Speak & Spell is back and it’s just like you remember! One of the earliest computerized learning systems from the 70s and 80s, Speak & Spell was the first educational toy designed to help children learn to spell over 200 commonly misspelled words using a speech synthesizer. Now, a whole new generation can enjoy this classic toy with friends and family for years to come. With multiple play modes and challenge levels, kids will have fun and learn at the same time!
Spread cheer, kindness, and sunshine wherever kids go! This soft, furry Cheer Bear furry backpack is the sweetest, brightest, most — well — cheerful accessory ever!
The classic game inspired by the movie is BACK! Players go on a quest through the jungle, solving riddles, surviving events, and completing challenges. Press the electronic Green Dome and hear the beating drums of Jumanji! Look inside to see riddles and dangerous events appear for players to complete (e.g. The group must collectively name 15 different fruits before time runs out!) Race each other to be the first to reach the center of the jungle and yell “JUMANJI!” to win. If any player loses all their Life Tokens, then ALL players lose.
