As technology has become a necessary part of our daily lives, the need for kid-safe technology is higher than ever. Now launching in Malaysia, myFirst offers the world’s first Kids Tech Collection for your children with its devices and the best alternative to social media for kids, myFirst Circle. The brand’s smartwatch-shaped device myFirst Fone R1s offers a gateway for children to stay connected within the safe ecosystem with full parental controls.
The company’s all-in-one watchphone myFirst Fone R1s combines voice and video calling, messaging, music player, camera, clock, GPS and fitness tracker. Equipped with heart rate monitoring, the watchphone also motivates its wearers to collect cute badges while keeping track of their daily steps. It can also train children with using alarms and reminders by recording their own or parents’ personalised voice reminders. The personalisation does not end there – the R1s’ watchphone face is customisable by choosing from a selection of animated wallpapers, selfies, and photos stored in the device!
The R1s was designed by G-Jay Yong and his daughter, RuFaye Yong – the youngest product manager ever 8 years old! – as the brand’s latest safe digital gateway for children. The company recognised the need for kids to engage with technology to assist in their socio-emotional development, all while ensuring secure connectivity with their loved ones.
“myFirst was created with the idea to be the first safe tech experience for a child, in order to enrich a child’s developmental process with learning experiences through fun and innovative gadgets. We wanted to rethink the way kids learn and play, in hopes of creating a community where children can grow up with technology introduced safely in their lives prior to facing the challenges of the adult tech world. To amplify this safe experience for children, we have designed a safe social circle app for myFirst device users called the myFirst Circle,” said G-Jay Yong, myFirst Founder.
Dubbed the “World’s first kids social circle”, myFirst Circle application binds the parents’ phone app to the kid’s R1s smartwatch and offers an enjoyable user experience. The social circle app prides itself in being the world’s first safe call, messaging, location, and social sharing ecosystem for kids to use with their family, besties, and friends. To ensure the safety of children who use this connectivity feature, no strangers can access the children through this app, and advertisements are not present.
In addition to the R1s smartwatch, myFirst has invented other products including bone-conduction headphones dubbed myFirst Headphones BC, Wireless, or Lite. The bone conduction technology allows children to listen to music without blocking their ear canals and stay alert to their surroundings. While offering safe options for technology, myFirst also has a range of products that let children tap into their visual and artistic skills. Those interested in art can draw with myFirst Sketch, a digital sketchbook that lets them save their drawings for future viewing while the myFirst 3dPen allows children to bring their pictures to life through 3d modelling. Children interested in capturing memories and perspectives can try the myFirst Camera.
As technological advancements become more prevalent and accelerated by the day, it is vital for children to be exposed to technology in order to stay caught up on cognitive learning ability. myFirst offers a variety of options through its products so that children can simultaneously play and learn with safety and accessibility.
