Kids outdoor adventure with walkie talkie

When it comes to toys, you can never go wrong with a fun and interactive walkie talkie set.   The toy walkie talkie has been a popular plaything for kids for decades, and it's not hard to see why. It provides hours of entertainment and allows kids to use their imaginations to create all sorts of scenarios and adventures. One of the great things about toy walkie talkies is that they come in a variety of designs and themes. You can find sets that look like traditional radio walkie talkies, as well as ones that are based on popular TV shows or movies. Some even come with unique features like built-in cameras, sound effects, and flashing lights. Another benefit of toy walkie talkies is that they encourage kids to get outside and play. Whether they're running around the backyard or exploring the woods, walkie talkies allow kids to communicate with each other from a distance, which adds an extra element of excitement to their games.   Of course, toy walkie talkies aren't just about fun and games. They can also help improve kids' communication and social skills. By using the walkie talkies to interact with each other, kids learn how to listen, take turns, and express themselves clearly. Plus, working together to solve problems or complete tasks can help build teamwork skills and promote cooperation.   Overall, toy walkie talkies are a classic toy that provides endless entertainment and can help kids develop important skills. Whether your child loves outdoor adventures or just likes pretending to be a secret agent, a set of walkie talkies is sure to provide hours of fun and imaginative play.



How do you use a walkie-talkie?

A group of people who are using walkie-talkies to talk to one another have to tune in to the same frequency band, which is called a channel. Their radios are all "receiving," so their microphone/loudspeaker units are working as loudspeakers and probably hissing with static, a bit like a conventional radio that's not tuned into any particular station. When someone wants to to talk to the others, they hold the push-to-talk button on their handset. Their radio goes quiet as their loudspeaker switches over to a microphone. As they talk into it, their words are converted into radio waves and beamed out on the prearranged channel (typically at a frequency around 460 MHz). Since radio waves are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, they travel at the speed of light (300,000 km/second or 186,000 miles/second ), so the waves are picked up almost instantaneously by the other handsets. The radio waves are converted back into fluctuating electric currents and the loudspeakers use those to reproduce the sound of the talker's voice. When the talker has finished, he or she says "over" (meaning my bit of talking is finished) and releases the push-to-talk button. The radio now switches back into listening mode and someone else can talk. Unlike a normal radio, which will only pick up broadcast voices or music from a radio station, a walkie-talkie is a two-way radio: you can both talk and listen (send and receive). The main drawback is that the same frequency channel is used for both things, so only one person can talk at a time. When communication devices work this way, they're described as half-duplex (a single channel allows communication in only one direction at any one time), as opposed to full-duplex (where you can talk and listen at the same time, as on a telephone).   Play Games With Your Walkie Talkies Code Words HIDE & SEEK Each player has a walkie talkie. Take it in turns to hide. The ‘seeker’ presses the CALL button. By listening to where the sound is coming from (the ‘hiders’ walkie talkie), the target should be easily located! You can limit the amount of times the CALL can be pressed to make it a more difficult game. TREASURE HUNT Ask an adult to hide something for the ‘hunter’ to find. It should be in an area where you can both see each other, but at a distance apart where you would normally need to shout to talk. The adult calls out clues using the walkie talkie that guide the ‘hunter’ to the treasure; ‘to the left’, ‘above your head’, ‘under the leaves’ or ‘look behind the tree’ etc. Older children can play this without an adult supervising. PRETEND PLAY Using just your imagination, it’s fun to pretend you are in the jungle or halfway up a mountain! Tell headquarters (HQ) what you are doing and where you are. Where else could you be using your walkie talkie? SECRET CODES Make up secret codes so that only the person on the other walkie talkie knows what you are talking about! Have fun by changing names and places with your own code words. For example, Mum could be called ‘V’ or ‘target one’, Dad could be called ‘W’ or ‘target two’ and a neighbour could be called ‘X’ or ‘target three’. As long as both you and your friend understand the rules it will be easy to talk in code. You can also create substitute versions of everyday words. For example, you could substitute the words ‘birthday’ with OLD, ‘present’ with DONKEY, and ‘party’ with DANCE. So, you might say (in code) ‘I am going to take the OLD DONKEY to the DANCE!’ If only a few people know the substituted words, it can be a good way to keep your communication secret. Do not forget to write your code words down so you do not forget them!




What are Walkie Talkies?   A walkie Talkie is a two way transmission and reception radio that is used in communication between 2 people or a group of people. It works on a half duplex channel which means that there can be only one person sending out radio signals at a time while one or more can receive the same. What is the difference between a mobile phone and a walkie talkie? The main differences between the two are: A mobile phone works only in places where there is a network tower found. This tower helps in transmission and reception of signals. A walkie talkie requires no such tower. Hence it can be used in any terrain Distance is not a factor for communicating through mobile phones. Walkie talkies work only when both the transmitting and the receiving radios are at a certain distance from each other. If the distance exceeds, walkie talkies are of no use What does communication range of walkie talkies mean? The distance between which two walkie talkies can effectively communicate without interference is called the communication range. The tall claims of most walkie talkie brands   There are products sold in the market that claim to have a communication range of almost 12 km! Experts explain how this is calculated. Most ranges are calculated on a flat terrain where the transmitter and the receiver are placed at line of sight with no interference at all in between. Sadly this is not how a customer intends to use a walkie talkie. Interference like buildings, trees, walls etc reduces the communication range considerably. Hence it is wiser to not fall for such claims and analyze the product well before investing.
