With the five modes, kids will think they are playing, while parents know they are learning. Modes include Spell mode, Mystery Word mode, Say It mode, Secret Code mode, and Letter mode.
The Spell mode requires kids to spell the word after hearing the automated voice say it. In the Mystery mode, kids figure out the word by guessing the letters. Say It mode asks kids to pronounce and spell the word as it appears on the screen. In Secret Code mode, kids enter a word, and the console will generate a secret code. Finally, in Letter mode, kids will hear the letter pronounced to reinforce audio and visual learning. There are multiple challenge modes, as well, to keep things interesting as kids learn.
All in all, this Speak & Spell is perfect for grown-ups who are looking for a fun, educational toy to help kids ages 7 and up with spelling, or for fans or collectors looking to share this classic with a new generation!
