I remember when Tamagotchi was such a huge craze here in Hawaii (and just about worldwide), and I recently got a chance to try out the new TamaTown Tama-Go by Tamagotchi, which brings a whole new level of fun in caring for the virtual pet!
Tamagotchi is the one and only virtual pet! TamaTown is the latest sensation, which includes the original nurturing play pattern and character customization.
1. The TamaTown egg is larger for easier play.
2. TamaTown is the base for the Tama characters (sold separately). Attach any Tama character and activate character-specific new games.
3. Includes an interchangeable design sheet and 1 “lite” character unit.
4. TamaTown has a new 4-gray scale display screen for greater detail!
5. When you collect multiple characters, TamaTown rewards you with special announcement.
We were fortunate to receive the Blue with Memetchi Tama-Go (ARV $19.99). Little Music Man was very intrigued when he saw the Tama-Go, but I think he's still a little too young to properly take care of the "pet," so of course, I stepped in!
I ended up with a Boy, named him, and I immediately fed him and started to take care of him.
He seems to sleep and eat a lot--I feed him everything from pork and beans to beef bowls, and he sure grows quickly!
I really don't remember much from the original Tamagotchi, but with my new "baby" I not only have to feed him, but I have to discipline him if he makes a mess, nurture him, take him out to play, and so much more!I like the different games that I can play to help you earn points to get more food and other items.
It was quite addicting taking care of the virtual pet, as I always checked his stats to ensure he was happy and well-fed, and if he wasn't, I had to figure out how to make him more content and satisfied.
We were also fortunate to receive a Mametchi #101 Gotchi Character (ARV $6.99).
1. Each character comes with 2 character exclusive games that can be played with TamaTown Tama-go (sold separately).
2. Visit shops and get character specific gifts!
3. Comes with a face plate to change the look of your Tamagotchi. Includes exclusive web codes to access special gifts on www.tamatown.com.
TamaTown is a lot of fun and can be quite addicting, and I think kids will enjoy taking care of their virtual pets, playing games, and even playing online at TamaTown!
TamaTown teaches responsibility and nurturing in a creative way that I'm sure kids (or kids at heart like myself) will find a lot of fun!
Shop: You can purchase TamaTown by Tamagotchi products at various retailers online and nationwide, or click here to find a retailer near you.
Win: One lucky winner will receive a White with Kuchipachi Tama-Go and a Ringotchi #156 Gotchi Character Figure!
