The Game Child is an LCD handheld game, released sometime in the 1990s by an unknown company. It's designed to resemble Nintendo's Game Boy.

The Game Child was followed up with a sequel system titled the Game Child MK II (also known as the Card Game MK II and Game Kid MK II).

There is also another Game Boy-lookalike called the Game Kid (QGH-78), which was sold under the Game Child name at some point, and is presumably from the same manufacturer.[1]

Appearance[edit | edit source]

The original Game Child is almost identical in appearance to the original Game Boy, although with some differences. There is only one button, the d-pad is red instead of black, the start and select button placement is different, and there is an on-and-off button instead of a switch. Humorously, the back of the console even has a fake battery door where the Game Boy's is located, despite batteries going in the top of the unit instead.

The Game Child MK II features a more original appearance. It has no d-pad at all, only two buttons. The MK II had interchangeable "screen cartridges" with different games (similar to the Neo Double Games), but it doesn't seem other cartridges were ever actually sold separately.

The Game Kid features the same control layout of the MK II but features the Game Boy-like casing of the original Game Child.
