A mobile phone made specifically for young children is called a Firefly phone.
On the faceplate of the Firefly phone, there are only five picture-coded buttons that can be pre-programmed by parents.
The Firefly phone incorporates a clip for securing it to backpacks and has a kid-friendly design. Parents can use a Firefly phone to stay in touch with kids who go from school to an after-school daycare Centre.
Green and red call buttons to answer and end calls, as well as parent and dad buttons with symbols like those on toilet doors, make up the five buttons on a Firefly phone.
Additionally, there is a directory button that can save up to 20 numbers that your parents have programmed in. On the side of a Firefly phone is a 911-assistance button.
The Firefly phone is made to be user-friendly for kids and robust enough to withstand everyday usage by kids.
Being in constant contact with their children has many benefits, especially for parents whose children are starting preschool or kindergarten and who split their days between daycare and school.
Parents can give children a simple way to contact them at work without having to remember phone numbers by getting a Fireflys phone..
It also stops older kids from making pointless phone calls to friends and running up high expenses.
With a Firefly phone’s, you can either sign a contract with a cellular service provider that has been approved by Firefly or purchase mobile service on a pay as you go basis with prepaid minutes.
Prepaid minutes can be purchased for US$.25 per minute online, over the phone, or using prepaid cards found in some retailers.
Like an adult phones, Firefly phones are of course compatible with a wide range of accessories, such as hands-free headsets, carrying cases, and various closured shells that can be changed out like the faceplate on a regular phone’s.
Customers can buy a Firefly phone’s for roughly $100 USD from a number of merchants, such as Target and Toys-R-Us, or directly from Firefly online.
