I recently had the opportunity to review the stylish, hip and unique VTech Retro Phone! This phone is amazing compared to those big, bulky cordless phones that take up tons of counter space. I just love how sleek and attractive it is and how it could fit anyone’s decor. This is such a great conversation piece and people are always drawn to it, wanting to know if it’s a real phone. I am also a fan of the rotary look and think the company did a fantastic job bringing it into a modern look. The phone is very light and sleek, it’s easy to keep at your ear and go hands free as a busy mom often doesn’t have time to keep her hands on a phone. Overall I am very impressed with the design and how they were able to take an old style phone, give it a modern look and still include all of the great features you find in cordless phones. This is simply a must have phone and I highly recommend it!
