Depends on what you are planning to use them for
Any good for kids to play with? The toy ones are terrible in our experience

If you're looking for decent kids ones, I bought Retevis RT628 from Amazon for around £15, they do a good job.
The real problem is having to walk 8 km to borrow the charger.
I haven't used the silvercrest ones, but have these - ebay.co.uk/itm…f:0 and been happy with them, come with usb rechargeable Li-ion batteries for under £20. Get a decent range if you are after a basic 2-way set.

Thanks for the tip @arjun311 - I just looked on Amazon and found they're currently in a lightning sale - got red pair for £9.85!
would these be good in the mountains?

You generally need line of sight between them so they are great if you are in the same valley but don't work if you drop down the other side.
If you don't mind fiddling the programming, Baofeng radios are much cheaper and can be programmed to do the same. See e.g. the 888 model (need a cable to program) (maybe £8 each), or if you want a more powerful radio the UVB5 or UVB6 are good (maybe £20 each).

see e.g. hamgear.wordpress.com/201…b6/
