Platform(s)Game Boy Color

Kirby Family was a program developed by HAL Laboratory. It was a collection of 32 pre-set patterns forming the like of characters from the Kirby series, which, when transmitted by the Game Boy Color to a special embroidery machine manufactured by Jaguar, the pattern selected is reproduced on cloth. It was the spiritual successor of Mario Family, a Japan-only Game Boy Color game that operated exactly the same way.

The program was showcased along with the embroidery machines at Nintendo Space World 2001, but the plans to retail it outside of the event for 6,800 yen on September 10, 2001 were scrapped.


  • The images on Kirby Family's title screen, as well as the embroidery patterns in the game, are all largely based on the artwork from Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards.
