Early electronic "learning" doohickey?

My friend from grade school was just profiled on Time.com. We met in 4th grade in 1979 over an electronic learning toy in class. It was white plastic, had a smoked plexiglass cover, spherical in shape but possibly on a pedestal. Help me identifiy it so I can remind him of it!
