Fisher-Price made its iconic toy phone an actual phone for some reason

Yes, the mad lads made a working one.

If you’ve ever picked up your kid’s Fisher-Price Chatter toy telephone in a drunken stupor and had a conversation at 2 AM, you probably wished there was someone on the other end of the line.

Well, now you’re in luck because Fisher-Price made a special, Bluetooth-equipped version of the Chatter for its 60th birthday.

Think of the $60 not-quite-a-toy-but-really-a-toy telephone as a fancy, nostalgic headset for your smartphone. It’s got a 15ft Bluetooth range, connects to your iPhone or Android device, and lets you take phone calls.

It’s battery-powered, with an internal rechargeable battery that powers the Chatter for nine hours before you need to plug it back in.

It’s the perfect Christmas gift for the executive that has everything already. I mean, it’s exactly the Chatter we all grew up in our homes, just actually working for the modern age.

Use it to talk to grandma, or to your significant other, or any other times you want. Heck, even spam calls are going to raise a smile on your face when you pick up that bright red earpiece, not to mention the fun of slamming it back down on the googly-eyed receiver.

And yes, you can use it as a speakerphone so you don’t have to pick up the earpiece. Just in case you were worried about looking silly. Grab one from Best Buy for $60 and relive your childhood.
