Atari 2600 Joystick Earrings are a Joy to Wear

Gamer girls with a taste for retro consoles will get a tiny thrill from these handmade earrings, done up to look like miniature Atari 2600 joysticks. I always loved the firm, digital feeling of the old 2600 joystick – it worked great for arcade style games.

They’re made by Etsy seller Catrina’s Toybox, using polymer clay. She used a touch of paint to add the detailed directional markers, and even gave it that worn feel that used to always happen after your sweaty palms were resting on the joystick for marathon Pitfall sessions.

You can get your hands (and ears) on a pair of these Atari 2600 joystick earrings for $25(USD) over on Etsy. Catrina says she’s got more geeky crafts in the works, so we’re looking forward to checking those out as well. Hopefully, she has some paddles on the way – I always enjoyed Super Breakout.
