Editors’ Choice

Video chats are a vital way to stay connected, but kids aren’t always ready to settle in for a long call. Caribu makes it easy for kids to not only call grandparents, aunts, uncles, and friends on their own but also read and play with them. Read classics like Thomas the Tank Engine, cook together with kid-friendly recipes, solve word searches, or watch beloved figures like LeVar Burton read stories aloud.

Grandchildren out of the country

Caribu is the answer to my prayers! My grandchildren live out of the country due to my son’s employment. My 4 yo granddaughter loves to chat online, but this genius app lets us read awesome books and play some really great games together. She even tries to read to me some of the easier books. With the 2 way video, we can expand the camera to a full page and she can show me what she did at school and new dances she learned. She is getting quite computer savvy because of this app which was an unexpected surprise. She can navigate all over the place and I didn’t teach her. I tried another similar app, but the books were lousy and we were limited to 20 minutes per month. It was also way more expensive. With Caribu, we can read several days a week and not fixate on the time. I am getting to watch her grow up and don’t feel so far away. Caribu is worth every dollar and I would pay more. I hope they keep adding new things for those of us who are super users! Many thanks to the developers for your creative app!!

Kids Love Caribu!

Caribu helped build the relationship between my kids and their grandparents. My kids’ grandparents live in Virginia and would only get to “see” their grandkids once every few weeks when when set up FaceTime calls. I could tell that my kids were getting bored quickly and didn’t really want to have the same “How are you doing? How’s school?” conversation every time so we looked for a more fun way to make calls to grandma and grandpa. That is when we found Caribu. It completely changed the conversations my kids got to have with their grandparents! They started reading books together and talking about the adventures that Thomas the Train and Barbie were going on and what book they wanted to read next. My kids now want to call “Grammy and Poppy” multiple times a week. My parents love using Caribu and getting to read and play play games with their grandkids. They now get to see each other multiple times a week instead of just for holidays! Thank you Caribu for bridging the gap between generations!
