Sweden-based Tinitell is a wearable, voice-controlled phone for kids that are too young to own a smartphone.

One of parents’ biggest fears is not knowing what their children are getting up to, but they also don’t want to end up smothering them. We’ve already written aboutFiLIP, the watch-sized communicator that helps parents stay connected to kids. Now Sweden-based Tinitell is a wearable, voice-controlled phone for kids that are too young to own a smartphone.

Self-described as the “world’s smallest mobile phone”, the device looks much like a wristwatch, except that it has no display. Instead, it comes equipped with a mic, speaker and SIM card slot, as well as a small CPU that turns it into a useable phone. Parents first connect it to their smartphone via Bluetooth to load numbers onto it as well as register it with their device. Kids can then simply press the button on their Tinitell’s face and say the name of the person they want to call. They can also receive calls through the device, but only from the numbers loaded by their parent. Parents can track the location of their child on their smartphone, as well as see a calling list.

Watch the video below, taken from the company’s successful Kickstarter campaign:

Tinitell offers functionality that connects parents with their children in an uncomplicated way, without any distrcting features. The devices come in 4 different colors — Aqua, Indigo, Charcoal and Coral — and currently cost USD 129. Could this kind of tracking capability be developed for older kids, who might want something more than just a phone on their wrists?
