Zim and Zou - Gameboy

Ah, nostalgia. I grew up playing the Gameboy - it occupied my brother and I on many a long trip. Zim and Zou have painstakingly recreated it - made entirely from paper, and right down to the nitty gritty details: air vents, ports, a removable game cartridge...They made the classic gray version, as well, but this colorful one is my favorite. I wonder how many hours went into making this?

Via Designboom.


  1. Technology is moving so quickly I had forgotten game boys. This one has a great kitsch/cheesy design!

  2. Total nostalgia! For my birthday one year, my brother wrapped up his old Gameboy for me:) I think he was hoping to show my parents he could "share" & then convince them he needed a new one. Sneaky little bugger.
