Rated 4 out of 5 by RidesLikeAGirl Great for a 7 year old. Eats batteries.
My 7 year old son really wanted "real" walkie talkies, something with a good range. These fit the bill. He loves them. We haven't tested them for distance but they definitely work well in our country setting for up to a mile with no problem. It will pick up other radio signals loud and clear too. Changing the channel helps with this.
Getting the belt clip off to install the batteries was a trick the first time. Push up on the little tab and pull the whole clip down. It didn't come with instructions covering this.
He has had them a week and is on his third set of AAA batteries (3 at a time per walkie talkie). I've tried to monitor closely to make sure he is turning them off when not in use. Aside from eating batteries these are good and I would recommend them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BKSP talk button got stuck
They worked the first time. The second time....the talk button was stuck! Therefore the other person can't get through. Disappointed.

This is just what was needed to maintain normal speech in our multi-level home; eliminates yelling to get ones' attention. A low cost, effective solution.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CorinnaMae Now he likes them...
I recently bought these walkie talkies to use this summer down at the boat yard, or on my guys property with 56 acres to roam on.
My guy saw what I ordered the day I got it and made his remarks on why did you get those? I said it would be handy out on the boat or the docks or up at his property. He didn't agree, but did keep quiet about it.
Now just a few days later we were at his property, and the storage area is way down back. And he needed something from the main camp. Luckily he was willing to try them and Wah, Lah !! He got to use them and actually has changed his tune on liking them. The range is good, there are some areas, where it is staticy, but overall it's fun, it's useful, and my son wants to play with them also. Good buy I say !!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by freetalk 18 mile range is a joke
Couldn't even get reception at 1 mile away. Not much above a toy. Quite useless.
