kajeet takes home yet another parenting award

kajeet has impressed a set of parents. This time it’s the folks at iParenting Media. They’ve handed out awards and kajeet, the cell phone service which targets tweens, has won for Excellent Products in the Safety category. This is in large part due to kajeet’s parental controls, including the ability to set when a phone can be used and the ability to block certain callers. It also presumably stems from kajeet’s GPS locator, a touchy issue which we discussed with CEO Daniel Neal a year and a half ago. After the jump, some accolades for kajeet. The judges on why they voted for kajeet:

“Kajeet does a great job of giving kids the feelings of self-confidence and respect that come with owning a cell phone,” said one iParenting Media Awards Reviewer. “It also helps parents feel safe and in control, because they can give their kids as much or as little freedom they need.” “This product is a great way to give parents peace of mind knowing that they can access their children when necessary,” said another iParenting Media Awards Reviewer. “It also allows children to contact their parents in case of an emergency.” “My favorite feature is the time-out blocks. They allow me to control what hours the phone can be used by my children, but still allow them access to us, their parents, in case of an emergency,” said the third iParenting Media Awards Reviewer.
Back in December kajeet took home the PTPA Media Inc. Seal of Approval for excellence in parenting products. Then in May they won an Honors award from the National Parenting Publications Awards. ]]>

    Thanks for the notice, Joe. I’m really proud of all the work the team here has accomplished. Nothing matters more to us than the accolades of parent groups and customers. I think there is wide consensus that kajeet is simply the safest cell phone for kids. Maybe this warrants giving us another star on your ratings page?! Again, thanks for keeping an eye on us. Wishing you all the best,
    –Daniel, CEO & Founder, kajeet
