From its introduction through the 1970s, the Chatter Telephone was Fisher-Price’s best-selling product. It has been cited as one of the company’s offerings that helped save Fisher-Price in the 1990s following a failed attempt to market toys for older children in the late 1980s and enjoys continuing popularity. It is available both as an authentic reproduction and in a modern form.
