What is Birde

Birde is the best way for young children to play audiobooks, music, watch videos and learn. The educational smart speaker that limits screen time and allows children to play their own music, audiobooks and video* in a completely safe way. Kid-tested, tough, waterproof and cordless. Specifically designed for children!

Birde is educational - Children learn at their own pace

We have chosen some of the world’s leading content providers to share educational music, audiobook and video content for our platform. All of the content is chosen by us. We make sure everything has an educational element to help toddlers and preschoolers learn at their own pace. We have content from The Wiggles, StoryBots, Play School, Counting with Paula, Dinosnores with more being added all the time.

Birde is easy to use - Tap and play

From the very first prototype, Birde has been designed with young kids in mind. Every change we make, we test with a large range of kids to make sure it’s easy to use. We have found that children as young as one intuitively know how to tap the Birde console with a Birde Seed to play music.

Birde is kidproof - Waterproof, washable & drop proof

When you design a product for kids, you want to make sure it’s completely kidproof. No more broken screens and cracked remotes like you might have experienced with other media streaming devices! Both the console and the Birde Seeds are  waterproof, washable and drop proof in little hands.

Birde is safe - No Ads, no Internet, no worries 

This is what is most important to us. We developed Birde to protect children from harmful content. Birde does require a Wi-Fi connection to download content however it has no access to the Internet. Unlike most media streaming devices, there is no way children can find anything inappropriate or see advertising. You choose the content you think is appropriate for them.

Birde is portable - So they can play outside

Its compact design and eight hours of battery life means your little one can safely stream music and audiobooks out and about. Once your content has been purchased, it’s downloaded onto the device so can be listened to without a Wi-Fi connection. Birde is wirelessly rechargeable, so your kids can just remove it from the dock and off they go.
