The Sega Pico (Japanese: キッズコンピューター・ピコ Kids' Computer Pico) is an edutainment console developed by Sega.
The Pico used book-shaped cartridges known as Storyware. Each time a player turns the page of the cartridge, the screen changes to replicate the image in the book. The games are controlled by buttons and a stylus. The back page of each book features a drawing mode, where the player can insert stamps of characters from within the book. All released software for the Pico was rated by the ESRB.
In 2005, in Japan only it was succeeded by the Advanced Pico Beena. According to Sega Toys, the Beena is intended to be the upper-end model in the Pico series.
A Pikachu special edition Sega Pico comes bundled with Pokémon Advanced Generation: I've Begun Hiragana and Katakana!
- The Pico was the first Sega console to have a Nintendo-licensed game.
