Although there is no direct definition for Tamagotchi, it loosely translates in Japanese as "cute loveable egg."


Some say Tamagotchi was created by Bandai employee, Aki Maita, who was searching for the perfect companion that worked with her busy lifestyle and small apartment, and that was tiny enough for her to tote around with her everywhere she went. Thus was born the world's first virtual pet.

However, most believe that they are little alien creatures from Planet Tamagotchi, who crash landed on earth and were saved by The Professor and his assistant Mikachu. The Professor built them little egg-shaped protection cases so they could survive on earth. Mikachu painted some, took them to school, and starting the Tamagotchi Phenomenon.

Tamagotchi Connection is the advanced generation of Tamagotchi that have landed on earth in search of their long-lost brethren.

  • When Tamagotchi first exploded in popularity in 1996, Bandai sold more the 40 million units worldwide and 12 million units in the United States and Canada.
  • During its peak, 15 Tamagotchi units were sold every minute in the U.S. and Canada.
  • The new Tamagotchi Connection is on track to replicate that success starting in Japan where the first product on the shelf sold out in two days.

Making Friends:
The advanced Tamagotchi Connection features new infrared communication functions allowing the virtual pet to become friends with other Tamagotchi and store a "friend list" of up to 50 friends. The more friends you have, the more fun! Once an adults, the Tamagotchi can connect with a compatible Tamagotchi friend and have a second-generation Tamagotchi that the owner can care for and nurture into an adult to create a possible third and fourth generation.

Meeting the Matchmaker:
If your Tamagotchi connection has not found a compatible mate by the time it reaches 7-10 years old (7-10 days in real time) then Mrs. Busybody will come along and suggest a mate. Reject her suggested mate too many times and your Tamagotchi will become a lonely old singleton. Be careful, you never know how many times she'll return!

Earning "Training" Bars:
The way you train your Tamagotchi will affect how it will grow up and how disciplined it will be (determined by the amount of training bars). To earn training bars, you should praise it when it does something good, but give it a "time out" if it refuses to do what you're asking it to do.

Secrets to Happiness:
Feeding your Tamagotchi a snack helps make it happy — but be cautious because too many snacks can cause cavities!

Keeping Fit:
Keep your Tamagotchi healthy by not only feeding it but also exercising it, too. It needs to stay in tiptop shape in order to grow, mature and creature new generations.

Maker sure you give your Tamagotchi medicine at the first signs of illness (represented by a skull hovering above). The sooner you treat your Tamagotchi's illness, the better. And don't hesitate to give it a double dosage if necessary.

Return to Tamagotchi Planet:
If a winged Tamagotchi appears on your screen, it means that your Tamagotchi decided to go back to its home planet. But don't despair — simply press the (A) and (C) buttons at the same time and your new egg is ready for hatching!
