People have enjoyed miniaturized versions of their favorite full-size counterparts for centuries. One need only think of such items as miniature train sets and dollhouses to be reminded of this curious fascination with such items. Video game machines are certainly no exception, and during the 1970s and 1980s, some of the biggest competitors in the market produced handheld versions of their full-size arcade counterparts. For those persons with a penchant for such devices, Steven Read (a long-time enthusiast) has created this fun website which features photographs and profiles of some of these time-honored favorites. The miniature arcade games are organized under their respective companies, such as Tandy, Nintendo, Mattel, and of course, Coleco. In fact, many visitors will find it interesting that several of these companies (Coleco and Tandy) started life as companies that made leather goods. Regardless of this fact, there are dozens of fine old arcade chestnuts to revisit here, including Dig-Dug, Mr. Do, and that most legendary of all pixilated of the great apes, Donkey Kong.
