    Why Pinwheel is the Best Kid-Friendly Smartphone:

    Remote Parental Controls

    Pinwheel goes with them, the control stays with YOU.

    Best Kid-Friendly Smartphone

    Pinwheel helps your kid live their best life.

    Freedom to Choose

    Pinwheel works with many cell service providers.

    Real Apps

    No app store on the phone


    Only parents have access to our curated app boutique: an ever-growing library of real, useful, parent-approved apps.

    All our apps are evaluated against our therapist-created criteria to be kid-safe and non-addictive.

    Teach Them Well

    Pinwheel holds your boundaries


    How can you give your kid a phone to carry with them unsupervised and know they are still following your guidance?

    Use our Days/Modes and Routines to allow what is ok and when, to teach them the good habits they need.

    Contact Safelist

    No "Stranger Danger"


    Pinwheel has a build-in safelist. That means the phone can only call and text with phone numbers you add.


    You also decide which contacts are available when. No calling friends at 2am, but they can still reach you.

    "After using Pinwheel for a few weeks my daughter is so happy with the digital independence she is developing; and I love that I get to have peace of mind knowing she is doing so in a safe and enriching digital environment."

    "Someone FINALLY DID IT! 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…."


    S. Kimmel

    "Recently acquired a Pinwheel phone for my daughter and I can't say enough good things about it.


    Loving the fact I'm able to teach my child about how phones are tools and not toys."
