Come a bit closer. I have a secret to tell you. You know those ring-dial phones you get for toddlers? I just love love love playing with them. There's simply nothing more soothing, for some strange reason, than turning that dial. The Fisher Price Toy Story 3 Talking Chatter Telephone is onsale through the Argos eBay outlet for £11.98 including delivery.
Now, one of the things that made Toy Story such a great series of movies, for me at least, was the use of real toys. Like Barbie, and I especially liked the way they even got the sound of her moving just right. Took me right back to my childhood! The telephone in the third movie is also based on a classic toy, unsurprisingly from Fisher Price. And you can still buy this one if you want, rather than the Toy Story one. It is available at Argos for £5.34 including delivery, if you want.
The Toy Story 3 version is bigger, and has more features, hence the heftier price tag. You can use the dial to 'call' Woody or Buzz Lightyear for a chat, listen to the chatter telephone ring to attract your attention or use the telephone to hear about how to get by the monkey and out of the day care centre.
As the talking chatter phone is pushed along it makes a squeaking sound and the eyes move up and down. Batteries required and (sadly) not included - you'll need 3 x AA. It is suitable for ages 2 years and over.
