Simple Simon Will Travel
Which, I think, is sort of the point. Simon was a simple (some would say stupid) game that anyone could master. And now it's been released in a miniature form, on a keychain. Forget the sitting around in a circle, watching the original frisbee sized toy hoot and holler. Now you can hold lilliputian Simon in your hands, operating it as easily as sending a text. Your kid will love it, especially the toddler set. And the droning tones from the backseat will transport you right back to childhood, staring at Simon, wondering what other magical toy would emerge from the wonders of computing. If only you'd bought Apple stock then.
Find the tiny Simon at Perpetual Kid. He's just ten bucks for at least ten minutes of retro fun.
