Get into the 70s vibe with this peacock green retro TRIM phone. Launched by the GPO in the UK in 1965 as a fashionable alternative to its regular model, TRIM stands for Tone Ringer Illuminated Model.
It was the first phone to ring using a modern electronic warbler rather than the traditional bell mechanism and on the earlier models the dial glowed in the dark. And don’t worry, this replica version plugs straight into your phone socket. €35 from www.cuckooland.com
