Nothing else than a Touch & Tell with German voices stored in the Speech-ROM.
This educational toy was rated by Texas Instruments for childrens aged between 3 and 6 years compared to the US rating between 2 and 5 years.
The next evolution step is the Lesefreund introducing two position sensitive keyboards in a foldable housing to accept small booklets.
Texas Instruments stopped the development of this educational line in 1993 with the cute Teddy, der sprechende Baer.
The Tipp & Sprich stores more voices that any other Touch & Tell variation in its internal memory. We noticed the following overlay panels: a,b,c,d,2a,2b,2c,2d,3a,3b,3c,3d,4a,4b.
