What is Ollee?

It's not always easy to get children to open up, and that’s where Ollee comes in: to help you have those tricky conversations and to give you and your child extra support when you need it.

Ollee is a digital friend for children aged 8-11, created by Parent Zone and BBC Children in Need’s A Million & Me initiative

It can help your child explore feelings around subjects – like school, family, friends and the world – and support conversations about these with you, through connected accounts.

In the app, your chiild can select an emotion they’re feeling – maybe happy, sad, worried or something else – and it will give them ideas about what to do. Even if they’re not sure, Ollee will help them figure it out. With prompts such as, “I feel lonely”, “no one listens to me” or “I’m growing up”, Ollee can give your child supportive advice about that subject and how they feel. 

To use Ollee, parents need to set up an account. If your child does too, you can link your accounts together. By linking accounts, you can save and share Ollee’s advice and ideas together, helping to start conversations about feelings. You can also explore the different emotional scenarios your child might be experiencing – with tailored parenting advice. 

Please note: If your child doesn't have an email address, they can still use Ollee without an account (click: ‘I don’t have an email address’). But they won’t be able to use all of the app's full features.
