After buying several 'kiddie' sets of walkie talkies for my grandkids, I decided to buy a real set. These were inexpensive, and the other reviews looked good, so I gave it a try. The kids love them! They are lightweight, durable, and have a fantastic range. We are never that far apart, but the cheap sets would be out of range very quickly. Also, the sound quality was horrible with the other sets. We have had a lot of fun with these, and have made up several games using them. Their favorite is Hide and Seek, where you give clues through the walkie talkies. I would recommend these, and am going to buy another set so all three children can have one, plus one for me!

My only 'issue' is that the instructions did not go over how to 'alert' the other person that a message was
incoming. After some experimentation I discovered that two quick 'hits' on the talk button will 'buzz' the other
party that a communication was incoming.

Edition: With Wall Charger & Rechargeable Batteries Verified Purchase
Most of the negative reviews about this product focus on the range or the belt clip, so I'll comment on those first.

The advertised range of any radio is always "under optimal conditions", which means unobstructed line of sight and dry air. Absorption from buildings, trees, hills, rain, etc. will cause loss, and there are other limitations as well. I agree that the limitations on range should be made more clear in the description to set the potential buyer's expectations. However, to be fair, it's a fundamental part of radio communication and not a problem that is specific to this product. We've only used them at distances less than a mile, and had no problems.

Belt clip removal is made clear in the instruction booklet. Pry tab upward with one hand, slide clip downward with the thumb of the other hand. Took me 15 seconds, 10 of which were looking at the picture in the manual.

There is a serious problem, which is (for those living in the U.S.) that you need an FCC license to operate GMRS channels 1-7 and 15-22. It's $85. I was not aware of this fact when buying this set, and I imagine many other folks are not aware either. Yet there's not a single mention of "license" or "FCC" anywhere on the description page. Of course your next thought is, just use channels 8-14. The problem there is that I bought these for young children, who can't yet be relied upon to make absolutely sure of what channel they're using. An FCC violation is not what they need!

For those who need to push the limits of range, an additional problem is that channels 8-14 are FRS channels with lower power and therefore lower range.

For the price, this product seems solidly built. If you know what you're getting, it's probably a good deal.

The units worked well the first time, but the battery easily gets drained, and sometimes without any warning. It's not something that you can use on a daily basis.

We use these around the house when the kids are in the back yard or in their room with the door closed. with their tv up blaring, they don't always hear when they were called for.

I love the fact that we can charge them rather than blowing through batteries.

We bought these to take on a cruise. They worked fine but i wouldn't agree with the range. We experienced some static when we were on different floors, but no so much that it made it not understandable. They are small enough to drop in your pocket our bag. For the price i would purchase again.

I've only used them at short range, so far, but they are good for that, and the small size makes them easy to carry. battery life is still tbd, too, but alkaline cells hold their charge in storage, and it's nice to never need the charger base.
