If you’re the parent of a little adventurer you’ll want to check out this fantastic invention that’s set to save you a whole heap of worry.
Perhaps you already know that heart stopping feeling when you can’t clap eyes on your busy little one. As mum to a feisty explorer, it’s a feeling I’m all too familiar with, but thankfully modern day technology is here to help in the form of the nifty little Snowfox Trackerphone.
Snowfox Trackerphone is designed for four to eight-year-old kids. It’s the perfect way to stay in contact with youngsters before they’re old enough for their own mobile phone. The small device combines a simple phone with no screen and a GPS locator so kids can experience independence, but communicate with their parents if needed. There is only one button on the device so it’s super easy for kids to master – if the child presses the button the parents get a call-me notification so they know immediately to voice call the child.
The long battery life means you get can a whole week’s use out of the device from a single charge. The powerful antenna means you can call your child anytime, whilst the unit is tough enough to withstand the rough and tumble that comes with adventures in the great outdoors.
Parents access the Trackerphone via a free smartphone app. It lets you know your child’s location on a map and enables voice calling. The first version of SnowFox Trackerphone will be released in October 2016, but is currently only available via their Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for those in Europe and USA.
They ask all interested countries to donate a small amount to the campaign to indicate interest, saying active countries will get Snowfox soon – so feel free to make some noise Australia! We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any developments.
