Speak & Spell and Speak & Maths Game

Added by Antonella Bamford from Luton, Beds.

One of the first childrens handheld electronic devices with a visual display to use interchangeable game cartridges.

The toy was originally developed as a learning tool to help young children learn to spell and pronounce over 200 words.

Antonella owned these games as a child, but lost them over time. She
wanted her own children to experience them too. After scouring the internet and carboot sales, she found these working examples.

Her children regularly use them today.
