Yoto Player
$99 plus cards
The Good
Versatile and really well-designed • Good for a variety of ages • Radio • podcast and light-up features make this more than a simple speaker • Functions as a Bluetooth speaker the parent can control
The Bad
The Yoto is expensive: It starts at $99.99 for the speaker on its own • The chances you’ll lose a beloved story card are high and need to play it from the app
The Bottom Line
It’s expensive upfront but we’re confident the Yoto Player is one of the more worthwhile tech devices for kids. It will be the one toy on your child’s bedside table from toddlerhood to the tween/teen years (and from one child to the next). There’s an ever-evolving library of content, so you’re sure to find something that interests your child.
