Do you remember your first tama?

It seems we all go through the same events with our tamas! I also did lose my tama in the sand at the beach and found it by pure luck a few minutes later.

We sure are lucky we found ours! Like I mentioned before, my v2 really was in the snow for literal hours, until my mother came to rescue- she found it beeping right next to her feet! I am very surprised it still works. Thinking about all the tamas people have thrown away, destroyed or lost makes me sad. I wonder how many Tamagotchis people have found while using metal detectors at beaches etc. :D

I sometimes wonder this about the ones that were given burials when people couldn't bear to reset them, to be honest...

Then my mind turns to the fact that there'll be harmful materials leaching out of them by now (and there would've been toxicity coming from the batteries long ago, as it is) and doing damage to the environment. :(

I still have my first one actually!

I think that with the exception of furbies it was one of the toys I was the absolute most excited for. It was 2016, so the tamagotchi friends had just come out and I was in the 5th grade. I remember I would get really excited when the ad for them came on TV. 
 

When I was little I wouldn’t ever really ask for anything for Christmas, because it made me feel super guilty. That year it was the only thing I asked for. In the time leading up to Christmas I would watch unboxing videos on YouTube and did a lot of research on all kinds of different ones. 
 

On Christmas I woke up at like 4AM and was super excited to see that my guardians had gotten me not one, but two of them. I used to carry them around everywhere actually. Most of my teachers remembered having them at the time and sort of just ignored the fact that I had them despite the fact that the school handbook bans them by name.

I’m a senior in highschool now and much to my guardian’s dismay — I still love them. Teacher also still ignore them. As it turns out, they help a lot with my depression, so I’m glad I found em’.

I do. I was the only one in school with a connection, and since none of my friends had one, I got an oldie, which I didn't like. It died one day when I was swamped with homework...I still felt really guilty.

OMG! I remember it, and now I want to find it so bad. So many memories related to it... It's crazy how much time changes things. It all started from that little gadget and now look at me playing video games, that also developed a lot through out the time. I'm a csgo player for years, and now I started to think about the older versions of it, and I would definitely like to play the game without all the newest updates. This game is everything to me. Recently it even became a source of income, since I started to sell my csgo skins and get money out of this.

omg, i still remember it like vividly. i was around 10-11 and my friend brought a gen 1 tama to school with her and i was ENTRANCED. partially bc she was doing that thing little kids do where they wont let you see something they have, but thats besides the point LOL. anyway, she didnt call it a tamagotchi, she called it a virtual pet. and with that knowledge i went with my grandma to the mall that weekend to find some. at one of the kiosks, there was a HUGE display of knock off vpets and i chose this guy:

Nekotcha Virtual Pet 5+ Model # FL-001 | eBay

that exact shell design and everything. when i pointed it out, the guy working the counter said "this one? thats...a cat" and i LOVED CATS LMAO...we got it, brought it home, and holy s**t. what a miserable experience with this thing LOOOL. still tho, i love this thing, despite all the stress it caused. eventually, gen 2 was around the corner and my mom had saw that famous toys r us ad for the gold tamagotchi, and she got it for me after seeing one of her coworkers with one. she thought they were very cute! 🥰
