This is the handheld talking video game that hones a child's spelling skills and builds their vocabulary with an interactive spelling bee. Similar to the National Spelling Bee, the 2 1/2" color touchscreen displays a contestant and judges and the device speaks a word and players spell their response using the touchscreen keyboard. Players can request to have a word used in a sentence, defined, repeated, or its origin explained and a judge responds in a clear, human voice. Over 12,000 words, definitions, and sentences are drawn from the Merriam-Webster and New Oxford dictionaries and users can choose three levels of difficulty from the rudimentary (stipulation and donation) to the abstruse (amalgamate and miasma). The cell phone sized device stores easily in a pocket and supports up to six players. Other game modes include a game show, hangman, and word jumble. Requires three AAA batteries. Ages 8 and up. 4" L x 2 1/4" W x 1" D. (3 1/2 oz.)
