History
Very little known on this console. The console is made by M&D, a toy company known to produce various toys, including handheld games. The first successful handheld line produced by M&D, called the Dream Dragon, was based on the popular Chinese franchise Roco Kingdom.  The handheld introduces features of physical trading card and badges that could be used in games. The cards and badges were sold in booster pack and had different effect on the game. M&D continued to release different handheld based on this concept, but it’s not until the release of the Monon color that the handheld would have interchangeable cartridges.

Release
The Monon Color was well received and manage to spawn various licensed games such as Roco Kingdom, Marvel and Dragon Ball. Some games, through special cartridges, support the usage of cards and badges, and trading packs were sold to this end. The cards were specific to one game, but in some instance, could work with other M&D handhelds such as the Dream Dragon.

A second model of the console was released with a rechargeable battery instead of 3 AA batteries.

Eventually, all games  in boxes were re-released in the blister pack format.
