Written by on May 19

Tinitell, a company that build miniature phones for children, that we saw pitch at the #sthlmtech meetup a few months ago – are now halfway through an already successful Kickstarter campaign.

According, to the company – their mission is to build a “wristphone that enables peace of mind for parents, and lets kids be kids.”

 As of today, there are 10 days left to run on the campaign, and they’ve already hit $122,000 of their $100,000 fundraising goal.

His son wanted to go outside and play, but he didn’t have a cell phone

“I came up with the idea for Tinitell when I was hanging out with a friend who is also a father,” says founder Mats Horn. “His son wanted to go outside and play, but he didn’t have a cell phone. He had lost a cell phone once before, and we didn’t feel like lending out our smartphones. Worst of all, we couldn’t join him outside because we were busy cooking dinner. His son ended up playing in his room with his iPad, and I thought that was sad.”
