The 1980s gave us shoulder pads and big, frizzy hair, but it also gave us a fully-functional LEGO-like toy brick landline phone from Tyco.

These phones are making a comeback as retro-cool home accessories. Refurbished models are showing up on eBay and are also available from several online vendors. The refurbished ‘Big Blocks’ phone by Tyco will set you back about $70-$120.

There may be satisfaction in knowing the purchase of a refurbished LEGO-esque phone adds a fun accessory to the buyer’s home and is an act of cultural and material recycling. Stats for LEGO Phones Trending: Older & Mild
