Summary: The walkie talkies are alright to use for short distance I suppose, although I bought them for me and my friend who lives half a mile away expecting to be able to get in touch with one another as I never get signal in my house on my phone.
Summary: Bought these for my 10 year old Nephew as a Christmas present, mainly because I'd have loved these at his age !! One of the best Christmas present decisions I've made as he has been using them constantly, either having conversations with his little sister around the house, or when up exploring the woods near where he lives. He's also planning to take them mountain biking as he can radio his dad from the bottom of the cycle runs.
Summary: One of our Walkie Talkies had no sound when delivered. They were collected promptly when I contacted the supplier, and a new (working) set arrived within 24 hours. Most satisfied with this service. As other reviewers comment, the drain on batteries is quite high (ours lasted around 30 hours) but the WTs themselves work a treat, and are simple to use. They would be ideal for kids -- if one were to invest in rechargeable batteries!
Summary: A great buy. Reasonably priced and very well built. The kids have had a lot of enjoyment from these even if I can't get them to understand that they dont need to shout into them! Range is pretty good and I think only issue we have had was at the beach one day when the lifeguards appeared to be on the same frequency which amazed the kids that they could hear others ( yes i did get them to change channel).
Summary: Purchased so that when I am outside in the garden, if my husband needs me, he can speak to me; Works well for this purpose and if I am downstairs and he is upstairs. I did go for a walk into the village with the walkie talkie to try out but with buildings in the way reception was not received until I was high enough up above building height and with a clear view of home where the other receiver was, then it worked.
Summary: Good price for a pair of walkie talkies, and bought primarily to use on a cruise ship. They've been tested extensively and the range is pretty good in the open (around a mile) and they also work well in moving cars as a convenient way to talk to the other set. They're comfy to hold and come with a handy belt clip. They're robust enough to be dropped without breaking.The volume can be quite loud, so had to turn down a touch.
