Yoto is an interactive audio platform for kids. Yoto offers a catalogue of stories, songs, activities and more to inspire creative play and learning without a screen. The carefully connected audio players – the Yoto Player and the Yoto Mini – put kids safely in control.

Inspired by Montessori principles, Ben Drury and Filip Denker founded Yoto in 2017. The very first Yoto Player launched successfully on Kickstarter, then promptly sold out. The second generation Yoto Player launched in early 2020. Yoto Mini – the portable audio player – a year thereafter. Now available in the UK, Europe and the US, Yoto have won awards and accolades from critics, parents and children alike.

Yoto’s platform features both award-winning original content and audio that has been licensed or co-created with partners. These partners include PRH, Macmillan, Sony, Disney, LEGO, Roald Dahl Story Company, HarperCollins, Hachette, Viacom, Bonnier, and Scholastic.
