We’ve recently been trialling the innovative 1stfone, a phone that is designed for children to use. You can read about our initial thoughts here, where I attempted to put across a balanced view of phones for kids. You can also read about our thoughts at the end of our month’s trial. We aren’t keeping our 1stfone as for us, it is just not necessary. But we genuinely love this product. So much so, I am so happy to be able to offer one in today’s giveaway!
1stfone have recently launched a new image phone and have plans to launch a braille version too. And to me, this is just confirmation of my belief that 1stfone is a tremendously innovative piece of kit. My daughter is 8. She does not need a phone just yet because she is always with either us, her parents, or another responsible adult with a phone. We found that there was never really an opportunity for her to actually use her phone. And that, at the end of the day, makes me feel a certain sense of relief- she is still a child! But for older children who have additional learning needs, I feel that the 1stfone is potentially a life changing gadget. More so now that the image phone has been launched- visusal keys are a fantastic idea- and when the braille phone is on the market it opens up many more doors for many more children too.
Your 1stfone does not allow you to use the internet. There are no games and no apps to download. It is a phone. In place of a screen, there are buttons and each button is pre-programmed so that there can be no calls to the wrong person. If your child has had the need for a phone but you are reluctant for them to have a phone that is all singing and all dancing, then 1stfone is the phone for you!
