I remember getting my first colored tamagotchi like it was yesterday, around 2013 it was a Tamagotchi ID – along with it I also got a tamagotchi chibi (uniqlo) and a Uratama. Unfortunately, the chibi uniqlo one is currently dismantled (after I finally drilled out the striped screws lol) but needless to say, after those three, I’ve gotten more than I’d ever thought I’d have and have started
a colony I mean a collection. So, here goes my collection after a year <3
Last year around this time (February 22 or 23?) I finally started taking it to the next level after the seller of the Tamagotchi ID (green) I bought, Trixie Kent, added me to our local group of tamagotchi collectors — Tamagotchi Philippines. There, I met other people who also collected them and learned so much from them as well. Of course, I had become too engrossed that I also wanted to set it a goal to finish gameplay of each tamagotchi I owned (but, that’s impossible!!!) Fortunately, I managed to finish getting all adults of a Tamagotchi ID & Tamagotchi 4u+
Of course, when you’ve played for a year you’re also bound to have a favorite and for me it’s the 4u+ and the crowd favorite Tamagotchi P’s (see, I even have four! Mehehe) And if you get tired, the next choice for me is the Tamagotchi iDL. Most prized ones for me though are the Gudetama Tamagotchi Nano and Rilakkuma Virtual Pet that I won from an auction (I never win but when I do, I’m glad it’s worth it >u<) I’ve even made an Instagram account solely for my tamagotchi “logs” and tamagotchi collection as well as “tama mails”
They say that tamagotchi(s) are only loved in the 90s and only for the 90s kid – I say not all, I’ve met people younger than me who were really into it and if you really try to appreciate the little wonders of a tamagotchi you’ll be surprised of how well it was made, almost like, a very small console. This even made me want to try playing on actual consoles since it has games for the Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS.
So, since it’s been a year, I wonder now what’s in for me? Will I get more? Or will I move on to another collection or go back to nendoroids (although I still do collect those)…I say, I’d stay 🙂
With that said, here’s to more tamagotchi (hopefully and not?) and to more tamagotchi-versaries if that actually becomes a word! Hehe 😛 And here’s to you thinking that the tamagotchi madness is over, it is never over!
And if I could run all at the same time I would, but nah, that’s crazy – trust me.
PS. As you might have noticed, my cat likes taking part as she claims to be a tamagotchi too (>w<) Thanks for reading this lengthy non-sense post, and credits to Project TamaShell for most of the links.
