Wow...trying to be interesting...
Well, I'll bet there won't be another submission like this...so one of a kind...lol
Technically, I thought I hit the white on white pretty good...
as for meeting the Challenge, I can remember as a kid using something similar...so for us, it was a toy.

Been a long time and overdue for a comment...hello neighbor (Your entry is right above mine). Excellent color, details and mood of recalling simple joy in simple toys. The plain white backdrop sets off this simple toy can phones nicely. The colors and details really pop off the page; kudos on getting/keeping the details on the white string to stand out and not blown out.

I remember using Campbells soup cans for this!

Being on the can has never smelled so good! Haha sorry I had to.

Great idea. You'll get an 8 from me, but if I had to do it again I'd dirty up the cord, rough up the labels and dent the cans a bit. Doesn't matter. That's just the way I remember them. ;-)

Mmm this image makes me hungry.. for telecommunications! Well anyway I like this idea, home made toys like in the old days (which I don't remember because I'm a spoiled brat :p) Curves adjustment might make the colours pop more (and hide the right corner of your backdrop)
