Bloggers and Charities - Get In Touch!

We’ve been incredibly lucky of late to start working and collaborating with an amazing group of bloggers and charities for WATCHU Kids. As a company, it is of paramount importance to meet users face to face and get real feedback about our products. This venture had led to wonderful working relationships and also the chance to get involved in our local community.

When it comes to WATCHU it can be used almost anywhere globally. We’re looking for family/parent bloggers or review sites aimed at children’s products to get in touch, you can be anywhere where WATCHU is compatible! What we’d like to see from you is; your website, social media feeds, a short description of your core readers/followers, the age of your child/children and a little bit about yourself. It doesn’t matter if you have a small readership or a huge one! What’s important is enthusiasm and that our styles are compatible.

There are so many wonderful children’s charities that are doing incredible things. We have so far had the chance to work with two, one locally to us in Swansea, Thrive Cardiff, and another in Mansfield, Kool Kids. Both charities put the needs of unique children and young adults first and it has been very humbling getting to meet them and the children in person. We hope to help by providing an informative demonstration with parents and children about the WATCHU, as well as letting the children from the group use them during a play session. We then take on board all feedback from parents and care providers as well as the children to help us develop our products further. We can give special discounts to charities after a demonstration as well as look to accommodate a taster WATCHU for the group.

If any of the above sounds of interest to you either as an individual or a group then please do get in touch using the email bryony.hipkin@watchugps.com.

When developing the WATCHU we wanted to create a product that would help put parents mind at ease (as much as possible!) and give children a chance to develop independence, responsibility and most importantly have fun while being safe!

After getting some feedback from parents we had messages land in our inbox from families who had unique children. For them, the WATCHU was a crucial safety net for keeping them safe. Spurred on by the positive comments we were motivated to reach out to charitable groups to meet these parents and children face to face. We were thrilled at the response and last weekend we headed up to Mansfield to meet Kool Kids. The charity is a fantastic example of parents and volunteers coming together to make lives better for children. 

We had a great time making healthy smoothies, pasta for lunch and then joining in with the Crafts for Father's Day Gifts. We got stuck in painting ladybird door stops as the perfect handmade gift for dads, some were a little more abstract than others but it's the thought that counts! After lots of painting, we got to see first hand how WATCHU can help families and take that away with us to make our product even better. Jackson and Joshua acted as our very helpful demonstrators and were very keen to show off the mobile and pedometer functions - brace yourselves for active kids! We use the pedometer as a way to promote a healthy lifestyle and it helps burn some of that energy up for a better nights sleep.

We have more charities to visit in the upcoming weeks. If you are part of one, know one or would just like to get in touch then message us on Social Media or comment on here.
