Simple water games that challenge players to transfer colored rings from one peg to another have been available from dollar stores for years. Typically, these toys have taken on tubular or rectangular shapes, but this 'Water Fun' design transforms the controls into punchable buttons on a cell phone. By pressing on either the left or the right button on the phone-shaped toy, kids are able to activate spurts of water that will give them the boost needed to guide the colored rings.

This inexpensive water game is a prime example of how classic toys can be updated for a new generation of kids who are fixated with technology, yet retain the low-tech qualities that have made it an lasting form of entertainment over the years.
