Tamagotchi Saniro Meets and Tamagotchi Fantasy Meets have been discontinued?

Recommended Posts

Japan You Want doesn't have any Saniro or Fantasy Meets in stock, despite having all the other versions. This likely means Bandai for whatever reason has discontinued them, likely due to Covid-19.

Maybe they’re just in short supply of those particular models (especially - as you mentioned - during a global pandemic)?

No stock doesn’t necessarily mean they’ve been discontinued. Is Japan You Want the only supplier of Sanrio / Fantasy Meets? Are they still being offered by other suppliers? Maybe it’s just a general shortage caused by Covid?

It's possibly because of Covid or.. high demand?

JapanYouWant had both Sanrio Meets and Fantasy Meets in stock last time I checked about a week ago. These models have not been discontinued.

There's absolutely tons of both of these models available (as brand new condition) on eBay.

Amazon Japan also has the Sanrio Meets in stock for the standard retail price (sold directly by Amazon, not by third-party sellers), at the time of writing. They have 8 left, but don't have a restock date.

There's no reason for Bandai to discontinue popular and profitable models at a time when spending on toys and games is way up due to the pandemic, so my assumption is just that the pandemic has constrained supply.
