My Dad was clearing out some storage space and came across this toy/calculator I had as a kid
where the main game is a Game & Watch clone with a monkey throwing coconuts and you control the elephant trunk.
I had forgotten all about this thing, but now that I have it again, I remember playing this a ton as a kid.
Anybody else ever remember this thing, or any others like it?

Oh, man, my youngest brother had one of those. That's a blast from the past!

I don't even remember that, but I had some early 80s cartridge based mini computer of sorts that had a keyboard, brown carts, and a widescreen proportioned big pixel LCD screen. It was meant for learning but enough had a game mode on each of them too which kept it more fun for an educational device. It was the Mattel Childrens Discovery System. The screen was small like 20 x 50 or close to that. There were two straight up fun carts called Arcade 1 and 2, but the rest were not, and the unit I think had some art and math tool built into it.

Each program you got on a cart came with an overlay that went over the keyboard area of the thing.
