  Dial M for Monster
by Lauren O'Farrell

Dial M for Monster is a cosy handcrafted creature created from around 100 balls of yarn. Knitted, crocheted and hand sewn, Lauren's ArtBox captures a sense of childhood storytelling and curiosity with a tender crafted sentiment.

Please note that Dial M for Monster is a replica telephone box and does not include a working telephone. There is no internal space or operating door. Following life on London's streets and to ensure that Dial M for Monster is in very good condition, some restoration may be carried out by the BT ArtBox artist team.

Want to see it first? Find Dial M for Monster on the streets at Trafalgar Square Roundabout.

Frequently Asked Questions

   
Q: What is BT ArtBox?
A: This year we've got a Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 to look forward to, so we decided we needed to do something to celebrate. That something turned into BT ArtBox. It's a campaign that thrives on the nation's artistic talent. Across London's streets you will have seen replicas of the Gilbert Scott phone box, transformed by the imaginations of some of our very best creative minds. The boxes are now being auctioned to raise money for ChildLine's 25th anniversary. 100% of the net profit from this auction will go directly to ChildLine. For more information please visit www.btartbox.com.

Q: What is pre-approval and how does it work?
A: As part of our work to keep the auction secure and ensure that you are bidding against genuine buyers, this auction may require bidder pre-approval. You will be asked for additional information during the bidding process. Please follow the link on the item to submit your details for approval to bid in the auction. Bidders' personal information will not be published online and will be treated confidentially. Bidders may be contacted by a BT ArtBox auction team member only in relation to the auction.

Q: Is there an age restriction on making a bid?
A: You need to be 18 years of age or older to make a bid.

  Q: How much will delivery of the BT ArtBox cost?
A: The winning bidder will be responsible for costs incurred to deliver the BT ArtBox. As the BT ArtBox is heavy and bulky, a special courier service is advisable.

Q: I've won the auction! What happens next?
A: A representative of the BT ArtBox auction team will contact the winning bidder via email or phone to confirm payment and delivery arrangements. Payment must be made within 48 hours of the auction's close. If payment is not received within 48 hours, BT and NSPCC hold the right to sell the unpaid BT ArtBox to another buyer.

A: PayPal payments will be accepted for this auction. Creating a PayPal account is quick and easy. Please visit www.paypal.co.uk or www.paypal.com for more information.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
