Want to know which trends will be driving kids crazy in 2018? Then you need to ask the experts – the kids themselves!
PopJam – our kid-safe, content-sharing platform for under-13s – isn’t just a moderated and creative walled garden, it’s also a window into the minds of kids. As a COPPA and GDPR compliant product we don’t collect any data on our users, but we never stop learning from them or asking for their thoughts.

Children have always used art to explore the boundaries of their imagination whether that be with finger paint, sketching under the covers – or now, more recently, using digital art platforms and tablets.

On PopJam, we see this most clearly in the evolution of Original Characters.
So, what are they?
On PopJam, we don’t collect data on our users. Our kid-safe content sharing platform for under 13s is fully COPPA and GDPR compliant, and we have an active and creative community who love to offer their thoughts on the digital world around them.

Today we’re pleased to announce that TotallyAwesome, our joint venture in APAC, has entered a new stage in its journey, raising $2M to support its rapid growth in ASEAN and Australia.
