There will be many of you reading this who simply don’t know what a “Gameboy” is. For those people it is (or was) an 8-bit handheld game console developed and manufactured by Nintendo and it was launched in 1989. OK, so the gaming experience is a little retro now, but those of us who remember gaming on them have fond memories of games like Tetris and Super Mario Land. So hence the reason there are so many amazing Gameboy gift ideas out there, but here is what I think are ten of the very best of them…
