Yip Yap is an Austin based startup solving a problem that parents around the globe experience each day at an increasing rate – the reluctant yet repeated handing of their smartphone to their young kids.
Yip Yap is changing the way kids (and their parents) do wireless! They created a complete solution that combines age-appropriate hardware for kids with easy-to-use parent controls in the form of a smartphone app. Parents can use Yip Yap to manage and curate connections to content and contacts directly from their own phone.
Yip Yap’s first product, Pipsqueak is a Bluetooth and WiFi enabled phone which launched in 2016 and has been well received by hundreds of users. The Yip Yap team is hard at work building out an ecosystem of features and functions that will continue to delight kids, their parents and their loved ones.
