Editor's Notes

October 30, 2019:

You’ll help keep your youngster's juice- and Cheerio-encrusted little fingers off your own cell phone when you give him or her one of these toy phones. Our well-curated list offers a mix of realistic, high-tech replicas, toy flip phones, old-school land lines with push buttons, and even the dreaded rotary (but a fun one in the Fisher-Price Classics Retro Chatter, which many of us also remember playing with as kids).

Joining our list is the Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn, a highly affordable choice that speaks phrases and plays songs when you press the buttons – and the large blue slider generates even more fun sounds. It’s small enough in size to fit easily in a backpack or diaper bag, so you might find yourself packing it to entertain your young one every time you’re on the go.

Leaving the list in this update is the Toyk 3D, due to availability concerns. No matter which toy phone you go with, be sure to follow the manufacturer age guidelines – and for safety, always supervise your little ones during play.
