    My husband and I must have played with this for at least an hour before wrapping it for my grandson's Christmas present. I was really impressed with this product. There is quality to it.The batteries even come already installed. I haven't seen that in a long time. My grandson is 10yrs old and he and a friend play with the walkie talkies while playing with nerf guns outside in an apartment complex where they live. I have seen my grandson come inside and still be able to communicate to his friend using the walkie talkies with no problem. I was skeptical at first due to the child like appearance. overall I give this an A++++

    I bought this item for my son for christmas and he was so excited to use it ......until we opened it and he ran outside with his walkie talkie and i stayed in the house. Only to realize that the walkie talkies didnt even work. As far as the darth vader boom box, what a piece of junk. i was too tired to even try to deal with taking the item all the way back to Best Buy and call this purchase a total loss. TRUST ME WHEN I SAY....DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! Product is very cheaply made and doesnt work like a normal walkie talkie. BIG DISSAPOINTMENT THAT'S FORSURE!!!

    Walkie Talkie is all static. Boombox is a toy

    Boombox is ok, not "Impressive". Sound quality is toy level. The "voice-changing" is more like adding echo to your voice. You can add breathing sound or lightsaber sound effect. Using it as karaoke is like poor sound + heavy echo voice. Walkie Talkie is much worse. Static is most I can hear. Range is like a few feet, you can hear the actual talk better than what come out from the speaker. The last warning: each walkie talkie uses 3x LR44 batteries, that's not cheap, not easy to find and don't last long.

    I was worried at first about buying this because I had read several reviews about the walkie talkies not being the greatest but I got it on sale for $10 so I thought we’d give it a try. I’m glad I purchased this for my son for Christmas, he LOVES it!! Our walkie talkies work great all throughout our house and the kids play with them outside further away than the house and we haven’t heard static once! The boom box is their favorite though! They love that it changes their voice!!

    My nephew loves the Darth Vader voice changing boombox. That item alone was worth the price we paid. The walkie-talkies, on the other hand, are not the best quality. They are difficult to hear through, and have a very short range. I wasn't expecting Motorola quality reception, but you literally cannot leave the room and get a signal. Overall, I'd buy this again for the reduced sale price offered before Christmas, but it's probably not worth regular retail.

    Quality of the walkies is very poor, often won't even send signal to each other even 5 ft apart let alone throughout the house. Didn't expect them to be great but thought they'd work. The vader voice changer is also very poor just sounds like a robot voice changer and sounds nothing like vader. Had I not bought this on clearance for like 10 dollars and had paid the full price I would have returned it.

    I got this as a Christmas gift for a child, but the “try me” button wouldn’t turn off and the boom box made a horrendously loud clicking noise every two seconds. There was nowhere in my house I could put it without hearing it so I ultimately took it back and returned it. The only way to disable the “try me” button was to open the box, which I didn’t want to do seeing as it was a Christmas gift.

    We purchased this toy for our eight year old grandson who is a Star Wars fan. The interactive aspect of this toy appealed to us as a way to get him interacting with a friend instead of isolating with a computer game. He liked the voice altering aspect of Darth Vader, but gave up on the walkie talkies due to excessive static when using them. We returned the item.

    Walkie Talkies are weak and distorted but handle a few drops. Batteries die quickly since my kids leave at least one on. The Voice Changer is really cool, but... but... I'm 43, I can only take "stop, you are under arrest" for so long. It's like my girls have nothing else to say. The quality is fine, especially for the Daily Deal price I got it for.

    I got this for 8.99 deal of the day so for that price not much to complain about. But this is not worth 39.99 regular price. Its cool looking and makes a nice decoration on a kids room shelf. Biggest issue is the mic cord is less then 2 feet so you cant really hear yourself with the vader voice because the mic is right next to the speaker.

    This item was purchased as a Christmas gift for my nephew. He absolutely loved it. Has played with it ever since and it's almost a month after Christmas. The walkie-talkies are nice, but what he really loved is the boombox with the microphone. If you have a Star Wars fan on your hands this is def a great item for them.

    Can plug up to tablet or phone to play music. Minimal features. Karaoke is hilarious. Walkie talkie batteries had gunk on the negative side. Had to scratch it off and then the walkers were fine. Distance isn’t much, just fir goofing around near rooms of the house.

    I bought this for my 3-year-old nephew. He has a bit of difficulty working the wallow-talkies, and the sound quality wasn’t great, but I didn’t expect it to be great, they are a child’s toy. He absolutely LOVED the microphone and Dart Vader boombox, singing to it for an hour!

    My son loves Star Wars and so this was a great choice as his birthday gift. He loves playing with the walkie talkies with his younger brother and loves singing with the boom box Mic. Hes been walking around the house making believe hes Darth Vader with the Voice Changer. Great Value!

    I bought this one unintentionally when I was in the store to buy games. My children love starwars very much and thought this one is a good toy for them. Indeed they like it, yet the walkie talkie range is too short. Maybe only effective in 3-4 meter.

    I was a little doubtful on purchasing, but when this Darth Vader arrived, I couldnt stop playing with it! The voice sounds are so clear and realistic, the breathing sounds are all dope. I wish now I had purchased another one for my nephew. Great gift.

    I thought this was a mask but looks more like a handheld cassette player of decades past...no matter, my son loves it! Sounds close enough to Darth Vader. Walkie talkie range is limited but that keeps him close. Great deal for the price!

    Walkie Talkies Junk

    The walkie talkies are junk. They only work with a short distance and give off so much static/white-noise/interference. The Darth Vader voice box is fun and cool, but only for so long before you put it down and move to something else.

    I bought this toy for my grandson. The price was very good, however the batteries on the walkie-talkies were dead. Obviously he was disappointed. The batteries ended up costing me another $15 at the store. He liked the toy.

    Got this for a 4 year old when it was on sale. Had a blast with it. Sounds cool too, nothing beats sounding like Darth Vader. Walking talkies are decent too. I got it for $10 and it was totally worth it, would buy again!
