Rogers Firefly: The First Cellphone For Kids


Rogers has come out with the first cellphone for the little ones: the Firefly.

This little thing makes it very easy for small ones to call daddy and mommy and it can hold up to 20 other phone numbers in its digital phone book.

The Firefly also has a button where a child could easily call 9-1-1 or the appropriate emergency number.

It has a 150 minute talk time and a 100 hours standby time. Included is a protective case and backpack clip, so the kids can carry it with them, and a travel charger.

The Rogers Firefly weighs only 56g.

I think this is great for parents who are concerned about the safety of their children or those who'd like to give their children a phone.

My only concern is that we don't of the long term effects of cellphone use on adult brains let alone that of a growing child.

Besides that it looks like a very good product and a neat gadget since it really is the first of its kind.
