Safe cell phone for kids
Martin flying a kite. February 2012.


The inspiration for Kytephone came while flying kites along the beautiful Californian coastline. As far as the kites flew freely in the sky, they were never far away. A simple tug on the wire and they would safely come back to us. We wanted to instil a similar feeling in parents and their young children in today's mobile-centric society. Kids already clamour to use smartphones, so we wanted to give them a responsible and safe way to use it.

We believe Kytephone is the easiest and safest way to prepare your young child for their mobile-centric future. It's a positive parenting tool that gives you the control to set the boundaries, instilling your children with the values you believe in.

About Us

We are a Canadian start-up based out of Toronto, Canada, although we got our start at the prestigious YCombinator Accelerator program in Silicon Valley. They continue to be a great partner with Kytephone. In Toronto, we are graciously supported by the Ryerson Digital Media Zone, a great organization that promotes tech entrepreneurship in Canada.
