I remember waaay back getting my daughters the Tamagochis and they loved them. One of the “issues” we had with the Tamas was that I would have to play the game when the kids were at school or something else. As if I didn’t already have enough to do.
Now with my boys, the new TamaTown is new and improved! I no longer have to Tama-sit! There’s a pause button. You can learn more about the new and improved TamaTown Tama-Go's in the Press Release Below. Also learn about the Blinged Out Gotchi Sweepstakes.
TamaTown™ Tama-Go™ by Tamagotchi® Launches
The “Oh My Gotchi!” National Sweepstakes
(CYPRESS, CA – September 29, 2010) – Bandai America Incorporated is thrilled to announce the hatching of its new, next generation TamaTown Tama-Go by Tamagotchi, the virtual pet known and cherished by young, nurturing fans worldwide. With dozens of Gotchi figures, TamaTown Tama-Go offers kids limitless opportunities to raise and interact with the Gotchi figures at home, on the go or online at www.tamatown.com. Available now at major retailers, the redesigned TamaTown Tama-Go features a new high-contrast, four gray-scale display screen, a changeable design face plate and the choice of Gotchi figure.
“Bandai has expanded on the success of Tamagotchi by incorporating fan feedback to improve the play experience of the new TamaTown Tama-Go,” says Danielle Armbrust, Director of Marketing, Bandai America Incorporated. “We share the same fond memories of the first generation Tamagotchi, so we’re excited to see how kids enjoy interacting with and collecting the new Gotchi characters and exploring new ways to nurture and play games with their Gotchi character in the expanded online TamaTown world.”
TamaTown Tama-Go offers kids the chance to act as young caregivers by nurturing and raising their own virtual pet through feeding, playing games and checking statistics of happiness, hunger and discipline while also connecting with other friends and their Tama-Gos. Another exciting new option is the ability to “pause.” Now caregivers and friends no longer need to Tama-sit! Fans can now enhance the fun on www.tamatown.com, which offers Web visitors the chance to play games and nurture their Gotchi characters in the three simulated worlds of Swirly Sweet City, Forest Falls and Flower Hills Park.

I really liked the new and updated version of the Tamagochi which is TamaTown. It allows you interactive access online. Registration is fast and easy! Two things I really like.
Playing in TamaTown will take some getting used to. I also didn’t understand how to use some of the features. Thankfully when it comes to the interactive games they have “help” buttons!
My 7yo became pretty interested in the site and I’m letting him try it out. I know it’s a learning curve so we’ll have to see how it goes.
As with the older Gotchi’s you get the pleasure of playing with your Gotchi, feeding it, cleaning up after it, etc. The cool part with the new ones is you can attach Gotchi Characters to your Tama-Go to unlock games! How fun is that?
Hurray, you get to win a one TamaTown Tama-Go and one Gotchi figure! Hello happy kids!
