An iconic childhood plaything has received a 21st-century upgrade, guaranteed to delight little ones while cashing in on their parents’ nostalgia.

Of course, nostalgia doesn’t come cheap.

Available for pre-order exclusively at BestBuy.com, while supplies last, the Bluetooth-enabled model retails for $60, or six-times the price of the magination-powered base model, USA Today reported.

In addition to making and receiving calls, the upgraded Chatter, which is compatible with both iOS and Android devices, can be used as a speakerphone and can be recharged, the newspaper reported.

According to Gizmodo, the updated Chatter still rolls, moves its eyes and maintains its primary-colored numbered rotary dial that spins, but now that satisfying click-click-click-click-click can dial actual phone numbers and placing the red handset onto the cradle - remember that? - ends the call.

“The special-edition Chatter Telephone is a working rotary phone smart enough not to come with  any apps,” Fisher-Price said in a statement to USA Today.

“This updated version of the nostalgic childhood toy brings playful calls into the real world for all adults – working seamlessly with consumer’s cell phones via Bluetooth connection.”
