Okay toy, but the static makes it less fun than it could be!
on October 20, 2012
My son received this as a gift for his sixth birthday.
The range is fine. We live in an apartment, and we used this as he took the trash out (a few hundred feet from our door). I could hear him well, and we talked back and forth. They seem sufficiently sturdy as well. He has thrown them around a bit, and they haven't broken.
There is a lot of static, however, and that is frustrating. It makes the whole system less fun to use.
Overall, I'm not impressed. I just don't remember the walkie-talkies I had growing up making that much noise.
So far, these were not as much of a hit as I had hoped, but hopefully, he can have more fun with them with other kids-- I can't handle the noise!
