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!!!

Scam lurking people to sign up for lifetime

What a Scam! Do not buy this app. It is a piece of crap! You lurk people with 14 days free trial, then give them 3 options and nowhere is mentioned that lifetime subscription does not have a trial period! Omg! What a scam! You just charge money and do not stand behind the quality of this product!!! If you did, you would offer money back guarantee for 14 days like you promised! There was nowhere written that there is no trial period with life time subscription purchase! I downloaded this app, paid 99$ as I thought I had 14 days to cancel it if I don’t like it and not I’m stuck with this piece of vrap and big bill! Omg!

Caribu is a game changer for video calls with kids!

Just used Caribu for the first time and was so impressed with the quality and variety of activities available to engage the grandkids. I think I had as much fun as they did! Will definitely share with others and plan to utilize so cousins who live across the country can engage with each other as well. Excellent application for any friend/family member where distance keeps them apart from kids. I will also use locally when weather or other events prevent being there in person.
