To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
We used these in our suburban because with 6 kids it’s sometimes really difficult to hear what’s being said in the back seat. So the back and middle row get their own walkie talkie and driver gets one too. They actually work really well outside the car too! Haha. Kids love going outside with them and can spend a hours on “missions”....and as a parent, a kid not begging for screen time and entertaining themselves is priceless....so these really are so worth the cost of batteries to go with (unlike every other toy that needs batteries that dies after a day and your $30 worth of AA batteries is gone in 3 days!) Just.....buy them. It’s worth it.
So my rating is based off the fact that I could tell instantly these walkie talkies have been opened, used and possibly returned prior. The box wasnt sealed and the top of it was bulging out. Opening the box the two walkie talkies weren't wrapped, but clearly were meant to be wrapped because the plastic bags were stuffed in the bottom of the box under the walkie talkies. I didnt realize that batteries werent included, but that could be my mistake from not reading. So I don't know how they work. Bottom line if I buy something that is supposed to be NEW I expect NEW. Not refurbished or returned and resold.
This set of walkie talkies works well for short distances, with good clear sound. Especially liked is the large side talk button, which is great while driving. Can use without taking eyes off the road, so we like them in our vehicles for instant communication. We believe the 3 AA batteries should hold a charge well.
We have tried other more complicated walkie talkies that likely had more range, but these are adequate for most things within about 1/2 mile. We noticed a little interference from being too near some AC motors, so just step away and the transmission clears up. Made for kids, but when older folks are slightly challenged with program buttons, these are simple and straightforward without too many functions to confuse the user.
These were so easy to set up. Took 3 mins (including battery installation) 6 AA batteries, which are not included. They look cute. My son was amazed. The distance goes very far. Like my son walked 3 blocks away and it was still crystal Clear. He probably could have gone farther but he walked so far that he said “these are REAL Wallkie talkies” You will not be disappointed
Super fast shipping! I received them within 24 hours. These are perfect, good quality especially for kids but, good enough for adults as well. The sound and reception is nice and clear but, I haven't tested the maximum distance yet. These are perfect for what I purchased them for.
These are the best Walkie talkies I’ve ever owned. I bought them for my son for Christmas and I was shocked at how far they reached. My husband went driving just to test them and got over 10 blocks away before he started breaking up. They are very sturdy too. I imagine they would be hard to break. Great quality.
