It was a yellow genie with an orange turban on his head. It was similar to speak and spell, but in the shape of a genie. It had cards that you slide into the front and it was a learning "computer". I loved it much more than speak and spell! I have searched eBay for them and can't find one. I know it was called Genie though.

I had this as a child when I was 3, my mom bought it for me. My genie taught me how to spell, I loved this toy.

I had Genie when I was a kid too. My mom told me that I liked it because it had all kinds of spinning things on it and it kept me busy. I would just keep right on spinning the things that spun and it used to driver her crazy.

Well I left the original post about Genie. I still have not been able to locate one on eBay! They must be very rare. My cousin still has hers new in the box!! Has anyone seen one of these for sell. I also had the crib toy with the barbar shop spinny thing! It was at my grandma's house and we never even put it on a crib.:)

I had this when I was very little, I am surprised I remember it. I'm 31 and I must have only been 2 or so when I had it. I used to love pushing the red button & hear it ding.

Wow...I'm 28. I don't think I played with that thing since I was like three. How do I still remember all of the sounds and where everything was. There was something on the left that you pushed and a yellow thing would go up and down the clear plastic chute. I remember trying to figure out as a kid, why the turtle always beat the rabbit. Guess I hadn't heard the story yet. I can remember the sounds that they made...OMG this is freaky. lol I'm a grown man seriously sitting here getting teary eyed. WOW.

I actually still have the Genie computer in my attic. I'm going to go fish it out. I don't know if it works still I probably left a battery in it and ruined it I'm guessing. I've been searching like crazy for it online. I saw speak'n'spell on Toy Hunter and it made me think of this!
