Discussion of 'Dedicated Purpose' Electronic Toys and Games
Back in the 80's there was great concept that is continuing to disappear. Companies made electronic toys and games who only played one game. The physical design of the item reflected the personality of the game, cause the item wasn't designed to play any other future games, and so all each looked pretty unique. So this is a place to discuss the Parker Bros. Merlin, Bandai Crazy Climber, countless games by MGA (Micro Games of America), the Copy Cat, Milton Bradley Simon, etc, etc, and not stuff like the PSP, the Gameboy, etc...
