I can’t tell you how manyI’ve bought in the last couple of years. They seem to be a big hit with my boys. I continue to find them hidden somewhere, and I am always buying the batteries to keep them going. So when I was given a chance to review the newest edition, the I knew it was right up our alley.
We received our TamaTown Tama-Go some time ago and I’ve been letting my son test it out. We received a TamaTown Tama-Go, a Gotchi Figure, and a Tama Town Tama-Go carrying case. They must have known my son when they sent us this package because a case means you need to collect things. He is a collector of all things. In fact I don’t think any of the other kids got to try this one out, as soon as Buddy got his hands on it, it pretty much became his.
So I asked Buddy what he thought of it. He was so funny because I could see the wheels turning and he seem to spit out a walking advertisement. He said it was the best product they have made. He said he liked the larger egg shape because it is harder to loose. As the world tries to minimize everything he wants things larger so he doesn’t lose them. He has already asked for a bigger mp3 player because he says he misplaces it too much. Anyway he said he also liked that the characters evolved faster and the fact that you can switch on the characters with one “egg” instead of purchasing a new one each time. It also has a lot more fun games he said. Here is what Tamagotchi has to say about them:
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.
Without being a Tamagotchi expert I really like the fact that you can change out the design. If noticed around here I like to change up designs to go with moods or holidays. Also like many things now a days they have their own virtual world. I really like toys that include this option because it gives the toy a whole other use. My daughter loves webkins and other toys she can go online and take care of.
You can take care of your TamaTown Tama-Go at, I haven’t been able to hack into the virtual world because I can’t seem to get my son to cooperate with me and let me register his Tama-Go. I really think that I may purchase one of these for daughter for Christmas. I think she would REALLY enjoy the virtual world part along with taking her Tama-Go with her to the ball field and in the car.
TamaTown Tama-Go can be purchased at major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys R Us. The Tama-Go retails for about $20-$22 get yours before the Holiday Rush begins.
