Texas Instruments introduced with the Talking Master Mouse Computer the first kids' computer with a real working mouse.
This Mouse Computer marketed in Germany looks very similar but uses a German voice. Please notice the unusual position of the "Z"-key. In France it was sold as L'Ordinateur Magique.
The screen of the Mouse Computer holds one of 10 activity cards. The 24 different activity choices offer a wide range of challange levels and include engaging topics such as
|• Next Letter
• Hidden Word
• Guess My Number
The toy is intended for players ages 4 and up.
The Mouse Computer is a perfect combination of TI's superb speech synthesizer technology known from products like the Super Speak & Spell and the appearance of a small notebook.
Don't miss the Computer Fun introduced already in 1988.
