I am assuming that on the back of every Tamagotchi, there is this same little sticker on the battery cover. Of course, I would think that the same people who eat batteries are the same people who can't read little stickers telling them not to eat the batteries.
I can't fathom the sort of mind set that goes around eating batteries. What sort of life form looks at something like this and thinks, "YUM!". I could understand dogs, as I've even known dogs that eat cat turds. I could even understand very young children, especially babies, since they seem to put everything in their mouth anyways. Bandai recommends this to people ages 8 and up, which I would assume would be way past the age of the "Duracell diet".
Darn, so much for my plans to give out dead batteries this Halloween!
Peeve died after 20 days. I knew this was coming because I was having to fill him with food and make him happy every 30 minutes. The last couple of days was pure hell, as I couldn't really go anywhere or get too deeply involved in anything due to Peeve's constant whining.
Now that Peeve passed on, I had the opportunity to see what sort of scrumptious innards this little virtual pet was powered by.
This is a lifesize picture of the batteries: LR44 batteries
However, some of you may actually want to see the batteries in more detail. So, for those of you who are really hungry, these are the same batteries at 500% magnification:
