"Cell phones are high on most kids' holiday wish lists, and Firefly Mobile wants to make granting those wishes safe and affordable," said Kyle Cox, President, Firefly Mobile. "Our age-appropriate phones are the perfect gift for children and tweens, offering the features kids want and the control parents need."
