  • Great but...

    By nenichav
    Found this through BlueStar Families and got the app;however, it says free subscription-which is confusing because it still asks if we want to purchase a subscription. I’ve never used it until today.. I opened the app to read with our daughter and I have NO READINGS left. It’s confusing! We did a video call and we couldn’t hear them.

  • Not reading together

    By Unbelievabletroublesome
    Unable to access from China! It’s either blocked by China government or caribu doesn’t have the copyright to show the contents in China, which is unclear by all means, it’s not mentioned in the caribu faq and no error message to tell, from the app, it’s only just fail to login:( so please don’t make the wrong assumption that you can surely use this app outside US
  • Caribu is a game changer for video calls with kids!

    By LJ in PA
    Just used Caribu for the first time and was so impressed with the quality and variety of activities available to engage the grandkids. I think I had as much fun as they did! Will definitely share with others and plan to utilize so cousins who live across the country can engage with each other as well. Excellent application for any friend/family member where distance keeps them apart from kids. I will also use locally when weather or other events prevent being there in person.
  • Lovely way to get connected with my family

    By Maschiavino
    Best app to get kids and grandparents connected in their everyday life
  • Great idea!

    By Hazeldad
    This is a great way for parents and especially grandparents to connect with their grandchildren! It provides just that bit of structure and content to a phone conversation to completely change it and make it so much more. Two things that I would like to see are a “Recent” or “Already Read” section so that it is easier to find books that we have already read but would like to revisit. The second thing would be to poll subscribers for favorite titles and work aggressively to obtain them. Some of these may not be the current favorites, but they might be favorites for grandparents. All of the “Golden Books” come to mind along with everything by dr. Seuss. And of course books like Goodnight Moon or Runaway Bunny are essentials also. The lack of really good titles has caused me to drop the rating to three stars from four.
  • Love this app!

    By Glennbi
    Love the app for remote and in-person reading / drawing with my 3-year old! He is obsessed with the surprise eggs, sometimes it’s my only trick to get bedtime started!
  • Scam lurking people to sign up for lifetime

    By Ruta11
    What a Scam! Do not buy this app. It is a piece of crap! You lurk people with 14 days free trial, then give them 3 options and nowhere is mentioned that lifetime subscription does not have a trial period! Omg! What a scam! You just charge money and do not stand behind the quality of this product!!! If you did, you would offer money back guarantee for 14 days like you promised! There was nowhere written that there is no trial period with life time subscription purchase! I downloaded this app, paid 99$ as I thought I had 14 days to cancel it if I don’t like it and not I’m stuck with this piece of vrap and big bill! Omg!
  • Great App for me & my kids grandparents

    By Suz-Salas
    I love this app! I travel for work more often than I would like and with three young boys don’t want to miss the special evening rituals of reading and interacting with my kids. My parents also use the app as it’s the easiest way for them to have a video chat with the kids without them losing interest or getting bored.
  • Excellent learning tool and relationship builder

    By rocap1
    Tested the app with my niece’s babies and we had a blast. I don’t get to spend time with them and doing this while on a video call promotes bonding time while enhancing creativity and learning. This generation of children are bound to learn more through interactive games. This is such a great creation.
