Only the size of a credit card, 1stfone was designed for children aged 4 to 9 to call important contacts.

1stfone is a credit card-sized mobile device designed for children aged 4 to 9 as an alternative to the smartphone, which may not be suitable for kids that young. While the 1stfone has no screen, internet access or texting capability, it does have customizable buttons and can be programmed with important numbers so that children can keep in touch with the people they need.

1stfone weighs just 40g and is delivered pre-programmed and ready‐to‐use straight out of the box. It is easy to operate as kids just press a name button to make a voice call.
