Award-Winning Children's book — Troomi—Safe Smartphone for Kids

Troomi—Safe Smartphone for Kids

Is your child ready for a safe phone that does more?

Maybe they need apps for school, church or their favorite hobby. Or maybe they want a 50-megapixel camera that takes incredible photos. Perhaps you want them to learn responsible Internet usage with a safe browser!

Instead of limiting your child to talk and text, Troomi provides parents with the option of adding a safe browser and third-party apps that have been curated for safety. Give them the tools they need to safely thrive while preparing them for the future. Troomi devices provide the flexibility necessary to graduate children from one level of responsibility to the next based on needs and maturity—a phone that grows with your child without having to replace hardware.

Our mission is to provide kids with guardrails for safety and opportunities for growth, learning, personal discovery and preparation for the future. We do this by creating solutions that empower children to pursue their dreams vigorously through a safe, balanced relationship with technology.

We invite you to join us in that mission!
