If you're old enough to remember the carefree days of Play Away, Trumpton, Pinky and Perky, Derek Griffiths, Pipkins and looking through the arched window, you'll know that once upon a time, Fisher-Price ruled the world. Well they did in terms of making charming pre-school toys.
Engaging, educational and delightfully whimsical, Fisher-Price's nursery toys entertained a whole generation of curious whippersnappers, so thank goodness they're back in the shape of these re-issued Retro Classics to delight and entertain a new generation of kids.
L-R: Teaching Clock and Two Tune TV Music Box
Built to last and just as enchanting as you remember, each memory-jogging plastic classic even comes in retro packaging - it's just like being whizzed back to the late 60s, only you won't have to intersperse playtime with crummy black and white episodes of Andy Pandy.
'London Bridge is falling down' and 'Row, row, row your boat'.
Whether you choose the Chatter Telephone, Teaching Clock or the Two Tune TV Music Box, you can be sure little ones will be completely bowled over by these colourful playthings. After all, most Fisher-Price classics were designed during the era of peace, love and understanding. And that's more than can be said of today's toys.
Created with little hands in mind, these stimulating toys are brilliant gifts for kids whose parents can't stop waffling on about the good old days. In fact, even if you haven't got children, Fisher-Price Retro Classics are pretty iconic collectables for any toy fan in the know. And no matter how old you are, we guarantee you'll be unable to resist making a few 'calls' on the Chatter Telephone and singing along to Row, Row, Row Your Boat via the Two Tune TV Music Box. All together now, 'Row, ro…erm, hello boss.'

Chatter Telephone Introduced in 1962, the Chatter Telephone™ was designed with a rotary dial to teach children how to dial a phone. Today's Chatter Telephone makes children smile just the same with eyes that roll up and down, and a dial that rings. This friendly phone is being re-introduced for a whole new generation of children to enjoy!
Two Tune TV Music Box Introduced in 1966, the Two Tune Music Box TV has been stimulating the eyes and ears of children for generations. Playing two classic tunes and showing two stories scrolling across the screen, today's Two Tune Music Box TV recreates the fun of Row Row Row Your Boat and London Bridge Is Falling Down as authentically as the original!
Teaching Clock Introduced in 1968, the Fisher-Price Teaching Clock has made learning to tell time fun for generations of children. Designed as a little red school house, the Fisher-Price Classics Teaching Clock plays Grandfather's Clock and has a rotating dial with timeless pictures of preschoolers hour by hour, as the clock face and minute hand revolve to the soothing ticking of time!
Oh wow! Now that I remember my old record player I must buy one for every child I know! Such a shame you won't be getting more of these, they're wonderful! Gabrielle, Teesside - 18th May 2011
Ooooo are you going to get more of the Turntables? My nephew is 1 in July and I know his life will be better with one of these. Carol, Bristol - 11th May 2011
Firebox says: No current plans to get it in, sorry.
I bought the Fisher Price Teaching Clock and was so disappointed in it, I sent it back. The Original was strong/sturdy, I think even wooden with the images painted on or even stuck on well...the Music was the same, but the winding mechanism felt cheap, and did not Tick/tock, like the original.

I had the original Teaching Clock back in the 70's and was very excited to see they had brought this back so I ordered it for my toddler son. What a BIG disappointment it was! The original clock made a 'tick tock' sound as the music played but this one doesn't and it is also not as robust as the original, but then nothing is built as good these days I suppose!! I'm beginning to think I may actually have a faulty one though as it is now making a clicking noise every now and then when the music is playing as if the clock hand is sticking when turning! Sending back for refund unfortunately. I must hasten to add that Firebox customer service are excellent so this wouldn't put me off shopping again. :). Janice, Belfast, NI - 22nd November 2010
I have the telephone, clock, and TV all of which are great. So I bought the record player and it was a MASSIVE disappointment! It takes batteries!! The music box sound must be recorded and the dimples on the records are now boring grooves (half the fun was guessing where in the song you started it). It's got a flimsy door on the record storage and is smaller in size. Not only that but mine played the same song on both sides of one record, and on another I had to press the arm to down to get sound! Needless to say it got returned.

My Grandparents bought me the television for Christmas when I was little and I still have it to this day and it still works as I use it when my friend's young children come round to play. I would love to buy the record player for myself hahaha because I always wanted it when I was a child but never got that one (I obviously wanted too many things?).
