This wonderful educational toy is not related to Texas Instruments. They are included for comparison only with the rare MATH MAGIC and its sibling WIZ-A-TRON.

The same electronic was used in the wonderful Monkey See sold by Radio Shack and the Santron 400.

Later it was replaced with a QuizKid sporting a LED-display.
