Yip Yap is an Austin, TX 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.
The inventor of Pipsqueak who is one of our founders (and mom of four young kids) realized she was repeatedly handing her $600 smartphone to her kids to talk to their Dad when he was traveling and to watch videos of themselves taken on her phone and thought, “There must be a better way to do this.” When that thought met her husband, a wireless industry veteran of nearly 20 years, Yip Yap was born!
At Yip Yap we are changing the way kids (and their parents) do wireless! We have created a complete solution that combines age-appropriate hardware for kids with easy-to-use parent controls in the form of a smartphone app which parents can use to manage and curate connections to content and contacts directly from their own phone.
Yip Yap’s first product, Pipsqueak, 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.
The Yip Yap team is made up of some of the brightest and most accomplished talent the wireless industry has to offer, with team members across the U.S. and in China. We are dedicated to helping connect kids safely to the people and content they love, and invite you to join us in that effort.
Playtime is calling…!
