I had an original red tamagotchi when I was young, got it only a few months after they released here in the US. Gosh that's over 20 years ago

Yellow w/ orange buttons P1 that my grandma bought when they originally came out in America. I never really played it though, I did pull the tab once but got so overwhelmed by the baby stage that I paused it and promptly forgot abt it until the batteries died... (newspaper smack) bad Junkfood! I later got a Music Star that I deeply cherished, lost for a couple years, then found again. I think both of these are in storage. Also had a Tama-Go at one point but have literally no clue where it is....thats all the tamas Ive ever had

I do! I went by my cousins for christmas and they got me a v1. I had no idea what it was. I thought its poop was the little hershey's kisses. Every time it turned into an adult I'd reset it. One day the matchmaker came and I got all excited and realized I didn't need to reset it. Yeah....

So, what about you guys?
My first tamagotchi didn't go so well..

I got him for Easter. I named him Henry, and the only thing I new about it is that it dies.
I was on the phone with my friend and he didn't know how to play with it so he said to starve it.
I had to read the instructions. After an hour, I loved it. I ALWAYS had it in my hand. But I fed it too much snacks and disciplined him at a bunch of wrong times.
On day three, he began to make the death sound. I started crying and screaming that he is dying.
Yeah.. 🥲

I remember my first Tamagotchi so well. It was like the one in the attached photo.
I got this when I was about 10 years old around 1996/7 and was absolutely distraught when I lost it. Still have no idea where it went but suspect it flew off my bike at some point whilst I was cycling wildly round the estate I grew up on :ROFLMAO:
If I ever got the chance to purchase this shell again, I definitely would!

I am literally currently running my first Tama! A v3 I got when I was 6 and I still remember being in Toys R Us with my Mum and struggling to choose a shell (I was between the union jack and the pink hearts. My socialist adult self is glad I went with the pink hearts)

That's the exact same shell that my first one was, too! :biggrin: It's such an iconic design, to me.
That's amazing!
You're right, every time I see a photo of that shell it takes me right back to that time. How exciting it was to have a tamagotchi for the first time!

It was always so exciting to see the different shells in toys r us.
The v3 is a great tama :)

I'm a lot younger (and live in New Zealand), so mine might seem a bit weird to some of the people here haha, but my first tama was the Tamatown Tama-go! -Looking at the time it came out, I must've been about 6 at the time? But I can remember it very well :eek:)

I live in a very small town in New Zealand, and they were at the time available for sale in NZ, but not my town (my town consists of a lot of smaller stores, rather than chains, so this is pretty standard here haha); My best friend Hayley and I went for a trip out of town (I believe for her birthday) and her Mum bought a Tamagotchi EACH for the two of us. - I believe mine had Mametchi (though it could've been Kuchipatchi) on the top, and it had a green shell.
- It was from the Warehouse (a Walmart-like store in my country), and I believe we might've been in either Hamilton or Te Kuiti?

My memory's a bit confused as I was quite young - but I either ended up with 2 Tama-gos, or, what I think it might've been, a Tama-go and an additional figure. I specifically remember having a Mametchi and a Kuchipatchi figure, though, and I think my friend Hayley getting an extra figure that was Memetchi or Violetchi/Flowertchi (she preferred the girl characters I believe, while Mametchi was my favourite).
I loved the little characters at the top, the Tamagotchi itself is great, but I feel like having a physical toy/figure of the character really added to the experience for me (although I was initially a little confused, as I thought that the figure would mean my getting that character straight away in the game).

My Tama-go was, and still is, one of my most treasured possessions,
but when I was about 14-15 I think I may've left it at the house of someone I'm not longer in contact with, it may now be lost.

I'm not sure if I have any photos of my Tama-go, but below is a picture I found online that looks just like the one I had!

side note: I also remember me and the same friend watching Tamagotchi: The Movie after one of us found it at our local video store. - I really loved it, and could remember it pretty well before re-watching it haha so it must've stuck.
