Kay Bee World of Nintendo Fiber Optic Store Display

I’ve seen plenty of display signs, but this is probably my favorite since I’ve started writing for GameSniped. This sign is from Nintendo’s “World of Nintendo” ad campaign circa the early 1990s, and also features the logo of the now-defunct Kay Bee (or KB) Toys. The kicker is that this is a fiber-optic sign – this allows it to naturally cycle an array of colors in a mesmerizing fashion. Is it the most relevant item? Not necessarily. Is it awesome? You bet your pants.

  1. The World of Nintendo fiber-optic sign is indeed gorgeous…and I never knew there was a KB variant. I only remember the version Toys R Us had (which had no TRU logo; wonder what KB did to be so special).

    • Hey, it IS fragile and I can imagine prone to breaking, so shipping a sign of that magnitute will be hell.

      But as for the latter quote? I agree, kinda shady…
