Kids React to Rotary Phones on YouTube shows children learning what the device is, how it works and then takes on topics like long distance phone calls and busy signals to trying to figure out how to send a text message on the phone.

From comments like “How does this even work?” to “Why do you even still have this old telephone?”  and “How do you dial?” It’s worth the laugh and the trip down memory lane, Especially for those of us who grew up with them in our homes

Here’s a link to some bonus reactions, as well.

kids theses days don't know what fun it was to use those.

We have a toy push button phone out to play with at the shop, and I'm always wondering how long it will be before kids no longer recognize a corded device as a "phone".

Why is the video embedded in a frame that's too narrow to actually show the whole thing?

Wait till they find out there's an actual bell inside. My son took an old phone apart once and was astounded by the bell.
