I've never been a huge fan of hand held gaming.  But these pics are really cool and took me back to the days when I'd see them all over my school campus.

Gameboy ... that's a blast from the past. I'm not certain, but I think I gave my kids that a long, long time ago.

You beat me to mentioning the Mattel Football game, which was VERY popular in the late 70s.  Despite the simple LED display which is pretty laughable by today's standards, the game was actually a lot of fun and I played it constantly for a long time.  I can still remember clearly the touchdown sound that played.
