I have seen those around. I haven't seen them sell for much of anything. I imagine they're just worth whatever someone happens to feel like paying, like all of the TG3 boards floating around. Maybe somebody would bother to harvest the switches if they were relatively early SKCM white Alps and could get the boards for $30 or less. If they're simplified Alps, I doubt anybody would care outside of maybe the novelty of having a ridiculous child's keyboard with a horrible layout to type on for laughs.

I had one of those. I was patient and eventually sold it for about $35 to a guy who bought it for his grandmother with macualar degeneration. She was thrilled with it.

As I recall, the key caps are oversized with a 1" pitch instead of the usual 3/4"

I wondered whether something interesting could have been done with that.
“At the age of 35, after 6 years as a renunciant, he sat under a tree in Bodhgaya in North India and vowed not to get up until he had found the secret of our everlasting wandering from rebirth to rebirth. Sensing trouble, Mara, the demon of sense pleasures, sent a series of distractions his way, but the Buddha-to-be would not be stirred by such trivialities.
After 49 days, awakening came upon him. In one of the great moments in world history, he saw that all things are impermanent and ever changing. He saw how we suffer because we wish the world were otherwise. And through these insights he saw his suffering itself wander away. From that point forward he was the Buddha, which, like the term “Christ” is a title rather than a proper name.
For the next 45 years, the Buddha wandered the Indian subcontinent, turning the wheel of dharma and gathering monks and nuns into a crew of wandering beggars. Together they bore witness to what has been described as “History’s Most Dangerous Idea” – that  human beings can solve human problems on our own, without recourse to God or divine revelation.”

Haha yeah I put it for sale for $35, don’t even care how much it would bring. If anyone offers I’ll probably just go with them. Came pretty cheap anyway XD
