Speak & Spell is back and it’s just like you remember!
One of the earliest computerized learning systems from the 70s and 80s, Speak & Spell was the first educational toy designed to help children learn to spell over 200 commonly misspelled words using a speech synthesizer.
Now, a whole new generation can enjoy this classic toy with friends and family for years to come.
With multiple play modes and challenge levels, kids will have fun and learn at the same time!
