Suspiciously retro game-themed craft supplies

Rate this Entry
I've noticed, with good-natured amusement, that someone working in the buying or design departments at one of my favourite craft supplies retailers, Baker Ross, must be into retro video games.

Over time, they've added a couple of products to their line-up that are very obviously inspired by Puyo Puyo, and The Legend of Zelda. Take a look at these bouncy balls, and bracelet charms.


These are listed as Dotty Eye Jet Balls, and their Puyo Puyo-esque style can't be denied.


And these Heart Charms include a design that's very much like the Piece of Heart items from Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series.

Whether the strong resemblances that these items bear to retro gaming icons are coincidences or not, I don't know, but they certainly made me smile, either way.
