I’ll start off by saying, I LOVE cleaning tamagotchi’s. 🧽
I’ve bought a few where people have claimed the buttons don’t work, I’ll take a risk, and purchase them. Once receiving them, I delicately take them apart and see what could possibly be wrong. So far I’ve been lucky that all it is, is that they’ve been taken everywhere by their previous owners/owner, collecting dirt, hair, you name it, and with that collecting around/under the buttons is what makes them not work as well as they should.
After giving them a “bath” and piecing them back together, they work good as new! ☺️ I know these photos aren’t the best in quality, but I had to resize them to be able to upload on here. These two are my most recent ones that I’ve worked on. I wonder who use to own these before they ran into the person I purchased them from?
With that all said, I’ve been on the hunt now for tamagotchi lots/sets that are “broken” and was hoping that people here might be able to point me in the right direction of sellers who do that. I know there were a few on eBay who did, but at the moment I can’t seem to find them selling any.
Theese are my thoughts on bootleg and generic pets. I'll keep posting in this topic when I get a new one. (New topic will be made after 3 months and I get a new one)
This is the newest version of the QPet. It has upgraded visuals and new pets. It was made this year (2020) I think, because of the date already being set to 1/1/2020. It's basically a downgraded Touma Pet. It also has NFC instead of the regular IR. Oh, It just evolved into a Kutchipatchi like thing. It comes with an english manual, which surprised me because the box is all in chinese. The manual still has photos from the old version. It gets a 4/5 from me. One star taken away due to me expecting the TMGC+C interface . Oh and if you're wondering, it smells like plasticky gas fumes. Games are from the Touma, Interface not really from Touma and characters probably not from Touma. EDIT: Oh, the pawn shop owner still smokes and Patrick is still the travel agent.
Thank you for reading!
Cyber Pet review later today or tomorrow.

Here is a few links of ones i saw ... are there any here that are real ?:
I was also looking at this one.... if i cut back a bit i can get her this one ... but is it real or fake please please help
So I went to a white elephant gift exchange, and I actually ended up getting a fake Gigapet (A friend of mine brought it and suggested that I choose her package :p)! It's called a Digapet (they got real creative, I know) but it seems to be just a generic v-pet because the back of the package says it has 160 pets. I opened it up but I haven't tried it out yet because I've heard these things sometimes don't go to sleep, and I don't want to be up all night with it. I read the instructions and they're actually pretty well put together, the English is pretty good and they're pretty well formatted. Although apparently you have to give it laxatives, which is pretty strange, but amusing. XD Has anyone else heard, or owned this fake?
Here’s another oddity, this time found on Mercari. Unfortunately, the listing there already sold, but nevertheless let’s take a looksy. Kids’ smart watches are all over online shops, but this one has a very unique feature packed in.
(Unfortunately I can't link the listing so credit to Mercari seller "ocean")
Behold the bootlegness in all its glory!!
1)Take a look at the living room. It’s practically the same! Not only that, but the panda character is an edit of Kikitchi’s sprite. Admittedly, this doesn’t look half bad. It’s actually kind of cute!
2)The lock screen is a stolen Bambi drawing! The watch face can be changed between a few different templates.
3)It also features stolen icons from the official Tamas, well, except for the t-shirt thing. The upscale versions of them are also custom sprites.
4)There are also some places to go, including a weird one in the bottom that might be a movie theater?
5)Talking to a weird pink blob 6)Homescreen
The watch also features a camera, photo gallery, and fitness stuff. There doesn’t appear to be buttons besides lock, volume, and reset, so this is most likely touch controlled. Later versions by A-Watch replace not-Kikitchi with a generic panda. BUT one listing on Amazon still offers this v-pet, and apparently pandas aren’t the only character! What to look for:
-Blue or pink wristband that reads “A-Watch”
-Flat surface around the screen with a black border around it and “OK” logo (later versions are a solid blue or pink)
-Look for mentions of a pet game or cat icon on the main menu
-No calling/texting/GPS tracking feature (common in other kids’ smart watches)
This reminds me of the QPet, and it’s nice they actually made (somewhat) original sprites instead of totally aping Bandai’s work. If you already have one, please share your thoughts. Is this knockoff worthy of its $30 pricetag?
