One of the biggest challenges of modern-day parenting is keeping our kids engaged and off screens. It is so easy to put them in front of a TV, tablet or phone when we need to get things done around the house, but we know that prolonged use of screens can lead to vision problems, trouble focusing and a shortened attention span.
We all know that kids love music, and allowing them to engage with music and play around with a safe device that gives them control to change from song to song is a great way to keep them entertained.
According to a press release, “Guided by Montessori education principles, Jooki is the only high-quality speaker that gives kids safe, screen-free access to streaming audio content. The award-winning Jooki player connects through Wi-Fi for music and audiobook streaming, helping parents empower their children to develop imagination, independence and emotional awareness. With Jooki, sharing favorite playlists and bonding the family with special stories, songs and music has never been easier. In just a few clicks, parents can associate a Spotify playlist with a Jooki figurine; and then the child can just place the figurine on the speaker to access that playlist.”
Jooki has already won multiple awards including the 2022 EdTech Cool Tool Award. “We are honored to be recognized by the premier leader in educational technology with this award for our Montessori-inspired, award-winning Jooki player that creates a safe environment for children to explore and learn on their own,” remarked Christine Brendle, CEO of Jooki. “To the innovators, leaders and trendsetters in K-12, higher education and workforce learning who continue connecting, producing and persisting despite all challenges, a hearty hat-tip and a grand salute!” said Victor Rivero, Editor-in-Chief of EdTech Digest, who oversees the awards program. Jooki was mentioned in the “Arts, Music or Creative Solution category for its screen-free speaker that gives kids safe access to streaming educational and entertainment-based audio content without the need for adult supervision. The EdTech Awards is the world’s largest recognition program for educational technology, recognizing the biggest names in EdTech – and those who soon will be.”
Other awards include the CES® 2022 Innovation Award for Best Headphones & Personal Audio and the Mom’s Choice Award – Gold Award Excellence Seal of Approval. “We developed Jooki to encourage children’s independence with the help of parents, which is why we are proud that the Mom’s Choice Awards has recognized Jooki as one of the best products for families,” said Christine Brendle, CEO of Jooki.
