The Christmas Present Children & Parents Will Love This Year

The award-winning Yoto Player is perfect for children up to 12 years old, and parents will love it too – there are more than 1,000 stories, songs, and activities available to purchase. From recording family members reading bedtime stories to establishing healthy sleeping patterns, its features extend far beyond other models on the market. Here’s a bit more about the brand, what the player can do, and why it’s the perfect gift for families this Christmas.

Created in partnership with Yoto Player

The Brand

Yoto Player is an award-winning audio player that gives families access to over 1,000 entertaining cards from some of the world’s greatest creators. Designed to inspire a love of stories and encourage creative play for all children up to 12, it can even help establish healthy night-time routines. The latest third-generation model features a new acoustically engineered speaker, so it sounds better than ever, and kids can enjoy up to 24 hours of interaction on a single charge. Not only that, but the in-built room thermometer also reassures parents that their newborn is sleeping comfortably. Best of all, it’s screen-free, so there are no ads interrupting story time, and there are no microphones.

The Content

There’s a plethora of stories that can be loaded onto the player using Yoto cards to spark imaginations and engage inquisitive minds. You’ll recognise classic children’s authors, such as Roald Dahl, Beatrix Potter, Judith Kerr and Julia Donaldson, and much-loved favourites like Thomas & Friends and Paddington Bear. Kids will enjoy the wide range of Disney stories suitable for all ages, alongside pre-school favourites like Paw Patrol and Peppa to engage the youngest members of the family. Why not explore Yoto Originals which include activities, songs and educational cards such as the Solar System and BrainBots: The Human Body. Kids will love singing along to rock royalty such as The Beatles and Queen, new releases to the Yoto platform. Yoto Radio is accessible via the player's right hand button, and the spectacularly popular Yoto Daily podcast delivers fun facts and activities every day of the week. If that isn't enough, families can even record their own bedtime stories through the Make Your Own function in the app.

The Other Features

Yoto Player can help with bedtime too; it encourages kids of all ages to wind down at the end of the day with a calming collection of sleepy stories, songs and white noise. Even better, there are free sleep sounds included on the Yoto app and via the free Sleep Radio. Plus, through the app, you can play the entire library wherever you are, set bedtime and wake up alarms, and use sleep timers. All the Yoto cards are saved on the app, so if you lose one, you can still find it in the library or play them in the car for the whole family to enjoy.

The Add-Ons

There’s a handy range of accessories to choose from, including a wireless charging dock, card cases in various colours, wireless and wired headphones, and a card pouch. We love the Adventure Jacket, a silicone carry-coat which fits snugly over the Yoto Player, protecting it from wear and tear, and making it easier to carry to take with you on the go.
