Retro Handset Attached to Retro Phone

This old (you can call it retro, if you want) telephone works if you have a landline. I don't, so my grandkids love playing with it!

I found this old telephone at a thrift store. After giving it a good cleaning, my grandkids now love to talk on it, just like in the olden days.
