Spy Gear Ultra Range Walkie Talkies Review (Spin Master)

What It Is

The Spy Gear Ultra Range Walkie Talkies from Spin Master is a set of long-range walkie talkies to keep kids connected to their fellow spies on a mission. The walkie talkies operate on three channels- A,B, and C- so make sure both are synced to the same channel to hear each other. To talk, press and hold the red button on the side then release to hear your fellow spy's response. The walkie talkies have a range of up to two miles. Depending on where you use them, the range can shrink due to interference. For example, in the city, where we tested them, the range shrinks to less than half a mile.

Is It Fun?

Despite the restricted range due to interference, we were still impressed with the sound quality, which came through loud and clear up until we lost contact. We also think the added spy theme to these walkie talkies encourages additional opportunities for open-ended pretend play.

Who It’s For

The Spy Gear Ultra Range Walkie Talkies are for ages 6 and up.
