If you don’t want your kid to have a smartphone at such a young age, we’ve got your solution!

There’s now a new alternative for parents who don’t want to get their kids a smartphone! Republic Wireless is launching Relay, an LTE, and Wi-Fi-equipped walkie-talkie, which can only communicate with preset partners. There will also be a free Relay app, which will allow parents to communicate with the walkie-talkie using their smartphones. The device ranges in price from $99 for a single to $149 for a pair.
