Walkie Talkies are back in a big way and better than ever. A few years ago the Federal Communications Commissions assigned 14 new radio frequencies for what has been labeled Family Radio Service. The two-way radios of today can send a signal as far as two miles.
The best part is you can actually understand the person on the other end with crystal clear signals. This is thanks to the new frequencies that are actually closer to FM radio stations signals than the old AM spectrum of years past. The days of static and not being able to hear or understand the person on the other end are long over.
The newer models are also smaller and lighter making them perfect for kids to use. Typically they are four inches high, and weigh in at only eight ounces give or take. That being said, there are many models to choose from. In order to make it easier for you, we have broken it down into the top ten best walkie-talkies for kids in 2016. Please note that they are all great choices. We hope you enjoy whichever ones you end up picking.
