An open message to all children of the 1990s, this is what we had and we liked it dammit! Sure, Super Mario was cool but did his console have a wood grain finish? I didn’t think so…

    I still think Pong can be fun!

    My dad built ours with a Heathkit kit. We played it on the Heathkit TV he built, too.

    Bip. Boop-bip.

    I am old enough to remember these, but never had one. The first gaming system I had was a Commodore 64. Color baby! Color!

    VIC 20 was my first system 🙂
    The strange this is, I don't remember any of these things (Pong machines that is) at yard sales in later years.
    Love the wood-grain finish. That'd be a great case-mod for a computer! 😛
