Coleco (which is an acronym for Connecticut Leather Company) was a company founded in February 29, 1932, owned by the Greenberg family. It started working as a leather supplier for shoemakers and ended up making toys, the Cabbage Patch Kids being its most famous product. Taking on the late-seventies video game fever, it launched the most powerful video game system of the era, the ColecoVision, which eventually outsold the Atari 2600 in the 1982-83 season, only to get involved in the video game crash of 1983. The console was discontinued in 1985, and the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and went out of business in 1988.
