Power of a Phone + Functionality of a Walkie Talkie = Relay for Kids!
Through September 14th or while supplies last, hop on over to Target.com and score the Relay Screenless Phone/Walkie Talkie & GPS Tracker for just $29.99 (regularly $49.99) – that’s a savings of $20 off the regular price!
Different from a smartphone or kid tracker, Relay is screenless so there is no texting, cameras, or internet access which means you won’t have any more screen time concerns! Plus Relay is built for rough play so kids can throw it, step on it and even get it wet!
To use the Relay device, kids simply press one button to talk, kind of like a walkie-talkie, and then parents/caretakers/older siblings can reply using the free Relay app on their smartphone. Kids will be able to reach any combination of pre-approved contacts including one-on-one chats as well as an everyone chat that can be set up when the account is created.
And if you call your child while they are busy, you can leave them a message that they can check at any time just like voicemail!
Relay also offers integrated GPS location tracking so you can see your kid’s location right on your phone without interrupting their fun. And if your kiddo ever needs help, they can use the SOS function to immediately send you an alert and their location by simply pressing the button. Parents can also set up Geofences which alert you when your child leaves a certain area!
Relay has the range of a cell phone so you can make calls from all the way across the country. It uses both 4G LTE and WiFi – connect your Relays to WiFi through the app on your smartphone and after that, they’ll automatically connect when in range, switching from 4G LTE to WiFi as needed.
Note that Relay is only available in the U.S. at this time (excluding Alaska and Hawaii) and does require a $9.99 per month service charge (independent from your normal cell phone service bill); however there is no contract required so you can cancel at any time!
Do you use something other than a phone to call or track your kiddo?
