My New,Old Mego 2-XL

22 10 2013

So I finally managed to score a classic Mego 2-XL educational robot shaped 8-track playing toy. The device asks you questions, and you choose multiple choice answers, pushing the corresponding answer button. Simple but cool, I really wanted one of these when I was a kid…And now I have one!

Check out the crappy demo’s I made below:

Flea Market Find: Boxed Merlin!

1 06 2013

I was super happy to find a boxed, classic handheld multi-game, Merlin complete with manual and ac adapter for $15 yesterday (May 31, 2013) at a flea market on our way home from vacation.

This unit plays several simple games including a fun little music composition game.

My Q*Bert Tabletop Game!

31 03 2013

Hey folks, hope all is well.

About 6 months ago I picked up a Parker Brothers Q*Bert Tabletop game. I have a number of these mini arcade machines, most being released by Coleco. This one is a Parker Brothers game and is surprisingly good when you take into account the limitations of these machines.

Check out the short demo video I made, below!
