We are a group of volunteers and we build wonderfoons
in our spare time.
If you have a question about the Wonderfoon or if you are interested in buying a Wonderfoon then please contact us. We will try to respond as soon as possible.
On this website you can find more information about how you can create your own Wonderfoon. We are in the process of translating the different pages so you will find some pages that are only available in dutch.
What is a Wonderfoon
The Wonderfoon is an old telephone converted into a mini-jukebox using a some computer and a mp3 player module.
Pick up the handset and you will hear a dialtone. When you dial a numer a song from the 60’s or 70’s will start playing.
The name “Wonderfoon” was invented by caregivers who guide elderly people with dementia. 30 songs from their past can be stored in wonderfoon. In our Dutch variant we play for example songs from Wim Sonneveld and Tom Manders. That music, together with a device that also comes from their past, turns out to be a great way to activate, to calm down and also to emotionalize these elderly people.
In the past months we have built 45 Wonderfoons with 8 volunteers for care group Noordwest Veluwe. Now that the project has ended, we want to make more people happy with a Wonderfoon. You can build the Wonderfoon yourself using the building description. On this page you will find more information.
