A first grade kid has developed an iPhone app called the “Toaster Pop” and even pitched to investors about his creation, as the new generation begins to take over technology.

Seven-year-old Connor Zamary developed the Toaster Pop game, a family-friendly iPhone game that lets players smear butter on a toast, then followed by jams and jams. It also has a special kind of spread called “The Works.” The app is being sold on the iTunes App Store for 99 cents.

“He pitched investors, made his own PowerPoint, filled out the paperwork for his LLC all by himself, has done conference calls with the West Coast developers,” said Craig Zamary, Connor’s father, in an interview with tech website CNET.

The young developer admitted that he was nervous when he was talking to the investors, but he still presented his ideas before a company’s board of directors.

When Connor was asked where his idea came from, he said that it came when his father told him about an old-fashioned toaster that he never seen before. The idea to create an iPhone app instantly came to him, “where toast would pop out of the toaster, land on a plate and you would have to butter it with butter.”

According to Craig Zamary, the Toaster Pop iPhone app is already being downloaded by iOS users around the world, reaching about 18 countries in the past few days.

The boy said that he’s going to save the money for college and donate some of it to Africa.
