We thought there might be a few questions so we’ve attempted to answer them below.
What is Birde?
Birde is the world’s safest media player designed just for kids. It allows toddlers and preschoolers to listen to audiobooks, music and watch video without needing to use a screen, keyboard, mouse or remote control. Parents choose the content they want their children to watch and listen to, then kids simply tap their favourite albums, videos or audiobooks against the Birde icon and the music plays.

What age child would like it? Is my one-year-old too young?
We have found children as young as one intuitively know how to tap the Birde Seed against the console to get music to play. Birde grows with your child depending on the music, audiobook and videos you choose. Young children will love listening to their favourite nursery rhymes from The Wiggles or an audiobook like Guess How Much I Love You. Older children would enjoy more sophisticated audiobooks like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and videos like StoryBots ABC Jamboree. Birde content can cater for all young children.

Don’t just take our word for it! Here is what technology and development expert Dr Kristy Goodwin thinks of Birde.
Birde has solved most, if not all parents’ digital dilemmas – they have taken the guilt and guesswork out of choosing content that educates and entertains and delivering through a device that children can use but parents have full control over.
Will it arrive for Christmas?
Yes! If you order before 18th December, it will arrive in time to put it under the Christmas tree.
