By "clicking" on the ABBA picture, a range of colours can be seen - I'm selling this particular one because I have three that are similar

 

$365  

Looking for all the world like an old style alarm clock with large bell gongs on the outside and a chrome plated carry handle across the back.

The Bobo is typical of a number of the more unusual plastic “Retro” styles of telephone that truly makes a statement. It has recently found more appeal amongst collectors, not just for its’ looks but also the rarity.

It would have been a shape that could look quite bizarre to some but appealing to others and consequently appealed only to a narrower buyers market; in that "fun" part of the house they really attract attention.

Recently the Bobo is more difficult to obtain and becoming more expensive

 

Most unusual "Pop style"

Just right for ABBA
