We have that same Speak N Spell; T. sent it as a Christmas gift in 2008 or 2009, when he was both clearing out his house to move and worried about the state of his retirement portfolio (so re-gifting). It works ok, but isn't very understandable in the best of times. I think the truly terrible noises were mostly a result of failing batteries.

One of my major linguistic triumphs was beating my French host family's children at Trivial Pursuit in French, when I was 16. (The other was my ability to suss out that "asphalto jungolo" was asphalt jungle, when I'd been in Italy a month and never studied Italian, and the other American in the conversation was supposedly conversant.)

Did you not realize we have a piano now? It's a digital one. They're fairly affordable, and analog ones are quite cheap (the problem is moving them, especially to your house.) Unfortunately, Casper got mr. flea's hands, but she wants to play guitar.
