1996 Electronic Dream Phone reviewed

At Rock Paper Shotgun, Cara Ellison reviews Milton Bradley's 1996 Electronic Dream Phone, a pink, plastic, teen-exploiting horror from the preironic era.

The idea is that you get three boys in your hand (eyooo!) and then you take turns to call them individually on the Phone, picking up extra boys as you discard the last ones. The boys on the phone give you a clue as to which boys do not fancy you. ... as I pick up the cards now as a fully grown adult, in the sort of tipsy glee that is necessary to even open the box, I glimpse that if I’d played it when I was younger I would have been made aware that girls are supposed to aim for relationships. What boys think of you feels more important than what you think of yourself.

Mom says hang up! Electronic Dream Phone is available at Amazon in both vintage and modern forms.
