What is Gocco? For those of you that don't know Gocco (プリントゴッコ Purinto Gokko, Print Gocco) is a self-contained compact color printing system invented in 1977 by Noboru Hayama.

Gocco became immensely popular in Japan and it is estimated that one-third of Japanese households own a Print Gocco system. The name Print Gocco is derived from the Japanese word gokko (ごっこ), loosely translated as make-believe play.
