    Comments about Learning Resources Pretend & Play® Teaching Telephone®:

    I have used this toy for many years. It is an extremely useful toy to help any child learn telephone numbers of family members, but I find it especially useful for blind children. The auditory reward of hearing a loved one's voice when the telephone number is dialed correctly is immense.

    I purchased this phone for my four-year old grandson who is autistic. It is an excellent teaching tool and he thinks it is fun. I highly recommend it.
