It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted a toy in general, so I think it’s about time to post one. This one actually has some video so at least it’s not just reading.
So, here we have the Delta Force Talking Scanner. Scanners are those things people buy to listen in on police frequencies. It looks like a Walkie Talkie, but since it doesn’t work like a Walkie Talkie, they called it a scanner.
The Delta Force Talking Scanner is an audio toy meaning it actually has some stuff you can listen to. It includes batteries and has the famous “Try Me” feature so you can listen to it before you get it, but make sure you grab one that still has the battery pull tab in place.
This keeps people from wearing down the battery before you get it home. On the other hand, I probably could have avoided the issue I had with the toy cell phone. Pulling the tab and finding out it didn’t work could have allowed me to pick one that worked.
The package boasts real voice commands and military sounds. It also mentions that it includes a belt clip. Well, it does have a belt clip, but you can’t say it’s included when it’s attached to the scanner itself. You might as well say it includes an antenna, speaker and the button to make it work. Don’t be fooled, it’s a one piece toy.
There’s also instructions on the back of the package. They’re so unnecessary I can’t even remember what they are and there’s no point in showing them. What could it possibly say? Take toy out and press button, that’s it, that’s all you do. You don’t even need to put the batteries in unless you have to change them, but you don’t even need to do that if you picked one that had good batteries to begin with.
It also has a dial at the top you could turn, but it didn’t do anything. Thought it might be an off and volume dial but it didn’t do anything.
So how does it sound? Watch the video.
