I love novelty phones but have always been put off by their expensive price tag! On a trip to Blackpool we were saving up tickets in Coral Island and when we were looking at the things we could cash them in for i spotted this Hello Kitty phone and immediately wanted it. Luckily we had enough tickets for that and a couple of little toys for my daughter!!
The Hello Kitty Phone is a large novelty phone, it features the Hello Kitty cat standing on a cloud. The kitty is dressed in the normal pink dress and has the large pink bow on her head and she also has fairy wings and is carrying a little wand with a love heart end. It is a corded phone and the handset is a really good size, the display on the reverse of the handset shows the time and how long you have been on the phone. The numbers on the other side of the handset are all pink to correspond with the theme of the phone and they are quite small but i don't think they are too small to cause a problem for anyone to press.
When the phone rings kitty's wings flash red which is a lovely feature of the phone, its nice when the phone rings in the dark and there's the flashing against the darkness - it isn't a bright flashing like a strobe light, its a subtle flash i would say.
This phone can run off mains electric or just batteries whichever is ideal for you, i personally have it plugged in at the mains so i don't forget to change the batteries! The size of the phone is approx 9" tall and 10" wide so if you were to think about buying one of them then definately think about space!
I would say the phone is definately aimed at us females and though the manufacturer states its for the young end of the market, i'm 30 and i love it!! You can find this phone on amazon for £35.99 which is a bargain as i have seen it for sale for £50.00 and above!
I really like my funky novelty phone, its always a talking point when i have visitors and its something i'd always wanted so i am very happy to finally have one!! Although my daughter has decided we have to get a Mickey Mouse one so i guess its saving up time for me!!!
