Looking for the name of an Electronic Math Game
« on: Tuesday 01 October 2013, 07:22 am »
I remember back when I was in 3rd grade in 1994-1995 when I was put in one classroom the teacher had this little electronic math game.
It plugs into an outlet. I don't remember if it was also battery operated or not.
It was either a light gray color, light tan, or off-white. What year this game could have come out I don't know. It probably had been there for a few years. The buttons always reminded me of the buttons on the old vintage telephones from the 1960-1970s. The small square gray buttons.
It was round like a cereal bowl. Bigger around the top and a little smaller and flat on the bottom. The power switch was on the bottom I think or the side. It had subtraction, addition, multiplication, and division problems. You got to choose whichever one you wanted. It had a small screen the numbers lit up green. The screen was about as wide as a pencil and 1 1/2 to 2 inches long.
I tried to explain it as best as I can.
I've tried looking for it myself but have had no luck. I didn't get to play with it much because I was then moved to the other classroom. I guess the school messed up and put me in the wrong classroom so they moved me within the first few days of school so I only got to play it once or twice and never got to see it again. I wish I could have remembered what it was. I loved playing with it and always wanted to know what it was. I have never forgotten it. I always struggled with math and it was one math game I enjoyed.
I have googled it many times and had no luck.
Would anyone know what it is or can someone please help me figure it out?

Thank You.

I really have no idea when it comes to educational toys like that, but I'm just going to throw this one out there... was is maybe a VTech Pre-Computer 1000?
