It first went to market in the early sixties. Its a surreal telephone does everything a small child wants – it moves, makes a noise as it is pulled along and rings as the numbers are dialled as well as fluttering its eyes. The original version was made of wood, with polyethylene receiver and cord.
The Chatter Telephone is a popular pull toy for children one to three years old. Introduced by the Fisher-Price company as the “Talk Back Phone” for infants and children, the Chatter Telephone is a roll along pull toy. It has a smiling face, and when the toy is pulled, it makes a chattering sound and the eyes move up and down.
