What is a Yoto Player?

Yoto Player is a carefully connected screen-free speaker made for children. It's controlled with physical cards, playing only the audio content you want them to listen to.

Does Yoto Player require WiFi?

Yes, you need a 2.4Ghz WiFi connection in order to setup Yoto Player. When you insert a Yoto Card into Yoto Player it downloads the content from our server. Once it has downloaded the content, then it can be used without being connected on future occasions*. The player has up to 140 hours/ 8Gb of audio storage. 

*Note that you can disconnect Yoto Player from the Wifi via the app. 

How do you setup Yoto Player?

Download the Yoto App for iOS or Android which will guide you through our very quick setup process. It normally take only a few minutes to get Yoto Player up and running!

Is it waterproof?

Yoto Player and Yoto Mini are not waterproof. Please keep them away from the bath! If you need to clean them with liquids, be sure to disconnect the transformer / charging cable before cleaning.

Where can I buy Yoto Player?

Yoto Player is currently available to purchase here at yotoplay.com and at others stores which you can check here.

How long does the battery last?

It depends on usage and content. Expect at least 6 hours continuous play and 8-10 hours on standby. We will be continuously improving this via software updates.

My kids have smeared food/toothpaste/bodily fluids (delete as applicable) all over their Yoto Player. What’s the best way to clean it?

The Yoto Player and Yoto Mini are designed to be pretty robust, so you can simply clean it with normal, non-corrosive household products. If you need to clean them with liquids, be sure to disconnect the transformer / charging cable before cleaning.

What age is Yoto Player suitable for?

Yoto Player & Yoto Mini are suitable for use by kids aged 3 and up. Although we've got hundreds of titles for kids from birth to 12+ years, children under 3 years old should only use Yoto Player or Yoto Mini under adult supervision and charging must be kept out of reach of children under 3 years old.

What is Yoto Club?

Yoto Club is like a VIP membership and monthly subscription rolled into one.

Club members get free shipping on all Yoto products with no minimum spend and 10% off everything too on subsequent orders.

For more information, visit the Yoto Club page.

What does the Yoto App do?

The Yoto App allows you to get your Yoto Player online and remote control your Player. You can scan cards on the app and play them straight from your phone*. There is also some content you can access to free. We're adding really exciting new features and will update the App as soon as they're ready!

*Phones with NFC Reader are compatible with this feature: Iphone (7 and above), Samsung Galaxy (S5 and above), Huawei (P10 and above), Pixel and above (including XL models) and others (OnePlus, Motorola, LG, Nokia, Sony, HTC). More information here

How do I download the Yoto App?
Do I have to buy a Yoto Player to make use of the app?

No, you don’t need a Yoto Player to play cards. You can play cards straight from your phone*, just download the app and for Android phones or iPhones 10s and above hold the card to the phone. For iPhones 7 and above you can activate scanning by selecting "Scan Card". The card will be added to your Library and can be played from your phone or a Yoto Player if you have one.

*Phones with NFC Reader are compatible with this feature: Iphone (7 and above), Samsung Galaxy (S5 and above), Huawei (P10 and above), Pixel and above (including XL models) and others (OnePlus, Motorola, LG, Nokia, Sony, HTC).

How do Yoto cards work?

Yoto Cards work using NFC technology, just like in your contactless credit card. They contain a link to the content which is stored on our servers. When inserted into Yoto Player, the Player downloads the content.

Do I have to buy a Yoto Player to play cards?

No, you don’t need to buy a Yoto Player to make use of the app, you can access free audio content which includes podcast, story and music.

What do I do if I lose a card?

Make Your Own cards are also useful if you happen to lose a card (maybe it gets wedged down the side of the sofa, or behind the bed!). All the Yoto cards you purchase are visible as virtual copies in the Yoto app.

1. Link your virtual card to a real card - go the My Library section of the app and find the virtual version of the card you have lost. Tap on the title to open the detail page for it, then select the three dot menu and select Link To A Card. Then insert a Make Your Own card into Yoto Player and confirm by pressing the LINK button. You should see a 'record' icon on the display, followed by a green tick to indicate a successful link. The card should now be removed and reinserted in order to play it.

2. Immediately find the 'lost' card in the sock drawer - because isn't it always the way!

Do you sell cards in other languages?

We currently sell cards in English, French and Spanish. We don't have timelines regarding any other languages just yet. Thanks for your understanding.

What are you doing to offer more diverse content?

We’re working hard on it 😊 It’s difficult in a publishing industry which has traditionally centred white voices as this directly impacts which kids’ titles are turned into audiobooks, and which are then available for us to license. However, we’re working with our partners right now to license and develop great kids’ audio by creators from diverse backgrounds, and which feature diverse characters, stories and perspectives.

Also, if you have any suggestions of kids’ audiobooks, music or podcasts which you’d like to hear on Yoto, please let us know 😊 We’re always open to suggestions from our community!

What are Make Your Own cards all about?

With Make Your Own cards, you can choose what you want to put on them, so it’s time to get creative.

You can make a card from stories, songs and sounds that you record yourself. Or you can use songs from your own music collection - if you have a bunch of MP3s you’d like to make a playlist from.

You can also make cards from our curated selection of radio stations and podcasts - which are available on the app - so that you can play these on Yoto Player, directly from a card.

You can even make cards for radio stations and podcast episodes not featured on the Yoto app. And you can make replacement cards for ones you have temporarily misplaced behind the sofa!

And if you want to update a card with new tracks, you can do this. And if you want to put something completely different on the same card, you can do that too, just by repeating the instructions below.

What content can I link to blank cards?

You can add any audio content you like (as long as you own the content that is!). It might be music that you own the mp3’s for, audio books that you have purchased elsewhere, or even stories and songs that you’ve recorded yourself performing!

How much can I put on each card?

The limit for each card is as follows:

- 100 tracks per card

- 100MB maximum file size of any single track

- 500MB maximum total file size of the audio content for any one card

What format can I use to make my own Yoto cards?

You can make Yoto cards with any content that you own that is in MP3 or AAC/M4A format.

Can I reuse a Make Your Own card?

The answer is a simple, yes!

If you want to put different content on a Make Your Own card, just go through the same steps as you took to make the card in the first place, and the new content will overwrite the old content.

Can I make cards from iTunes content?

Yes. iTunes uses AAC/M4A so your owned iTunes content should work on Yoto. Please note you will need a desktop computer to extract your audio files from iTunes.

Can I make cards from Spotify content?

Spotify is a streaming service, with a subscription payment model, so you can't download music in MP3 or AAC. There is not currently any support to play Spotify playlists on Yoto.

Why do I need an account?

We require customers to create an account so that we can ensure any content that you have purchased is correctly added to your account, meaning you can access it. If you are a Yoto Club customer, we also must have an up to date address and email address for you so that we can continue to send your cards to the correct location.

You can access all these banners and links by logging in your account and choosing from any of the banners or simple text links available. These links can be used from any website, put directly into a browser or emailed out in the case of text links.
