I thought I'd found a new style of Cragstan Periscope but on closer inspection of the bottom photo in the Museum I can see that it is also a red version but this isn't stated. Some nice pictures on this link though.

Are you going to bid on it? I'll probably go for it if no one else wants it...

No I'm not. It will go too high for me. Good luck if you bid Rik Smile .

Whatever happened to that unusual Rosy? Has it been paid for now? Nothings turned up here yet.

Humm....seems that i'm "digging up" some old posts (it's Halloween..
time to dig old graves...err...posts) Razz Laughing

A friend of mine who lives in South America by the nickname of "Scaramouche",
has confirmed the years that it was released: 1951 and 1956!

Yup, that's make it now 55 & 60 years for the first electronic handheld
game. I saw one on auction on Mercado Argentina for about $72.00 USD
and told him to get it ASAP. That's what he did. Wink

Mauro (aka Scaramouche) was so pleased to get one that he made a small
demonstration on Youtube (sorry, it's in Spanish):

But this is the second model (1956), the first model looks like this:

and it was released in 1951!!!

Don't ask me to translate it, i'm a beginner to understand Spanish but he
speaks and writes in English. Apart of collecting some electronic handhelds,
he also collects portable game systems. You can check out his web site
here (again in Spanish, use Google Translation):

Have fun! Very Happy
