Keeping your kids in your neighborhood is a top priority for all parents. Having a teenage daughter, I like to send her down the block to a small convenience store. Having the Motorola Talkabout walkie talkie radios has been mind easing for me. I can send her to pick up items I missed from the grocery store and be able to contact her any time I need to while she is gone.
We always have a good reception, so I don’t have to worry about losing her. The Talkabouts come in neon blue and pink and can reach up to 16 miles, given the terrain and obstructions. They are small, yet durable and fit in the palm of your hand securely. With 22 channels, I can put them on a channel that is not being used so no one else can listen in on my daughter and I. The walkie talkies make a great gift and a perfect Valentines Day gift to keep in touch with your loved ones, at the park, camping or anywhere your family is spending time together. It also comes in handy like my situation, sending a teenager to the store, when sometimes a phone is not quick enough solution.
Motorola Talkabouts are compatible with other walkie talkies. It has a keypad lock so your personal settings do not get changed. A flashing light will alert you when your batteries are low. Two belt clips are included for easy carrying. It has a call button to let out a loud ring, which my daughter and I know this is meant for a dangerous situation.
Motorola Talkabouts are available in various locations online and in store, including Target, Walmart and Home Depot. You can get one now from Amazon below.
