2018 Resolution: Stay in touch with friends and family. A weekly 📞 call might help.
Western Electric manufactured the pink “Princess” telephone beginning in 1959. In mid-century America, as telephones became mainstream instruments of teen communication, phone manufacturers began designing specifically for the growing teenage market. Available in white, beige, pink, blue, and turquoise, the Princess was designed to be a bedside phone for teenagers—specifically teenage girls. To facilitate bedside use, the phone took up only a third of the space of the standard desk phone. It also had a night 💡under the dial—perfect for late-night conversations. These features were brought to the fore with the advertising slogan: “It’s little, it’s lovely, it lights!” #NewYearsResolution #HistoryResolution #PhoneHistory #Teens #TeenHistory #BusinessHistory #2018Goals #AdvertisingHistory
