A report by Serebii.net today suggests that an officially-licensed Pokemon Eevee Tamagotchi Nano might be on the way!
This is the image that the report mentions;
I like Eevee, so if this turns out to be true, then I absolutely want this Tamagotchi.
I purchased a non-working Tamagotchi Nano with the intention of making it work again, but when I got it, I quickly realized it's not set up the same way as the newer minis, or even any other regular Tamagotchi. I looked up how to take it apart and there is absolutely no information anywhere, but I have figured it out! Sorta.
When you take the battery cover off, there are two screws that hold the casing on the bottom half, but there's two more screws hidden under the plastic shapes on either side of the speaker holes. I had to rough up my (broken) nano a bit to work those out, and I did damage the plastic some. I'm not sure how to safely take those plastic parts out just yet, I'm sure there's a tool for them, but I'm not sure what the plastic parts are even called, I guess they're just tiny protective covers.
Anyway, I just thought I'd make this post to potentially help anyone who is needing to take their Nano apart, feel free to discuss ideas about safely removing the plastic parts.

The clock and capacitor definitely need to be replaced
Good evening everyone!
My tamagotchi nano arrived today, and since there are not many logs or topics dedicated to those teeny tiny tamas, I thought it was worth starting a separate log on it. So, here we go!
I went to the post office around around 12:30 to receive a letter from France. Afterwards, I walked to the nearby park, sat on a bench and opened it. It was wrapped neatly with a cute "thank you" note stuck on it. The egg was so tiny, more than I expected. I always thought that the P1/P2 were so small but this was significantly smaller than that, and round. Reminded me of some eggs of small birds. I had brought some LR44 batteries in my bag, so I pressed the button on the back with a pen, opened it and put them inside. I have to say that the beeping is kind of softer and more "melodic" than the Connections' and vintages', but also pretty low, so if you keep your tamagotchis in your bag it may be a bit hard to hear sometimes. I heard it just fine when at home, but outdoors it can go unnoticed.
Anyway, a bouncy egg appeared on the screen right after:
Now, many people say that the screen is set too deep inside, but I don't find it that deep. I was expecting it to be way more sunken in. It's just a bit difficult to capture in photos because it's very reflective and so small that you have to do macro-photography.
A minute after, it hatched into an adorable beaked tangerine. It was white, which means it's a boy, as I've heard.
He was jumping up and down like that, looking rather happy, but when I pressed the C button, which I guess in the nano is the equivalent of asking "hey how are you" he made a dizzy face. So I fed him 4 bowls of rice - tried to feed him a fifth but he didn't accept it. He also got 2 candies for being such a cute fruit and I played the game a couple of times. The game is pretty fun compared to the P1/P2 games. Then I pressed the C button again to ask him if he's satisfied and he came closer making happy faces and beeps. I put him in a small coin purse and back in my bag, and went on with my day, while checking on him way too often, in the meantime: turns out that, especially for a baby, he's not needy at all. I think in all the day he only pooped twice, and he didn't even get sick once.
I took him out in the bus to play the game a few more times, and just because he was way too cute to keep inside the bag, and even took him with me to the library, where I went to study.
However, I didn't feed him any snacks or meals. Approximately 5 hours after he hatched, I was in the dentist's office for my boyfriend, so I took him out while in the waiting room. He had a poop next to him and while he was still bouncing happily, when I pressed the C button he looked dizzy. I fed him 4 meals and checked again. He turned his back on me, so I fed him another 3 candies and played a couple of games. I also decided to name him Sky.
Sky devouring candy in the dentist's office: THUG LIFE.
At 8 o 'clock I heard some beeping from my bag and saw Sky had already laid down in his bed, neatly covered by a blanket. I turned off the light and let him sleep. That was his first day of life. I'm extremely curious to see how he will evolve tomorrow. To be continued!
I've had my tamagotchi nano for a very long time but over the years, due to a few mishandlings, I've dropped it a few times and it's not functioning as it should be.
I can get it to start after putting in the batteries and restarting it - hearing the beep sound and then it loads the clock screen - but after about 8 seconds, the screen turns off and it's dead again. The batteries I use are maxell alkaline batteries and brand new so that doesn't seem to be the problem.
I'd like to be able to open up my tama and access the circuit board to see if I can fix it myself. I've not been able to find a disassembling guide for the tamagotchi nano so I would be grateful if anyone had any idea how to do it. Besides removing the two screws, I don't know what else I can do. Help?
Bandai Japan will be rereleasing the Tamagotchi Mini (Chibi Tamagotchi) in Japan this April!
The Tamagotchi Mini was first introduced in 2005 as a low maintenance virtual pet, and even an accessory that could be clipped onto your backpack. The Mini features a fraction of the characters and features of any other Tamagotchi’s, keeping it simple like the original Tamagotchi series back in the 90’s.
To further celebrate the 20th anniversary of Tamagotchi, Bandai Japan is rereleasing the Tamagotchi Mini in Japan! Although there is limited information provided about this new Mini there appears to be 6 characters, five characters are listed, and one is kept a secret on the official website.
There are 6 different shell designs for the 2017 Mini, all of which are identical to the original Tamagotchi shells. Fans in Japan will not have to wait until April to get their hands on 2017 Mini! The Tamagotchi Mini will be released on April 8th, 2017 and will cost 1620 Yen. There will be an event in mid March where fans can get a hold of them weeks before the official launch, more information to follow.
We all know about Aaron that lived roughly 122 days back in 2007. (Hop on over to Tamenagerie to check him out if you haven't: http://www.tamenagerie.com/v3.html)
One thing I've always wondered is how long to MOST people keep their tamas (or other digital friends) alive?
My personal bests are:
Tamagotchi (Clear Yellow P2) - 17 years
Tamagotchi Angel (Pink) - ~12 years (I got twins!!)
Nano Puppy (Original Version Green Shell) - 51 years
Tamagotchi 4U (White Shell) - 5 generations (kept getting the same characters over and over so I quit)
Tamagotchi Ps (Yellow Shell) - 3 generations (was playing at the same time as 4U and couldn't keep them straight)
I feel like the original tamas are pretty hard to keep alive after the first 10 days or so, so I'm proud of my measly 17 years! What are your personal bests?
