myFirst Unveils Four Exciting New Products, Pioneering Safe and Enriching Tech for Malaysia Kids

Technology is a vital aspect of our everyday lives in the fast-paced digital age we live in today. Acknowledging the necessity of striking a balance between embracing the digital world and ensuring our kids are safe, myFirst introduces an array of four new and innovative kids-friendly gadgets.

The brand’s mission is to create innovative gadgets that cater to the unique needs of children while keeping parents in mind. As parents and educators, we are often faced with conflicting information on the impact of gadgets on children.

Some studies point to negative effects on well-being in many areas, while others speak of the potential for learning and growth.

To enhance this safe technological journey for children, myFirst understands the critical need for kid-safe technology solutions and is commited to ensuring that children are exposed to technology and engaged in meaningful ways.

To kick off, myFirst Circle, a social community app for kids links nearly 30,000 users across 100 countries and receives major updates with exciting interactive features, including Momojis for expressive communication and a Knock-Knock feature for sharing real-time family fun moments.

myFirstCircle was launched in Jan 2023 as its founder saw a gap in a digital platform that allows children to socialise in a safe and controlled environment.

Available on both myFirst’s smartwatch and mobile phone app, myFirst Circle 2.0 introduces a slew of fun interactive features, including Momojis that let kids express their feelings through moving emojis and Knock-Knocks where kids can immediately respond to parents’ online nudges through a short video or photo.

A new smart location tracker offers parents real-time insights into their children’s activities and locations, providing parents with peace of mind throughout the day.

G-Jay Yong, myFirst Founder said, “We wanted to let children explore the world of social media while ensuring we are there to guide them along the way. Today, we are proud to introduce myFirst Circle 2.0, along with new devices – myFirst Fone R2, myFirst Frame Doodle, and myFirst Frame Live.

myFirst Fone R2 offers an incredibly modern design paired with a stunning display while myFirst Frame Doodle is an addition that not only enhances children’s digital experiences but also empowers grandparents to effortlessly connect with their grandchildren, fostering meaningful family connections.”

He adds, “Through Circle, I frequently check in on my daughter to stay connected with her daily activities, whether it’s during lunch, before bedtime, or while I’m working long hours or on overseas business trips. The inspiration behind the Knock-Knock feature is my desire to share these moments effortlessly.

Now, I can monitor her and she responds with delightful updates, like enjoying a bowl of strawberries at home. It’s a simple yet powerful way for us to bridge the distance and feel close, no matter where we are.”

Previously, myFirst Fone R1, S3 and R1s, the first rounded 4G LTE music smartwatch phones were released into the market in November 2020 (R1), December 2021 (R1s) and February 2023 (S3) as a technology that empower kids while keeping them safe.

Additionally, in line with the audio product range, the brand also offered myFirst Headphones BC Wireless, BC Wireless Lite, myFirst CareBuds and myFirst Headphones AirWaves which provide the experience of open-ear listening. This technology ensures that audio levels are set at an appropriate volume to protect a child’s ears while still providing an enjoyable learning experience.
