Kietoparao. Screen-Free Educational Kits. 20 games in 7 oz

$24,862

Bilbao, 4 pm. Marc's restaurant.

Martina started throwing a tantrum. My adorable 4-year-old girl threw herself into the floor and started screaming for her tablet. It was the first time. I had taken her tablet away without warning her. Her intense reaction worried me. 

Hello Kickstarters, do you have kids in your life? 

Have you experienced a similar situation with a child you love? 

This chapter is part of my life.  Welcome to Kietoparao

My name is María and Martina is my 6 year old daughter. After that day I started researching how the use of screens affect kids' development. I got very worried, even scared, by the consequences that can have prolonged use of technology: anxiety, depression, lack of self-esteem, etc.

As a mother I had to do something. And this is why we are here. Kietoparao was born to address a parent's need: have coffee, eat at a restaurant, travel, sit in a waiting room... and have calm kids who aren't glued to a smartphone. 

Kietoparao is a fun and educational kit to beat screens. The idea was to replicate the characteristics of a smartphone in a kit: lightweight, lots of entertainment & always in your bag or your pocket. 2 different kits with a lot of entertainment ready to go, to have fun :). Recommended for kids +4 years old and more.


A LITTLE SENSE OF HUMOR IS ESSENTIAL TO LIFE.

“Kietoparao” is often used in Spain to ask children to remain calm for a while. It was important to us to have a funny name:  as little sense of humour makes life way more enjoyable! Now, our kids ask us their Kietoparao when we get to a restaurant.


We have a clear mission. At Kietoparao, we support parents who want to educate kids about the responsible use of technologies. We are not against Technology.  On the contrary, when used the right way technology can be a great educational tool. It is our responsibility to show kids when and how to use it. We believe that it is important to not exclude kids from participating in family life and making social connections in coffee shops or restaurants where the main purpose is to share & spend quality time with friends and loved ones. That's why Kietoparao was born. 

Our goal is to become an educational complement by providing real alternatives to screens. Just look around you at the impact of screens on adults:  couples who do not look at each other on a date, friends who are only talking through messages, etc.   

 The rest of the team ;)

HOW TO SUPPORT US 


1 KIETOPARAO SOLD = 1 FAMILY IMPACTED

Shipping is a long, complicated process, and we’re focusing on avoiding pitfalls that happen when setting shipping fees upfront.

Following the lead of a lot of other toy Kickstarter campaigns, we will add on the shipping cost through our pledge manager after the campaign has ended and you’ve given us your shipping details. This will be done at cost, so we won’t make any money from shipping.

We have identified a shipping partner. We have identified the approximate shipping cost to be in the US$5-19 range per unit  depending on your location. This is not including tax and duty fees in certain countries, which are out of our control.

Right now we are tentatively charging a minimum of US$5. In our best estimation we should charge you an additional $10-15 depending on your country. With the minimum volumes, here is the information we have right now:

  • USA, Canada: US$ 19.00
  • Spain: US$ 6.00   
  • Europe: US$ 14.00
  • Australia, New Zealand: US$ 19.00
  • Rest of World: US$ 19.00

Depending on the volumes that we’ll have to ship to each country, we may decide to send a bulk shipment for local distribution which may help cut the shipping price even further.

We will always keep shipping information transparent and work hard to make the process as easy as possible. We will try to give you more details on shipping cost and time as we have more information on the subject. 

Risks and challenges

We have already invested more than US$50,000 of our savings in carrying out the first tests, prototypes, web ...

We have produced 300 units of the minimum viable product that are available for imminent shipment and we have already worked & selected all the suppliers.

As founders this is our 6th company. We have a lot of experience in making things happen. We know many unexpected bumps will come along the way, but we have the experience to mitigate risks.
Besides, we have been testing Kietoparao products & operations for more than a year, working with children, with educational psychologists ....

You are in good hands with us.
