today i learned – weds 15th mar 2017

this is going to be super quick today (and tomorrow) because i’m away on a photoshoot at the mo πŸ‘πŸ» … i’m not a model, just so you know 😬

anyway, you know everyone’s favourite japanese games console maker (if you like mario)? well, #tdil that nintendo was originally a trading card company – also, they’re 127 years old!?Β 

started on 23rd september 1889 by fusajiro yamauchi, nintendo originally produced handmade hanafuda playing cards. fast forward to the 1960s and nintendo had tried several different business ventures that didn’t work.

in the 1970s, they developed into a video game company and became super influential and successful πŸ‘πŸ»

and there you go! random fact for the day sorted πŸ˜πŸ¦† sorry it’s fairly super quick, pretty cool none-the-less 😬

right, ta rah! πŸ”«

 

(today’s stolen image comes from the nintendo wiki –>here<– … i think it’s a genuine old pack of original nintendo trading cards 😬)
