Blast from the Past

WOW – mom got all sentimental on this toy from her childhood.  The Little Professor was released in June 1976 from Texas Instruments.  It was marketed as the first electronic educational toy.  I think this is where mom found her fondness of math and to these day loves numbers.  So many people hate math but it’s really in the way it is presented.  I think by having fun with the Little Professor, mom started off with a fondness of math.   She got that far away look in her eyes and reminisced about being 7 and walking around the house ‘calculating’.  She got pretty good at it too!

I checked this item out on ebay as well.  It runs from around $25.00 and up.  Not a good turn around knowing that when it first came out in 1976, the price was $20.00.

Daddy never had one growing up – maybe that explains his dislike for math.  I wonder if it’s too late for this little piggy to start using it?

Did you have a Little Professor?  Do tell.
