This Leap Frog Turbo Phonics Battery Operated Electronic Portable Learning toy is in VERY GOOD working condition. Includes 3AA batteries !! There are no instructions ..... but below is an overview on how the toy works !!!
Between the two angled handles is a 1 1/2” square LCD screen, centered in a blue oval. Above and below the oval are the 26 letters of the alphabet, in raised capital print.
A circular yellow speaker is located on the top of the center console and a blue volume switch (low/high) is on the right hand side underneath the console. To the left of the volume switch is a headphone jack in case even low volume is too high for the surrounding conditions. The Turbo Phonics will shut off automatically if not played with for a short period of time. It runs on 3 AA batteries that are included.
Now for those handlebars… The smooth blue handle on the right has a large yellow button on the end called the “Go button.” You push this to start the music. On the back of the right handle is a ridged rectangular-shaped yellow button called the “Beat Bar.” This serves as a drumstick during the Jammin’ mode.
The knobby blue handle on the left turns like the accelerator handle of a motorcycle. This is called the “Letter Selector Handle” and it’s used to scroll through the alphabet. Turing the handle towards you goes backward in the alphabet and turning the handle away progress forward through the alphabet. The letters being scrolled appear on the bottom half on the LCD screen. You can scroll slowly one letter at a time by turning the handle briefly and then moving back to neutral. Holding the handle in the turned position will result in rapid scrolling through the alphabet.
