    Holy Crap!

    My sister had the calculator that is this group's logo!  Such cool memories!  My speak and spell was my favorite present of all my childhood.  I spend hours on that thing!

    Not All Electronic But Fun Nonetheless

    This is still by far one of the best Christmas gifts I ever got.  I was entertained for months.  The battery life was horrible.  It took 4 C batteries and the a/c adapter eventually broke.  Finally the screen just stopped working.  Sad sad day. ...

    Anyone Remember...

    "Fabulous Fred"? I still have this toy at my Mom's place.  It has great sentimental value to me, since it was an infamous impulse buy from my parents to me during the holiday season one year!
