Now if I could just surgically implant them

Do your kids harbor a deep and abiding love of all things walkie-talkie? Have you tried model after model, only to have them break, the batteries be sucked dry, and the battle cry of “WHAT? I CAN’T HEAR YOU!” shrieked all ’round your yard?

What? That’s just me? Fine.

I love this set because there are three of them and, coincidentally, there are three of us! And with a 6-mile range, everybody should be able to hear everybody else, no matter where we are. The kids can play with them, and I can send them with when they go play with neighbors. Plus, I can listen in while they use them. Not that I would ever do that. Ahem.

Stop looking at me like that.


  1. I have no real desire to use a walkie-talkie on a regular basis. Of course my experiences recently have mostly been along the same lines as yours with our Scooby-Doo Walkies Talkies making the sound of static more than anything else.

    That being said, this spring I saw an excellent use for them. When we were in Hershey Park, I saw a family dispensing a walkie-talkie to each member of the family, in case somebody got lost. This I thought was a spectacular idea.

  2. Thanks for this one! I’ve been planning to buy walkie talkies before next summer’s camp, and these look great.

  3. We have these exact ones and use them primarily for skiing.
