About

Kidoneye is a revolutionary visibility vest with 15 safety and anti-lost features. It is designed to prevent child loss and to increase safety and boost visibility in everyday situations. Use Kidoneye when your children commute, travel, cycle, and approach crowds to keep them visible and safe.

 Kidoneye offers 6 products in 1. It is a comprehensive product that works as a substitute to individual visibility vests, safety harnesses, personal alarms, LED lights, ID bracelets, and waist bags. Instead of racking up a big bill with 6 costly products, buy one multifunctional product that does it all.

1 Kidoneye vest replaces 6 other products!

Put it this way — would you ever want to find yourself wishing you used Kidoneye? When it comes to children, we believe it's always best to be prepared, especially given these missing child statistics...

Countless children are reported missing around the world each year. While some countries are considered safer than others, there is always a risk of child loss or abduction.

These figures do not even include children who go missing for less than 15 minutes—which can feel like an eternity for parents and kids alike.

Prevent your child from getting lost or going missing. The risk of child loss can be minimized with a few careful precautions. Kidoneye allows you to take multiple safety measures with just one versatile product.

Why Kickstarter? Because crowdfunding helps small family startups bring projects to life! 

NEON VEST WITH REFLECTIVE ELEMENTS

The vest comes in neon yellow and pink to make your child stand out during the day. Reflective details boost visibility at night.


BUILT-IN LED LIGHTS

Coloured LED lights slide into special pockets in the front and back to increase visibility at night. Green front lights and red back lights also allow you to see where your child is going, whether closer or further away. Set lights to flash mode with one click for extra visibility on the road. LED lights are flexible and lightweight so they will not disturb your children.

HIDDEN QUICK-RELEASE PANIC ALARM 

It can be tough for small voices to call for help. That's why Kidoneye features a built-in 120db personal panic alarm. Teach your kid that when in danger or lost, they can quickly release the personal panic alarm to point out their location.

We also designed a quick-release emergency pocket so that children can activate the alarm in just 2 seconds. Unlike conventional alarm systems where the cord must be found and pulled, our invention allows children to grip and tug the alarm itself. Since the alarm is clipped to the vest, it is easy to disable and cannot be lost. 

As with all of the vest's features, the personal alarm can be detached and re-attached for you to use as needed

DISCREET SAFETY HARNESS

Sometimes, you need to keep your kids close. When crowds are thick, your hands are full, or traffic is unpredictable, attach the clip-on leash to the built-in safety harness

The harness consists of an adjustable belt strap threaded through a built-in belt loop. It is positioned around the waist for durability and hidden inside the vest to remain discreet.

Clip the swivel carabiner onto a sturdy loop on the back of the vest as needed. The other end of the leash is designed with a wrist loop.

*Buckles, loop, and swivel carabiner are made of sturdy YKK plastic.

The system also comes with an aluminum carabiner so that when both your hands are occupied, you can tether it to a stroller, purse, or belt loop.

SECRET ID POCKET 

Use a secret ID pocket to safely store emergency information on a waterproof card inside the vest. Children who are lost may forget details like phone numbers. Children who are equipped with an ID card can help a trusted adult or police officer find you faster.

TELL-APART CARDS

Slide unique tell-apart cards into the mesh pocket on the back of the vest to make your child stand out. The Velcro closure keeps the card in place while children play. 

Select from a set of colourful pre-printed cards, or use blank cards to get creative and make your own!  Whether a sports team logo, school emblem, or imaginary animal, the possibilities are limitless.

SPECIAL NEEDS & MEDICAL ALERT CARDS

Fill out special needs and medical alert cards for children with allergies, autism, ADHD, or other conditions. 

Special needs (like Autism, ADHD) and  medical awareness cards can be used for public awareness, but also contain customized emergency and contact information on the back of the card.

*All cards are waterproof and tear-proof. 

SMART SPIN SECURITY ZIPPER

We designed a security zipper that flips and tucks away inside the vest. This prevents the vest from coming undone during play or being removed by young children. It also deters strangers from unzipping the vest easily. In a dangerous situation, this feature can buy a few extra seconds and make all the difference.

STRATEGIC POCKETS

Safely store a GPS tracker or smart phone in the inner zip pocket. With that safely tucked away, let your child fill the two large exterior kangaroo pockets with toys, snacks, or whatever they love to carry.

TRAVEL-SIZE STUFF SACK

 We have sourced the best materials to bring our design to life: 

We have also ensured that the materials are stretchable and durable to withstand play, travel, and regular washing. Don't forget to remove electronics before washing! 

Kidoneye comes in two colours (neon yellow & neon pink) and four sizes for children aged 2 to 9. You will have the opportunity to select size and colour in a survey after the campaign. 

  *Please allow for 1cm-1/2 inch discrepancy in measurements due to stretchable fabric and hand-made measurements.

Use the features you need. Kidoneye comes with 15 features and gadgets that can be used in many combinations. Equip the vest with the gadgets that best fit the occasion or your children's needs. You can also use them separately, without the vest. 

After you make a pledge, you will receive a survey to determine the color and sizing of your order. Once we receive your survey and email address, we will send your e-books.

Kidoneye was invented by our family to bring a positive impact to yours. Our inspiration to create this vest came after losing both of our sons several times. We have always loved to travel. When our sons Lovro and Lenart came along, we wanted to pass on our love of travel on to them. But our eldest son Lovro got lost twice at age 4. 

The first time...

...was during a family vacation to Italy. One minute, he was beside us eating ice cream as we walked through a busy and narrow shopping street. The next moment, he was gone. We started to panic as well called for him. People started pointing down the street so we ran after him at full-speed. We finally found Lovro trembling and crying in a large square at the end of the street, where a woman stopped him from running into a major traffic intersection. Lovro had lost sight of us and ran to find us but didn't know that he was running away.

It was the scariest moment of our lives. We did not think it would happen to us or that it could ever happen again, let alone in our hometown.

The second time...

...we were walking along the river through the historic old town of Ljubljana when Lovro disappeared into the crowd. We searched frantically, worried he had fallen into the river or that someone had taken him. We searched the busy streets and crowded market. After 20 minutes, he was still missing so we called the police. Finally, we found him at a store in one of the squares with a gentleman. The police finally arrived and told us there are many cases of child loss like this, though most end happily. Even so, it is still a terrifying ordeal.

Our youngest son...

Lenart has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and tends to run after things. This brings extra challenges when we travel, commute, or go to public events. We previously dressed our kids in bright clothing, used safety harnesses, and took GPS trackers when we traveled but we could not find one product that combined multiple safety measures. 

Left without a proper and comprehensive solution, we decided to create our own. 

One day, Boris came home from the playground with Lovro and Lenart with a simple idea—to make a kids' visibility vest with some sort of sign on the back to distinguish them. 

After both conducting research and collaborating on design, Urška used her fashion design background to sew prototypes at home. Our Kidoneye design has evolved over the course of 1.5 years. Each prototype incorporated new features inspired by our experiences as parents.

Lovro was biking one night and disappeared into the dark, so we added LED lights. After watching the Halle Berry film Kidnap, we added the smart spin security zipper to delay abducted children from being undressed. We also invented the quick-release emergency pocket after seeing our children struggle to activate it in under 2 seconds.

It has taken 7 prototypes to create a final product that contains all the key safety features

First, we tested prototypes on our own kids. Then we asked friends and local families to test the product locally and while traveling abroad. We received great feedback, especially from families who travel often or have lost a child before.

Seeing an opportunity, we scraped together all our savings and put our house-building on hold to develop Kidoneye and finance this Kickstarter campaign.

We have self-funded Kidoneye's design, development, and Kickstarter campaign. Our final prototype has been tested and finalized with manufacturers. 

We are ready to begin production! 

Every dollar pledged henceforth will go towards manufacturing, quality assurance, packaging, and shipping the first batch of Kidoneye vests.

Kidoneye has been tested by families and children around the world. It's been used in Disneyland, Florida and Legoland, Germany plus many more. Here's what people have to say about the vest...

When will the order arrive?

We plan to ship orders in time for gifts and travels during the 2019 holiday season.

Are all components child-proof?

The vest does not contain small components or loose strings that pose risk to small children.

Do I need to use all gadgets at once?

No, you can insert and remove all of the gadgets according to your needs. You can even use them individually, without the vest!

What if the vest is the wrong size when we get it?

Please order the size you think your kid will be in December 2019. To exchange sizes, customers must return unused vest within one month or receipt at their own expense. We will send one size bigger for free.

Are taxes and additional fees applicable?

Our prices do not include VAT, GST, or other national taxes. Depending on your location, you may incur additional fees, taxes, or duties. As we are shipping these products worldwide, it is impossible for us to build these various costs into our display price. We recommend this import calculator tool to assist you in calculating additional costs.

International customers who are required to pay customs or duty will receive a notification and payment request from local customs authorities. Unfortunately, there is no legal way for us to get around customs. Once you make the required payment, your order will be processed for final delivery. Please note: Kidoneye cannot legally mark orders as gifts.

Can Kidoneye guarantee safety?

Kidoneye does not guarantee that children will not get lost or go missing. Kidoneye and its contents are designed to prevent loss and wandering but it cannot replace due parental attention. The product is not a substitute for parent or guardian care. It is intended to assist parents in exercising due diligence in the care of their children. It is designed to facilitate child care, working in addition to adequate parental attention.

No product, program, or tool can guarantee to keep children safe or prevent abductions 100% of the time. Child safety is a personal responsibility. Parents, guardians, and members of the community must also work together to ensure children are safe, protected, and helped when needed.

Have other questions?

If you're wondering about something, perhaps others are too! We'd appreciate it if you emailed your question(s) to us at urska@kidoneye.com. We'll personally ensure your queries are answered.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks that can arise during a project like this. We have done our homework and are confident in our ability to produce and ship the products in a timely manner. We have created a highly qualified team of producers, partnered with leading manufacturers. The biggest potential challenge is that each Kidoneye vest is assembled from 27 components; if one component is out of stock or delayed, it could cause a delay in the delivery of the final product. However, we have left room for delays and put backup measures in place to minimize any issues.

We have put care and thought into preventing any issues such as supply chain risk and shipping risk. We also assure that will also work tirelessly to resolve issues, should anything go wrong.
