If you're a techie of a certain age you'll have fond memories of the Speak & Spell. The Texas Instruments toy's quirky speech synthesis may be quaint by modern standards, but it sounded like magic back in the 80's. You'll be glad to hear it's back!  Introducing a revived Speak & Spell... it includes all the familiar games, that simple segmented display (albeit one based on modern LCDs), that orange-and-yellow design, and, of course, that signature voice. However, there is one important change you'll have to consider: The TMS1000 chip inside the original Speak & Spell synthesized voices on the fly both out of novelty and because of storage limitations from 1978-era technology -- it could only handle roughly 200 words. The 2019 model won't have those limitations, and has 5 play modes with multiple challenge levels.

Includes 3 AA batteries.
