The Casio Loopy (Japanese: ルーピー, Hepburn: Rūpī), subtitled My Seal Computer SV-100, is a 32-bit home video game console. Released exclusively in Japan in October 1995,[1] it was unique in that the marketing for it was completely targeted to female gamers.

The Loopy includes a built-in thermal color printer that can be used to create stickers from game screenshots. An optional accessory, called Magical Shop (マジカルショップ, Majikaru Shoppu), is a video capture device to obtain images from VCRs and DVD players. Users may add text to these images and make stickers. Including Magical Shop's own built-in software, the Loopy game library contains 11 titles. The Loopy features one controller port for use with a standard game controller or with a mouse (sold separately). Developer Kenji Terada worked on Loopy Town no Oheya ga Hoshii!.

Casio dropped the support of the console in 1996, only one year after its release.
