I think that's a different console.  I thnk the Activision TVPad is a "joypad" style controller with D-pads.

these are pretty hard to sort out.

That one with D-pads says "Toymax" on the bottom instead of Jakks.  But it still has that same "TV Games" logo on it, which usually appears on Jakks games.  To make matters more confusing, There is also another Activision plug & play that I've seen at a flea market.

@S.BAZ: It is confusing indeed! The problem is that there are 2 categories for one and the same device: Jakks Pacific Activision TV-Pad and Joystick both refer to the same thing! X-( The reason why it's the same is that there's only one device with those 10 games in it that's also called a Jakks Pacific. Strictly speaking it's neither TV-Pad nor joystick. It's a console! Unfortunately both categories are in use by a small number of users. All of them have the same Jakks it appears. The 2 categories would need to be joined to one! Maybe Serious can do this when he is less busy? I currently compete with Larquey on a couple of scores as he also submitted under TV-Pad. I suggest I will continue to use the chosen category. I may use the other in case users went there (eg Pitfall has a single score by Larquey under joystick). Does that make sense?

@RetroRob:

I see.  I have the double-Dpad plug-n-play one, so I'll hook it up & see if it has the same games. 

Yeah, makes sense!  These look like the same console and should be merged.
