Recently I've been scanning Ebay while attempting to sell off a few of my Tamas when I came to the realization that the once cheaper sales of Tamagotchis from Japanese buyers are steadily raising their pricing to match US sellers, but with huge shipping costs and 1+ month wait time to receive the Tama.
Now, that's not the case with all the Japanese sellers, I personally saw some rather amazing Tamagotchi Angels star out rather cheap on auctions, but By It Nows are mainly what I'm talking about now.
I understand the large mark up in price when people sell locally. It's a common practice for US sellers to do such on items that are rather uncommon to rare in US markets, but why are the Japanese sellers starting to do the same? Wouldn't people rather buy from US sellers instead? Maybe i'm just thinking too hard into this.
Another note worth mentioning that certain Tamas seems to sell best in phases. What I mean by this is that a month ago P1s and P2s sold as well as the Tamagotchi Connections, but here lately are a very hard press sell. Even if you just stick to Connections, a V1 is next to impossible to sell against a V2 and a V2 next to impossible to a V4/5 (I skip v3 because I don't see them sell well to start with).
When it comes to Japan sellers, this doesn't seem the issue. The sells of all versions seem to be rather stable across the board. Again, maybe I'm thinking too hard into this, but this has been what's in my thoughts here lately as a Tamagotchi buyer, seller, and collector.
What are your thoughts? : ) Love to hear them
I was shopping around on Amazon the other day, and I found this. It's a Zhu Zhu pets virtual pet. Does anyone know anything about this or happen to have one because I can't seem to find any information on it. Thank you!!
Hey! Today, I was experimenting around with my Japanese and ended up finding this piece of artwork:
Tanpopo: (Tomomi..... awae (??? Not too sure about this symbol) mo.....。)
I guess Tanpopo adores her or something. Glad to see the Japanese fandom haven't forgotten about those two!
Have any of you found cute or weird Japanese artwork of Tamagotchi? Send in some stuff you've found!
Hello fellow TamaTalkers!
A few weeks back I went on a trip to Japan and I was able to drop by the Tama Depa store located in Harajuku District in Tokyo. It was one of the highlights of my trip and I figured I'd take some photos and share it with everybody!
Of course, on the storefront is a display of the latest Tamagotchi device, the Tamagotchi m!x!
Right behind this same display sits a bunch of Tamagotchi-designed food items! I bought one of the Mametchi-branded Tamagotchi Drops
I docked my m!x on their Tamagotchi m!x station and was able to grab a few items and met some new characters.
Plush section - they have quite a bunch of little Tamagotchi stuffed plushes of many different varieties and keychains.
I've always wanted a Mametchi plush, so I did not pass up this opportunity!
Kuchipatchi is still pretty much popular in Japan, hence his own line of products (Sorette Kuchipatchi) has its own dedicated shelf space!
Some other miscellaneous stuff (and Tamagotchi donuts!) :
I walked out of the store a one happy kid - and yeah that Tamagotchi song that's being played inside on a loop is stuck in my head for the rest of the day!
Though I am slightly disappointed that they don't sell 4U+s anymore (I still don't have that version); I can say that I love the place and I'm definitely going back there!
Also props to my aunt and cousins who live there and taught me how to use the local trains.
I'm not exactly sure of what else to post, so let's use this thread to talk about Tama Depa, shall we?
