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 really love this phone for my 11 year old. I had a recent issue (most likely my own user error) and customer service gladly fixed it for me! So far the product and the customer service has been great!
I love pinwheel for my children! The customer service is outstanding! Literally, the best ever. I have yet to have a problem that they don't solve in 5 minutes. The phone is fabulous for kids. You choose what apps, what contacts and what times they can use the phone. No web browser at all! But data or WIFI that works with gps apps, banking apps, school apps and more! Seriously, 100% satisfied with the phone, the company, the customer service!
Thank you for creating a phone for our tween kids and working so hard on a product both parents and kids want! It’s the perfect phone for my 10 year old. 💗. Thank you for shipping it in time for her birthday!!
