Goooood Morning!! Raise your hand if you had a Tamagotchi as a child.
Well, if you’ve been following me on social media, you’ll know that I’ve become a HUGE Tamagotchi fan in the last few months; I love the nostalgia of the older toys, as well as the added features on the newer versions.
So, with some inspiration from the Tamagotchi Collectors community, I thought that I’d share my current collection.
1 – P’s (Japanese): The P’s is my newest coloured addition, and it is one of my top favourites. I love that you can add extra content to the game via the variety of pierces; I much prefer that method than having to download an app.
2 – Ketai (Japanese): The Ketai is a nice balance between modern and vintage; introducing the concept of gotchi points while keeping the pixel screen. I love the shape and the antenna on this Tamagotchi; I’d place it as one of my favourites.
3 – Friends (English): The Friends model was one of the most recent North American releases. I don’t particularly care for this Tamagotchi as the screen is incredibly hard to see.
4 – 4U (Japanese): The 4U was my first introduction to the world of colour Tamagotchis. Despite being entirely Japanese, I love this version; the characters aren’t too demanding, and you can customize it with purchasable faceplates.
5 – Sanrio M!X (Japanese): The Sanrio M!x is a collaboration between Bandai and Sanrio; it is my absolute favourite out of my entire collection. I love that you can select your Tamagotchi’s mate and that the offspring include parent genetics; there are multitudes of character possibilities.
6 – Dream Town (English): Dream Town is an updated and much better re-release of the Tamagotchi Friends. While this still isn’t my favourite virtual pet, I vastly prefer this version to the original friends; Bandai has made the screen more visible while adding new locations and functionalities.
7 – P1 (English): The P1 is the very first Tamagotchi released in North America; the one that we all had as children. The biggest reason that I got this baby was for the nostalgia.
8 – 2oth Anniversary M!X (Japanese): Since this model is similar to the Sanrio M!X, I don’t need to discuss this one at length. However, I will note that there are a few locations and characters that are different from the Sanrio Tamagotchi.
9 – Angel Gotch (Japanese): The Angel Gotch, like the P1, is one of the original 90’s Tamagotchis. However, the goal of this game is to raise an angel instead of an alien. As such, most of the icons and options on this Tama are distinctly angel-themed.
10 – Chibi (Japanese): Finally, we have the Chibi which is my most recent addition to my collection; it’s a smaller and more basic version of the original model. I say that this one is more basic because this Tamagotchi doesn’t include any games; the only way to your pet happy is through feeding and snacks.
Anyways, I hope that you enjoyed reading this post. I love collecting Tamagotchis; so, sharing off my collection has been fun for me.
