Keeping your kids safe is our priority

Hello grown-ups!

We are coming up on our one year anniversary and wanted to take a moment to talk about one of the concerns we had as parents, which led us to start StoryBots: child safety in apps and online.

As parents ourselves, we take the safety of the children who use our apps very seriously. You’ve probably heard a lot of buzz about the concerns and pitfalls of app safety for children. It can be a really confusing and nerve-wracking experience to find safe, high-quality apps for your kids! That’s why we built StoryBots, from the ground up, with a focus on safety for our kids.

For starters, there is no advertising on StoryBots. Most importantly, while many apps build their business by tricking kids into making in-app purchases to buy coins or other virtual goods, we took a different approach. You pay one, low monthly fee and get unlimited access to everything in the StoryBots collection. No additional charges, no strange, unprotected links and no extra in-app purchases.

In addition, we want you to know that we invest heavily to ensure that we are fully compliant with the FTC’s Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) guidelines, designed to protect the privacy of your child’s information. We also follow all iTunes App Store rules for their new Kids section, and have the KidSafe+ Certification.

To help clear up some of the myths and mysteries surrounding app safety for kids, we put together this infographic, highlighting important facts you’ll want to keep in mind. Check out the simple solutions to help make your life as a parent easier, and have a safe, enjoyable time using technology with your kids.

You have our word that we will always keep safety at the top of our list. We are incredibly thankful that you’ve invited the StoryBots into your home and look forward to serving you in the future with great products that bring your families a big dose of happiness!

Happy Parenting!

New activity packet takes you Back to School — StoryBots Style!

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 2.29.17 PMTime to set your schedules (and alarms!), sharpen pencils, and pack lunches — the new school year is HERE!

The StoryBots have whipped up a new back to school themed activity packet, just in time for the first school bell of the year. This 22-page activity packet contains word searches, coloring sheets, word tracing, recipes and lots of fun crafts. Together with your kids, you can create and decorate a one-of-a-kind pencil holder (in three different ways!), and make a healthy after school snack.

The packet also features essentials for the school year — like name labels, a calendar to keep track of (and learn!) the days of the week, and customized bookmarks.
