Has anyone played this red electronic game before? I was addicted to this toy and I will definitely buy one (the vintage one) again!
This toy is called the Merlin. The Merlin was a handheld electronic game released by Parker Brothers in the late 70's. Merlin had a rectangular form approximately eight inches long and three inches wide. It touch-type buttons with red flashing lights. The toy held 6 different games : Tic Tac Toe, Music Machine, Echo (a game similar to Simon), Blackjack 13, Magic Square Pattern and Mindbender.
This toy was very popular during the early 80's and I remembered to be the only person to have ever owned one in my small humble town in Souther Philippines. Thanks to my Aunt who kept sending us toys from the US.
