 Circles of Trust

In today’s world, it’s important that parents understand the challenges of exposing gadgets to their kids. Some highlight negative effects on children's well-being and others emphasise the potential for learning and growth. In a world where these conflicting reports surround the impact of gadgets on children, myFirst has stood out in this space to bridge the gap between technology, education, and family values.

Launched in 2018, myFirst addresses the need for a digital space where children can interact safely while enjoying meaningful connections. With nearly 10 device categories, including watch phones, cameras, earbuds, 3D pens, sketch boards, and headphones, myFirst products are now available in over 42 countries including Singapore, Japan, Korea, Sweden, Spain, UK and the USA, just to name a few.

At the forefront of myFirst’s innovative approach is myFirst Circle, a community app for kids that has connected nearly 30,000 users across 100 countries, providing a secure platform for authentic social engagements. With the start of 2024 - marking new beginnings and innovation, myFirst is now thrilled to introduce myFirst 2.0 Circle, accompanied by the launch of 4 cutting-edge devices: myFirst Fone R2, myFirst Voice 2, myFirst Frame Doodle, and myFirst Frame Live.

Today on Open For Business, I’m joined in the studio by G-Jay Yong, Founder of myFirst Circle to understand the inspiration behind myFirst’s products, the impact of gadgets on children's development and what myFirst has in store for 2024 and beyond.
