Now that my older kids are, well, a little older (10 and 8), they’re heading out to play more often with the neighbor kids. I’m 100% fine with this as I have plenty of fond memories playing with my neighbor friends and the kids who lived a couple blocks away.
However, I do like to have an idea of where my kids are and when they’ll be back, so I make them wear watches and come home at a specific time.
My 8-year-old has been BEGGING for a phone (hate it to break it to ya, sister, but it ain’t happenin’), but I like the idea of this Relay Screenless Phone/Walkie Talkie & GPS Tracker as an alternative. It’s currently available at Target.com for just $29.99, which is $20 off!
This device operates like a walkie/talkie allowing your kids to push the button to talk, and you use the Relay app on your mobile device to respond. It has nationwide 4G LTE coverage and integrated GPS location tracking.
Please note that you will need to sign up for Relay service to be able to use this device. The cost is $9.99/month per device, but no contract is required.
Head to Target.com to check it out!
