Do you remember your first tama?

Recommended Posts

My first Tama was a connexion ver 3. It's shell is pink and there are ice creams all around it. My first ''pet'' was called Niksu. Niksu died when he was just a baby bc I didn't know how to take care of it. Soon I hatched a new Niksu. Sadly he died when he was teen.

 

Sadly that Tamagotchi is broken nowadays. It's buttons stopped working. I tried to fix it but the Niksu-Tama was dead. Niksu-Tama is now a keyring which has my own drawing on its screen.

 

I have a lot of memories with my Niksu-Tama. I dropped it in a glass of Pepsi once. When this happened, I had a Tarakotchi and her baby.

When I was like 7-8 years old, I lost Niksu-Tama somewhere in my room and when it beeped, I got too scared and ran away. Later that day I found Niksu-Tama and he was still alive! My baby was saved <3

Oh I remember that day :D It was back in 1996, when I first heard of Tamagotchis. Everyone was hype about it, but my parents wouldn't buy me one, because the negativ critic in the press. My best friend got one, pretty fast after the release... and I was so jealous :D I kept bugging my parents and grandparents... and then my grandma bought me one for Christmas. It was one of these 29in1 Tamas, but I was all happy ^^

Yet, I really REALLY wanted to have an original, because the one from my friend was one from Bandai and way cooler, than that 29in1 VP. So I kept bugging my mom... and about half a year later she surprised me with a P2. It was the red one, with white buttons and the white logo on top ^^ OMG I was so excited, happy, and couldn't believe it. I think I was playing 2 years with it, before I abandoned it, because school stuff. But I never forget that time. I still have that Tama ^^ and, although I've been playing a lot, it looks like new :wub:

My first ever Tama was a pink hearts shell V1 back in 2004. I remember bringing it home, opening it up at the kitchen table, and being super excited to play it. :D I think I got it at Kmart maybe? It's been so long.

My first Tamagotchi was the white V1 Connection with yellow buttons. I got it in another city neither I nor my parents can recall. I remember being very anxious to open it as I waited for my mom to try on some clothing in the shop we visited after purchasing it. My first adult character was Kuchipatchi. I remember that my parents were interviewing an afterschool babysitter for me at her house when it grew to adulthood. She didn't get the job, so my first Tama reached adulthood in the home of someone I don't even remember. It was irreparably damaged probably seven to ten years ago when (if I recall correctly) one of the buttons fell out and I couldn't fix it. I later bought a replacement black Connexion with white buttons on Ebay.

I have vague memories of having had two of the yellow V2s with butterflies, one of which had a line of dead pixels about 1/4 of the way down the screen, but I don't know what happened to the other one. I only have one now (the one without dead pixels, if the other ever truly existed). I also somewhat remember having had a red V2 with pills that I gave to my cousin (but I can't confirm it that it ever existed because we had a falling out years ago). It's weird what time can do to a mind.

My first tamas was the chocolate argyle v4.5. I got it for Christmas in 3rd grade and I was super excited because my cousin had one at some point. She never explained to me what it was, but I still thought it was cute. It was actually lucky that my parents got it because I didn't know what they were called. I didn't know that it needed constant care so I left it on a shelf for awhile and it died. After that, my parents helped me figure it out and I enjoyed it! Later that month, my grandparents took my sister and I to the theater and I forgot I had my tama on my lap, so I assume it fell in some crevice in the floor when I stood up. We left and I realized I didn't have it. I was devastated! My grandparents bought me a new one because I missed it so much. I still have that one now. It's the v4.5 girls rock graffiti. I think that's where my love of v4.5s come from.

My first ever tamagotchi was a v1 :') it was baby pink and it came with a pack of stickers to decorate it with! My best friend and I were the only ones that had one where we were from but we were obsessed! And we'd connect every day when we were together.. RIP little one ;-;

When I was really young I used to play with my siblings' Tamas and various knockoffs that they had. My favorite was the hideously-ugly-yellow Tamagotchi Angel my sister had. Seriously.... that yellow color makes it look like it has nicotine damage. I remember crying when it died :P I THINK they also had the P1 or P2 (can't remember) that was all white with black buttons. We also had a Digimon, the blue one. I remember thinking that one was really awesome too because it could connect to other ones and battle.

 

My first personal Tamas that I owned were two V1 Connections that I got in 2004, when they first came out. The green and orange squares one and the lavender circles one. I'm actually really surprised my parents managed to find them, thinking back on it I'm kind of shocked they weren't totally sold out everywhere. I still have the green one right here on my desk, but I don't know where the lavender one went which makes me sad since it was my favorite one.

Oh how could I ever forget my first tama! So I was in Walmart, and we had found a Tamagotchi Movie bundle. It contained a V6, the movie, and 3 figures. So we bought it and I had the V6 up until I moved and I lost it. I have the movie and the figures still though. It may be gone, but I won't ever forget it though!

It looked like this, but without the tag. I think it also had the Tamagotchi brand on top, but I'm not sure, it's been almost 10 years now... It was a V3 and I was a whole 13 years old! ;) I have a feeling I used to have another one before that though... but I don't remember clearly. This one I remember because I thought I was already too old for them, my mother knew I liked them and asked me if I wanted one. I was embarassed and happy at the same time lol

 

Edit: I don't know how to make the picture smaller, I'm sorry..

Si!

 

My first Tamagotchi was a V1. Same device as I have right now. The creature herself was a girl I named Gina. I had no clue what I was doing, and she evolved into a Hanatchi.

I do! It was the orange purple V1 + pink V1! The pink one came with stickers to decorate it. But I've only got the orange one, I donated some of my tamas a long time ago and only kept my favourite few.

 

Receiving them from my mother is a sweet memory I remember vividly. I had seen a friend playing with one and wanted one too, I had asked my parents but they didn't understand or know what it was. We had went to a few stores to look but gave up, so I had forgotten about it.

It must have been a few weeks later, just before Christmas, I was sitting on the couch and my mom said she wanted to give me an early Christmas gift, and she handed me a pink tamagotchi connection. I was so excited, and I think she was too cause just a few minutes later of me playing with it she had returned and said alright alright I'll give you another gift early, and she handed me the orange one as well so I could connect and play with them hahaha! Looking back now I think she was really excited, she always got too excited and spoiled us early for Christmas. My parents never had many toys growing up so my mother always wanted to make us happy with the little money we had. I really appreciate her giving me a childhood she couldn't experience. Tamagotchis have always brought back sweet memories and happy times :)

My first tama was a P1, but for the life of me, I can't find the shell design in any pics, and there's a part of my brain that's just convinced I don't remember the colors right. From what best I can remember, it was a black and white shell. I want to say that the top half was black and the bottom was white, but I haven't been able to find anything like that. It WAS a P1, but I think it either broke or I traded it away for a Rancor Gigapet (which is neat, but the tama was cooler).

My second tama was (and is!) a P2 with a translucent orange shell. I recently put new batteries in it and brought it back to life, and it works great! Glad I've hung onto it!

My first Tamagotchi was a magenta P1 with yellow buttons and a yellow clock-face design. I bought it when they were first released in the UK in 1997.

 

It's the same as the blue clock-face design that most recently appeared as part of the 20th Anniversary Mini set, but in yellow. The one I had isn't listed on Project TamaShell.

 

EDIT: However, it is shown here on Mimitchi.com, in the pictures "Japanese & German P1" and "Eleven Tamagotchi".

 

It went missing at some point, though. I hope to someday find it again, as I'm pretty sure that I kept it, along with my other virtual pets from back in the day.

You may very well be remembering correctly! There are shells that simply haven't been documented by the online fandom, because there were so many of them, and it seems that not all of them saw release in all countries.

 

My original one, that I described above, is one of them, as is the P1 that I currently own (which is hot-pink with green buttons and a green screen-surround, with the Western Tamagotchi logo at the top, also in green - as with my original, it was one of the early colours released in the UK).

 

I don't suppose that it was anything like the red-and-black one listed here, by any chance? It wouldn't surprise me at all if multiple two-tone variants existed, since that design looks really cool.

It was that sort of two-tone design, but I seem to remember it being black on top and white on the bottom, with black buttons and "Tamagotchi" on the top in white like the one on the pic. The little area around the screen was white as well, if memory serves. Man, I wish I hadn't traded it away!

 

Honestly, I need to send my P2 shell design to that site as well since it doesn't have that either. Mine looks like this: http://www.tamashell.com/i/shells/p2/clearyellow.jpg but with 'Tamagotchi' in black lettering at the top and black buttons.

 

It's crazy how many variants there are! And yet, I can't seem to find a used V3 in a design I like. XD

That was my first ever Tamagotchi!

I remember everyone having them at school and I didn't really understand them at first. I used to get what we call "pocket money" every week from my Grandma and I remember saving up so I could go to the shops and buy one. Within a few months I was hooked and I had started to grow my collection massively and also found TT and TZ! I hold so many dear memories attached to Tamas and I'm so grateful that I was fortunate enough to own one.
