I stumbled across this in a branch of TK Maxx (the UK version of TJ Maxx) today, and I couldn't resist picking it up; It's an officially-licensed metal and enamel keychain, featuring a nostalgic element of the original toys that we enthusiasts sometimes bemoan ("Oh no, they only remember the Tamagotchi as a toy that poops and dies!"), albeit humourously framed. I'm pretty happy with this find because it was the only one that they had left and it had been reduced in price to £1.70! (A quick check online tells me that they originally retailed for £7.99, which, even though this is a really nice and surprisingly big keychain, I feel is a little high.) These were made by the UK giftwares company Paladone. Their goods are sometimes sold in North America too, so this is just a quick heads-up to let anyone who might be interested know that these are out there, presumably now discounted after the pre-Christmas impulse-buy period for items like this has come and gone. Interestingly, even though this is a British product, it doesn't use the angel death-screen from the original Western localised version of the toys, instead opting for the gravestone from the Japanese versions (though without Obaketchi). I'm sure that some people will swear blind that they remember it being this way originally, as a result. But it's still a nice-looking little piece of merchandise, and I certainly can't argue with the price!
For those who don't know of TruffleShuffle.co.uk, it's an online retailer that sells retro/pop-culture-themed goods. I'm just quickly posting this because I found this on their site the other day; It's always nice to see new official Tamagotchi items. This one is an official Tamagotchi heat-change mug, and it can be found here if any of you guys want one.
Apparently there are Tamagotchi bath bombs! From what I can find there are two colors, a fuchsia and the other is purple. Inside of them is a cute charm that looks like a Tamagotchi shell with a illustration of a random character on it. It looks like the characters on them are all from the 4U line, though a super adorable Oyajitchi made it on the packaging. You can watch one completely dissolve here: Has anyone tried one of these? I've never used a bath bomb myself but I've watched a lot of videos about them out of curiosity and this looks like a really nice one. Unlike the others I've seen with this gimmick the charms inside look good, they'd make nice necklaces.
