About

I started this business in 2016 after making my first Gameboy Planter at home. I've always liked putting plants in weird things and I have a deep nostalgic love for gaming (especially Nintendo). When I had this idea of making a Gameboy planter I knew I had to make it work somehow. After a lot of practice, trial and error it evolved into what you see today. No real Gameboys are hurt in the making of these products I only use new Gameboy shells made with 100% recycled plastic. The shells and toys are imported to me from companies I work with overseas.
I try to keep thing eco-friendly, the bubble wrap I use is 100% Biodegradable. If you can please recycle the box :)
I hope you enjoy my products as much as I enjoy creating them!
Thank you for visiting my shop!

Do you ship Internationally?

Yes I do. Rates are inconsistent and change constantly so unfortunately I cannot give quotes.

Do you make replicants of your past work?

No. Each piece is one of a kind, I try to make every piece unique and different :)

Are they made with real Gameboys?

NO real Gameboys are harmed in the making, I only use replacement Gameboy shells made with recycled plastic.

Do you make the Pokemon figures?

The toys use for my pieces are sourced from Japan, I try to stick with authentic gently used Nintendo toys from brands like Bandai and Tomy. Some of the toys I’ve even brought back myself from Gachapon machines and toy stores in Japan.

Are the plants real?

The plants are artificial and the moss is preserved, so the planters require no maintenance. Everything inside the Gameboy is strongly glued together. However in the rare event that the items are delivered to you loosely, please get in touch.

Sustainability

I really care about the environment and I try to keep my business as green as possible. I use Gameboy shells are made with recycled plastic, and 100% biodegradable bubble wrap and recycled boxes for packing. It does make my prices a little higher but I hope you understand the choices I make are always for the best of planet earth!
