Simon Part 1: Create a clone of “Simon” the classic electronic toy.

As a child I loved electronic games, and one of the first I remember playing was Simon made by Milton Bradley Electronics (MB Electronics)

Details about the original game can be found here

I own one of the original Simon games, which is still in perfect working order and boxed.

Simon was a game my family played a lot at Christmas time and to this day I still fondly associate Chritmas time with playing electronic games like Simon.

This you I wanted to pay homage to christmases past and build a Simon toy clone as a gift for my family.

This was the end result and I am really pleased with how it turned out.
