Why thousands of families trust us to help navigate their technology journey

It doesn't have social media. It doesn't have an Internet browser.

But it does have apps that have been selected by you and vetted by the Pinwheel team. It looks just like a regular Android phone and has been great for my teenage daughters."

I can honestly say I’ve never been more impressed with a smartphone built for kids. This one has a HIGHLY curated list of apps you can approve, and set different modes throughout the day to open up different types of apps like music at night or reading during school. You HAVE to check this one out if you are in the market.

I reccomend Pinwheel wholeheartedly!

It is a wonderful products - safe and secure for kids. It is a such a great product to teach children to responsibly use technology as tools and not entertainment. The customer service is incredible! Always very friendly, helpful, and efficient.
