Talking Whiz Kid - 1986

Posted By: Krysti on Jul 04, 2013

Talking Whiz Kid hit Christmas trees everywhere in 1986 with a robust library of games. Each game was a lil flimsy poster board card with a bar code on it and a picture describing the game in a silly manner. Games usually included educational titles but some of them could have passed for more leisure than learning. The machine had extras like expansion packs which would connect to the side of the machine and grant you access to more cards to put in an play. Considering it's pre-computer popularity it was a great device and had a laptop look and feel to it. If one had ever been accustomed to QWERTY early on as a child, this keyboard would drive you nuts as it was in alphabetical order and also featured musical notes (so, la, ti, do, re, mi, fa). Still an excellent machine for the budding young learner at a much less expensive price tag than an actual laptop and lots of fun, very durable. You can find these on eBay for not a lot of money.
