In The Beginning…
Since 2013, we have researched, designed and passionately developed My Little Explorer to give parents a product that they can use to educate their child about the importance of staying safe and the technology to be alerted when their child wanders away. Interactive learning is one of the best ways to help children retain what they have learned and My Little Explorer does this in a fun and innovative way!
Founder Ami Davies created Little Explorer after her own personal experience of becoming separated from her daughter Jaymie. She embarked on a journey to create a child safety solution that would help to prevent this happening to other children and parents.
Ami spent three months speaking to parents, childminders and grandparents and soon realised that there was a real need for a safety solution that didn’t track or tag a child but built on existing trust, and respect between the child and their guardian.
Jaymie’s love of story time with her Mum lead to Ami realising lessons could be learned through a simple story and association with a character. This lead to the development of the book to introduce learning around the importance of staying close and to encourage wearing of the wristband.
