I used to run all my Tamas a few years back. Now I run like 3 max XD. Good on you! Excited to see more updates!

Thanks! I know at some point I'll narrow it down to a few, but since I'm rebuilding my collection I just want to try them all out as soon as they arrive. I'm also kind of curious to know what the record number of tamas is...maybe that will be my 2020 challenge :lol:

That's what I did back when I first got here! It got overwhelming quickly, but it's still something that I do when I pick up a bunch of new virtual pets at once.

Eventually a rebuild becomes a revival, a whole new collection, though, at which point the very idea is crazy. :lol:

I agree, at some point this will just be too stressful to call fun :P But I'm willing to see how far I can take it before then :lol:

Day 5 - Wedding Bells!

(Note: I'm still fine-tuning the photo process. It's challenging to take decent photos of the Akai, especially since the light changes drastically throughout the day in my apartment. Things should improve soon!)

Today began calmly, with the usual tamagotchi daily hygiene:


IMG-5292.jpgIMG-5293.jpgIMG-5294.jpgIMG-5296.jpg

 

And some fridge-foraging:

:IMG-5295.jpg

 

Oh yeah, and my V5 evolved! :chohimetchi: Here's the family lineup:

IMG-5289.jpgIMG-5290.jpgIMG-5291.jpg

 

As everyone (except the V5) is in at least teen stage, there wasn't much maintenance required. I decided to connect my Akais and suddenly...they were married! They had a pair of adorable baby boys:

IMG-5283.jpgIMG-5286.jpgIMG-5287.jpg


I was just getting familiar with the new red-pixel babies when the matchmaker arrived...three times! :D

I'm not picky when it comes to who my tamas marry, all tamagotchis are beautiful :tarakotchi:

My Keitai was matched with a Kuchipatchi, and had a lovely baby girl  :babytchi:

IMG-5297.jpgIMG-5298.jpg

My Entama was matched with Androtchi and had a baby girl as well!  :babytchi:

IMG-5299.jpg

 

And as I'm writing this the matchmaker has arrived for my V3 - who was also matched with Androtchi and had... another baby girl!  :babytchi:

IMG-5302.jpgIMG-5303.jpgIMG-5305.jpg

 

I'm sad to see my tamas all grown up and married off, but I'm glad they each found their perfect match :wub:

Tomorrow should bring some evolutions for my Osu/Mesu pair, Uratama, and V5. Very excited, especially for my Osu/Mesu because I specifically avoided looking at growth charts to maintain an element of surprise.

I find that, with this challenge, since I'm not giving 100% perfect care to every tama I'm getting more interesting evolutions. In the past I would manipulate my care in order to achieve the results I wanted, and would therefore get the same tamas over and over again. This way I'm experiencing more!

Question: what is your approach with marrying tamas via connection after they've been connected once? For example, my Akai twin boys are now brothers. Their marriages will be via Matchmaker, and if their respective children are boy & girl, I'm definitely NOT marrying them. But how long does one wait before it's not weird? Should I just get a third Akai to mix things up genetically? Maybe I'm overthinking it, but I would feel a bit strange having cousin-tamas marry, no matter how distant they are. Keitais, V3, and Akais are the versions I'm most interested in collecting for the shell colors, so maybe in the future I'll have enough to not worry about risky marriages :lol:

Day 6

Today began with two new arrivals!

IMG-5307.jpgIMG-5308.jpg


I do want to add these to the challenge, but I'd like to sync it with the departure of my V3 parent, so that the babies can grow up together. So it'll have to wait until tomorrow!

In other news, my Osu/Mesu pair were low on happiness, so as usual I gave them a snack. Suddenly they began to evolve...but it wasn't any evolution I've ever experienced!

IMG-5309.jpgIMG-5310.jpg


Meet Debutchi.

Capture-d-e-cran-2020-07-23-a-10-21-11.p

This is what happens when your tama reaches a weight of 99. It's a temporary evolution, but if you don't play games to revert the weight to at least 89, your tama will die in 24 hours. And with that ominous motivation in mind, I got to work and a few minutes later my pair reverted to normal:


IMG-5311.jpg


And a few hours later they both evolved! Here we have Kiwitchi and Pyonkotchi:

IMG-5316.jpgIMG-5315.jpg

I have to say I'm surprised I got two of the best evolutions for this generation. I haven't been neglecting them, but as the Debutchi debacle has illustrated, I was going heavy on the snacks rather than playing games. They're both super cute and I love them! I'll be connecting them later this evening as well, with updates tomorrow.

My Uratama also evolved into none other than Ura Furawatchi! That makes 3 Violetchis/Furawatchis total in this challenge!
IMG-5312.jpg


Other than that, things have been pretty uneventful. It's been a busy day at work so I haven't had much of a chance to play with the tamas but everything seems fine!

Tomorrow my V3, Keitai, and Akai parents may be leaving their babies, so I'll have a lot on my hands!

Day 7 

Wow, it's been a week since this challenge began! It feels like it's been a full month and at the same time only a day :lol:

Oh boy...today is off to a busy start. Looks like all the parents left their babies, which means I have 5 newborn tamas to take care of.

IMG-5319.jpgIMG-5320.jpgIMG-5321.jpgIMG-5322.jpgIMG-5323.jpg


But since that just isn't enough for me, I decided to start up my new V2, V3, and V4 as well - so that the babies would all by synced. Nothing like an extra challenge within a challenge B)

But before I begin the Ultimate Daycare, I decided to make sure the rest of my tamas were in good condition, since I would most likely be giving them a little less attention today. 

My V5 evolved into teen stage! I've never had this lineup before, so I'm very excited. Not that I've been neglecting my tamas during this challenge, but since I haven't been giving everyone perfect care I find that I'm getting more interesting results, which I enjoy.

IMG-5324.jpgIMG-5325.jpgIMG-5326.jpg


(I somehow forgot to take a photo of the third child and can't be bothered to do so right now)

My Osu/Mesu pair finally connected! At first I thought they were shaking their head 'no' again, but I realized they were frantically running back and forth. Was this excitement? 
I decided to physically connect them to see, and what ensued was the longest mating process I've ever seen in a tama featuring very cute synced music.

IMG-5329.jpg

IMG-5331.jpg


Pyonkotchi had twins, of course, and one was sent to Kiwitchi.


IMG-5333.jpg

IMG-5336.jpg


So I have my 2nd generation of Osu/Mesu to look forward to soon. Although this does bring up some confusing questions. As there's no matchmaker in the Osu/Mesu world, each pair is simply mated to get the next generation...so these twins will be mated to get generation 3. Huh :huh: . I guess that makes my thread about mating related tamas a bit obsolete now, seeing as outright inbreeding is acceptable (and apparently encouraged) in the tamagotchi world...:o

And now for the Ultimate Daycare! I started up my three new arrivals first, so that the eggs had time to hatch while I took care of the rest of the babies.

IMG-5337.jpgIMG-5338.jpgIMG-5339.jpg


Here's all the babies lined up!

IMG-5340.jpg


We have a total of 5 girls and 3 boys. 

I decided to start up the babies in pairs, starting with my Akai twins:

IMG-5341.jpg

Then my V3s:

IMG-5342.jpg


My Entamas (note: this photo was taken before the reset glitch described later in this log. The watermelon Entama is now a boy)

IMG-5345.jpg


And finally my Keitai and V2, since they don't currently have a matching pair:

IMG-5346.jpg

I have no experience with the V2, so I was surprised to see that there is a third food option, for "Treat". I'm excited to see what this is!

My V3s and V2 had fun connecting with each other for the first time, but I noticed that the Japanese tamas don't allow connection during baby stage. Maybe they're considered to be too delicate at this age for competitive games :lol:

IMG-5344.jpgIMG-5347.jpg

Oh no! As I'm writing this something strange happened with my watermelon Entama...as I attempted to connect both Entamas for the first time, my watermelon wouldn't connect and kept taking me to an unfamiliar menu. As everything is in Japanese, I just kept trying to exit as best I could. Well, finally I couldn't exit and it turns out that menu was the Download/Reset menu! And unfortunately I hit reset...:( I've heard about this Entama glitch and I just wish I had remembered it in the moment!

Well, on the bright side, the new baby is a boy so he can marry the other Entama...except it happened twice. -_- From what I understand this may have to do with old/low batteries, so I switched out the batteries and tried again...and it was fine!

Thankfully the second time it restarted I got another boy, and he evolved into the same tama, so no harm done!

And at the end of a very busy day, everyone evolved into toddler stage:

IMG-5349.jpgIMG-5350.jpgIMG-5351.jpg

IMG-5352.jpgIMG-5353.jpgIMG-5354.jpg


IMG-5355.jpgIMG-5356.jpg



Thankfully tomorrow is Saturday, so I can enjoy the company of my tamas and play plenty of games with all of them before they move on to teenager stage!

Day 8

Today was eventful!

First, my Uratama received her job - she's officially a carpenter:

IMG-5370.jpgIMG-5369.jpg

I wanted the job of 'adventurer' but failed the interview. Carpenter is good though! 

Later in the afternoon all of my toddlers (aside from the Entama pair) evolved, starting with my Akai twins who are, adorably enough, still twins! This time they're Darumatchi:

IMG-5371.jpgIMG-5372.jpg

I'm curious to see if they'll remain twins into adulthood since they're both boys from the same parents.

My V3 then evolved into Young Mimitchi:

IMG-5373.jpg

And somehow my V3, V2, and Keitai all evolved into Young Mametchi!

IMG-5388.jpg

 

Everyone had fun visiting each other today, and I'm very happy that my Entama pair is getting along without constantly sending poop, plague, and bugs to each other:


IMG-5377.jpg

 

My V3 pair are also getting along smoothly:

IMG-5379.jpgIMG-5382.jpg

 

And my Akai had a lot of fun bouncing around on a balloon today :lol:

IMG-5384.jpg


As for my Osu/Mesu pair, they're still taking care of their babies, but I think they might leave them tonight which means tomorrow I'll have another Daycare situation on my hands (though much less intense than yesterday's). I'm excited! I never reached the second generation with Osu/Mesu, and I'm curious to see which characters I'll get.

One thing I really like about the Japanese tamas is that whatever food you buy is permanent, unlike the English counterparts where each food item is consumed once. It's especially nice when you have previous generations that saved up for certain items, making the merchant's visits that much more special.

Well, that's all for today as everyone is asleep!

Seriously, they can send actual sickness to each other on the Japanese versions. It happened several times between the Keitai and V3 in the last generation, I don't understand why it's even a concept.

Days 9 & 10

I got caught up in the spirit of the lazy Sunday and totally forgot to post my log! I did document all the important events though, so we're covered...

Day 9

Yesterday was eventful! To begin with, my V5 evolved to their adult stages - I've had this group before but I'm excited about it because the characters are so cute and unique:

IMG-5402.jpgIMG-5403.jpgIMG-5404.jpgIMG-5405.jpg


 

Later in the afternoon my Uratama was visited by the Matchmaker and was paired up with Serebutchi (Celebtchi):

IMG-5392.jpgIMG-5393.jpgIMG-5396.jpg

 

I accepted, and they had an adorable baby boy!


IMG-5398.jpgIMG-5399.jpg



Not long after, my Entama pair evolved into teen stage - Young Memetchi and Gourmetchi!

IMG-5411.jpgIMG-5408.jpg



Day 10

Today began with many beeps for attention, as my Osu/Mesu pair left their babies! 


IMG-5407.jpg

 

Then the doorbell rang, and the Ichigo Yogurt Keitai I've been waiting for (to pair with the Ichigo Milk Keitai) arrived! (Don't worry, I ordered it before my self-imposed tama-ban). 


IMG-5406.jpg

The shell and screen are in perfect condition, though the sound was a tiny bit fried and the C button was just a little stuck - but since these are fixable and this shell is normally worth twice what I paid for it, I got straight to work.

I unscrewed the tama all the way, and saw that there was a single wire for sound that wasn't quite touching the solder, so with a pair of tweezers I gently pushed it to make contact. Then with a q-tip and some electronic cleaner spray, I wiped down the button contacts on the circuit board and the buttons themselves. I screwed everything back together, and it was as good as new! No sticky buttons, and perfect sound :tarakotchi:

I set it up tama #13, and hatched a tiny baby girl! She'll be best friends with my Keitai, I'm sure ^_^

IMG-5413.jpgIMG-5414.jpg



She evolved into Hitodetchi:


IMG-5416.jpg

 

And got to meet her friend for the first time (and was promptly gifted a box of poop...-_-)

IMG-5417.jpg

 

Other than these new arrivals, not much else happened today. Everyone is in the transitional period between evolutions so it's been pretty calm, which I'm grateful for since work has been busy.

Tomorrow my Osu/Mesu pair will evolve, which is exciting because I've never experienced the second generation before! My teens should all evolve into adults as well, so I have a busy day to look forward to.

There is poop in the box! I'll start taking photos of the weird things they send eachother so you all can see the poop, wasps, and plague skulls they send eachother. 

Thank you! I'm so glad it's entertaining and/or of use to you all :) It's been really fun logging, I hadn't done it before but it makes me appreciate the little things during the day so much more.

Day 11

Well, today was...interesting.

Let me start by saying that I love all of my tamas no matter what. But I can't help but feel a bit disappointed at one of my Akai twins evolving into a literal demon shrimp. Meet Tengutchi:

IMG-5419.jpg

The red pixels make it difficult to photograph but here's a closer look:
Capture-d-e-cran-2020-07-28-a-22-08-53.p

In contrast, his twin brother evolved into Kuchipatchi. 

IMG-5418.jpg


I noticed throughout the day that Tengutchi required constant attention, his hunger and happiness hearts depleted much faster than Kuchipatchi's did. Punishment for me messing up his care along the way, I guess. I'm just confused because I literally care for these two simultaneously - I seriously have one in each hand while I clean their poop, feed them, and play the games at the same time. They were the same weight and everything! Oh well...

Anyway before that bombshell, I was surprised to hear the evolution music when the only tama awake at 8am was my Familitchi who were already in adult stage...

This was a pleasant surprise! I somehow got the Petite family! I guess I underfed them at some point, but I'm not complaining, they're adorable:

IMG-5423.jpgIMG-5424.jpgIMG-5425.jpg


Meanwhile, my Uratama left her baby behind...


IMG-5420.jpg

 

We were off to a good start with his training, as I immediately caught him mid-poop and was able to get him on the toilet:

IMG-5429.jpg

He evolved into Haneotchi!

IMG-5434.jpg

 

My Osu/Mesu pair evolved into Puchitchi! 
IMG-5422.jpgIMG-5428.jpg



My new Keitai evolved into Ringotchi (don't mind the ghost in the photo, I moved the tama mid-snap). We had an adventure today - after completing yesterday's sound and button repairs, I realized I was unable to close the metal jump-ring as I had no pliers (I had opened it using a pair of scissors and a screwdriver...). Today I did some thinking and decided to walk to my tailor and ask if he had a pair of pliers to help me - and he did! He found the request very amusing but was a good sport, and I'm very grateful! I will be getting a set of pliers though, as I know I'll need them in the future.


IMG-5430.jpg

 

My other Keitai evolved into Kuchipatchi but I somehow forgot to take a photo and they're all asleep right now.

 

My V3s evolved...sigh. Yet another minor disappointment if I'm being totally honest.


First, I love Androtchi - no problem there.


IMG-5431.jpg

 

But I really cannot stand Paparatchi. I think I dislike Paparatchi and Bill with equal fervor. It's no matter, tomorrow they'll reach marriage age and as they have full hearts in eachother's friend list they'll be married in no time and I will have a fresh start!


IMG-5432.jpg

...the more I stare at this photo the more I feel bad for disliking Paparatchi. But I can't help it!


Finally, my V2 evolved! I was very happy about this. I've always found the V2 characters to be very cute and unique, and since I had no experience with them before I was extra excited. This was one of the top tamas for me!

I know this tama comes around after making care mistakes, but I don't mind. I find it more interesting.
(Side note: I do need to take apart and clean this tama once I get the proper tools)

IMG-5435.jpg


Anyway, I've definitely learned a lot about tama care from this challenge. I'm still waiting on 3 more tamas in the mail from orders placed a few weeks ago (an English V4, another V3, and a P2), so I'll be continuing this challenge until I've received them and added them to the mix. 

But as we all know, this isn't totally sustainable, and sometimes I feel like I'm missing out on the little joys of raising a tama because I'm so focused on just keeping them all happy and alive.

I think after this challenge I'll focus on them in pairs and go in-depth on each version. I'll definitely create logs for them too! I'll probably start with the Keitai pair.

Anyway, that's all for today! Tomorrow I'm expecting some marriages and evolutions, so stay tuned :)

      Hello, hello, I'm a long time fan of tamagotchi but a new member to tamatalk! 
      I decided to start a log for the lavender Wonder Garden tamagotchi I just got, which was one part a nostalgia purchase and another part mental health purchase. As silly as it sounds, tamagotchis helped me through depression  and anxiety as a kid. They're very much security blankets to me. 
      However this log won't really record my mental health, just the tamagotchi so don't worry about that.

      Forgive my phone's crummy camera, but I got a baby girl! I've always been more partial to female tamas personally!
      Also yes, that is my personal art! I find tamagotchi's simple designs lend well to being good warm up sketches so expect seeing some doodles my tamas now and then.

      So this morning my Hashizoutchi died at 18 years old.

      It was the longest that I've managed to keep a Tamagotchi ever as far as I can remember. It was on the Tamagotchi Game Boy game, on which I'm playing what I decided to label the "PoorBoy's Tamagotchi". The rules are that you can only take care of your Tamagotchi if the in-game clock matches your real-life clock. I've made a post about it here:
      https://www.tamatalk.com/IB/topic/199133-how-to-make-tamagotchi-for-game-boy-more-like-a-real-tamagotchi/

      Upon its death I was labeled a genius by some stranger aliens who took Venus to their home planet.

      Apparently they have the ability to revive dead Tamagotchi so Venus was revived and made an Honorary Member of... something lol. They dressed him up weidly and that's last time I saw him.

      So as promised, here is my log (@Penguin-keeper) . I'll be covering mostly the 3 Tamagotchi games on Game Boy. I'll be trying to get every character in every game, which I'm sure will keep me occupied for a long time. I'll also mix in some Android virtual pet apps so that the log will hopefully remain fresh and interesting.
      I'm starting with Tamagotchi 1 on GB, since for the time being it's my favourite of the 3 Game Boy games.

      As you can see I've already picked 4 of the eggs, with Venus being the 4th. It's time to hatch that green one which I'll be naming Gaia (I'm uninspiringly naming them after planets, before Venus was Mercury). I wonder what happens when you hatch all the eggs and the last one dies, there has to be a cinematic or something, we'll see.

      So here is Gaia. Since I've been raising Tamagotchis since a very long time and know all the rules, I'm adding myself a new rule to spice things up: for this run, I'm not allowed to check Gaia's stats apart from its age and weight. In real life, your pet or kid doesn't have a hungry and happy meter, you have to guess how it's feeling.
      I've also decided thar Gaia will be a nerd, I'm only going to give it Math training. The only exercise it will be doing will be to maintain its weight. We'll see how it'll grow up and how long it'll live with this education.
      I think that's all for today, I'll try to post everyday if my schedule allows.

      At this point for me, it's less of a tradition to keep a log than it is to start one. Half of the posts on Tamatalk are just going to be all my unfinished logs! ;A; But not this time, my dear readers. For I have dug out a Tamagotchi version that is very special to me, and with... a lot of hesitation, actually, have started it up for the first time in what feels like forever!
      As the title may give away, I am running (and logging!) my pink iD L! Back when I first joined Tamatalk, these were very popular, and also everywhere unlike the listings you see today. I got both my iD Ls - the aforementioned pink version and my now-rare Princess Spacey ver - back in 2013 for less than $100 each, and I'm glad I did because nowadays, oh boy do you have to sell your own soul to get your hands on one mint in box.
      Of course, this comes with its own issues - being that I've had these for seven years now, they've accumulated a ton of scratches, which is where most of my hesitation comes from. For those who aren't in the know, colour Tamagotchis - particularly their screens - are highly prone to scratches if you're not careful, and they can show up real easily on the screen as these annoying rainbow-like textures. My 4U and m!xs have managed to stay safe, luckily, but my iD Ls and my precious little P's have not had the same luck nor fortune. And don't even get me started on their front faceplates - I'd be able to actually afford a mint iD L with the amount of scratches they have.
      However, it is all cosmetic in the end. And it's not like I'm ever getting a new iD L unless I risk it for a used version, so I may as well take you all down with me. I've got a Pac-Man Anniversary Mini/Nano in the mail right now as we speak, so with a little patience I'll hopefully be able to log it soon!  Let's begin!
      ~*~*~*~*~*~
      iD L
      I put some new batteries in a few days ago, and was welcomed by a little Kingyobotchi! For those not in the know, they are the best-care female toddler character on the iD L. I also discovered that my iD L was on its 3rd generation last time I played it - I had previously raised a Kikitchi and an Agetchi, respectively, both of which are bad-care adult characters.
      Determined to take good care of my next Tamagotchi, I proceeded to get the next highest-care teenager, Painaputchi - and didn't look at a growth chart, which is extremely rare for me! I ended up raising an adorable little Chamametchi:

      I forgot how photogenic the iD L was. You can't even see any of the scratches on it's screen!
      (While writing this, I realized I hadn't given Chamametchi a name yet! I searched up the nearest random name generator, and blessed her with the title of London.)
      While Chamametchi isn't the... highest care character out there, she's still very cute (and not a teen, strangely). I decided to go for her Tamatomo Stamps - for those who don't have an iD L, every adult 'gotchi has three special likes that cause them to do a cute little animation + give you what's dubbed a Tamatomo Stamp. You earn the last Tamatomo stamp by having your adult-stage Tamagotchi for 72 hours (or, at least 5 years old, if I recall correctly). You can earn any Tamatomo Stamp in any order, and they're a fun little incentive to spend more time with your tama! Plus, it also gets them stamped in the memory book (which is how I discovered the previous tamas I raised), as well as a bonus cutscene when they get married. 
      Anyway, I decided to go for London's Tamatomo Stamps straight away! We decided to head to the park, as the market was currently being held:

      It's Kuchipatchi's mum! What she's doing here, I have no idea.
      Items at the market are usually marked down by 30%, so I wanted to get a good deal. I accidentally ended up leaving by way of the C button with London in tow.

      It was raining outside when I took this photo! Who knew Tamagotchi Planet had the same weather cycles... and timezone... wait a second.
      We decided to visit again later - for now, it was off to the TamaDepa to get something I thought London would like. The hunt for her Tamatomo stamps was on! I rarely search for these without consulting a guide, so there was an exciting factor to our adventure.
      I quickly swept into the accessories aisle, and bought London a pair of cat ears! It was time for the moment of truth...
        
      ...I mean, she's still happy at least?
      Unfortunately, it was not meant to be. If your Tamagotchi's latest item/accessory/food is Tamatomo-worthy, they'd usually start jumping high in the air with hearts everywhere! But London was quite mellow. She still defied gravity in her celebration, though.
      I didn't want to stop there, however - maybe an outfit was what London was looking for! We went back to the market again, as outfits can be super expensive:
       
      It's Makiko's mum! ...I just remembered that Makiko's name doesn't end in 'tchi'.
      I was running low on money, so we sold off the Tamamori Tree item I got out of the toy seed I planted in London's backyard yesterday. Don't ask.
      Anyway, we had enough money to buy London a lovely red kimono:
       
      I forgot how fun it was to dress up your tamas on the iD L...
      And thus the moment of truth began once again!

      Guess what happened next.
      ...And yet it also was not meant to be! Not only had I spent a ton of gotchi points on two outfits that weren't Tamatomo-worthy, now London looked like a weird anime character. She didn't seem to mind though.

      One last photo before the post gets too big...
      I decided to stop our Tamatomo hunting there for now. I took London to the different locations in the food menu, but none of the meals and snacks there seemed to activate a Tamatomo Stamp... not even the sweetest treats around! ...That, and it ended with me accidentally discovering Chamametchi's least favorite food. By then my pockets were totally empty. I'm sure I'm missing something here... maybe I should be more open to London's tastes and stop assuming that all she likes is pink stuff just by the colour of her ears? The irony is real.
      Next post: more stamp hunting! Meeting a Tama-pet at the park enough times to create a bond with them and take them home... I missed those guys on the 4U and m!x, they were useless but I loved them anyway!

      Hey guys!
      I've been thinking of getting a tama for a long time now, and one time I just felt like getting a knockoff. Just to see how vpets are like.
      But, speculations..
      I mean, why not just get a real one? They're much better than the knockoffs anyway!
      Can you guys please help me?
      Thanks~

      I should've started this log earlier, but whatever... But at least I have a name for it now! 
      Seeing as I'm still figuring this log out, the format might switch between a normal log and a roleplay sort of log (the tama and me talking to eachother).
      Anyways, I'm on my 23rd gen of tamas now. But meet our current tama, Jazz! 

      Nothing much happened, mostly because Jazz is a little baby and you can't really do much with them.
      Jazz: Hey!
      That's not really an insult. Plus, your only a baby for, like, an hour. 
      Jazz: I guess.. But.. That doesn't mean I have to like it!
      I guess not. 
      Jazz ate a lot, and would occasionally play with his bear. Which makes me wonder, where does the toy bear go once your tama becomes a child? You can't see it in the items, but what happens to it?
      Jazz: What?
      Nothing!
      For a while, Jazz watched YouTube with me and hopped around his room until he was tired and took a lil nap.

      Once upon a time, in the year 2045... 
      Tamagotchis were starting to get boring in the world, and Bandai was starting to get desperate. They had to create a new Tamagotchi. One that would get everyone into the craze again.
      So, they created the UltraTama.
      A Tamagotchi that had all  of the previous Tamagotchi model features in one.
      When they released it, it was a megahit. People absolutely loved them.
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      There was a girl named Hana who was enjoying her new UltraTama very much. She brought it everywhere, and had fun connecting her device with other people's UltraTamas.
      ( To be continued!~)
