When the package insert says "Walkie Talkeis," you have reason to doubt these are a quality product. And in this case, you'd be right! I imagine that they might work as walkie talkies, but with none of the capabilities you think you are getting. We didn't even put batteries in before deciding to return them because the everything other than power and talking buttons are fake. They don't even push in. Even the screens are fake, just printed on. No morse code signals. No ability to change channels. The basics are missing, so I wish we hadn't been fooled by the "decorative" elements of them online.
