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.

Cartridges for the Sega Pico are called Storyware and are book-shaped. 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 a stylus and buttons. 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 it was rated by the ESRB.
