Where to Purchase Virtual Pets
Bladeagotchi will no longer be updated from the start of 2012, as I lost nearly my entire collection in the floods of 2011. Bladeagotchi is now archived and kept online for historical purposes only.
Where to purchase the damn things?
Edit 2022-02-19: This is one of the very few pages on Bladeagotchi that I have decided to update. In the past 20 or so years, a lot of sites and sellers have gone out of business or have just vanished off the face of the earth. So I've decided to update this page as a result.
[eBay Global/USA] & [eBay Australia]
This is the best place to get virtual pets, you'll be amazed what you can find. Probably the best place to find vintage virtual pets but beware of fakes.
[Japan You Want Tamagotchi Store]
Probably my go to site now, particularly for the new licensed Nano's. They sell a large array of Tamagotchi as well as Digimon products and accessories, and also Japanese video game software. Their shipping prices are fairly reasonable as well. I actually highly recommend them!
(Note: Their old store was located at japanyouwant.com but they've since moved to jyw-tmgc.com).
Melissa is always selling something. Nano Pets, Giga Pets and she also has some unusual and rare virtual pets, too.
Jason's eBay store]
An honest and reliable seller, that is always selling something. Very cheap and very quick postage. Again, you'll be amazed what can show up in here.
I was quite surprised and saddened when this eBay Store vanished, Jason always had awesome gear for sale. Alas, he's no longer even registered on eBay.
LVPANDA88 (DPM88)'s eBay items]
Another extremely honest and reliable seller. He isn't always selling all the time, but when he does stock Virtual Pets, he stocks many rare and unusual tamas. He also sells the latest ones, and has reasonable postage rates. I've had no problems whatsoever with this seller, and quite frankly I think he is the best seller there is on eBay. This seller used to be known as DPM88.
This amazing person hasn't sold on eBay for quite a few years now, and sadly is no longer even registered on there.
Asian Heartlands eBay store]
Asian trinkets, virtual pets pop up sometimes - search within her store for virtual pets and see what shows up!
Can't find this store anymore, I'm unsure when they vanished.
World Shop Direct]
Tamagotchi, Giga Pets, other virtual pets and Asian trinkets. They're extremely expensive and their postage rates are ridiculous! I have never bought from them so I cannot comment any further.
They appear to have gone out of business as well, with a suspended webpage.
GoldenMonkey is no longer in business, and hasn't been for well over a decade now.
With social media being the way it is, Facebook Marketplace is a good place to look, as well as Facebook Groups geared towards Tamagotchi and Virtual Pets in general. I myself have purchased from other people in the Tamagotchi Traders Facebook page and have never had any issues.
Please do not email me asking if I will sell my collection. I lost nearly my entire collection in the floods of 2011, and most of them were irreplaceable - I will never find another Hana Hana Mi for example. What's left - which wasn't very much - is very precious to me.
