While kids are getting phones at a young age these days, many parents, including me, do not get warm fuzzy feelings when it comes to giving a smartphone to a young child. But what can you do when your kids are playing around the neighborhood, and you need them back for lunch?
Well, there are actually a few things you can do. You could go on a bike ride and find them, take a walk around the neighborhood, get in your car and drive around, or be that smart parent who has it all figured out and get your kids a set of walkie-talkies, such as the Motorola T100 Neon Blue Alkaline Two-Way Radios.
The Beauty of Two-Way Radios
A two-way radio offers you a quick way to communicate back and forth with your kids and keep tabs on them without using a phone.
The T100 Neon Blue Alkaline Two-Way Radios are very user-friendly, so your kids (and you) can enjoy hassle-free communication. The range is about sixteen miles, which should be enough to cover your neighborhood, and they are pretty resistant—no cracked screens here!
The T100 Neon Blue Alkaline Two-Way Radios from Motorola are user-friendly walkie-talkies with a battery life of about eighteen hours and twenty-two channels for communication. The belt clip makes them easy to bring along and to attach to a bike.
Not a Toy
What Is a Two-Way Radio?
A two-way radio is a radio that can not only receive but also transmit a signal. These radios are designed for bidirectional person-to-person voice communication with other users with similar radios using the same radio frequency (aka, channel).
There are different types of two-way radios: mobile, stationary base, and the portable configuration handheld devices that allow you to use them as you walk—hence their nickname, walkie-talkie.
Why Are They a Good Idea?
It’s all a matter of personal needs and what makes you comfortable. While I don’t consider myself a helicopter parent, I do need to know where my kids are and how to get to them if they need me, and two-way radios are an uncomplicated way to do just that.
A Lot of Fun
Walkie-talkies have always been a lot of fun for kids of different ages, and they make a nice addition to many different games. They are certainly a lot more basic than a smartphone, but they’re a nice way to communicate with the person holding the unit without a huge price tag and worrying about the kids breaking their unit.
