Back in 1932, Coleco was originally founded by a russian immigrant named Maurice Greenburg in New York state in the United States. It was actually a leather supply company that sold material to shoemakers. In the 1960s, Greenburg, through the help of his oldest son Leonard, switched to manufacturing plastic molds and plastic swimming pools. After becoming successful in the pool industry, he sold his original leather business to Lomart to focus on other industries. His younger son Arnold Greenburg who was a lawyer joined the family business and became the CEO of Coleco in 1975. Arnold wanted to compete in the emerging video game industry and developed the Telstar video game console which featured a home tennis video game. The success of this console motivated Coleo to develop new games and recruit talent from rival video game companies, leading to the creation of a home game console which allowed consumers to play different arcade games. In 1981, Coleco began its development of this system, releasing ColecoVision a year later with popular titles from third-party game developers such as Donkey Kong, Burger time, and Space Invaders.

Classic ColecoVision "Your Vision is Our Vision" TV commercial advertisement for their game console in 1982. Notice how they exaggerate the quality of the graphics by adding expensive 3D special effects to this ad.
