"Leapfrog," eat your heart out!

Speak & Spell

Ok, I must say, I miss my speak and spell! I loved that thing! Even after the raised buttons kinda broke and I had to push the button really hard and kinda wiggle my finger around for it to register. I distinctly remember learning how to spell "neighbour" on my speak and spell. How weird is that?

I ask you, where are the quality toys like that these days?

What was your favourite toy of the Eighties?

for a funny twist on speak and spell go to www.danecook.com and listen to the audio clip called evil toy, the clips start playing automatically but may take a bit to get to evil toy. Anyways he does great stand up.
