Crisp and smooth sound quality with an adjustable volume level. Channel scan/monitor for easily finding available channels. Wishouse kids walkie talkies are perfectly safe, they are made of environmentally friendly materials and they come with a built-in flashlight for playing at night.

Qniglo Walkie Talkies
These walkie talkies come in a range of beautiful macaron colours. They have advanced crisp and clear voice technology, and enable children to talk from 3 miles so they are long-range. They have an ergonomically designed push to talk operation, so they fit perfectly into kids hands. Rechargeable via USB.
Just note that because walkie talkies work by tuning in to the same frequency as another device, anyone who is in the range may also be able to join the channel your child is connected to. Make sure kids understand not to talk to strangers and show them how to turn it off or switch channels but most importantly to tell a parent or guardian, in the unlikely case that ever happens.
