Caribu is the app making virtual playdates with friends and family easier than ever before. They’ve just gone free for friends and family members to stay connected and make memories during the coronavirus outbreak! Due to growing concerns and quarantines over the COVID-19 pandemic, more than 400 million children around the world have been dismissed from school, are missing friends and are unable to see their extended families. Named the top app in this category, Caribu is helping bridge the gap created by social distancing and self-isolation by making their award-winning service free with unlimited access during this tumultuous time.
“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,” said Caribu CEO and co-founder Max Tuchman. “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. We’re like Zoom for kids!”
With Caribu, kids can create special moments with their loved ones by going on a virtual playdate where they can read books from an extensive library of popular titles, play games and even color together in a video-call. Caribu is a way to stay connected and build memories year-round but especially during a time where millions of families are under self-quarantine. The app connects kids with relatives and friends anywhere in the world. Named one of TIME Magazine’s Top 100 Best Inventions, it uses fun books and activities to help kids stay focused and engaged while video chatting. It also includes over 1000 plus titles (and growing) from leading children’s publishers like Highlights, Mattel, Usborne, Baby Einstein and more.
