With kids becoming more and more tech-savvy, it is no surprise that a dedicated cellphone for kids has been invented. The 1stFone is a durable cellphone designed for children between the ages of four and nine to help "connect [a] child with the people they need."

Although it might seem like a step back to take away touch-screen, texting and Internet capabilities, the phone is a clever way to make sure your child can always reach a caretaker in the case of an emergency, with "just a good old fashioned voice call." For ease of use, the phones are pre-programmed with up to 12 numbers chosen by parents upon ordering.

This is a great way to introduce kids to the responsibility of owning a cell phone without having to buy an expensive full-fledged device that needs parental controls and monitored use. There are plenty of colors and styles to choose from and kids will love having their very own little gadget. Stats for Talk-Only Toddler Cellphones Trending: Older & Mild
