Have you heard of TIMIO?
TIMIO puts kids in control of their learning with 20 disc choices that play in 6 languages. WOW, I know! It’s a different kind of kid’s audio player for learning without screens to worry about.
We have been teaching our children Spanish for years so this was a huge, added bonus. With three children at all different learning levels I love that I can actually use it in different ways for their learning.
It’s easy as adding batteries, putting a disc on the front and pushing play. No downloading. No needing wifi connections. It’s the perfect traveling audio player for car rides, plane rides, trains and more.
I was initially excited to have Baby O try it out as he is just learning to talk and putting things together in sentences. The variety of disc subjects is perfect for his level. The discs are so easy to put on and off, even at 21 months old, he can choose what he wants to learn and listen too. He absolutely loves the musical discs that play music to lull him to sleep at naptime or for a good disco boogy with his siblings.
The older ones were keen to try it out too, in other languages. Since they are 6 and 8 years old, they already know their animals, vehicles, food, alphabet but it’s the perfect level to practice their Spanish and French for school. My eldest is learning both in school so he says its more fun and an easier way to memorise them using the TIMIO.

- Quality speaker: Great music and the clarity of the sounds helps the learning of the vocabulary.

So why buy a TIMIO?

- Even babies can change the discs, turn it on and off and choose what their want to learn

- Perfect for traveling, lightweight and has a handle to easily carry

With so much screen glare from tablets, tvs and smart watches, I love that this device is completely screenless. I love that it’s back to basic learning, in a fun and engaging way for kids.
The older two love watching their baby brother learn from his TIMIO. They help him go through the discs and repeat the new words he has learned with him. It’s truly a good bonding experience for all three of them too. Baby O even has his favorite discs: the counting numbers and animal discs, he constantly picks up first.
