Amsterdam-based Peekabond, a platform that helps build bonds with family and loved ones remotely, announced on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, that it has released a new app that uses playful video messaging to keep children and families engaged.
The company raised funding in early 2021 and a small follow-on round last month from a group of angel investors, including Daniel Gebler, founder and CTO of online supermarket unicorn Picnic.
Peekabond helps global families to bond
The summer holiday is the time of the year that everyone looks forward to, reconnecting and spending some quality time with family. However, many working parents, expat parents, divorced parents, etc. still wonder how they may responsibly occupy their children without letting them play computer games and sit in front of screens all day.
This is where Peekabond steps in. It is specifically designed for families with young children to feel connected to loved ones. The company claims to be the world’s first asynchronous video messaging app with science-based games that has the solution to turn screen time into family time.
