Fake Tamagotchis Are All over the Internet

Recommended Posts

Never meant to infer that those were fakes - I omitted that word as it seemed was already stressed above. I was more replying to the person about the poundland pets being inferior to tamagotchi. I'm not great with fora and direct quoting. It's a bit of a faff. 

I really wish they would come out with multiple tiered pets as well. I'd love to be able to buy all 4 Tamagotchi On's coming out, but my husband would murder me if I did lol.

I have two of the "Kofun" pets but I haven't really messed around with them. However, they seem to run on the generic bunny rom as that was the first thing that popped up when I started it. I will say they have absolutely terrible construction and one of the screws in the back cover is just drilled into the plastic with nothing to hold onto. That renders it completely useless for anchoring and thus the whole device will shut off quite easily. I have tried prying off the metal connectors embedded to the back cover and just duct taping them to the batteries, which is much better. Just for reference, the Kofun pets are modeled after the Tamagotchi School/Tamasuku.

I keep seeing these online and it makes me upset. You can get these fakes for a cheap price, but the Tamagotchi Connections of my childhood cost $35 or more now! And I did see a YouTube video of the fake Color from Wish. I was laughing when Patrick came on because a Nickelodeon character does not belong the Tamagotchi world.

I have seen these in public. I saw the heart variant of the Jia-Yun pet at both Hot Topic and Marshall's. Hot Topic also had a variant of the same pet that fooled you into thinking it was a Color, and to make matters worse, it was next to some real Tamagotchis.

The heart variant of the Jia-Yun pet also appeared in the Schooled episode "Tamagotchis and Bells" alongside some real ones. Coincidentally, this aired the same day I saw the same pet at Marshall's.

I really agree with you about the fake tamagotchis matter, not only regarding to tamagotchis, fake goods are just people trying to rip off money on other peoples brand names while selling lies its actually disgusting, tho i checked the link you attached it says there "pixa pet" it doesn't look like a fake, just looks like a virtual pet device? 
im asking this because with the fake tamagotchis the matter is that they use the brand name on their package or claim its a bandai device but i guess there is no law against just making a virtual pet game.

@Arissu - You're right that it's not trying to fool anyone, though I think that the big problem with the Pixa Pet, there, is that it's using some actual Tamagotchi sprite-art on its surface, so it's still problematic in that regard. :P

True that it's problematic 😕 
I feel like there are a lot of grey areas in the law regarding this matter which makes it possible for sellers to find loopholes and do things like that..
I think the best thing to do as a costumer is really check out the package and look for logos, check the seller for certifications etc..really as costumers we should protect ourselves by learning and making research before buying anything.

I’d thought I’d share this; it’s a “V1” that’s “SUPER RARE” on eBay. Here it is, pretty funny! It’s obvious that there trying to “draw” (although I must comply, it looks a bit like a two-year old squiggled Memetchi’s eyes! :P) Mimitchi, Kutchipatchi and Memetchi, but can’t use Bandais design so try to pass them off as these.

Also, thank you so much for all of the comments, likes, and 12,000 views! Never in a million years would I think my blog post would get this far! :D (I’m also incredibly grateful for this form being left open!)

And we're glad that you posted it! :) This topic tends to attract substantial replies containing quality information and discussion, and that brings something worthwhile to the community.

As for that "V1", wow. A "SUPER RARE" virtual pet by "BANDAN"! :lol: And the shell design is more reminiscent of the Gen 1/Gen 2 era than the Connection line, to boot! I do wonder what software it runs, though.

Why, thank you! :) 

I agree (I promise, I’m not being bias!), it’s been credited and mentioned in quite a few other forums (including your Fake Database!) and it makes me really happy to see people enjoying and using my post! (-:

Knockoff Tamagotchis are very common in the market nearby my house. I saw some fakes there, including a talking Lovelitchi doll with lights and had her English voice (🤔). I’ll make a topic about it tomorrow maybe.
