Giving a cell phone to a younger child or a teen/tween is a good thing. It allows you to keep in touch with your child and makes it easier to know where they are, even if it's only within your neighborhood. The catch is that kids often don’t understand how a phone works and that using it too much can cost big money.

Firefly has a couple of new phones for kids that limit the people they can call and make it so parents can easily monitor the use of the phone. The new handsets are called the glowPhone and the flyPhone. The phones allow parents to limit the time the phones can be used and to limit text messages to only the numbers programmed into the phones memory.

The glowPhone is for kids 5-8 and has keys for mom, dad, and emergency numbers. A five-way nav key scrolls menus and allows the kids to play games. The flyPhone is for kids 9-12 and has electro-luminescent keys that change between numbers and game controls. It also has a built-in camera, MP3 player, and FM Radio.
