The Game Child almost has a similar appearance to the regular and genuine Game Boy, although with some differences. The d-pad is red instead of black, the start and select button placement is different, an off and on button instead of the usual "on-and-off" switching, no cartridges and a smaller screen.

The Game Child is an LCD handheld game, released sometime in the 1990s by an unknown company. It is 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]

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.
