Video Walkie Talkies For Kids Reviewed

Fun For All Ages

If you are looking for a fun toy to give as a gift to a child, think about a set of video walkie talkies! I can review one choice option for you today because one of my grandchildren has a set from Spy Gear. 

We have a similar set of walkie talkies to the one pictured at the left at our house. They have been a source of entertainment in our home for many years. The grandkids love to play with them, especially with Grandpa who is a kid at heart. After seeing the models that now have video capabilities, the kids may not find ours so much fun anymore. 

Recently, my granddaughter who loves everything pertaining to being a spy received a set of Spy Gear Video Walkie Talkies for her birthday. Oh my goodness we all had so much fun playing with them! Yes, the little kids and the big kids had a ball! The adults were pretty impressed with this set working as well as they did. They are toys, after all and the quality is very much toy-like but they were pretty danged awesome. The video shows well on the screen and is actually very clear. There was a bit of lagging as it focused but then the video was good. The sound quality was excellent! The size is small enough that a child's hand can accommodate holding one in their hand and being able to operate the button to talk. 

One thing to remember if you purchase a set as a gift is to also include some AAA batteries. Each walkie talkie needs three to work and since there are two in a set you need six right out of the box. Both little radios need to be turned on in order for them to work. You will also need a screwdriver to open the back up to insert the batteries. I just thought that I would mention this so that a child won't be disappointed when they can not immediately play with this fun toy. 

The great thing about a toy like a video walkie talkie set is that both boys and girls can have hours of fun with them. They are not going to take up much room in a toy box; if they ever make it into one that is. Honestly, I think any child on your gift list that is at least six years old or older would really enjoy a gift like this.

  1. What a fun gift idea for a child and also for the adults in the family. My 2 youngest grandsons would love these. I'll need to wait a bit. The 9 year old is ready now, but his 4 year old brother is not quite old enough to enjoy them as well. They definitely are going on my gift list for the future, though.

  2. I have always thought walkie talkies were fun and I have often thought how I need a set to talk to my own family members when they are in various rooms of the house. The video walkie talkies remind me of Skype, except without the internet connection. Spy Gear sure comes up with some great toys!

  3. Walkie talkies are a must have. My grown up sons use them when they go on camping trips together. Walk out into the woods and you are still in touch with someone. They are lots of fun and I think every kid should have a set at some point in their lives. Thanks for a great review!
