The Sega Pico, also known as the Kids Computer Pico, was an video game console aimed towards children produced by Sega Toys. The aim of creating the Pico was to get more young children to use video game systems, with the target age group being ages 2 to 8. It had a total of twenty games released in the USA, two of which were of the Sonic the Hedgehog franchise. In Japan, games are still produced for this platform, with over 170 having been produced by the year 2001.[1]
