Fisher Price stopped making Pixelvision a couple years after they started
because it didn't sell well with kids.  But it sold great with artists.
They refuse to re-release the product because they're a toy company and
don't want to market to video artists, but they could easily sell the thing
for triple the price & keep them moving off the shelves.  Whatever happened
to "anything for a buck"???
If you ever see one at a garage sale (yes, I know someone who snagged one
for $10 at a garage sale!) or used, grab it!  They're truly incredible
little things.
