I have a 5 year old son that LOVES his Talkie. He sends good morning and good night messages to everyone every day. It is a great way for him to talk with his grandmas and aunts without having to use our phones. I was worried he would get bored with it, but after 3 months he still loves it. We've had glitches but customer support responds very quickly and resolves the problem. Super easy to use and he can do it all on his own. His face lights up when he hears the tone that says he has a new message.
