This review is from: Fisher-Price Brilliant Basics Friendly Flip Phone (6 Months +) (Baby Product)
My 15-month old son received this phone as a gift when he was 6 months old. He didn't use it much back at 6 months, but steadily his interest in it grew. He always prefers to play with my cell phone, but if I spend 30 seconds or so talking on this toy one, he'll gladly take it for a little while.
It's not the kind of toy that can amuse a child for very long, maybe 5 minutes tops (which is why I knock it down 1 star), and it really doesn't teach much, but the compact size is perfect for throwing in your bag/stroller with a few other small toys for those moments when you need to pull out something to distract your child.
As others state, the greetings are nice, very clear. Every button makes a sound, and the music is both short and pleasant to the ear. I often find Fisher Price toys very poorly/cheaply made, but this one is really quite good. It's been dropped on our hardwood floors many times, and it still works almost perfectly (the music is slightly out of tune now, probably because of the internal battery wearing down).
