A walkie talkie for kids is far more than a communication device; it is an experience and a toy, primarily. So if you decide to buy one you really don’t have to go all out. Your kids don’t require a high-end device that will allow them to communicate across great distances, record voice or use Morse code. They would have no idea how to use a device with such features. Be smart and save yourself some money. Buy walkie talkies that are marketed for kids.
Nerf’s entry is fairly typical of low-cost walkie talkies for kids. It works best at short ranges, looks fun to play with, and is relatively prepared for a few accidents. Outside, their performance is inconsistent but generally acceptable. The morse code feature isn’t likely to see much use, but might entertain children with an interest in different modes of communication or simply flashing lights.
These toys come in a number of different guises, although those made specifically for kids typically tend to be of inferior quality. We will look below at 3 of the best walkie talkies for kids – a quality Lego offering made especially for kids, a bestselling standard version that would still be perfect for kids and a cool wristwatch style of walkie talkie that will ensure your kids do not drop or lose them.
Products designed for kids are always going to be better for them than adult products as they will be in fun colors and will typically be smaller and so easier for them to manage. As such these Lego toy Walkie Talkies for kids top the charts – they are made for kids but also actually work! They are easy to use with just one button to press to talk and can cover a distance of up to 1 mile between sets. The reception and quality is very good. There is also a volume control so you can turn them down when they are playing indoors. The Lego look of the design is fun and colorful. They have a good battery life and are able to stand up to the odd dropping dished out by children. The only downside is that there is only one channel and the Lego brick stickers can peel off over time but overall they are a great choice.
