I bought 2 sets of Playco's Walkie Talkies. What a Joy it was Christmas Day! I had a set for my (3) almost (4) yr old Grandson and for Daddy. And, a set for my (6) almost (7) yr old Granddaughter and her Mommy. They had so much fun trying them out. The Playroom is on a lower level and the transmissions were loud & CLEAR! The kids quickly learned how to work the buttons and can talk to Mom or Dad from downstairs! They LOVE it that they are so much the size of a real Cell phone (WITHOUT) the EMF's! In fact! I want another set for my husband and myself when we are working at the house inside and/or outside! The RANGE is fantastic! 1.5 to 2 Miles! Can't wait to try out that distance! They would have been Perfect for my Mom who was bedridden for awhile! Thank you Playco! ~ for the speed and good packaging! Will LOOK for you for future purchases!
