The receiver has 'Coleco' inside the handle area and is unique to this phone, having a magnet in it that activates the hang-up mechanism inside the girl's arm. The phone is about 12 inches in height and the base is about 10 inches by 6 inches. On the back of the base is a Ringer on-off switch and the standard phone cord connector.

Raid Bug Phone

Raid Bug Phone

Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh Phone
Dated 1976 by American Telecommunications Corporation. It stands 14 inches tall. This touchtone phone has a red and brown plastic base with Winnie holding a brown receiver in his right hand and touching a blue butterfly with his left hand. The butterfly is often missing on this phone since it is very fragile. This phone is listed on page 94 of Carol Smith's Winnie The Pooh Collectables II book.

I also have a lamp attachment made to fit these American Telecommunications phones that I would sell for $20 without a shade, or $30 with an original shade.
