As I continue to go through my collection I find so many items I did not even realize I had or I overlooked because of lack of interest, a side effect of buying large lots and packages over the years for specific items you tend to end up with many things you would have never purposely acquired. THIS is a good example, I have very few original Snes games since I have an Everdrive Cart but I definitely had no idea I had this one, I don't even recall seeing it originally in whatever package it came with  :lol: 


MAN I loved using my NES Advantage joystick to play Zelda and Metroid back in the day. I found THIS Camerica "TurboTronic" Joystick I acquired somewhere but have never used before, will be interesting to see how it compares, or doesn't as the case may be. Anyone use one before?

I've never even heard of that Mario Pre-school game. I'll have to look up some game play on that. Looks like a smashing good time.

It looks like one of those Edutainment spinoffs such as Mario Teaches Typing or Mario is Missing

I spotted that Mario Pre School Fun SNES game in a retro game store last summer. It's definitely a quirky title that catches your eye. Kind of like the Sesame Street titles for Atari 2600. I had no idea that there is actually an Atari 2600 kids controller that you can use with those games! I try to inventory my collection and stay on top of new stuff I get, but I still find myself in the same situation, discovering things I didn't realize I had! My last find I totally had forgotten about and rediscovered was Private Eye.

I have a couple sesame street games for NES. Was a part of a bundle of like 9 or 10 games. I would not have bought otherwise.

I'm usually more about playing than "rarity" and reselling/collecting, but that kiddie Mario game seems like it might be worth something -- and more fun to sell than to play.

That joystick is nice looking. Good find- I have never seen one before.

The joystick is interesting to look at, but I can't imagine playing it with the A and B buttons reversed.

Info on Mario's Early Year! Preschool Fun: https://www.mariowik...!_Preschool_FunIt sounds more like a digital activity set than a game. There were two others in the series; Fun With Numbers & Fun with Letters.

You'd want to think so given how weird it is, but you could easily snap up both of those games for $20 together.
