Biology: 1 Earth Day = 1 Tamagotchi Year. Your Tamagotchi character will change several times before reaching its adult form. The shape and personality of each Tamagotchi character is based on how well you take care of it! If you take extra good care of your Tamagotchi character the older it will get, and more extensive your family tree may become! Otherwise, it will die, and you will need to start all over again.


FEED: We all need to eat, our Tamagotchi character included! To feed your Tamagotchi character press ‘A’ until a knife and fork appear and press ‘A’ again to decide between going to the FRIDGE or RESTAURANT. Under both options, you can choose between a MEAL or SNACK for your Tamagotchi character. Once you make your decision, Press ‘B’ to feed your Tamagotchi character. If you’re up for an adventure, you can also visit other TOWNS to grab food to bring back to your Tamagotchi character’s FRIDGE. Be careful though you don’t want to overfeed your Tamagotchi character!

MEDICINE: You’ll know your Tamagotchi character needs a little TLC if a sick bug appears on the screen. Press ‘A’ until the FIRST AID KIT icon is highlighted and ‘B’ to give them their medicine.

TOILET: Just like us, your Tamagotchi character needs to go to the bathroom, and it’s your job to clean it up or else your Tamagotchi character will get sick! Press ‘A’ button until the BATHROOM icon is highlighted, then press ‘B’ to go before it poops in your living room!

If they do end up having an accident, choose BATHROOM again and a broom will appear to clean up their mess.

Sound: For a little peace and quiet, you can turn off the sound on your Tamagotchi device by going to your PROFILE, selecting SETTINGS, clicking on SOUNDS and toggle sound ON or OFF!

Battery: Loosen the screw on the back and take out the old batteries. Then insert 2 new AAA batteries and re-screw the back cover.
