Kirby's Toy Box is the translated name of a small series of Kirby sub-games titled カービィのおもちゃ箱 (Kābī no Omochabako, meaning Kirby's Toy Box) in Japan. The Kirby's Toy Box series was broadcast over Nintendo's first form of digital distribution, the Satellaview satellite network, and, depending on when the player connected to the network, different games were available at different times. These could be downloaded to the Satellaview base unit, or an 8-megabit rewritable "Memory Pak" ROM cartridge compatible with the Satellaview.

Availability

Because of the discontinuation of the Satellaview in 2000, the nine minigames, and the rest of the Satellaview games, fell into obscurity with no re-releases since and making them completely lost.

In November 2016, A group of Gaming preservationists got a hold of a few off these of the Kirby's Toybox minigames and dumped them online for the public to see. And on the 6th of the same month, another group found four of the other games at an auction in Japan. they were also successfully dumped online for the public and can now be played through emulation. Only one minigame is lost called Ball Rally, but for now, only eight of the nine minigames have been found.

Kābī no Omochabako (lit. Kirby's Toy Box) Publisher Nintendo Developer HAL Laboratory Release SNES (Satellaview) Flag JP February 8, 1996[1] Genre Multiple Mode(s) Single, two-player Platform(s) SNES Kirby's Toy Box is the translated name of a small series of Kirby sub-games titled カービィのおもちゃ箱 (Kābī no Omochabako, meaning Kirby's Toy Box) in Japan. The Kirby's Toy Box series was broadcast over Nintendo's first form of digital distribution, the Satellaview satellite network, and, depending on when the player connected to the network, different games were available at different times. These could be downloaded to the Satellaview base unit, or an 8-megabit rewritable "Memory Pak" ROM cartridge compatible with the Satellaview. As these games did not use the SoundLink live audio streaming technology utilized by other Satellaview games, after being downloaded, they could be played at any time after the broadcast as long as they were not deleted or overwritten.

All the titles start with a teaser of the main menu (corkboard) of Kirby Super Star. The Megaton Punch and Samurai Kirby sub-games are included as well, which are identical to the versions found in Kirby Super Star. The teaser and the borrowed sub-games were likely included for promotional purposes.

Contents[show] Kirby's Toy Box - Baseball カービィのおもちゃ箱 - ベースボール (Kābī no Omochabako - Bēsubōru) means Kirby's Toy Box - Baseball.

This is a simple one screened game that featured Kirby being the ball. It plays somewhat like pinball, where the player must hit the ball in one of the scoring slots, or if he fails to make it in any slot, he gets a strike. The goal is to get as many runs as possible, and just aim for a high score. The game technically plays forever or until the player gets 3 outs. There is a 2-player mode available.

Like every other sub-game in Kirby's Toy Box, this game could only be downloaded by the Satellaview during the brief period it was broadcast.

Kirby's Toy Box - Pinball カービィのおもちゃ箱 - ピンボール (Kābī no Omochabako - Pinbōru) means Kirby's Toy Box - Pinball.

This is also a one screened game, once again using Kirby as the ball. This game is a simple game of pinball, where the player has to launch Kirby into the enemies on the stage to earn points. The hero first has to be shot out of a cannon at whatever power level the player chooses. If Kirby falls down the drain three times, the game ends. As with Kirby's Toy Box - Baseball, the game could be played over and over during the brief period it was broadcast, but could not be played after that time, unless it had already been saved onto. Enemies in this game include King Dedede, Mr. Frosty, Kracko, Co-Kracko, Bounder, Waddle Dee, Crack-Tweet, and Elieel.

Kirby's Toy Box - Star Break カービィのおもちゃ箱 - 星くずし (Kābī no Omochabako - Hoshi Kuzushi) literally means Kirby's Toy Box - Star Break.

This is a breakout-style game where Kirby is the ball. The bat is a trampoline held by two Rick-like hamsters. The game uses a star-counter, which decreases periodically on its own. Hitting any one block will dislodge several stars which fall down from where the block was - catching one will increment the player's star counter by 5. If Kirby (the ball) hits the ground when the star counter is higher than zero, he will bounce once, so the player gets one more chance to catch him. Otherwise, the player loses a life. Every time Kirby touches the ground, the star counter is reduced by 10.

Once the player clears the first five stages, King Dedede appears in stage 6. This stage has no blocks, so the player's star counter cannot increase. Dedede throws hammers from time to time - if Rick is hit, the player will not be able to control him for a short while. Hitting Dedede enough times will defeat him.

Like every other sub-game in Kirby's Toy Box, this game could only be downloaded by the Satellaview during the brief period it was broadcast.
