Not sure why, but I woke up this morning thinking of this.
It's the Speak & Spell from Texas Instruments.
Yes, it's from the late seventies
I remember sitting on the kitchen floor trying to spell every single word.
Then I remember this too.
Simon, by Milton Bradley
I used to be really good at it.
I bet I'm not anymore. I've lost a few brain cells since then!
Merlin, by Parker Brothers.
An electronic Tic Tac Toe game.
Shortly after Christmas of my third grade year, I took this to show and tell.
I was so proud of it.
I thought I was so cool having one of these.
I don't think kids of today would even spend more than five seconds with any of these games, but I would spend hours, weeks, even months playing with them.
Until next time,
