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.
The difference in characterization of crime and who commits it skews what criminality looks like demographically. "What we're seeing so far is very similar to the process that we see with Islamic violent Jihad radicalization," said former FBI Assistant Director Frank Figliuzzi, "This wanting to belong to a cause greater than yourself, wanting to get affirmation from a group who may not even know who you are or ever met you. And then feeling like you're part of this deployment, this cause. You heard him say on the clip 'It's my job to protect this.'
No, it's not your job. But you think it is. And video last night shows him walking around roaming around with the assault rifle not really doing much of protecting anything." Figliuzzi made it clear that calling these characters "troubled" is a misnomer. "I would assert," Figliuzzi continued. "that it's time we stopped using the word ‘troubled’ with regard to white young people who act out like this and start thinking about the radicalized term that we used when people of color or people of Islamic faith act out like this. This is a radicalization process that's happening. It happened with the El Paso shooter in Texas. We kept hearing he was troubled. No, he was radicalized. And it's happening online."

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
