The Connecticut Leather Company or COLECO as it was to be known years later, went from producing craft kits, to plastic moulding - to then enter the video game business in the 1970's.

Coleco made handheld games and toys, as well as porting amazing tabletop classic games of the arcade such as Pac-Man, Galaxian and Frogger into people's homes.

It's Colecovision console in 82 was a rival to Atari and released many add-ons and great games during it's lifetime. Whilst the Atari 2600 won the battle in numbers sold and games with it. Many still love the ColecoVision for it's sound and smooth graphical play.
