Chime Phone


Pop Up Chime Phone

Before there were kids running around with the latest mobile phone, there was kids running around with, well, chime phones.

When their 13 year old daughers were sitting on the real phone for hours, parents probably regretted buying their kids this fun toy when they were a little 'un.

Truly a way to get kids hooked on the phone, this toy could spell out endless hours of fun as a doll pops up out of the phone when '0' is pressed for the operator. Pretty nifty eh? But watch out for the recalled phones where the operator deviously puts you through to a 1800 number...
