The Tiny Arcade is an easy assembly and pretty fun mini arcade machine that measures 2.95 x 1.57 x 1.26 inches. As shown in third images, the complete arcade cabinet sports the classic appearance of the arcade machines from the 1980s along with nice detailing, but it’s tiny enough to fit in your palm. Meanwhile, using included arcade stickers, you can add more detailing to the transparent arcade machine.

Using a flat head screwdriver and tape, you can easily assemble them into the miniature arcade cabinet.
