I'm definitely getting caught up in the hype, and I'm tempted to buy one of the pretty remakes of the P1 Tamagotchi, despite my temporary moratorium on buying more tama's for myself. *shakes my angry wallet that's clutching the down payment I've saved so far* :biggrin:

I know should just boot up my V1 or something or buy another P2 if I REALLY want a vintage style one because I enjoy the minigame more, but it's that FOMO you know? :newmametchi: Maybe I should just do a livestream or something 🤷🏻‍♀️

What are you planning to do to celebrate a quarter of a century of Vpets? Are you buying a new tama? Are you hatching an old one? Are you just going to watch everyone else lose their ding dang minds while enjoying a big bowl of popcorn?

I started up a rerelease P1 recently so that's kinda my anniversary fun :3 I want to buy something new but IDK, I also shouldn't be spending any more money right now lol. I wanted the Magic White On but it's sold out T_T I might just grab the Pac-Man since that's kinda cheap :)

The pac man ones are the only ones ever left at game stop :lol: I keep going in hoping they'll have new stuff in stock but barnes and noble has the remakes 👀

And oh no! I think there's a way to have the Zon remind you if it restocks.
And nice! Are you logging your P1 adventures? (人 •͈ᴗ•͈)

I’m definitely planning on hatching vintage vpets since I haven’t properly played with some of them!

Such a funny coincidence that I’m planning on hatching them on Friday and didn’t realize it’s Tamagotchi 25th anniversary! :biggrin:

It’s my birthday today and I have more new tamagotchi’s than you can shake a stick at :) I even decided to get a Pix despite reading the bad reviews as I saw the pink one was discounted and I also had some credit card points saved up. I got it for $7! I figured at that price I wouldn’t feel bad if I disliked it. So far I’m liking the Pix a lot though. I haven’t played with it a ton yet, but the touch buttons don’t seem to bother me. That back battery cover was a doozy though. I had to search up how to open it. I felt like I was going to break it. Does anyone know: do you ever see the profile photo you take on the Pix during setup again? I looked around a but but I couldn’t find it yet.

Boot up your V1! I wanna play my V1 too. I’ve had to pause mine as there is too much going on for me here today. Gotta love the connections and the legit pause feature. And hey, popcorn is pretty tasty too!

I think that I'll be hatching my current-favourite Tamagotchi, which is a Sunset design Tamagotchi Original Gen 1. :tarakotchi:

I can hardly believe that it's been 25 years - I can still remember when they came to the West in 1997! :oo

I love my Pix; I'm nearing the end of my 3rd generation and still enjoying it quite a bit. I did have problems with the battery cover too. I'm using a 3mm flathead to unscrew it, I just kinda did trial and error with my screwdrivers. Is there a better option do you know?

And yeah I don't think that picture ever comes back up. I've explored the device pretty thoroughly and haven't seen the picture once.

I think. I'm going to bring a special one to LIFE plus... buy something special. I think.
Oooh! Well let us know how it goes! (人 •͈ᴗ•͈)

Ahhhh happy birthday! 🎂 🎉

I decided I'm going to do so on my livestream tonight! ᕦ⊙෴⊙ᕤ And the pause feature is great but I remember reading over a decade ago that the pause feature excessively drains battery. ヽ((◎д◎))ゝ

Omg right? I was maybe 4 years old when they first dropped! And ahhh, so cool! You'll have to share pictures!

I took the screws out entirely. They come off like the Nano tamagotchi, albeit a touch easier. If you aren't worried about losing the back cover this could work; I keep my tamas in my handbag and they get bumped around a fair bit, cover hasn't once popped off unintentionally.

I ran all over Tokyo to document the excitement of launch day! Really great energy all around. I took so many photos, but here is a small selection of some highlights.

Ad campaign in Omotesando Station

Namco arcade with big Tamagotchi plush cushions!

The Pop-Up Shop!

And of course, paying respects to Mametchi at Bandai HQ. (As you can see, I had a grand day out with my Pix.)

I also spent more than I should have on the crane game attempts, capsule toys, and limited edition merch at the event shop...so fun though. Great days.

Tamagotchi is more fun when we can enjoy it together! I'm glad you like the photos :angry:

I've heard Japan can be quite strict about that sort of thing 😳
Yes, this is true! I ask for permission to shoot whenever possible and generally try not to cause trouble.

My replacement Anniversary Smart arrived this morning, so really, the party just keeps going over here :tarakotchi:
