HEALTHY TECH HABITS

Help our next generation build a healthy relationship with technology without the distractions of social media and unlimited internet access. Choosing Voco helps kids span the gap between no-phone and a smartphone by creating healthy tech habits early. 

LET KIDS BE KIDS LONGER

Give your kids a durable device that lets them be independent while enabling you to contact them when you need to. Voco's voice call and voice-to-text dictation provide key features of a cellular device so you can elongate the time until your child needs a smartphone.

TECH FOR ALL AGES

A sophisticated design means that Voco is appropriate for children of all ages. Customizable contacts allow the device's functionality to progress as a child grows into new stages of technical maturity.

Expert's Guide

Child psychology and technology experts advocate to wait until eight grade to give children a smartphone, but that's difficult in today's tech-dependent society. Help our children grow into healthy relationships with technology using an expert-recommended phased approach.

Talk First

Primary Caregivers

Add Friends

 

Talk with kids about healthy tech habits. Customize the Voco parent-child agreement to what "healthy" means to your family. Each Voco is delivered with kids and technology expert workbook to guide you through this new transition.

Set parents and other primary caregivers as contacts using the Voco companion app that can be securely downloaded to multiple phones. Turn on and off contacts depending on days and times so your child knows exactly who to when.

When your child has mastered using Voco to communicate with primary caregivers, add in groups of friends. Experts suggest coordinating with other parents to set collective boundaries for times of communication.
