The Princess Phone was the Bell System's first and possibly most successful foray into consumer marketing. Targeted at women and girls, it enabled Bell to sell additional phones for bedrooms. The Princess even had a little built-in nightlight. The phone's small size and lighted dial were designed to make it attractive as a bedside extension.
