Yoto is a podcast and audiobook machine built for kids

  Yoto is a podcast and audiobook machine built for kids “Screen-free” has become a big buzzword among parents this past decade. It was a reaction to the proliferation of phones and tablets in children’s lives, but now it’s felt especially timely over the past year with so many kids spending their school days remote learning. Their little eyes need a break from staring at pixels. And, while many adults can turn to smart speakers for their audio entertainment, they may not be as comfortable putting one in their kid’s room. Enter a crop of audio products designed with children and their developmental needs in mind, like the $100 Yoto speaker. The Yoto Player is an enormously appealing piece of tech.

Yoto Player, an audiobook and podcast machine for kids, can now read bedtime stories based on many of your little ones' favorite Disney and Pixar movies. The storybooks feature bite-sized tales from the likes of The Lion King, Bambi, The Jungle Book, Finding Nemo, Toy Story 3 and The Incredibles.

The My First Disney Classics Bedtime Storybook is $5.99 and has a 16-minute running time. The Pixar My First Bedtime Storybook costs $5.99 and its collection of six stories runs for 12 minutes in total.

The device already had some Disney content on offer. Its 5 Minute Stories feature adventures with some of the company's most popular characters. However, adding more Disney storybooks could make Yoto a more enticing kid-friendly audio gadget for parents. Tonies, a similar system, has some Disney content too, including Monsters Inc., Frozen and Aladdin stories.
