Back in the 1980s, Space Invaders and Pac Man were pioneers in the games industry. In fact, until they came along there was no ‘games industry’ to speak of (unless Chess and Scrabble count, but we rather think not). Enter the black and white pixellated arcade screen; the tiny rockets launchers, firing towards alien invaders from outer-space; and the mini munching man, eating his way out of mazes while hotly pursued by a team of floating ghosties. The world has changed a lot since then, but the likes of Space Invaders and Pac Man remain iconic markers of a bygone time. And, while we’re all about modern technology at Yes I Want It, we’ve also got a real soft spot for all-things retro - which is why we’ve got an entire range of gifts and items dedicated solely to the vintage arcade game. Step back in time, to a world of gaming before iPhones, before the internet, and before Pokémon GO…
These little, retro key rings blend 80s cool with 90s tech: think big old arcade consoles, conveniently condensed into Tamagotchi-sized gizmos. Bright, primary colours give these mini machines instant appeal (clock up cool points just by getting your keys out!) while all of the original details (from sound effects to controls to display) will give you a time-bending, authentic experience of vintage gaming.
The perfect gift for the lover of all-things 80s, these handy keyrings are sure to spark joy in even the hardiest of hearts. Cute, colourful, and convenient, you simply can’t go wrong with these retro reboots!
Gamers beware: simple though they may seem, these games are HIGHLY addictive!
