Can You Guess the Item?

This is a slightly different post. I had to write and describe an object without naming it. This one was pretty easy, but I had fun writing it. Feel free to guess.

Flip flop the opening and closing never stops

Click clack rata tit tat rounded buttons with a straight flat back

5-4-3-2-1-2 if the bars go all down you don’t know what to do

Clock with no hands, and mail with no stamps.

Grandfather had no tone only a string

Nowadays it has a tone but no ring

Disassembled voices tripped out over waves

It’s a far cry from when men lived in caves.
