70s telephone intercom phones [sold]

Telefon children's intercom toy telphones, 1970sTelefon children’s telephone toy
made in Germany, c.1970s

How cute are these push button intercom phones! A friend of mine who received them as a birthday present in the 70s [his was garish blue and white] said that his mother would ‘call’ him in his bedroom to tell him his dinner was ready! How cute!

This set has never been used, and comes in its original box. They are made ‘for ages 3 and up’, have 10m [33ft] of wire to allow use in different rooms, and take two 9V batteries. This is the pre-wireless age, peoples!

A perfect [nostalgic] Christmas present for someone 3 and up!

For sale: $AU75

  1. We had some with a dial plate instead of buttons. They were red. One winter we had a lot of snow (such winters don’t exist any more) and built a snow house in the garden by creating some big snow balls (snow man type), putting them together and making a cave inside. We then established a phone line from the snow house to the living room. In the age of mobile phones, you cannot imagine again that kind of fun.
