Hi,

I got 23month old son who love to play with mobile phone, I tried to give him a toy mobile phone, but couldn't get his attention.

I saw both Telcom and Vodafone retailer displays mobile phone models which looks and feel very real, is there anyway to get them?

Cheers

Shin

Ask the retailers, we used to give away old (usually very wrecked) ones when we were finished with them to people in your exact situation.

Please be aware that such phones are made as cheap as possible, and not to any standards like toys are. Often the more expensive parts of the real phone are replaced with tiny peices of plastic etc.

I am more comfortable with my 15 month old having a real phone (with no battery of course) due to the sturdier construction. He has a Sanyo 8100. (And its actually connected on prepay LOL, though it never gets used).

(Still not ideal though).

I am not preaching, I am just making sure you are informed :)

The difference between boys and girls... my 24 m.o. daughter uses ANYTHING remotely phone-shaped as a phone... remote control, box of batteries, etc... exquisite look of concentration, "hello? hello?"

Small parts and under 3's is not a good idea IMO

Please take the battery out. I don't recommend a kid chewing on one. And think about where that used phone's been, dip it in Purell first:)
