Frogger Coleco Tabletop Arcade
(Coleco - 1982)
In the 1980s, Coleco came out with a line of miniaturized versions of popular arcade hits such as this great little Frogger tabletop arcade. These fantastic scaled down versions of the popular stand up arcade games were advertised on TV and in magazines and catalogs everywhere. I used to watch the commercials and say "Dang! I want one of those!"
The small VFD screen is bright and the sounds were crisp... the joystick is durable and responsive and instructions were conveniently glued to the battery cover in case you lost the instruction manual.
Of all of the Coleco tabletop arcade series, I would have to say that Frogger is the most faithful to the original arcade game. This is one of those games that you could just keep on playing for hours, as the gameplay felt just like the original. But these shrunk down dedicated systems were more of a novelty and not much competition for real home video game systems like the Vectrex home arcade, or the Atari systems.
I must say that I really enjoy the mini arcade cabinet design and the playability of this version of Frogger is just as good as the original. So if you want a great vintage conversation piece that can be tons of fun, this Coleco Frogger will fit the bill.

Coleco Frogger Trivia
In 1984, Post Cereal was running a promotion that involved the Coleco Tabletop Arcades with their Super Sugar Crisp, Cocoa Pebbles and Fruity Pebbles cereals... they were giving away 5,000 of the games and included gameboards for Frogger, Galaxian and Donkey Kong as the premiums inside the ceral boxes.
