Looking for story where a father brings home toy and a boy plays with it until he is transported to another planet when he reaches top level.
Sounds like a story by S.C. Sykes. The Cyphertone. Boy receives a Simon like toy for Christmas. As he practices and gets better at the game his grades improve and the father notes the child is becoming "different". The boy tells him not to worry and that he goes "somewhere else" to learn new things. When the boy completes the top level of the game he is transported to an unknown place.
Actually, if memory serves, it was an episode of an anthology series on A & E called "Short Stories" (or "Shortstories"). The episode was called "Somewhere Else". I have a very crappy copy on VHS.
It starred Jon Devries, Justin Lerer, Nancy Weems and Crocker Nevin.
Screenplay by Mark Slater based on a story by S.C. Sykes
