Community Playthings Phone Will Require Much Explanation

My first thought when I saw this vintage Community Playthings maple phone appear on eBay was, "Yow, better watch that phone cord doesn't wrap around the youngster's little neck."

But then I realized, it'll take so much to explain phone cords, land lines, and dialers, that you'll have to play with the kid anyway.

i was thinking the same thing- about if kids now-days knew what phones with cords were for. when my in-laws bought my son a toy phone that you call different characters, i wasn't sure if he even knew what it was since we rarely ever use a land line-usually just our cell phones. i think eventually he started to get the idea, but it made me realize how much times have changed from when i was a kid-phones with cords are so outdated, for the most part.
