There are many reasons why we believe the Kidzlane walkie talkie is one of the best options for your young child. Here is our overview of it’s great features.
These walkies are perfect for little hands. They feature a large “talk” button. Small children don’t have developed fine motor skills so it helps to have a large button that is easy to press. They also feature a clip on the back which allows kids to clip the walkie to their belt or pocket.
We were quite impressed with the range of these little walkie talkies. They boast a 2 mile range when the two units are unobstructed.
