They are out there, and assembled they look like this . . .

Given that, I don't understand why someone would want to sell one of these in pieces and of questionable condition when New in Box isn't that much more? The box says the eyes and mouth move in sync with the caller's words. Anyone ever see one of these in operation?

I've had several in my collection.  They're quite entertaining to young collection visitors.  You can see one ringing here:

The more common version, KC Bearifone is also fun.

I can imagine that someone took Rex apart and then couldn't figure out how to reassemble him.  It's quite the challenge.

So, it does bark when a call comes in!  I was wondering about that.

Mmm, how many times a day does it need to go outside?
