Where to Buy

Wondering where you can buy yourself a Tamagotchi, or Tamagotchi accessories at the best prices? Here’s a handy list of links that we’ve prepared for you.

Brand New Tamagotchi

Amazon Japan: https://www.amazon.co.jp/s?k=たまごっち

Amazon Japan offers cheap and fast shipping, and product prices are usually cheaper than its US counterpart when it comes to items of Japanese origin, like the Tamagotchis. On top of that, item tax is excluded if you are shipping to an overseas address! The site’s language can be changed to English, and customer support in English is even offered on top of that.

Used Tamagotchi

Mercari.jp: https://www.mercari.com/jp/search/?keyword=たまごっち

Yahoo Auctions: https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/search/search?auccat=&tab_ex=commerce&ei=utf-8&aq=-1&oq=&sc_i=&fr=auc_top&p=たまごっち

Fril.jp (Rakuma): https://fril.jp/search/たまごっち

Otamart: https://otamart.com/search/?keyword=たまごっち

You need to use a Japanese proxy as most sellers don’t ship internationally – some examples include:

– Dejapan.com
No service fees charged – you just have to pay for a 100 yen consolidation fee per item. Note that they charge an additional 500 yen per listing for items on Mercari.jp. They have an automatic AI bidding system for Yahoo Auctions, too.

– ZenMarket.com
They charge only 300 yen per item, even if you are getting multiples of the same item, and package consolation is free, too, but there will be a money transfer fee involved as well. However, they do not support purchases from Mercari.jp.

If you just want a tablet that just has NFC functionality, as Mr Blinky recommends, a Nexus 7 2013 tablet would be the best and cheapest option – which should not be too difficult to find with a quick search on your local peer-to-peer shopping site.

You can use any Taobao agent or proxy of your choice that ships to your country, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to use the site even if you do not understand Chinese!

Some examples of Taobao agents are:

– ezbuy
Very good and affordable choice for Singaporean buyers. They operate in Malaysia, too.

– Superbuy
All countries are supported – USA, Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, Japan, Spain, Germany, France, and so on.

(please feel free to suggest more agents which are not on this list!)

If you want to avoid having to pay an unnecessarily higher amount, international sites like Amazon US, JapanYouWant, CutiePieKawaii or eBay should be avoided as prices tend to be more marked up on there.
