Touch & Tell

Touch and Tell Electronic 80's Toy

The Touch and Tell (Texas Instruments) was like the long lost (and lesser) cousin to the Speak and Spell.  It was aimed at 2 to 5 year olds and came with big, interchangeable, two-sided touch pad sheets and interchangeable cartridges for each sheet.  Each sheet taught a different subject (alphabet fun, number fun, colors, shapes, etc.).  A computerized voice would tell the user what buttons to push.  The second generation of the Touch and Tell was called the Teddy Touch and Tell.  It was shaped like a bear and continued teaching kids the alphabet, recognizing numbers, colors, animals, etc.
