If you are a parent who is reading this post then Phone & kids may not sound to be a great combination. Today, even a four year old toddler can easily operate a smartphone and watch his or her favorite cartoons then leave aside the indispensability of a smartphone in the life of a teenager.  Of course parents will be annoyed cause at the age when the children need to be playing outdoors and do other active stuff they are glued to smartphones. But we bet you won’t mind buying and giving ‘Easyfone Star’ to your children.

Touted as India’s first phone for kids, Easyfone Star is here to stay. This is simply because it is the easiest ‘phone’ and not a smartphone in town that is made only and only for kids!  Crimes against children like bullying, kidnapping, sexual offences have become prevalent in present day; as a result safety & well being of children is the priority of every parent. Especially at thsoe times when the child is away from the parents, safeguarding children from any unfortunate incident is even more tougher. Easyfone Star is a gadget that is made with safety of the child and staying connected with his parents are the main focus aspects.

Some of its salient features that go in line with right parenting are:

  • Limited Phone Calls: Calling or receiving a call via Easyfone Star is restricted to pre-configured contact numbers. This ensures that the child talks only to people known to the parents like parents themselves, grand parents or friends.
  • Track the child via GPS: Easyfone Star has GPS tracking facility which is crucial and the USP point of this phone. For safeguarding kids from any unsolicited mishap like kidnapping and more this feature can work like a magic wand fr tracing the child even in places where no internet coverage is there.
  • Dedicated SOS Button in case of Emergencies: It has a dedicated SOS push button on back which can be used by child if he finds himself in any sort of danger. On the use of this SOS button mobile on its own dials up to three times on most frequently spoken five numbers from the pre-configured contact list until the phone is received.
  • No Internet: Well, kids are free to make faces on this salient feature of the phone but for their own betterment Easyfone Star is designed to be Internet-less.The phone does not have internet browsing feature. So parents can be assured that the kid isn’t hooked on the internet.
  • Parental Control on Settings Configuration: In Easyfone Star settings like contact number addition or deletion, adding reminders, setting ‘Do not disturb’ time windows according to schedule of kids via ‘Care Touch’ service which is accessible only on company’s website.
  • Occasional Spy-check: This kids only phone has a feature of auto receive and so parents can check at any given point what the kid is doing or talking.
