Testing out my ZX Spectrums this afternoon, got both my girls interested and the eldest one playing.

Excellent!

We had the daughter of one of the RetroGamers meetup guys very keen on the Spectrum too. She didn't want to leave!

Great machine

My daughter is very much into new gaming stuff but does have a weakness for the Commodore 64. Recently though she has taken up programming on my 128k Spectrum and is really enjoying that.

Hi, that's great! I used to remembered ZX Spectrums for its rubber keyboard and distinctive rainbow motif. Am I correct that It was originally released on April 1982? Well, perhaps my daughters would also love that game.

I never played with a Spectrum in the day. When I eventually got one (about 2007) I was surprised at the minimal design (not even a off switch). However, I guess that's what made it affordable for families to buy, and for kids to play with. There is no doubting its place in history.
