Q. When will Tamagotchi Connection be released in my area / city / country?
I live in the United States so I don't have any real resource to find out when Tamagotchi will be released in your area or country. Some ways you might be able to find this information out are:

  1. Bandai's website: Tamagotchi.com or Bandai.com
  2. News resources: news.google.com or news.yahoo.com
  3. Call around to local toy stores and ask when they are expecting shipments.
  4. Look through the local newspaper for sales ads or other information.
  5. Ask for help on the Tamagotchi Chat board and there maybe someone else who lives in your area that may have the information.

Q. Where can I buy Tamagotchi Connection in my area / city / country?
A. Tamagotchi Connection, Plus and Connexion have already been released in Japan and parts of Europe. They were released in the United States on August 15, 2004.

I live in the United States so I don't have any real resource to find out when Tamagotchi Connection will be sold in your area or country.

The typical places to look would be:

  1. Toy stores, specifically large chains.
  2. Toys 'R Us, Wal*Mart and Target have been known to carry Tamagotchi and these places have been the resource for many people in finding Tamagotchi Connection.
  3. Amazon.com has them / will have them soon to order online.
  4. If you are desperate you can try ebay.com. You may pay a little higher price, plus you have to pay for shipping. But you also get a chance at the different versions (Connection, Connexion and Plus).

Some ways you might be able to find this information out are:

  1. Bandai's website: Tamagotchi.com or Bandai.com
  2. News resources: news.google.com or news.yahoo.com
  3. Call around to local toy stores and ask when they are expecting shipments.
  4. Look through the local newspaper for sales ads or other information.
  5. Ask for help on the Tamagotchi Chat board and there maybe someone else who lives in your area that may have the information.

A. Use this when:

  1. The Tama beeps and the attention light turns on.

Q. When can my Tamagotchi have Tamababies?
A. Your Tamagotchi will know when it's time, you don't have to do anything special. Of course if you want your Tamagotchi to have Tamababies with another Tama via connecting, you'll need to connect them often. Your Tamagotchi is ready to have Tamababies:

  1. When your Tamagotchi is an adult character.
  2. When you have 5 hearts with a connected Tamagotchi (both have to be adults).
  3. Or when the Matchmaker comes to find your Tamagotchi a mate.

Q. Do I have to have two Tamagotchi to get Tamababies?
A. Absolutely not! If you don't want to buy a second Tamagotchi Connection and you don't know anyone with a Connection, you can simply keep raising your Tamagotchi and Mrs. Busybody will always find someone for your Tamagotchi to help keep the generations going.

Q. Who runs this website at mimitchi.com?
A. This website, mimitchi.com, is run by a single individual, not a corporation or company of any sort.

My name is Kat. I have been building and maintaining mimitchi.com since 1996. Mystic Fortress has gone through many global changes throughout the years, including having various URLs and site names. I create and maintain the materials on this website in my free time. Delays in updates are caused by my full time job and pure laziness. I'm an adult (so they tell me) but a child at heart. I enjoy collecting the various things you see on mimitchi.com as well as several other things.

I live in California with my hubby-to-be Brendan. Brendan has made several contributions to the site throughout the years, specifically art and flash games. Brendan has done a ton of work on the Connection section and also helps moderate the Tamagotchi Forums.
