Small toddlers use the Listen & Learn toy like a small ball. Due to the flats on each side the toy will find a stable position and play a sound associated to the Farm Animal on top of the ball. The Listen & Learn uses again Texas Instruments speech technology introduced with the Speak & Spell.
Each year another Listen & Learn theme appeared shortly before Christmas:
|1989: Farm Animals|
|1990: Nursery Rhymes|
|1991: Sounds we Hear|
|1992: Sounds of Christmas|
The toy is intended for toddlers ages 6 to 36 month.
This Listen & Learn was available with a lot of different voices:
|France: La Balle Magique|
|Spain: La Bola Mágica|
Other toys for toddlers are the Discovery Depot, Peek-A-Boo Zoo, Magic Clown and the Magic Sorter.
