Considering Nintendo has been around since 1889, it is no surprise that their products have featured heavily in the childhoods and leisure times of huge swathes of the population. After mastering the market with their first venture of playing cards, the company tried their hand at taxi driving and instant rice, amongst other things… with limited success. It was a good thing then, that the 1966 maintenance engineer, Gunpei Yokoi, enjoyed designing toys in his spare time. His invention of the Ultra Hand put Nintendo back on the entertainment path that would ultimately lead to the creation of the first ever hand-held game console in 1979. Fast forward to present day and Nintendo continues to innovate and are leaders in the entertainment market; search for amazing deals with Groupon to add to, or start, your very own Nintendo collection.
