HobbyKidsTV takes Relay on-the-go!

Relay keeps families connected. It’s like a screen-free smartphone with fun features and nationwide range, but it works like a walkie talkie with easy one-touch communication. Curious if Relay is right for your family? Wondering if your kids will like it? Take a look at how the Hobby Kids react to their brand new Relays (and the freedom that comes with them!)

Customize with cool features

You can rename your Relays, customize them with stickers, and use free features, or channels. There’s an echo channel, which repeats your words back to you in funny voices. There’s also music playlists, language translation, and more!

“These are the brand new Relay walkie-talkies. They have WiFi and 4G LTE so you can communicate with people close by or really far away. It’s kind of like a screen-free smartphone.” -Hobby dad

Stay safe with communication, GPS, and parental controls

The Relay app is made for parents. Talk to your kid from the app wherever they are and no matter which channel they’re using. And if you don’t want to interrupt their fun, just use the GPS.

“One of the cool things about Relay is you can talk to anyone, anywhere, at any time. You guys should split up and talk to [Hobby Mom] in different parts of the house. The key here is to show Hobby Mom that she can talk to you guys all at once” -Hobby dad

In addition to the family chat channel and built-in location tracking, parents can also set up custom chat channels so they can talk to one kid at a time or give the kids their own private channel. All features and channels are enabled through the app, putting you in control of what they can and can’t access.

Have fun and stay safe with Relay

  1. I didn’t know that Relay could do translation, too. Cool!

  2. Yup, just go into the app and select “Add Channels” and you will be able to toggle which Relays have access to translate. Right now we have English to Spanish, but will hopefully be adding additional in the future. Enjoy translate and let us know if you find this helpful :slight_smile:

  3. It’s awesome! My daughter has been spending the most time on that one lately…even moreso than music, suprisingly!
