Kidʼs Keitai is designed especially for elementary school children in Japan where there is a demand for children's mobile phones to ensure their safety. The parentʼs smartphone can directly access the Kid's Keitai if needed to edit contacts, schedule, and change various settings. The main body is designed to minimize screen damage and the water-proof design allows the phone to be cleaned with foamy hand soap if it gets dirty. The soft and rounded form fits easily in a child's hand.
