A lot of classic handheld games can be found here, stuff by Coleco, Mattel and Milton Bradley. I even see a Merlin in that display!

KK Toys

Of course, Atari and Intellivision were on display, behind glass even..

Also in Houston Texas was a store called "The Game Peddlar" which must have caused some confusion, it was a fast growing chain in 1983 and their motto was "We Have Everything".
