I teach kids for a living. Not long ago, I heard about kids playing with imaginary phones.

A parent told me their 4-year-old would pretend to scroll on their “phone” and “show stuff” to other people by holding their palm out to them. Then they would use their thumbs and indexes to do a「」 to take imaginary photos.
