Fisher Price Chatter Phone
Advantages: cheap, well made, simple, iconic
Disadvantages: babies may find it a bit boring compared to toys with lights and music
The Fisher Price Chatterphone is a modern classic. I had one when I was a child as did my husband and they were certainly favourites of ours. I was therefore really pleased when my mum bought one for my 10 month old son for Christmas. She had seen them on offer in one of the supermarkets before Christmas and couldn't resist the chance to get him something that brought back so many happy memories of mine and my brothers childhood.
The Chatterphone's popularity has recently soared thanks to it's appearance in the Toy Story 3 film which has given it a new lease of life. The toy itself is very simple. It comprises a moulded plastic body with a dial that rings when spun around, and a receiver attached by a piece of elastic. The phone can be pulled along by a string at the front which makes the eyes of the phone go up and down.
It is aimed at babies over 12 months, however, my 10 month old loves it and although he is probably not yet benefitting from all of its features at the moment, he enjoys sucking the receiver!
It seems strange that the phone remains so popular despite the fact that it bears no resemblance to the modern telephone, however, I am sure that in the future my baby will enjoy pretending to phone his friends on it just as much as I, and thousands of children before him, have done!
At such a low price, you can't go wrong. Babies will have enjoyment from this toy for a long time.
Summary: A modern classic to be enjoyed by all babies
