Lightboy for Gameboy

The Light Boy was a necessity for the original Gameboy because there really was not a backlight to the LCD for the original handheld. Strangely enough, it has become a popular collector’s item for classic gaming fans.

The Light Boy attached to your Gameboy and not only provided light, but also a magnifying glass. It required two AA batteries and was an official licensed product for Nintendo. Here are some of the magazine ads for the Light Boy.
