The FamiTama is the Japanese equivalent to the V5 (Familitchi). It is available bundled with a DVD. Prizes from the games on the DVD are transferred to the FamiTama via passwords. During the Christmas holidays, I reverse-engineered enough of the FamiTama's TamaExpo web site login & logout passwords to be able to make up my own logout passwords (to award myself whichever prize I wanted.) With a hint from tarokaja, I reverse-engineered the DVD passwords too. The knowledge learned in this process has enabled me to create DVD passwords that can be used to gain almost every item available for the FamiTama for free.
To enter a DVD password into a FamiTama, activate the connect (heart) icon in the upper right corner. Select DVD from the connect menu. When prompted, enter one of the passwords from the chart below, into your FamiTama. Repotchi will appear, and give you a present.
The V5 does not have such a DVD, but it does have a similar password system. DVD passwords for the FamiTama work when entered as Special passwords on the V5.
To enter a Special password into a V5, activate the connect (heart) icon in the upper right corner. Select Special from the connect menu. When prompted, enter one of the FamiTama DVD passwords from the chart below, into your V5. Repotchi will appear, and give you a present.
Note: Some of the descriptions may not be accurate.
Most items can be used for as many times as you want. The family trip ticket is a one-time use item. Using it sends your family on a trip. You don't need to take care of them while they are on their trip. This is the V5's pause function. On the V5 the family will not return until you call them back. On the FamiTama, the family will return at bed time if you don't call them back earlier.

Note about Bonding Levels
The bonding level you see on the status screen is from 0% to 100% in steps of 10%. Internally, bonding is measured on a scale of 0 to 999 points. To see bonding go up by 10%, you need to use a 1-point item up to 100 times, or a 3-point item up to 34 times.
