Why do you need my child's information?


We ask you for information on your child to appropriately tailor the experience to them. By addressing them in the app by their real name helps to build engagement. Age may be used to analyze activities to ensure we continue to build age appropriate content. We do not share you or your child's information, all data is depersonalized and managed in aggregate. For more information on our privacy policy or data usage, please contact us at home@iamKIDICTED.com.

Who is Kidictive?


Kidictive Inc. are the creators of KIDICTED™. We are excited to use technology to help get kids 'addicted' to the real world around them. Kidictive was founded by Michelle Gorman and Laura McLaughlin in response to our parental concerns around the constant "battle” with our kids over screen time and how their ”addiction” was impacting their physical and mental health, dynamics in our home and social skills. It quickly became apparent that these concerns were not unique to us and were at the forefront of many parents thoughts.




How can I learn more... how can I help you learn more?


We love to share our story and our mission, almost as much as we love to hear your ideas. Although our product roadmap is hammered out, we don't want to miss out on an important parent or child experience that might make or break you trying out our product. Please send us a message on our website, post on our social media or email us at home@iamKIDICTED.com.




When will KIDICTED be available?


The KIDICTED™ game is currently in development and we are expecting to launch in September 2019.




I heard there was a Kickstarter campaign. Tell me more...


Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that helps creators bring their projects to life. The biggest hurdle for us to launch KIDCTED™ is building the app, it is expensive and takes time, even to get us to an MVP (minimum viable product - a techie term for the most basic version we can create to get users testing it). Most of our Kickstarter funds will go to getting the game to you as quickly as possible. We successfully funded our campaign in June 2019 and are busy completing the final components of the app with the funds.
