When I heard the radio ad, I thought, wow, I need to check these out. I am SO GLAD I DID! I have three grandchildren living clear across the country. Mom and Dad are busy and don't have a lot of time to chat by phone...letting the kids talk, etc. I also have two other grandchildren in a nearby town. So, I took a chance and bought five of these little critters. What a wonderful idea! I can now chat with ALL of my grandchildren and not have to bother the Moms and Dads. The grandchildren seem to get a kick out of it, too. And, they can talk with their other grandparents and family. They are easy to use for all. I would highly recommend this product especially to those grandparents who want to keep in touch with their grandchildren firsthand.
