Game & Watch is a line of handheld electronic games produced by Nintendo from 1980 to 1991.
Takara Tomy Arts made these good old games into solar-powered miniature "GAME & WATCH" keychain, now on display at TOY Forum 2010.

Supervised by Nintendo. Can you tell the difference?
Each game comes in different colour.
Solar panel. No need to worry about the battery life.
It'll work as long as there's light.
Of course there's no battery case, but there was a dummy lid on the back.
In Parachute you have to prevent every parachuter from landing in the shark infested waters by catching them in your boat.
Octopus. Get the sunken ship's treasure without getting caught by the octopus.
In Chef you must flip the food with a pan and keep it airborne.
The only downside is, you can't actually play these miniatures. It's just something cute to look at, though you can change the speed of the "games" by right button. Hopefully a playable version will come out soon.
