Bought these as a gift for my nephew. He instantly loved it. They arrived before the kids went out for the Halloween festivities so they were able to take them out and test the range. They were easy to use and all the kids wanted a turn to use one of the walkie-talkies. These seem to be made pretty well, which is important when kids will be using them. These are a great bang for your buck. I think I will need to buy more of these for the other kids in the family.
