VTECH Phones and Earthquake Cake
If you visit NanaHood on a regular basis you know I don’t review products very often, but occasionally one comes along that is so cool I just have to tell you about it. I had never even heard of VTECH until they contacted me. The phone she wanted me to try out sounded awesome.
“Ideal for busy home multitaskers such as parents and work-at-home professionals, the new LS6475-3 (MSRP: $99.95) comes with a regular handset plus a comfortable cordless headset mounted directly on the base – making hands-free conversations a snap while working, cooking or managing other household tasks.”
I am definitely a multitasker (aren’t most women) but I am NOT very techy, so I wondered if I could actually operate it. I decided to give it a go and was really pleased with what it looked like.
The first thing I noticed about this phone is that it talks to me…that’s right. It doesn’t just have Caller ID, it tells you who it is. This comes in very handy when you are busy and someone calls you that you want to mail to Iceland. (If you don’t know what that means click on this to read last week’s post about mailing people)
The second thing I noticed about the phone is that it frees up my hands so that I can do other things in the kitchen, like cook.
You have to look closely to see my headset but yes, I’m talking on the phone!
