TIMIO | The educational audio and music player for kids

March 20, 2020

AD | Gifted Partnership

There is no denying that our children are growing up in a digital age. With access to screens all around them. From TVs, computers, phones and tablets. Whilst digital technology can play its part in interactive learning, it is something that our children should not rely upon for entertainment and engagement.

Piglet like most preschoolers loves to learn with visual, audio and musical prompts. Not wishing to turn to screens we have been exploring ways in which we can engage her with different subject matters. The TIMIO educational audio and music player for kids is something that she has been enjoying at home.

TIMIO educational audio and music player

TIMIO are passionate about giving kids the best start possible in life by encouraging interactive, play-based learning without the use of harmful screens. Studies have shown that excessive screen time in young children is linked to sleep disturbances and poorer language skills, so we’re excited to bring a healthier and smarter alternative to the market.

Unlike other kids’ audio players, TIMIO is fully interactive and grows with kids from infancy into grade school while developing their vocabularies and imagination. Each TIMIO device includes 20 discs of curated educational and engaging material on various subjects for multiple ages – the alphabet, fairy tales, nursery rhymes, numbers, lullabies, colours and time are just a few of the disc categories.

Benefits of TIMIO

  • Screenless edutainment: TIMIO offers a safe and fully interactive experience to educate and entertain children without worrying about screen time.
  • Easy to use: As it requires no Internet connection or set-up, children can play and learn safely with TIMIO without adult supervision.
  • Great for travel: With its handy headphone jack and disc storage bag, TIMIO is the perfect travel companion for car or plane rides.
  • Learning new languages: TIMIO is available in 6 different languages: English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, and Chinese, making it a great tool for introducing additional languages early on.

How is TIMIO different from other kids audio players?

TIMIO puts the child in control. They are able to choose the disc they would like to play. Unlike other audio players, TIMIO is also versatile and can play nursery rhymes, teach vocabulary, transform into a music instrument and play fairy tales all in one device. If that wasn’t enough TIMIO is interactive, with the device asking questions to reinforce the learning process.

What we thought of TIMIO

Like any parent, I opened up the TIMIO player before I gave it to Piglet. Setting it up by adding 3x AA batteries, before opting to have a little play myself. Which was lovely to see how easy it was to use and change the discs etc. It’s wonderful to see that the set includes 20 different discs as standard, allowing Piglet to select from a variety of words, music and stories.

Piglet loved seeing this set up in her bedroom when she arrived home from preschool. Quickly showing her how to switch it on and change the discs I headed off to make the tea. Within minutes I could hear her counting, singing and laughing whilst playing with the TIMIO.

With a handy pouch to keep all the discs together, it makes it portable for her to take around the house and in the car.
