The Connectivity Device for Today’s Smart Kids

The myFirst Fone R1s uses cellular networks to allow users to chat, voice and video call in real-time just like a regular phone.

“Today’s technology allows us to remain connected with the world at large at all times. However, such technologies often come with a caveat, and children today are exposed to various online risks.

The R1s is paired with the myFirstFone App on the parent’s phone, providing parents with the means to authorize and limit the people that can converse with their children, while also giving them real-time updates on the child’s whereabouts via an improved GPS tracking system.

The app allows parents to set a designated safety zone through the Geo Fencing Area Alert, as well as a one-touch SOS button for kids to alert their parents in the case of emergencies.

In addition to its connectivity and safety features, the myFirst Fone R1s is designed to keep young children engaged with interactive content.

Best paired with the myFirst Headphones BC Wireless Lite, the R1s features a built-in MP3 player and 8GB storage – and is capable of storing over 1,500 of your child’s favourite songs and audiobooks.

The Smart Watchphone uses a 1.3-inch IPS display promising vibrant pastel colours and users can choose between attractive animated wallpapers or photos taken from the 2MP camera on the R1s.
