I knew I should have listened to the more critical (re: negative) reviews on here. This toy works great for about an hour after installing fresh batteries. If you accidentally leave it on over night you have to install new batteries. The only reason this is an issue is because each walkie talkie takes 4 AAA BATTERIES EACH. That's 8 batteries every time one of your kids forgets to turn it off. WASTEFUL AND EXPENSIVE.
PROS: - when it works it sounds good. - easy for toddlers to master. - one button, one volume knob. - looks great. - reception is acceptable for one house.
CONS: - takes 8 AAA batteries - batteries drain quickly - you'll spend more time unscrewing the battery door and replacing than using the walkie talkies. - not durable. - if dropped (and kids will drop and throw it), the batteries loosen and you have to unscrew battery door to reseat it. - the only thing that makes it Lego is a sticker with an image of legos on the plastic.
GET A RECHARGEABLE WALKIE TALKIE INSTEAD! WASTE OF MONEY!
