Loving it as a traveling parent!!!

Our daughter is now a bit over 3 years old and pretty much used to me (her dad) reading at least one bed time story every night. In recent weeks I had to start traveling a lot for my job and our little
one started to be pretty mad at me for not being able to do the usual bed time routine. In the beginning I tried reading to her via FaceTime call, but that ended up being pretty clunky and I began searching for other apps that might offer a more shared and interactive experience. Voila, here comes Caribu!!! It is amazing how I am now able to do a video call while sharing the same screen and reading from one of the many digital books to her. Some of the books even offer a joint drawing function which my daughter loves (as long as I draw :D). Caribu has really become part of our bed time routine when I am traveling or sometime even when staying late in the office, so I would strictly recommend it to any parent that likes to increase communication quality and the depth of the personal connection with their kiddos. They will thank you for it! Noting beats being there in person, but this is a big step close than just an video or phone call. Big thumbs up for Caribu!!!


Revolutionary for our family!

Caribu has been life-changing for our family. We love that the grandparents can stay connected and read bedtime stories to the kids, while seeing them in real-time. It's so easy for everyone to use, and keeps the kids entertained while we are cooking dinner at night too. Highly recommended for families on-the-go, and parents who are not always at home when bedtime comes around.


Amazing app for my family

My youngest daughter is in love with this app! I travel quite a bit and I love how it allows me to connect with her while I’m away. Her favorite feature is the ‘draw’ option where she can create and save her artwork. Excited to share this with friends and family.
