Do you remember your first cell phone?! I was 16 years old and finally got the permission from my parents and raised enough of my own money, to purchase one! It was a Nokia with a pink phone case! Very simple, and looking back bare bones compared to what we have now, but boy was I THRILLED to be a cell phone owner. I wasn’t cool enough, or old enough to have a pager so this was a big deal!

Here I am almost 20 years later prepping to purchase phones for my own children! We have little rules such as, they have to wait till middle school to add texting and all that jazz, where there is an actual need, but having a phone / device is so much more than communication.  My kiddos are gamers and on their free time we let them play for an allotted period of time on their devices.  I want a device that is reliable and sturdy but does not cost a fortune!

Today I wanted to share a platform with you that makes shopping for the right mobile phone for your child affordable and easy! Let me introduce you to Trademore.  Trademore offers a huge variety of devices to shop from at great prices.  You know how it is, kids can be careless and irresponsible! I love that Tradmore allows you to shop pre-owned devices that are reliable.  All devices go through a 30-point functional and cosmetic inspection.  Each and every device receives a 100 % inspection score.  This is so important to me! Even when you are paying less, no one wants to risk wasting their money on junk!!

    Sounds like such a good site! I hate giving my kids phones, but it seems like in this day and age they need one. My youngest doesn’t have one yet-but I will check out this site when it’s time for him to get one.

    Thankfully, since we homeschool, we don’t need to worry too much about phones for both kids. They just have an older model iphone to use for emergencies.

    its not going to be long before my daughter would need a phone when she heads to middle school in a year’s time, so reading your post has got me ready and prepared for when she does need one.

    It’s always A struggle to figure out what to do with a little one and a cell phone. Right now we’re keeping his contact with one minimal, but know that someday he’s going to need one for emergencies. This looks like a great option for when he gets older.

    This has to be a pretty big decision. I don’t have children but am amazed at how young I see kids with phones now. It’s yet another decision for parents (when, how, what).

    People always look at me strange when i tell them that i got my first phone when i was 9 (im 22 now). I was a lock-key child, meaning i let myself in after school while my parents were still at work, so me having a cellphone was for emergencies and stuff like that.

    It is so hard to decide when the right time is for your child to have a phone! My sister got one much younger then i did. I just think it is becoming more necessary!

    Okay, so I actually got my first cell phone at 9 years old and I can remember how excited I was for a black and white, brick motorola phone! My young family members have phones at 7 with full internet/data access and it totally freaks me out.
