Messaging Walkie Talkie Toys

VTech's KidiGo Walkie Talkies Share Preset Animated Messages

— September 9, 2019 — Life-Stages
VTech recently launched a next-gen walkie talkie toy for kids ages four and up that combines the classic walkie talkie experience with digital communication features. The two-way KidiGo Walkie Talkies boast a kid-safe digital connection that keeps conversations from being listened in on or interfered by other walkie talkie users. As well as being able to enjoy a back-and-forth chat with a friend, kids will love being able to send messages using the preset animated choices on the KidiGo Walkie Talkies, which appear as pixelated black and white icons on a backlit LCD screen.

The KidiGo Walkie Talkies can communicate with one another from up to 500 feet away and boast a long-lasting battery life.

The walkie talkie toys also include four two-player games for real-time gaming between a pair of devices.

1. Digital Walkie Talkies for Kids - Combining classic toys with digital features creates opportunities for companies to offer new interactive experiences.
2. Kid-safe Communication Technology - Incorporating secure communication features is a key innovation in the kids' toy industry.
