DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! We bought this monitor before our baby girl was born, and trying it out before she arrived it seemed to work fine. For 3 months we didnt have many problems with it (it always made a crackling noise but eventually we got used to it). Since then however all we have had is VERY loud interferance. Nothing has changed, and yet now it doesnt work. This isnt the cheapest babymonitor around, and I would say definately dont waste your money on it!!!! (read more)

As a new mum I was looking for some assurance that when I left my litlle girl upstairs napping i would be able to leave her with confidence but, i am sorry to say that the Tomy Walkabout Classic's did not allow me to feel this. Although they are easily portable with batteries and a large waste clip no matter where I was in my home there was a lot of interference. I came to the conclusion we may be living too near to a mast but when I took them round my friends they were no different.... (read more)

We were brought our Tomy Classic baby monitor as a gift before our little girl was born and when we tried it out it was great......But now our daughter is here we have had no end of trouble with them. We only had them for 2 weeks before our daughter was born and only used them that once, so how can a seemingly trusted company still be offering these monitors when they obviously do not work?

My Tomy Walkbout Classic kept cutting out, losing pairing, and susseptible to interference.
Just awful. 20 years ago when was a child, we used to have a pair of kids walkie talkies that me and my mates played with. We never seemed to have half of the problems with those that we have had with the Tomy Walkabout classic.
I find the baby's end cuts out (even on mains), both radios keep unpairing, and the interference sounds awful.
In my opinion Tomy would have trouble palming this off as a... (read more)

I bought a Tomy walkabout classic because they were an established brand and it had all the features I required in a baby monitor. I found that the monitor worked well for a certain amount of time and then the interference that first started occurring sporadically and rarely became more and more frequent.
I found that going to bed with the monitor on was not an option, as the noise would drive me crazy. One night my husband even threatened to through it out the window. Neither of us would be... (read more)

I wouldn't recommend the Tomy Walkabout Classic baby monitor. We bought it based on the Tomy brand, but we have had terrible trouble with it. We have found it frustrating to use and generally unreliable. (read more)

The Tomy Walkabout Classic is a brilliant monitor which does what it says on the box. I would recommend this to anyone, especially if you live in a house with thick granite walls and have a lot of wireless equipment which can interfere with other types of monitor. Much better than any digital. The sound is clear even on a low setting. There is a little interference but nothing to worry about, and you can even hear the baby breathe when you are in the garden. The only setback is that if... (read more)

I would have to say that Tomy Walkabout Classic is a total waste of money. It worked quite well for about 3 weeks and now hardly operates at all either on battery or on mains. Intereference is absolutely dreadful and sometimes no reception at all can be achieved even if you are in the room next door.
Buy a digital unit. It is worth the money. (read more)

The Tomy Walkabout seemed to be a cheap and cheerful option and was so for home use. It works great in my home and garden 30ft long but in Hotels its not reliable due to its tendency to lose signal within buildings. (read more)

Tomy Walkabout Classic - Price is good considering all others charge an arm and a leg just for something that receives and transmits sound! Compact enough to be used as a portable monitor. Nice idea to have a button so you can communicate to your baby, but be real, if your baby cries... speaking through a monitor is not gonna make them stop!! I bought the monitor as a replacement for one I had since my 14mos old baby girl was newborn. The previous one was a Phillips brand monitor. It worked... (read more)

I don't think I could fault the Tomy Walkabout Monitor. It has now seen me through my second child and it has never let me down. Not once have I had any interference and it picks up the slightest sound. The volume goes from 0-10 but we have had it on 6 at the highest and that is with the receiver outside my daughters room. When I bought the monitor it was one of the averagely priced brands and has been worth every penny. (read more)

Overall, the Tomy Walkabout Classic is a great portable monitor system that's reliable and easy to use, either plugged in or with batteries. Gives you the confidence to go about your business in the knowledge that wherever you are in the house or garden, you will hear your baby if he or she is in trouble, or has woken after a nap.

Looking for a well-built but reasonably priced baby monitor for our sixth month old baby led us to the Tomy Walkabout Classic.
We needed a monitor that would work remotely while we are in the garden at least up to 300 feet (or more) range from the house, and preferably had to have at least one mains adaptor to save on battery drain (in the pocket!).
The Tomy Walkabout Classic does all this in an impressive little package. The parent receiver unit has a good-sized plastic belt clip that... (read more)
