If you had one of these, then you were one step ahead of those
of us who suffered the trip to Grandma's with just our Little
Professor calculators and Merlin. The Speak and Spell
would allow the proud owner to manually type out words that were spoken by
the computer, and it would also repeat words that were typed in by the
proud owner. Don't forget, it was the Speak and Spell that
Elliot and E.T. used. Check out the Speak N Spell
commercial below starring Bill Cosby.
