2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother ... 2 Mar 2008
I bought this monitor approx 12 months ago and have put up with the interference ever since. When I switch it on, half the time it sounds loke an aircraft landing!! The noise it makes is awful! Changing channels to no avail, all you can do is wait one minute for it to stop. You can experience the same interference at any time during the day (not happened at night .. YET!)

Also another annoying "feature" is the fact that you have to switch on the parent monitor within 1 minute (or whatever the short time is) otherwise it loses its connection with the base monitor. End result is you have to wait until baby is fast asleep before tiptoeing back into the room and pressing the base monitor on again ... sigh.

I bought a BT digital baby monitor when number two baby came along recently. It was the same price, but the difference .. !! 100% better! I didn't know what crystal clear sound meant, until I bought the BT one. And rechargable batteries! I shall be purchasing a second BT monitor just as soon as I've finished this review!

1.0 out of 5 stars Tomy Classic Baby Monitor 30 Oct 2007
I've had this monitor for 4 weeks and I've decided that its so unreliable I'm going to have to get another one. Its range is terrible. We have an attic bedroom and our baby's bedroom is on the floor below and it still says its out of range! Unless you've got a house with no ceilings or walls, don't bother with this one!

This monitor keeps picking up other radio connections, it is very noisy all the time and keeps running out of batteries every 2-3 days making an annoying beep when it's near the end! Note that we do not keep it on batteries for long time. Probably 1-2 hours a day.
With the money I pay on batteries I could get a much nicer digital baby monitor with rechargable batteries.
In fact I will do so!

5.0 out of 5 stars IDEAL 19 April 2008
I read that other people have had problem with this monior but we have used tomy monitors on all 3 of our kids and are currently using this one on our 7 month old and we have NEVER had problems. We have clear reception 24/7. It has the advantage of 2 settings, 1 you can have it turned on constantly or 2 where it will only come alive when your baby cries, it has multi volume levels and channels, as well as cry reacting lights and brilliant roaming range, we used that when our son was smaller and we had to nip out into the garden, no problems. In tomy we do trust and always will do, why pay stupid money when this does what you NEED and that is to hear your baby cry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Baby Monitor 13 May 2010
I purchased the Tomy Walkabout Classic Advance Baby monitor to use when looking after my granddaughter. It was good value for money and is very easy to set up and use. I didn't want something too complicated and didn't need video/ or visual aid.
Gives me peace of mind and does exactly what it says on the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great monitor, good price 8 Feb 2010
We have used this monitor everyday for the last 4 years and it has been very reliable - only fault is when it is working off batteries as its range is not as good but otherwise its great value for money. Would recommend!

Poor product! Picks up other radio frequencies. Our receiving unit packed up after 15 months use! Stay clear

2.0 out of 5 stars Battery eater 11 Jan 2010
The monitor works fine, but the batteries need to be changed every 5 hours! Not very practical. We bought another brand and threw this one out.
