Kids can now virtually connect with friends and extended family with the Caribu app as schools continue to close to minimize exposure to COVID-19, which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Caribu is a family-friendly, video-calling app that is making its service free and unlimited during this time of social distancing and self-isolation. With Caribu, kids can create special moments with their loved ones by going on a virtual playdate while reading books from an extensive library of popular titles, playing games, and even coloring together during a video call.
“Kids are feeling the effects of the outbreak, but don’t always understand why grandma can’t come visit, why the special family spring break trip may have been canceled, or why they’re out of school for weeks,” says Max Tuchman, CEO and co-founder of Caribu. “Everything we do is about creating more meaningful connections, and that’s what we think is most important right now: keeping families connected in the most engaging way.”
The app uses books and activities to help kids stay focused and engaged while video chatting and includes more than 1,000 titles from leading kids’ publishers, such as Highlights, Mattel, Usborne, Baby Einstein, and more. Many of the books are also available in eight languages.
