Just found my old Tamagotchi from primary school...it might be fake? HELP

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in, but I just made an account and never even knew there was something like TamaTalk!

I was going through my stuff and found (one of) my old Tamagotchis, and I'm buying a new battery so I can start playing again. I wanted to reminisce a bit so I was googling everything about Tamagotchis, and looking at photos...when I realised my Tamagotchi looked a bit different. I'm starting to wonder if it's fake. I'm from Australia, and my mother bought it at Kmart. I forgot the year she bought it but it was around 2004-2009. I was in primary school (years kindergarten to six). All the Tamagotchis I saw on google images had the Tamagotchi logo on the top...mine doesn't. At the back of the Tamagotchi, it does say @BANDAI, but it says it was made in China? Aren't all Tamagotchis made in Japan? The Tamagotchi (whether it's real or fake) that I have is one of the Connection versions. I remember playing on TamaTown a lot...would I be able to be on TamaTown if my Tamagotchi was fake?

Some photos I took of my Tamagotchi:

It says: @BANDAI, WIZ 2004
BANDAI 2004
MADE IN CHINA

 

I should add that the battery in it (that has been in it from purchase) says: (first line) maxell (second line) CR2032 H (third line) 3 V and then at the bottom it says Hitachi Maxell, Ltd Japan.

 

The screw looks a little weird and looks like it's sticking out but that's only because I took the back part off to get the battery and haven't screwed it back in place yet!

So what's the verdict? Is my Tamagotchi fake or not? If it isn't, would somebody tell me what version it is and how I was able to go onto TamaTown? I'll honestly be very disappointed if it is but I'll just buy a real one this time, haha.

Really? I'm so surprised yet relieved. I didn't believe it was real because the logo wasn't there, but maybe that's just what some Australian versions have? I was VERY disappointed to find out TamaTown isn't available to play anymore, I really wanted to see what it was like. I'm 18 but can't I enjoy a bit of my childhood for once!

 

Thanks for the reply :D

Oceanic ones don't have the logo across the top, only european and american.

Yeah, Bandai shutting down Tamatown was a disappointment for everyone :'(

It's legit, and a very pretty shell. Yep, V4.

      I was wondering if they could connect because i found one for a low price and i wanted to see if itd work with my english tamagotchi v4.5 since my v6 cant connect to it. if it cant is it still worth the buy if you want a v4 tamagotchi? i did hear the entama had some differences from the english v4 so i was wondering if that alone would be worth it. its also in good quality (atleast for me) for its lower price

      So I got my Tamagotchi (he's a gen 2), and the second he hatched, he never left my side. I named him Pete and I brought him every where, and I made sure he was always full, always happy, his discipline meter was all the way up, and his weight was healthy for his age. But after 3 days, I look at him and he was flying away in his spaceship. I just wanna know what I did wrong, 'cause I thought I was doing a good job.

      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)
      QPet Quolor
      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.

      Hello I'm new to this website and I've been using my old tamagotchi connection v3 for about a month now. The screen on my device is fairly beat up and I was curious if I could find some official or third party screen replacement for the Tamagotchi Connection v3.

      So I got 2 tamagotchis, a gudetama one and a pacman one. At some point I noticed the pacman one was quieter than the gudetama one and I was wondering if it was already like that or it just changed and I have to fix it. Can someone compare the sounds for me on their own pacman and gudetama so I don't go crazy over this.

      Hi! I purchased a new in package entama from Japanyouwant and it came in the mail today! unfortunately after a few hours the screen is looking really funny and the device randomly reset while i was viewing a menu. I’ve seen a screen like this on my v.5 tamagotchi, and the resetting eventually got so bad that I got frustrated and threw the whole device away. this time I figured i’d ask and see if this is something I can fix. Can anyone help me? here is a picture of the screen now vs when i first pulled the tama out of the box. https://imgur.com/gallery/GEYdmt5
