*Disclosure: gifted for our honest review
We have been looking for some long-range walkie-talkies, since our son Riley took an interest in them. He loves anything action based and loves to role-play undertaking missions. He has had some superhero ones in the past but they broke easy and did not cover a great distance.
I was impressed that these Discovery walkie- talkies from Trends U.K. work up to a range of 3km, perfect for father and son nerf wars.
Suitable for 4 years plus, they have three channels but you need to be on the same channel to communicate. There is an on/switch, a button for a light and a button to change channels. If you want to chat you can press the ring button or press to talk to whoever you are pairing up with.
They are really light and you can attach them to your clothes using the belt clip attached to the back.
They are a STEM product winning a Creative Play Award in 2017. For those that haven’t heard of STEM, I had to google it as I didn’t know what it stood for!
It is an acronym, representing the academic disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Essential for children’s learning and in keeping with the modern world, supporting enjoyable education at home.
STEM toys can be identified from the logo, which explains that the toy supports STEM learning. Parents may recognise STEM as many Primary schools use it in their National Curriculum.
Do they do the Walkie- Talkie?
Riley is certainly impressed, he likes to use the clip to hang one on his jeans. He has showed them off to his cousins and roped in myself and his dad to test out the long distance. They are clear sounding and good for hide and seek or ninja spy games!
They are available to purchased from various retailers, such as Debenhams and you will need 3 AAA batteries in each walkie – talkie.
I will be running a giveaway over on my Instagram page, if you would like to be in with a chance of winning a set of these walkie talkies.
