Texas Instruments introduced with the Computer Fun a perfect combination of their superb speech synthesizer technology known from products like the Super Speak & Spell and the appearance of a small notebook.
The small graphics screen, the arrow keys and the function keys let you play one of 12 different preprogrammed games.
• Letter Play: Letter recogintion and keyboard layout
• Number Play: Number recognition and counting skills.
• Creature Creation: Creativity and imagination.
The toy is intended for players ages 4 to 8.
In other countries like United Kingdom the Computer Fun got not only other voices, even the keyboard layout changed. Don't miss the German Computer Fun.
Later a similar product was sold with the Mouse Computer.
