Bedtime can be a difficult time for both parents and children. Yoto players can be a great alternative to reading, and encourages independence from children. With an array of enchanting stories, soothing sounds, and gentle lullabies, Yoto Cards offer a gateway to a world of imagination and relaxation. In this post, we’ll delve into the realm of the best Yoto Cards for bedtime.

What is a Yoto player?

Yoto has a couple of different Yoto players, the original Yoto player (3rd generation) and the Yoto mini player. The Yoto player is a portable audio player that uses story cards to play audio content, such as audio books. 

The great thing about Yoto players is that they can be used by all family members, including little kids and older kids. They are a great way to minimise screen time, and encourage children to do story time a little bit differently.

Yoto Cards

Yoto players work with Yoto cards, which are physical cards, roughly the size of a credit card. To play the card, you insert a Yoto card into the top, where there is a card slot provided. In this case, it would be at the top of the Yoto Mini. Once inserted, the player will begin to play the audio from the card. 

Yoto offer a really wide range of Yoto Cards, which can be purchased via the online shop on the Yoto website. You can filter the cards by things like age, creator, character or best sellers and new releases. This is a really easy way to narrow down your choices and find something suitable for the child you’re buying for. Different kind of cards include:

  • Classic stories
  • Music cards
  • Educational 
  • Make Your Own Card (aka myo cards)
  • Sleep sounds
  • Meditation

These are just a few of the types of Yoto cards available and I’m sure you’ll find stories from a lot of your and your children’s favourite authors. Sometimes a card will be singular and sometimes you’ll be able to get a pack from either the same author or of the same theme. Your children might be huge fans of Roald Dahl or Enid Blyton, where sets are available. Maybe they’ll like more specific topics like educational content or music cards. Whichever your children prefer, there’s definitely something for children of all ages.
