"DREAMPHONE is not a real phone and cannot be used with any phone network."
It came along before cellphones, but it inspired the dream of having control over your social destiny: DREAMPHONE.
It's a board game/mystery to find out which a boy has a crush on you. You use the DREAMPHONE to run the gossip mill to find out clues about your crush, and if you call the right one, he'll admit it and your fellow galpals all squeal at hearing the familiar guy saying "You're Right! I like you!". If that's not cheap self-reassurance as a pre-teen, then I don't know what is.
Back in my day, only rich girls had their own "private line" in their homes to call boys without the dreaded parent picking up the phone. I played this game dreaming not of my own phone but of my own independence, driving myself to the mall, meeting more interesting people than Cliff.
Kids today would think this is lame.
