Nintendo Famicom’s red-and-white design makes for some stylish stationery!
If you’re from North America or Europe, then you’ll be mostly familiar with the grey-and-black Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) from the 1980s, even though the original Family Computer (Famicom) looked significantly different. Still, any gamer from the 80s and early 90s can appreciate the retro red-and-white look of the top-loading Famicom.
