Reminiscing Speak and Spell

fun, geekeryI AM AComment

Every Sunday, the Design Museum in London hosts #FontSunday on Twitter for font lovers to have a good discussion about fonts. The themes are different every week.

Recently the theme was on Electronic Display Fonts. This reminded us of one of our favourite toys from our childhood the “Speak & Spell”. It was our favourite accessory that we will always carry on our arms ( more than we would with a handbag ).

So glad to have found a Speak and Spell emulator online, and it has the same electronic synthesised voice. It’s so cool. The emulator is developed by Jake Smith, based on the original iconic toy developed by Texas Instrument. Try it yourself and play this retro toy Speak and Spell toy online.

P.S. This emulator seems to only work on Safari.

We love sweetheart candies. The iconic love heart candies with super sweet lovey dovey messages printed on pastel colour shades sweets. We love them so much we’ve created a pencil set inspired by them. With this Candy Heart Generator, you can create your own range of sweetheart candies with your own terms of endearment. Type in your own message, pick a candy heart shade, download the digital version of your treat, and add them to your emails, WhatsApp or text messages and send your own version of these sweets to your loved ones. Our personalised ones would definitely have to include pencils, just because. Totes dentists approved!

P.S. This February 14th, Valentine’s day, there will be a lack of these classic American sweetheart candies. This over 153 year old sweetie, founded since 1866 by US sweet company NECCO is currently under a change of hands of the company. Hence digital versions of these classic conversation heart sweeties are perfect for your sweet nothings. For the British, we have the LOVE HEARTS by sweet company Swizzels - sweet!

After all, the British is well known for apologising.
