You are right, this is definite no electronic calculator. This funny game demonstrates the possibilities of the speech technology introduced with the Speak & Spell and later enhanced with the Super Speak & Spell.
The Touch & Talkies game uses the names of some Walt Disney figures to teach numbers, clothes, faces and some other simple things.
A slightly modifies housing was used on the musical edition "Silly Soundstage", "Crazy Clubhouse" and the "Shuttle Buddies".
The speech synthesizer used in this game and its sibbling Teddy Touch & Tell dated 1993 is from much better quality compared to the original Speak & Spell.
