In the olden days of gaming, when quarters were a hot commodity and color graphics were the newest innovation, one name stood out as king: Atari. The games were visually simple, but still retain their hold as some of the most challenging and fun games ever created. Sadly, it’s just too difficult to carry around an Atari system and a bag of cartridges and controllers (both joystick and paddle) with you wherever you go. So, we’ve found a pocket sized solution.

Each keychain has a secret – they contain real games. Plug in the included 6 foot cable (on a battery powered reel) into the keychain and your TV , and you really can enjoy the games of yesteryear. Yes, you read that right: these keychains contain real Atari games, and are fully playable!

Here’s how the games break down:
* Joystick 1 – Asteroids and Millipede
* Joystick 2 – Centipede and Yar’s Revenge
* Paddle – Pong, Breakout, and Warlords

Each keychain comes with a separate pocket size reel that holds six feet of cord and RCA jacks (included). Powered by 3 AAA batteries (not included). Single player only.

The price of the Atari 2600 Keychains is $14.99

Metal Desk Catapult

Office warfare has always existed. Sometimes it’s full out regicide, but normally it just begins by pestering your coworkers. Office warfare is, however, very addictive. It starts when you shoot your first rubber band at an unsuspecting person standing near the water cooler. It then progresses to spit balls and flinging small objects with rulers. Eventually, like most addictions, you begin to use the harder stuff: siege engines.

Clink???‚?¦clink???‚?¦clink. That’s the sound of this all-metal (except, of course, for the mini rope) desk catapult ratcheting back into its loading position. Once it is poised, load in your projectile du jour (we’ve found caffeinated mints make excellent ammo) and let it fly. This catapult is perfect for displaying on the corner of your desk. It looks so fancy, everyone will think it’s just decoration. And that’s when you nail them. Defend your desk in style.

The price of the Metal Desk Catapult is $34.99
