Disassembled Game Boy Wall Art Displays

With over 15 years of writing experience, Jonathan has had a passion for all things tech-related since watching Inspector Gadget as a child. He's disassembled countless appliances and managed to put a few back together, and one actually still works. When not writing, he can often be found playing video games or accidentally hurting himself tinkering in the garage.

Carefully disassembled and added to an informational background highlighting each part, the GRID Studio Game Boy is a piece of gaming history you can hang on the wall. You can’t play the Game Boy, but you can admire it hanging on the wall on your way for a late-night snack. In my case, usually a banana covered with peanut butter.

Initially unveiled in 1989, the Game Boy handheld console holds a special place in many people’s hearts, including mine. I remember linking two Game Boys together with the included cord and playing Tetris against my brother. I would get so angry when I lost that I’d try to attack him with the cord.

The display measures 13″ x 13″ x 1.8″ and makes the perfect gift for the vintage gamer in your life. Don’t have a vintage gamer in your life? Send one to me. However, GRID Studio warns that for every 100 units sold, the price will increase by $10 because vintage Game Boy prices are rising, presumably because some company keeps buying them all up to make wall displays.
