Nintendo Game & Watch Donkey Kong 1982

Sunday, December 10th, 2006

The immortal orange Donkey Kong was one of the best selling Game & Watch hand held games durring the early 80’s. The game is still a nice collectors item, eventhou it was sold in several millions just in Scandinavia.

The Nintendo Game & Watch series included around 60 different model produced in a period of over 10 years from 1980 to 1991! My collection still isn’t complete - I still need around 5 or 6 games - the rare models ofcourse! If you’re interested in trading / selling Game & Watch - please do contact me at kenneth@retrolution.dk

I picked up this game at a local garage sale, its complete with serial number, battery cover and most important intact closing hasp - it will be added to my personal collection.

Here’s a true gem from the early years of Danish kitchen machinery - the mixer is fully working, complete with a Blender, meat grinder and mixer!

A mixer like this was a part of the exhibition “The industrial Icons: Danish Design” held at the Danish National Museum of Industrial Art in 2004.
