My Collection: Update!!!
So my collection has actually grown by leaps and bounds since I posted the first group photos over a year or two ago. I took some updated photos earlier this year and haven't gotten many Tamagotchis since then so I would say these photos are way more up to date. Here you go:

English language Tamas:

~As you can see, quite a few have been added since my last collection update. In order of appearance from top left to right:

* Special edition 1997 Hong Kong New Year red Tamagotchi P1. Got this on eBay for about $50ish. Quite worth the money :) The shell is so unique and beautiful.

* My second Tamagotchi that I ever owned, yellow P2. My grandpa bought this for me for my birthday, may he Rest In Peace.

* 5 American Tamagotchi Angels (one yellow one is broken, but that was my first ever Tamagotchi that I ever owned). The broken one was bought for me by my mom when I was in middle school. The rest I bought on eBay over the years for varying prices.

* Two Version 1 Digimon, both bought for me by my mother at KD Toys before that company closed. They were only $4 each!

~In the second row from left to right:

* translucent pink P1 from Europe. I got this for the great price of $20 from a collector who was getting rid of a large portion of their collection at very great prices.

* Silver P2 from Europe, also from the same seller for $20 on eBay.

* 3 European Angelgotchis from the same seller for $20 each. I missed out on the yellow one sadly. Those got bought fast! I hope I can get the yellow someday.

* Two angels without packages, one was my sisters and she gave it to me and the other I bought on eBay for $10. I dropped the pink one in water, so I took the screen out of the eBay one and put it in the Pink and now it is fully functional with a prettier shell than the white :)

~In the third row from left to right:

* Two V1s without packages. The orange one doesn't connect because that feature was broken when I got it, but it can still have a baby from the Matchmaker so it is essentially almost fully functional. I bought the blue one after finding that the orange was broken. They were both only about $5 each on eBay at the time :)

* One American Mini-Tamagotchi. I only played with it once. It was about $15 on eBay. Maybe I'll start it up again someday.

* Two V2s, one blue Candy design and the other Milky White with pink hearts :D The Milky White is my absolute favorite Tamagotchi of all time. The Blue candy is the first Connection Tamagotchi that I ever owned, which my mom bought me as a present for my choir concert in 2005.

* One Starry Constellation V3. I bought it at Target for about $15.

* One Glow-In-The-Dark V4, bought from Toys R Us.

~In the fourth and final row from left to right:

* One globe design V4.5 with microphone dock, CD, figurines and mousepad! I got it for only $15 at either Target or Kmart I think.

* One white cityscape V5 from either Target or Kmart. My friend Thomas got the pink one :D

* One blue cityscape V6 Music Star from Toys R Us.

* One white Tamago with Kuchipatchi figurine from Toys R Us for $25. Pretty expensive.

That's it for my English Tamas. Now here are my Japanese Tamagotchis!

~In the top row from left to right:

* Three Keitai Tamagotchi, transluscent soda pop, light blue diamond, and pink Strawberry designs :) I got all of them on eBay but the pink one did not come with a package. It is in mind condition though and came with instructions. I would say it is my second favorite design of all time next to the Milky White V2.

* One Toys R Us special edition lime green Akai with Home Decka Tamagotchi. They came together in an auction that I won on eBay.

* Four unpckaged Tamagotchis: one green-yellow swirl Entama, one Hanerutchi 2, and two Uratamas. I got all of these used on eBay for very reasonable prices.

* Above that is my yellow Odenkun which I got on eBay for about $20. Definitely a cute design.

* My first Uratama, the pink party design :D got it on eBay when it first came out.

* A Famatama from the same seller as the two out of package Uras and the out of package Entama.

* One sparkly snowflake Nano Tamagotchi (the second edition of the Chibi). I don't have the Chibi (which is the Japanese version of the Mini). Got this on eBay.

* One pink Famatama with CD/DVD game. I'm not sure how the CD/DVD works since its all in Japanese. Also, from eBay.

* One turquoise TMGC+Color. Got it on eBay when it first came out.

* One blue Tamagotchi ID L-e. It is in English even though this is a picture of my Japanese Tamagotchis, but I figured it looked better if I included it in this photo instead. Got this from TheRoyalBanana on :D

* One special edition 15th anniversary Pink ID L. Probably one of my favorite Tamagotchis of all time. I love the games.

~In the second row from left to right:

* One orange P1, from Jason's Store on eBay. Only $17.

* One milky white P2, from another seller on eBay.

* One translucent green P2 (other version). One version has the Puchitchi and the other has Nyanchi. Also from eBay.

* Four Angelgotchis, all the colors (Gold, Pink, White, Blue). Yes, the gold one is a different shade from the white one. It is very rare. I was lucky to get it. All of these came from eBay. I used to have another white one, but I gave it to my little sister.

~In the third row from left to right:

* Two Morino tamagotchis, my two favorite designs of the white and the yellow with vines, both bought on eBay.

* Three pairs of Osu-Mesu connection tamagotchis. The transluscent orange and green ones I got on eBay in two separate auctions that I won. The white orange and green ones I got from a seller on, and the blue and pink ones I bought on eBay as a set years ago.

~In the last row from left to right:

* One Genjintchi (Cave Man), bought on eBay.

* One transluscent waves Umino that my dad bought for me on eBay many years ago.

* One black Devilgotchi that I snagged for the awesome price of $99 on eBay from Jason's Store back in the day when rare Tamas were still reasonably priced.

* One white Sanaclautchi that I think I also snagged from Jason's store for only $100 back in the day.

That's it for the namebrand Tamagotchis. I will do another post of my Miscellaneous off-brand pets later today. Thanks for checking in!

This was the first color screen edition of the Tamagotchi. It functions much like a regular Tamagotchi Plus connection, but with many enhanced features. Aside from a full screen, the Tamagotchi lives in a house that can be decorated. You can play games with the Tamagotchi at the arcade in order to gain points to go shopping. Various types of items can be bought for the Tamagotchi such as toys, tools, and decorations. I have not played with this Tamagotchi extensively, but apparently there are certain items that you can gather to unlock special features. Like the Tamagotchi Plus, you can connect it to other TMGC+Colors, but it is not backwards compatible with other older Tamagotchi Connections. It can also be connected with an ID, anID L and a Tamagotchi P's.

Here is a picture of the one I own:

Right now these are pretty expensive. They are discontinued, but you can find them on eBay ranging anywhere from $50-200. I got mine for about $45 a few months after it first came out.

Tamagotchi Plus Cho Jinsei (Entama)
The Entama came out after the Keitai. It is basically the equivalent of the English V4 because it can get a career. I have yet to play it all the way through since I just got it, but apparently it has a special feature where it cooks as well, which seems really cute. Just like on the other Japanese connections, the games are not gradually unlocked, but are already playable once the Tamagotchi is born. The Entama is very similar to the Uratama, except that it has black pixels instead of blue pixels. It was also the first to have the new version of Mametchi (giant eyes and big head). So far the buttons on this Tamagotchis are very easy to push, and the response time is very good. Bandai seems to have produced a cheaper shell, though, because on the side where the antenna pops up, the seems is sort of splitting a little bit, and the paint isn't very nice on the back. Like the Uratama it has a lanyard of beads that say "TMGC". This was the first Tamagotchi to have an antenna that stuck out at a sort of diagonal angle with a ball on top. In my opinion these sorts of antennas are the uggliest and most irritating. I'm not sure why Bandai decided to design the shell this way, but oh well. Other than this one stupid thing I would say the Entama and Uratama are both very good virtual pets and I would highly recommend getting them. If you want a similar pet in English then I would recommend getting the V4.5 (not the V4 since in my opinion it isn't that great).

Here is a picture of the one I own. Since I bought it used on eBay it did not come with a package, but it is in very good condition. The character on the screen is Sebiretchi:

I bought this on eBay with a set of Uratamas and the price came out to $33 and change. So I got mine for about $11, but if you bought it alone or new in package it might be a little more expensive. Right now they seem to be going for anywhere from $20-50ish+shipping. I would recommend getting an Entama and Uratama so you have two versions that have a lot of connection capabilities. and characters in common.

Virtual Pet Collection, Part II
This update was a long time coming (about 9 months!). Here is the second half of my collection. This half is all official Bandai Tamagotchis. Part 1 can be found here.

This first picture is of all my vintage Tamagotchis from the 90's.

-In the top row from left to right:
* The yellow Tamagotchi is a vintage English Generation 2. I think it was the second Tamagotchi I ever got, and it was given to me by me Grandpa as a Christmas gift.

* I have all four colors of the American Angel Tamagotchi, all of which were bought on eBay at varying prices at different times. I managed to get the pink angel for only $14 ;) I'm a good bargain hunter.

*The two pets on the right are first generation American Digimons, which were given to me by my parents for my birthday a long time ago when virtual pets were beginning to go out of style. As a result, each digimon only costed $4. I could probably sell each one for over $100 if I wanted to.

* In front of the angel boxes is another angel out of box, which I bought for about $10. It was in great working condition with only a little bit of paint scuffed off.

* Next to the out of box angel is a white Santagotchi, which I got on eBay for pretty cheap because it was used. It is in near mint condition (I had to replace the screws because the old ones would not come out, so we cut them out and put new screws in without damaging anything).

-In the middle row from left to right:

* A vintage Japanese Generation1. I bought this one on eBay.

* A pink and a pearly white angel, both bought on eBay. Not included in the picture is the silvery blue which I just bought a few months ago on eBay as well.

* Two Forestgotchis, both bought on eBay. The yellow one is my favorite design but the white one is pretty too. The white one had the same problem of screws that would not come out, so we had to cut them out and replace them with different screws. Still a nice addition to the collection considering I got it for pretty cheap.

-In the bottom row from left to right:

* Genjinch (Caveman) that I got on eBay. There is only one design of this as far as I know. Its a bit of an annoying pet so I've never fully raised it, but its cute.

* Umino (ocean) which my dad bought for me on eBay a long time ago when the pets were going out of style. I do not play with it often since it is the hardest Tamagotchi to care for, sadly.

* A Devilgotchi which I bought on eBay used so it was cheaper than usual. It is in perfect working condition. Part of the chain was ripped, so I cut that part off and put the rest back together so it looks good as new, just shorter chain. If I had a choice I would get the pink edition too, but I settled for this one since it was like half price for what they are going for now.

* Blue and pink Osuchi and Mesuchi mating pair which I bought together on eBay. Both were NIB. I've opened most of my pets, but I'm always really careful to make sure the box stays in great condition so they can be put back inside and still look new and nice :)

So the only pet missing from this picture is the blue Japanese Angelgotchi, and thats because I took these pictures in 2011, but I got the blue angel in early 2012.

Next picture is of all the recent Tamagotchis that have come out in the 2000's. This picture includes both English and Japanese Language Tamagotchis. Most are Japanese, since Japan has always had way more releases than for English speaking countries.

-In the very back row from left to right:

* One special Japanese Toys R Us edition Akai Keitai and Home Dekatama box set. I was the highest bidder on this one and it was really expensive. I think it went way down in price since about 6 years ago when I bought it, but it has probably since gone back up in price since there aren't as many of them. The box is a little warn out and so is the Akai Keitai, but its still in good condition with all the paint on it. I do not recommend bidding on Tamagotchis. Just do "Buy It Now".

* One pink Japanese Famatama (equivalent of the American v5) with DVD set. There aren't many of these on eBay anymore. It was expensive at first when I bought it, then it went down drastically, and now because of the lack of them they went back up again I think.

* One greenish teal Color Tamagotchi that I bought on eBay. These were the first Color Tamagotchis, and this one is in Japanese. The picture does not include the iD L and iD L 15th anniversary editions I bought recently, but game play is essentially the same in all three, just with different characters and games, and slightly different shell design. I would say these are some of my favorite Tamagotchis. All three are in Japanese.

* One American V4.5 and DVD/CD set, which I bought on sale at Walmart for $14. Definitely a great find because it came with a Tamagotchi mouse pad and a dock for the Tamagotchi with some figurines. I'm not entirely sure how the functionality of the dock works. I'm not that motivated to figure these types of things out.

* Next to the v4.5 in the very right corner is a very large white Tama-Go with a Kuchipatchi theme in the shell design. I bought it at Toys R Us for about $20ish. These were an attempt to placate the English speaking market for not getting a color Tamagotchi. Kind of a lousy Tamagotchi in my opinion. Each one comes with a special figurine to unlock games and you can buy more figurines to unlock other stuff.

- In the second row from the top going left to right:

* One mint in box blue sparkly snow flake Nano Tamagotchi. These are the second edition of the Mini/Chibi Tamagotchis Bandai released in the early 2000's. It was only released in Japan. Essentially it is the smallest type of Tamagotchi and can be used as a phone charm. It has very limited functionality. I got mine on eBay for collection purposes. I doubt I'll ever play with it. It just looked really pretty so I couldn't resist.

* One light blue Japanese diamond design Keitai. This is essentially the "V2" for Japan. They have antennas to symbolize that they connect to cell phones. They can only connect to a Japanese cell phone. It is essentially the same as the Akai Keitai, but the Akai has red pixels and the regular Keitais have black pixels. I got this one on eBay.

* One slightly translucent Japanese Keitai (same as the light blue) with bubbly soda shell design. I got it on eBay and it is one of my favorite Tamagotchis :3

* One pink party design Japanese Ura Tamagotchi that I bought on eBay. It has blue pixels and a slightly different antenna with some slightly different features than the Keitai. It is like the "v4.5" for America, but with Japanese language, blue pixels and some slightly different website and code functionality. The games are different too, but a lot of the characters are similar. Before this one came out, the Cho Jinsei came out which is like the "v4" for American, but I do not have the Cho Jinsei because it didn't seem that appealing to me (just like the American v4 wasn't that appealing to me either). The Ura is definitely one of my favorites.

* One yellow themed Oden-Kun. Oden-Kun is a really weird Japanese cartoon, so this pet is in Japanese and its based on the characters in the cartoon. Apparently the characters are all each ingredients in a soup. So funny. It essentially functions just like an American v2 or a Keitai in my opinion but with different games and characters, and no antenna, which is better in my opinion. I bought it on eBay. I recommend getting this pet, but they might be more rare now.

- Third row from the top going left to right:

* One orange American Mini Tamagotchi. I got it on eBay. I have only turned it on briefly and it has very limited functionality, but its pretty cute.

* One blue candy themed American V2. My mother gave it to me after a choir concert a few years ago, which sparked my new interest in collecting virtual pets again. It is by far probably one of my very favorite pets. The introduction of the ability to earn points to buy items was a hugely popular feature that Bandai included. So awesome. I was re-addicted after I started playing with it.

* After getting a v2, I picked up an American v3 at Target when they first came out. Just as awesome as the v2, but they changed one of my favorite characters to look uglier :/ Its still a great pet to own though. I highly recommend it. It has a stupid antenna, but whatever.

* One glow-in-the-dark American V4 tamagotchi that I bought at Toys R Us when they were first released. Introduced the concept of a mail box and a career and getting career points, but I didn't like the antenna and a lot of the characters were uninteresting. Some of the games were meh. Still a good addition and I like the shell design since it glows.

* One American white V5 (family tamagotchi) that I think I may have bought at either K-Mart or Target when they were first released. These pets differed in that they actually offered Japanese shell designs, instead of just completely different American shell designs. Good pet, but kind of complicated to use. Has a contrast feature which is cool and the pixels extend across the screen which is good.

* One blue city American v6. I consider this to be the failure of Tamagotchis. Not only were most of the shell designs terrible, but the buttons didn't work that great (i hear this from multiple people) and the game play was waaaaaay too complicated and needy. Added a separate feature for "stress", which is just weird. The buttons made it hard to play the games without failing right away. Goal is to become a "rock star". I think I may have bought it at Toys R Us when it was first released.

-Very bottom row from left to right:

* Two American V1's I bought one eBay. The orange one is damaged in teh infrared feature but everything else still functions perfectly fine. The Blue one works fine as far as I know because it connects to other pets. I got them on eBay at different times

* One red candy American V2. This is actually my brother's pet, but he wanted to include it in the picture. It was given to him by one of my best friends who was giving away some of his collection.

So that's it for my collection. I'll update this when/if I get more pets.

iD L
The iD L 4th is the newest edition to date of the colored screen Tamagotchis released in Japan. It has tons more characters, most of which are super duper cute and it has lots of features. Overall I would say that this Tamagotchi really isn't much different from the original Color Tamagotchi. I do like the shell design of the iD L's much better because they are prettier and less plain looking. The original Tamagotchi Color has a piece of plastic that goes over the screen and makes the shell design look more smooth. The iD L's are lacking the piece of plastic so the screen is more embedded looking into the shell. The screen is framed by a piece of plastic that is diamondy looking, the diamondy looking frame is framed by a silver painted oval. The back covers of the iD L slide off when you press a little button in back instead of being unscrewed like older Tamagotchis. The iD L is also rounder all over so it is more egg shaped, whereas the original Tamagotchi Color is flat on the bottom which is kind of weird looking, but is more stable when sitting on a flat surface. Bandai also released a 15th Anniversary edition of the iD L and it has different characters and games but is essentially the same exact game play as the regular iD L. They also released a version that has a character called Princess Spacey, but all the other characters are the same as the regular iD L. It might have different games but I don't know yet. I won't bother getting the Princess Spacey edition since it is more expensive and pointless to get anyway.

Here are some pictures of the ones I have:

This is an English ID L. You can tell by the fact that the packaging is mostly white. When you turn it on all of the menus are in English. This was only released in China.

Here is the regular iD L. I actually sold this one on eBay earlier this year in order to get the funds to buy the English version.

Here is the 15th Anniversary Edition

Growth Charts:

The iD L growth chart can be found here:

The 15th Anniversary edition growth chart can be found at

Right now the regular iD L's are still going for around $70. The 15th Anniversary editions are rarer so they are going from anywhere between $80 (if you're lucky) and $120. Princess Spacey edition is currently in the $90 range but I suspect the price will begin to go up after a few months like the 15th Anniversary edition did.

The Tama-Go is the newest American Tamagotchi to date. It is meant to emulate the newer Japanese Color Tamagotchis. The only problem is that it seriously fails by comparison. Firstly, it is a HUGE Tamagotchi, which I found disappointing. There's no way I could carry this thing around in my purse to play with it regularly. Even the Japanese color Tamagotchis, which are relatively big, are not nearly as huge as the Tama-Go. What's even worse is that it doesn't even have a color screen! You would figure that all that bulk would mean something, but apparently not. I'm not sure what the heck Bandai's reasoning is for the lack of updated features and the bulkiness, but I was disappointed. If they weren't going to give us all the perks, then why bother making something so huge? I did not play with this Tamagotchi, but I got it because the reviews on were fairly positive. I feel like it was a waste of $23 (I bought mine at Toys R Us). As for the actual game play, I don't remember much about it because I only played with it for a few minutes after opening up the package when it was first released, but I was very underwhelmed, to say the least. There was nothing interesting about this Tamagotchi. yes, the screen resolution was improved over say the v4 or v5, but it seemed pointless to have improved resolution when they hadn't updated the screen to color. If they aren't going to update the screen to color then I'd rather stick with the vintage style pixelations. Maybe other people don't care about this, but I was disappointed. All of that said, it is still a major improvement from other Tamagotchis. it has some enhanced features over other versions of Tamagotchi that I'm sure other people will find impressive, especially if they haven't played with a Japanese Color tamagotchi, but if you have tons of experience Tamagotchis you might be saddened by this release :( If they had designed it to be as compact as a v5 then I would have been far more impressed, despite the lack of features that the Japanese version contains. I have to say, though, the characters are fairly cute, which works in its favor, all else aside. Another thing that I found utterly ridiculous was the concept of attaching a figurine on top just to unlock different features. I do not approve of this concept because its basically a ploy to get consumers to purchase more accessories in order to access the full abilities of the pet, instead of just including them from the get-go (very punny). While connection Tamagotchis have always sort of been this way (you have to purchase another Tamagotchi or find someone else to connect with in order to mate them together), I think this simply goes too far and is clearly just plain manipulative on Bandai's part.

Here are some pictures of the one I own (includes size comparisons):

V6 Connection (Music Star)
Introducing the V6 connection Tamagotchi, also known as Tamagotchi Music Star! My friend and I decided to nickname this one "The Stressed Tama". Why? Well because apparently Bandai decided to add a new meter which indicates when the character is stressed out. So now not only do you have to worry about hunger and happiness, you also need to worry about keeping the stress down. Seems a little superfluous to me since there's already a happiness meter which indicates whether or not the tama is happy or unhappy *shrug*. In addition to the new meter, not only does the Tama get stressed, but we found ourselves getting stressed just playing with it. "Why?" you may be asking again. Well because there are just too many menus and options on this tama. Not only does your cahracter grow up and mate, it also forms a band, practices it's intrument, goes to music school, and actually has to get tested and graded O_O Whoever came up with the idea to send a Tamagotchi to school was crazy in my opinion. Kids have to endure school everyday as is, so what makes Bandai think that kids want to send their pets to school in the game too? We play with Tamagotchis because we want a vacation from school XD That's my opinion anyway lol

Not only did we find some of the stuff extremely hard to navigate because there were too many menus, the buttons were very unresponsive. We had heard this complaint from other people about the V6, but we bought the V6 anyway just to give it a fair shot. Unfortunately, the critics were right :( It usually takes me at least 2 tries to get a button to do anything on this Tamagotchi. That said, it's the same thing with the v4.5 that I have, so I've been able to put up with it in the past. Oh well.

The goal of this Tamagotchi is obviously to become a music star by practicing your instruments and practicing with the band members you meet in the music school. Admittedly, after fiddling around with the Tamagotchi I got used to some of the new features and I do kind of like some of it. Some menus are reorganised nicely (despite there being too many), Bandai brought back the original shop (just looks a little differently and your tamagotchi actually walks out the door to go shopping), and they also brought back the discipline and praise features, which I am happy about. The BIGGEST improvement in this version was the LACK OF ANTENNA. I was so relieved to see they finally got rid of the antenna on this version because aside from the v3 and Keitais, antennas really bug me and I think they look ugly. I can't say too many positive things about the shell designs sadly. I didn't really see any designs I liked, so I opted for the least ugly one (in my opinion anyway) *sigh*

Other notable things I liked: The screen of pixels extends all the way to both sides just like on the v5 :D I really like how the Tama has way more room to move around. You can adjust contrast like on the v5. Also, your tama doesnt get lonely on the screen because there are actually toys and instruments present at all times for him/her to play with. I thought that was a good idea and it was something I had been thinking about for a long time and wanted Bandai to add. I'm glad they read my thoughts on that feature. You can switch toys and instruments when you get new ones if you want. Super cute! There's also an actual trashcan feature. You could throw away stuff in the older versions too, but it was more difficult to do because the option was never expressly visible like on the v6. It actually gives you the option in the menu in this one.

Other stuff I didn't like: There are 3 games and they are kind of difficult :/ I like easy games that don't take too much practice or aren't too hard to figure out, but still super fun and challenging. Since response time on the buttons is awful, that made the games even more difficult to play. We're also thinking of calling the v6 "The Difficult, Stressed Tama" XD

Silly, silly Bandai *shakes head*

I give this version 3 and a half out of 5 Hitodetchis.

Here are some pictures of the one I currently own:


Got this one for $14.99+tax at Toys R Us. You can still buy them for about $17 on eBay right now, brand new in package :D Since its a relatively cheap Tamagotchi, despite all its drawbacks, I would suggest collecting it now before it gets expensive.

V5 Connection (Famitama, i.e. Familitchi)
This is by far one of the best Connection tamas ever! You get to raise 3 characters on one screen as a family! Hence the chimney because it's like they live in a little house under one roof ^_^ They have 4 different games. Two of which you can play on a regular basis. In order to unlock the other two games you must have a father and mother figure present. Your tamagotchis grow up together, and eventually form their own families. You get different families depending on how your characters bond with eachother. It's a little confusing at first, but there are plenty of forums online where you can find information on how to get certain families.

What's new? Instead of a shop where you buy items, there is a shopping tv station on your Tamagotchi. There are three channels: 1) shopping, 2) dating show and 3) travel channel. When you go to the dating show at too young of an age, the Match Maker will yell at you and shut the tv off lol If you choose the travel channel, your tamagotchis go on a family vacation which is the same as pausing your regular Tamagotchi. You won't need to care for them when this function is activated because they are "away on holiday" so to speak :P Also instead of a discipline feature, there is a "family bonding" feature. When your tamagotchis beep for seemingly no reason it means they want to interact with each other. Depending on how you care for the family they will aspire to different talents such as intelligence or creativity doing art. It's really awesome. There's so much to explain about this version of the connection that it's not even funny. The downfall is that this newest version can only connect to other v5s. But on the plus side you can still connect to the brand new v5 website at just like with the v3 and v4. You can also input special passwords in your v5 to get free items. The best thing is that you can keep these items forever. Even food! Once again the antenna is a little annoying in my opinion, but all the new stuff more than makes up for it! :D

Here is a picture of the one I currently own:


Going for really cheap at $20-30 brand new. Auctions can be really cheap too. Just don't pay more than $17 if you do an auction cause then you may as well have just done Buy It Now.

V4.5 Connection
Connection V4.5 came out shortly after the V4. It is much like the v4 except with a lot of different characters and all different games and designs. It also has a little star at the top instead of ball on the antenna. So far I like this one more than the v4 because the games are cuter and more fun in my opinion. This is also the one that comes with the PC pack with games you can play on your computer and voice activation. I haven't tried them out yet but I will later probably. When it comes to tamagotchi stuff on the computer I'm generally not interested, but I figure it's best to play with it at least once :)

Here are some pictures of the one I currently own:


These are still going for fairly cheap, $15-30. If you want the PC pack, then it's probably from $30-50ish. I got my PC pack for $12 at Walmart because it was on sale :D

V4 Connection (English)
Another version! Just like the v3, this one uses a website, but there a couple of different features on the tamagotchi itself. The discipline feature has been replaced with a mail box which delivers messages about how your tamagotchi's day is supposed to go. You also get a career meter function. Depending on how you care for your Character, your character aspires to a certain career. Your tamagotchi will leave the screen sometimes to go to work! Also, the lights on this tamagotchi turn off and on automatically so the light option is missing in this version and has been replaced with a treasure chest where the items are stored. There are tons more games on this one as well. I'm not particularly fond of this version though because the antenna is even more annoying than ever, I'm not impressed with any of the newer characters and I don't particularly care for the games. I'd give it a 3 and a half out of 5 as far as Connections go. Other than that its an ok Tamagotchi and other people might love it.

Here is a picture of the one I currently own. It glows in the dark!:


These can be found on eBay and run at $10-25. Again careful about the fake ones because they are super cheat so they will try to tempt you.
