There are a number of Tamagotchi gadgets that are out in the market today. But a lot of people still love and treasure the original Tamagotchi version 1. Why so? It is the simplest Tamagotchi to enjoy. Even kids love playing with the original version of the game.
The concept of Tamagotchi is very basic. The toy stimulates and mirrors the life cycle of a pet. As Bandai would characterize a Tamagotchi, it is a tiny pet, not from this world, but from cyber space that needs attention and someone to take care of them to survive and grow. If the owner does not take care of his or her Tamagotchi, then the virtual pet would get ugly or mean and would eventually die. But once an owner showered his or her virtual pet with attention, love and care, then it would be healthy and more adorable every single day.
The Tamagotchi version 1 has 10 basic options that you can use to help them grow, namely health (icon: weighting scale), games (icon: baseball), toilet (icon: toilet bowl), food (icon: chef), discipline (talking icon), medicine (icon: medicine bag), lights (icon: lamp), friends (icon: book), attention (face icons) and infrared communication (icon: heart). You can find three buttons at the bottom of the toy that you can use to select, execute or cancel a command.
On top of the things that you can with your virtual pet, Tamagotchi also has a number of added features that you can enjoy. The Tamagotchi version 1 allows two or more Tamagotchi to int eract with each other like play games or exchange gifts. Your Tamagotchi can play with the gifts it receives or wear the things your Tamagotchi friends give it. You can also store and save up to 50 of your friendâ€™s name in your the friends list.
Tamagotchi version 1 has five basic growth processes. The first time you would use your Tamagotchi virtual pet, it comes in the form of an egg. Once you get to use your toy, it would develop into a baby, a child, a teenager and lastly, an adult Tamagotchi.
If your virtual pet needs something, the toy would send off a beep to catch your attention. You would then notice that the â€œAttentionâ€ button is highlighted. You need to check whether your Tamagotchi needs food, some sleep or it just needs some playing around.
Your Tamagotchi toy might as well be your companion everywhere you go. It is a virtual pet that you can enjoy playing with. You can feed it or play games with it if you are bored. But it also needs constant care, especially if it grows sick. If you wanted to take care of a real pet in the future, you can actually practice your skills at taking care of animals with this toy gadget.
Tamagotchi is not just a mere toy. It is a good companion that you bring along anywhere. Not only that, it can also teach you a lot of things like responsibility and pet care. So grab your own Tamagotchi today!
