Cool Mom Tech explained it best: “Rest assured One Globe Kids is not a social network–there’s no way to communicate through the app, but it will still feel that way to your kids, which they’ll think is cool. So as a parent I can let my kids freely explore the globe and learn to appreciate and respect people who live differently than we do.”

One Globe Kids is kidSafe certified. We follow the “Know What’s Inside” best practices for kid’s apps.

This app:

  • Does NOT collect any personal information from users. Users can upload their own image, record their own voice (counting to 10 in Kirundi, for example!), and put themselves on the globe within the app, but this data stays on the device and is NEVER transmitted.
  • Has NO advertisements in it.
  • Does NOT include any social media links or plug ins.
  • Does NOT link to other websites.
  • DOES have optional in-app purchases.
  • Has a positive view of the world, regardless the race, nationality, education level, gender, or socio-economic background.
  • Believes diversity is beautiful and essential.

There are a total of eight friends at this time: Gabou and Valdo from Haiti, Jenissa from Burundi, Floor and Lars from The Netherlands, Luna and Lucian from NYC, and Aji from Indonesia.  The developer,Anne Glick, plans to be adding more friends periodically and has two in the works right now.
