Ratings and Reviews
My kids do love their talkies, however, the team missed its mark in a few markets. This is a great toy to keep kids and jet setters connected, but they missed the mark for divorcées.
There is no way to silence the talkies completely. In fact, the only way to quiet them is to do it through the cloud. Volume options are high, medium and low. No off. Plus if they are being transferred between houses using school as a medium, you will have to turn off every feature before sending the talkies as they will keep spouting jokes, trivia, etc.
But far and away, the WORST thing about the talkies is setup. It took 9 tries, 2 router reboots, a phone reset, and a partridge in a pear tree to finally get it paired to my network/phone. It uses light bursts from the phone/iPad/tablet screen to pair it to the network by placing the base unit on the screen. I understand this as a security measure, and it registers the device to your mobile device at the same time, but this process has to be done with each network you want to join too. So, for example, if you want the kids to be able to take them back and forth from your ex’s, you will have to convince your ex to allow you to connect to their WiFi, pair devices etc. This will also be the case for any other network they want to join. By the way, these ONLY work on WiFi. Otherwise, the kids love them, so still a decent, if limited device.

It’s was an awesome toy for a while
We received the talkie shortly after they started mass production. In the beginning, it was a great toy. Turned on and recorded with ease, sent messages without a problem, and stayed connected to my phone and WiFi without issue. My kids loved the voice magic and gently tossing it to make it say weeeee! After a few updates,however, it started to mess up. Within about 6 months, I had to reconnect it to my WiFi every time we tried to use it. This process deleted all messages off the toy and took several minutes. It also started draining batteries, sometimes lasting only a day or two on a fresh set of Duracells. Needless to say, the kids quit playing with it. We now have another kid young enough to enjoy it, so I pulled it out and reconnected it to the phone. After downloading the app, I noticed the extra features are now paid. I understand making money, but as much as this thing cost me initially, and how much it continues to cost me in frequent battery changes, I just can’t see spending that much money on a subscription for a few push notifications and voice magic which used to be included in the toy. My kids are disappointed that it doesn’t copy them anymore but I’m just not paying $3 a month for a voice changer.
Excited at first....
We got this for my daughter who tends to have separation anxiety when she’s at her moms on the weekend. We set it up with no issues and everything was working great...the next morning we had to reconnect it as it wouldn’t recognize her toy being connected. Worked again without any issues until we decided to add another toy to the app. We set the new toy up for my son however after completing us setup the messages to my daughter were going to his Toymail. We disconnected and deleted both Toys to start fresh and re set everything up. After spending nearly an hour of attempts trying to connect we’ve given up. The app says we need to be on a 2.4G network connection which we are along with connection to the toy. There seems to be some major issues with connecting to the toys and adding additional toys just seems to overload the system. I guess we toss these in bin of old toys that never get used
