Yes, that’s how JD spelled it. The Tamagotohi is a fake Color Tama that came out a year after the real one (so, 2009). It has a built in FM radio, IR communication like real Tamagotchis, and photos can be transferred via USB to use it as a digital photo frame. The only known screenshot was posted here on TamaTalk a few years ago, but the link provided there leads to a blank page with no archives. https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/189867-tamagotchi-colour-fake/ A reserve image search revealed that it had originally been shared to another Tamagotchi forum back in 2009. Google Translated English version here. Fun facts- The Tamagotohi originally retailed for $6 USD adjusted for today. If you look closely on the box, it shows drawings of the different characters. User MadamBoss of Tamagochy shared a photo of the toy and box, confirming something: this was made by JiDan. Look at how the model number has “JD” before it. This is how every virtual pet by JiDan (under their original name) is stylized: Ex) Interestingly, the Touma Pet (a recent fake Color by M&D) has a similar model number, only this time it has “OK” before it. (Plus it uses stuff from A-Watch and QPet Quolor.) Where have we seen that before? Oh yeah! Are M&D, OK, and JD related? Who knows. If so, a Bootleg Tamagotchi conspiracy would prove that reality truly is stranger than fiction. The gist: Color Tama fakes are nothing new. And, the Handwarmer Pedometer Handwarmer Powerbank Tamagotchi is the tip of the iceberg for mutant bootlegs. At the moment, there are no known videos, other photos, or old listings. The lack of any info makes it more illusive than even the Tamagezi. This can be considered “lost,” as there is no actual documentation left online. With that being said, if anyone here has more things like pictures or one of these perplexing devices on hand, it would be much appreciated if you could help solve the mysteries surrounding this strange bootleg.
OK, my friend wanted a Tamagotchi, and she asked me if the price was too high so she sent me a link to the product, but when I looked at the website...IT'S TOTALLY FAKE! Here's an image of the Tama she wants: As you can see, IT'S PRETTY UGLY! Oh sorry the image is a bit big but it wouldn't let me scale it down ^^; First thing we see is that the word Tamagotchi is NOWERE on the package. Instead it says Ura-pet which I have no clue what that means! Second, it has a female symbol on it! Real Bandai tamas do not have this regardless of the generation!!!! Third....IT HAS JD'S SYMBOL!!!!!!! I told my friend that this was a fake and she ended up buying a real one on eBay. THIS IS A WARNING!
