As adults are to cell phones; children are to walkie-talkies. Witness your toddlers unleash their imagination as you hand them over that little mobile device. Yes, walkie-talkies are no longer an item of civil wars only but are now a quotidian part of children’s playthings that are now nonchalantly available at the toy stores. Not only are these a pair of interactive toys but also a mean of efficaciously keeping in touch with your kids while they are off to the playground around the block. With the features of being portable, hands-free, long ranged and children-friendly, the Walkie-Talkies are the new adored toys.
If it’s a reliable, robust and static-free walkie talkie you’re looking for, with a long transmittance range, then the Retevis RT628 is the one for you. This is the hottest walkie talkie in town as of today, with the most economical retail price as well.
This five-button device is not too challenging to decode. It’s 22 FRS and GMRS channels can easily impede static and interference, providing you with clear and impeccable sound. The VOX feature allows you to operate the walkie talkie hands free, without the hassle of pressing the PTT before communicating every time.
In addition, the box comes with two belt clips, which allows you to tie the walkie talkie around your waist or any other comfortable place, because holding the device in your hands is way too mainstream.
Also, if your children are too young and you’re afraid they might change the settings you’ve set up for them, you can always lock the keypad, which only enhances convenience and restores more faith in the device.
The range of the RT628 is incredible. It is dependent on the line-of-sight and blockage due to hills, trees and housing in the way that tends to decrease it. From high hill top, your range can reach well more than 10 air miles away. As of standard line of sight over the flat open land, your range will be able to reach from 2 to 3 miles.
In a residential area, your range will average from 1/2 to 3/4 mile, up to 1 mile, which is pretty neat for a ‘toy’. It is powered by 3 AA batteries (not included). The body is made up of super durable hard plastic that is slightly water resistant too.
The Retevis RT628 close to being flawless in almost every aspect. This will certainly be your best purchase, which not only will be fun to have, but awfully beneficial too. Labeling this walkie-talkie as a ‘toy’ and not the ‘actual thing’ would be an understatement.

Since these are 4 in number, the first question that comes to mind is, can you connect all four walkie-talkies together? The answer is, yes. You can connect as many walkie talkies together as you want, as long as they are on the same channel which can be adjusted in the settings.
VOX and locking are a part of the various features of the Qniglo. The volume of sound can also be controlled. The only downside of this toy is the price because we understand that not everyone can afford to spend so much on a set of walkie-talkies.
We will only recommend buying this set if you have more than 2 children, otherwise, a normal pair of two will suffice. With this set, we can guarantee your child a non-stop playtime full of fun and adventure.
