    As far as computer themed toys for children go, that one is actually pretty neat. The working mouse is a treat. I have this weird thing, though, where I will notice some little charecter and wonder who drew that. Wonder how many people actually take the time to notice it. My daughter definitely never talked about the cute cartoon mouse playing soccer on the frame of the electronic soccer net toy, yet someone made that charecter, and it was printed on a sticker to put on the toy. So seeing those animations really hit that feeling hard. Someone made them, likely only for this one toy. I wonder how many people had ever seen them before today.

And when it's super janky (this transfers to cheaply made toys in general too) its more of a "you poor thing, I wonder if any kid has ever really loved you" as if it's toy story or something lol

    Thing is... My parents bought me one of these (The previous generation) when I was like 3 and I ABSOLUTELY loved it. I could spend literally hours upon hours doing God knows what and just learning stuff. It even taught me how to multiply, and I still have it somewhere in their place. You could even attach a printer to it through a prehistorical serial port.
    Besides, one of the activities was a bunch of National Anthems played with that crappy 8-bit like sound. I think that's why most of my little friends of that time ended up with migraines or voices in their heads.

I was a strange kid but I loved it to bits. I remember, the monitor itself had a black bezel with all the games listed and a super simple little screen in the middle. There was also clear plastic that wrapped around the monitor. The keyboard was black with white keys and the mouse itself was solid black.

    It sounds to me like some of the sound effects are stolen from Star Trek: The Next Generation, but being destroyed by the terrible speakers. Like when you go through the different choices on the main menu I’m pretty sure that’s the transporter sound effect, and I heard some game bleeps that sounded specifically like the bleeps of the ship’s computer (edit: it’s the doorbell, I’m such a petaQ) in that show.
