Blip was at the time a simulation of tennis,ping-pong and the early Pong video game made by Atari. You can play against the "computer" or two opponents can play each other. Blip was a "must have" holiday gift for the 1977 as mentioned in Wikipedia.

"Blip is the TV type game that you can take anywhere. It's player against player when you BLIP it with a friend. Or player versus machine is you play against BLIP itself.
Activate the mechanical power source by winding BLIP's timer.
Now, press the serve button and watch the light emitting diode (L.E.D.) come at you. But don't watch it too long. To win, you hand must be quicker than the BLIP. quickly press one of the numbered BLIP buttons to send the L.E.D. back where it came from. If your opponent misses, it's score one for you on the automatic digital scoreboard.
Take BLIP anywhere, On boats, trains, cars, rocketships and planes.
When you play with BLIP you get carried away. And so does BLIP.
Requires 2 "AA" batteries, not included".

Of course this doesn't really require batteries.
Enjoy the nostalgia!

One of the best video games ever!

This has to be the best video game that was ever made. With the 2 player mode this game has aged better than any other video game ever will! Definitely worth buying! If you like this I’d recommend buying a real Tomy Blip game online.

Enjoy this!

Very true to the hand-held version. This is esp. good as a two-player game. The computer opponent is a bit too challenging as it nearly never makes an error, and so I took a star off for that. Otherwise, a good game to pass the time!

Fun but wish i hadnt paid for it

Got this bc my mom told me about the real game and i was curious. It works great, she says it even has authentic sound effects. it was fun for the first ten minutes, i just don't see myself wanting to play it that much.
