While out thrift shopping this past weekend, I spotted this sweet little gem in a mixed pile of items! I’m not a handheld collector, so I can’t say I knew anything about Gakken handhelds. But something about it simply told me it was old and interesting. I picked it up on a hunch, and it turns out that my hunch was right! These little games are fairly rare. The cheapest ones on eBay are about $40. Bummer mine is missing the battery cover. Otherwise, it’s in pretty good shape for its age.
Here‘s a bit more info on them. Since I don’t collect these, I’m happy to pass mine along through eBay for cheap. Starting bid is 99 cents, so have at it!
