Remember the classic toy phone Fisher-Price made that looks like a car with a face on it? They came out in 1961, and every kid had one in the ’80s and ’90s too, usually a hand-me-down.
Well, the newest version just got a major upgrade. It can now make REAL phone calls. Fisher-Price is selling a new Bluetooth version of it that looks like the classic toy, but pairs with your smartphone. So you or your kids can use it to make actual phone calls.
It’s still got the classic rotary dial that spins around, so, have fun teaching your kids what THAT’S all about. And a man’s voice says each digit out loud when you dial, so you can learn your numbers.
They cost $60, and you can only get them at Best Buy. They’re not on sale yet, but you can pre-order one on their website.
Fisher-Price is still selling the normal, non-Bluetooth kids’ version for $10. But with that one, you’ll have to go back to just pretending you’re on the phone.
(Here’s a photo, and an epic, iPhone-style video Fisher-Price posted on Twitter.)
