  3. I have a version 3 on its third generation. I can access my parent, but not my grandparent (when I was on the second generation, I wasn't able to access my parent once my tama was an adult...). I am never able to get to my history. What is there? Why can't I access it? Is my tamagotchi broken? I want to collect all the souvenirs in tama town, but I can't visit my grandparents there without a code. How can I get to my history? I have taken the battery out and changed it, but it did nothing. Do I need to reset it? Is there any way to fix it without resetting it? Please help!
  4. Hello tamatalk! I couldn't see a post on this and I'm honestly not sure if I'm in the right section so I do apologize for that in advance. I have the tamagotchi v4.5 and I am on generation 5, and I tried this on generation 4 too. I went onto the family part of the menu and pressed on History but it will not allow me to go onto it and I was wondering why it won't allow this. I was wondering if your tama had to be at a certain age to visit it or you had to be on a certain generation. Please help as I would love to look back at all of the generations of my tamagotchi. Thank you for reading and thank you in advance for your help. -Laura
