A great way for my toddler to learn some english words and play music etc without using a screen! She quickly figured out the basics like switching discs, and is now also starting to switch languages and volume. For now the most understandable discs are the ones with pictures matching sounds, which can be used quite universal to language (like the instruments and animals) and she enjoys the ones with songs. I am hoping for a Norwegian language version soon, so it could be even more of a learning device. So far its a fun way to expose her to other languages. What could be better: -I find it creepy that it will suddenly say «hiii» after a while, if left on and not used. (Fortunately I had read about this in a review beforehand. But still weird as it doesnt normally say hi and its a light, different voice.) -Sometimes the symbols are not sensitve to touch, and you need to press close to the edge to get a response. -After replacing disc, the symbols are sometimes «mixed up», as in you get a different respons for the same symbol, until you press it a few times and they seem to fall in place/connect

We have a 1st gen TIMIO that we have loved for years. I bought the new stories as my daughter has listened to the other ones 100s of times. We installed the new SD card and it will work until you turn the unit off, or after a period of inactivity. Then it says to insert the new SD card. We then need to unscrew the back take it out, put it back in and try again. Sometimes we have to do that multiple times for it to work. Then if we want to play one of the old disks now we need to put in the old SD card. We essentially don't use it anymore, which is super unfortunate. My daughter really liked listening to stories before she fell asleep, but now it is just a source of frustration. .

We are a bilingual home but English seems to be the dominant language at the moment. It’s hard to find ways to reinforce our other home language without screens. The Timio has been great for that! It’s cute to see our son (almost 3 years old) repeating words to himself and choosing to listen to songs on the Timio. He even sings a few now! It makes my partner really happy. He’s recommended it to a few people (and he is usually very incredulous about my toy purchases). Our son doesn’t sit glued to it like a zombie and it is easy to put away if it’s time to clean up. So far the hit discs have been the songs, vehicles, various animal ones, and the alphabet. He has not yet become interested in the stories. I thought the asking questions function would get boring, but so far he seems happy with it. He usually only has it out for 10 minutes max before changing activities.

We have had the TIMIO for a few months now and all three of our children love it. It keeps them occupied, is educational, and very durable. The children, all under 4, can easily carry it around and use the disks with minimal help. I love that it has immediate feedback to their touching an image on the disk. It's also very easy to switch between languages. Sometimes the TIMIO does get confused though if the disks are moved to quickly and will play the incorrect audio the first press.

L’ultimo acquisto fatto è stato lo zainetto, essenziale per tenere in ordine Timio e i suoi dischi. Lo zainetto fa il suo lavoro grazie alle tasche interne della misura dei dischi. Oggettivamente, per il prezzo (a cui aggiungere le spese di spedizione non indifferenti), è proprio il minimo sindacale: decisamente spartano, a parte le tasche applicate ad hoc si poteva prevedere almeno un’area imbottita sul fondo e sui lati per proteggere l’apparecchio. È uno zainetto primo prezzo a cui sono semplicemente state aggiunte le tasche interne. Voto 5 al set completo, che la nostra bimba adora. Voto 3 allo zainetto (media tra utilità 5 e qualità 1).

La mia piccola lettrice cercava qualcosa per riempire il gioco solitario tra un’attività e l’altra. Timido si presenta come perfetto intrattenitore per raccontare storie, scoprire suoni e parole, ascoltare varie lingue, cantare qualche canzone. L’ ho acquistato ai due anni, ma ora a tre anni e mezzo è scoppiato l’amore tra la mia bimba e il dispositivo. Perfetto anche in macchina, con le sue cuffie, il viaggio diventa più piacevole oppure al ristorante invece di annoiarsi si ascolta le sue storie. Consigliatissimo

Fantastisch leuk apparaat! Als alternatief voor alle schermpjes gekocht. Zoontje 18 maanden; duurde 5 keer spelen voordat hij het doorhad. Discs moeten er wel recht op gelegd worden; als je op het laatste moment draait; dan pakt ie hem verkeert om en kloppen de plaatjes niet. Mss dat een ouder kindje dat wel begrijpt. Muziek instrumenten zijn het populairst. De kwaliteit van de opnames is zeer goed. Brouwkwaliteit ook goed (zoontje is er op gaan staan en mee gegooid).

Bought a Timio for my small child, and somehow after a short time of using it, it started sounding bad. Emailed the team, they immediately send over a new one that my child is now enjoying to the maximum (we underestimated how much he'd love it). We now have all sets of discs and it's his favorite car-ride "toy". Super gadget, amazing professional team, customer support is fantastic, I am thrilled. Best acquisition of the year! Thank you Timio!

Bought for youngest, but eldest also loves it! Our kids love music and the Christmas songs were a hit. So much that we ended up buying all the other discs. Also love the range of categories and different languages. They find Mandarin and Portuguese really fun so hope they show the same interest to the other languages.

My grandson is 5yrs old. He loves to listen to the stories & music (during bedtime). He has pick up names of some dinosaurs. I’ve bought all the discs. If you could add phonics will be good for learning age. Looking forward to your upgrading discs soon 😊

I really love it so far. I gave it as a present to my grandson and it seems strong and sturdy which is important to me. I like the content of the disks and hope to buy him more disks for his birthday. The only thing I would improve on his having the sound be a little more responsive in turning it up or down.

We have really enjoyed this for our 3 year old. She loves the stories discs! We would like for the stories discs to continuously play for nap time maybe or even that option. The only other thing is the discs slide off a little easier then expected. Overall we use this daily & have really enjoyed it.

Hi Jessica, thank you for your nice review! as stated in the User Manual and on the Quick Start Guide : ) when you press one of the song or stories images for 3 seconds the light will double blink confirming the activation of the continuous play mode.

Dealing with Timeo was exceptional they were so helpful and my grandson and his mum absolutely love his new Timeo it really is hardy and easy to use for little fingers, thanks. Great gift that will last for years and keep him entertained for the next 5 years.

I was looking for a bilingual toy for some young children and I saw Timio on Instagram. So, I took a look at the website and fell in love right away. This is not a toy. This is the best you can give a bilingual child. It is very useful and beautiful!!!!

My son is learning foreign language with Timio by himself since he was 2 and uses it in every day life. Even my husband started to learn basics of mandarin. I would highly recommend Timio! It’s like having a native speaking teacher with you 24-7.

My two year old loves this. He can use it on his own and does all the time. It is great for car rides or while I make dinner, or even to sit together and find different things together. Also very sturdy and easy for him to grip.

It’s the best thing my child has!!! Absolutely interactive, educational, fun ! Every kid should have one. Only critic, it would have been great if se could choose the CD themes ourselves instead of forcing it into a package.

I love how sturdy the timio is. It's been thrown several times and still is working. I am excited to see the new discs i purchases (in dabbing them for holiday presents). I hope there will be more options in the future too.
