Your kid's smartest assistant: OK Shelly!
Relay is more than a communication solution. It’s more than a walkie talkie and better than a kids phone. And the best way to show that is to see it in action, so we created a video showing how Relay can free our kids from tempting screen time and have fun using their imaginations, connecting with the people around them—even on a gloomy Saturday “spoiled” by clouds and rain.
Many of us on the Relay team are parents who can appreciate Relay firsthand. Seeing your child seize freedom and exercise their independent play muscles is a powerful and joyful experience, especially when you know they’re still only a button-press away.
And that peace of mind goes both ways. When kids can engage with their parents, whether in the next room or a few streets away, it enables connection without sacrificing independence. And it makes it easier to talk. One silly question may not be grounds for a phone call to Mom and Dad, but Relay is easy, casual, and fun—for silly questions and serious ones.
Even during rainy days spent indoors, Relay can enable kids to step away from screen time find joy in connecting with the people around them. When kids are surrounded by screens, apps, smart assistants, and games, they don’t get bored the way they used to—the kind of bored that inspires pretend play, family time, and making their own fun.That makes it hard to pull away and engage with other people, and harder to engage in creative play.
Relay is a different kind of technology. It brings people together without distractions or screens to get in the way. Check out the video below to see how Relay can make play meaningful, in rain or shine.
