PhonyPhone ®

BabyCenter
BabyCenter's PhonyPhone® is made for small talk. This fabulously fun and educational app lets your little one dial the phone and chatter away without ever making a real call.

With the simple press of a button, you can download the interface onto your iPhone or iPod touch and instantly transform it into a pretend phone complete with an oversized screen that's easy for small fingers to manipulate.

When your child hits a number, the phone speaks the number and displays it as both a digit and a word. Hit the musical note and get an upbeat rendition of "London Bridge Is Falling Down." Push the bubble icon and release a stream of bubbles sure to provoke a giggle fit.

Inspired by kids' endless fascination with the phone, BabyCenter's PhonyPhone® app will keep your child happily entertained while mimicking grown-up telephone time. And it's not all fun and games: role-playing is crucial for your child's development. Best of all, you can always turn down the volume!
