Thumby™ is the tiniest handheld console - play games at the tips of your thumbs, give yourself a cool keychain accessory, and easily learn to code with this all-in-one piece of tech!

This miniature console features a responsive D-pad and two action buttons, offering a fully playable experience with five pre-loaded games, including a pint-sized version of Snake, a side-scroller, a multi-directional shooter, classic Pong, and an epic dungeon RPG.
