The most awesome thing about the 70's See and Say was if you pulled the string and then put it face down on the floor, the whole thing would revolve while talking in a muffled voice into the carpet. Cracked my 2 sisters and me up, every time. Poor mom.

Indeed - big difference because of technology in just 3 decades. I wonder how will it look like 20-30 years from now.

In 20-30 yrs from now, maybe we'll just "beam" a real cow, holograph-style, into our living room to hear what sound it makes.

I bought the Speak, Piggy! app after seeing your post. I love it.
