Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE:MSI) offers an affordable gift for adventurous kids that combines fun with functionality. The Motorola Talkabout
MG160 series two-way radios are ideal for elementary age kids that love to play outside and explore, but still need to check in with mom and dad back home.
The Motorola Talkabout MG series of two-way radios are compact and easy-to-use by the entire family. The pocketsize design is perfect for smaller hands and easily slides into a pocket or can be attached with easy to use belt clips.
