If I’d been paid minimum wage for the hours I spent playing with my Speak & Spell as a kid, I could probably retire now. Seriously: This toy kept me busy and out of trouble for a large chunk of my childhood.
Because God loves the children of the ’80s, someone has created an online Speak & Spell simulator. You can play with it here.
There’s an even better version here. The word list is lower-level, and the typeface isn’t authentic, but there are more features, and it plays more like the original.
