I had a Speak-n-Spell and a Speak-n-Math when I was young, but they were
sold in a garage sale. Doh!

I can still remember the sound one of them saying something "is in wrong
place" (I think) and the sound of the Speak-n-Spell echoing the alphabet.

Strange, I've always been extremely skilled at both math and English. I
wonder if it was helped early on by my use of those toys. If I'm ever
tricked into or forced to have kids of my own, they will have both a
-Spell and a -Math.
