Your kids are at that age when your giving them freedom to go ride their bikes to a friends house but still too young to get a phone. The RELAY is an awesome option for you. We love ours and have had it a few months now. Whenever my kids go out they throw it into their backpacks and we can communicate from anywhere at all. Also has constant location so you always know where they are. The RELAY devise itself is around 50 dollars. Then ten a month for the services. Even good for sleepovers in case they need you for something. For us it was the best move we ever made ! Makes a great Christmas gift – keep it in mind they are right around the corner.
