|Petrol Blue Telephone* | Flamingo Gifts £39|
The slight alteration from the original design, incorporating pushable buttons instead of a rotary dial, is very convenient. I remember my Grandmother having a telephone with a rotary dial when I was younger, it was a total novelty for me but it wasn't always practical, especially if you got a wrong digit and had to start over. It looks brilliant in my mum's kitchen and she doesn't even miss caller ID or an answer machine - I think she's smitten with it!
