    Sinaloa in use for a handheld game from the Animest series, made by Japanese toy manufacturer Popy (ポピー) in 1982. Arale Norimaki (則巻アラレ) is the protagonist of the Dr. Slump (Dr. スランプ) manga series set in Penguin Village (ペンギン村), created by Akira Toriyama.

    The Animest logo as well as “Popy Electronics Game” and “Dr. Slump Arale” are in Amelia. The control labels use a thin wide sans of unknown origin.
