Do you remember those telephone sets for kids?
They usually came as a pair so that a connection could be made between two rooms. I must say that I adored our own phone set, at least the one I can recall. It was grey with white dials I think. I loved the way the dials slowly went back to the start after dialling!
Our phones were rigged up between two floors with the long cable going up the stairs. My Mum would ring up and say tea was ready and my Dad would call to say Thunderbirds was on or maybe Scooby Do! I'm pretty sure that besides a ring tone a small light lit up as well when someone phoned.
I've no idea of the quality of the call but I could definately hear voices!
Great fun but I wonder if such a simple idea has had its day. Today's kids all have mobiles, Can you imagine if we'd wandered round with one of our toy dial phones in the Sixties and took it shopping with Mum! ha ha
Did you have toy phones or maybe walkie talkies set up at home readers?
