This picture is slightly larger than life size. I scanned the picture in at 115%, at 72 pixels per inch. This will give you a fairly accurate picture of what a Tamagotchi looks like and how large it is. Of course, since this picture is two-dimensional, it tends to make the Tamagotchi look larger than it really is.
Peeve died after 20 days, more or less. I had to go out of town a couple of times and placed Peeve in a state of "suspended animation", which is a fancy term for pause. I did take Peeve with me, just in case I'd have a few moments to spare. I mainly did not want to deal with the beeping and demands of this little cyber pet while I was doing an equipment install for a rather high profile customer. The last couple of days of Peeve's life were rather annoying for me because he would be demanding attention roughly every 20 minutes, requiring a fill up on food and needing to be made happy again. I couldn't complete a thought because Peeve would interrupt to let me know it had some needs. The morning of the 21st day arrive, Peeve woke up and immediately starting beeping, but it was beeping unlike any of the previous beeping it did. These were single tone beeps, in a steady and timed pattern. I have a feeling that Bandia wanted to make sure you saw your little pet pass into the great beyond.
No point in being sad about this, after all, it is just a toy and not a real pet. To be honest, I was a little bit relieved. Having never raised a Tamagotchi before, I figured if Peeve got really old, I would have no life, constantly feeding and playing with it. Now that Peeve had passed on, I took advantage of the opportunity to take some more pictures. Please take your pick of which set of pictures are of interest to you.
