Picture of Amigurumi Gameboy Color
Way back in 2001 my siblings and I received our first hand held, the wonderful Nintendo Gameboy Color, which was probably used and abused more than it deserved by four eager children.  While our original gameboy is now long gone, I’ve tried my hand at making a cuddly, cutesy version of it, and here’s the end result! ^.^

*EDIT: I added the gameboy color pictures I used for reference, and to give an idea of colors to use :)

Step 1: You will need

Picture of You will need
-cotton yarn (I used hot blue because it reminded me of the teal gameboy I used to have, but you can use any color you like)

-size G crochet hook

-yarn needle


-cardboard (I used an old box)

-black, dark gray and light gray felt

-embroidery floss in black, white, red, pink, purple, green, yellow and blue (I picked up a package of 36 skeins for $3.99 that had all the colors I needed)

-embroidery needle

-tacky glue

Step 2: Crocheting the Gameboy

Picture of Crocheting the Gameboy
The gameboy is made of a front and back and one long strip for the sides. The front and back have a squared top and a slightly rounded bottom to replicate the Nintendo Gameboy Color’s shape.  

Front & Back:
Row 1. CH 14, SC in first stitch from hook, SC x 13, turn
Row 2. SC x 14, turn
Rows 3 – 20. Repeat row 2
Row 21. Skip first stitch, SC x 12, turn
Row 22. Skip first stitch, SC x 10, slip stitch to next stitch, tie off

Repeat for back piece.

Side piece:
Row 1. CH 3, SC in first stitch from hook, SC 2, turn
Rows 2 – 68. SC x 3, turn
Tie off.
