yoto mini by pentagram

 

yoto mini is an interactive screen-free audio device that reminds us nothing short of our favorite walkmans. designed by pentagram, it takes shape as a small portable box with a card slot on the top, where the kids can easily insert a physical card of their choice. by popping one in, they feed yoto with what they want to listen to. different cards reveal hundreds of different stories, songs, radio stations, or podcasts, giving children the freedom to explore their imagination.pentagram's yoto mini interactive audio box resembles our favorite walkmansall images by pentegram, unless stated otherwise 

 

 

suitable for small hands

 

yoto mini’s design (find more here) by pentegram (and here) comes with a comfy size for kids’ tiny palms. big knobs, a speaker, and a small display are all assembled on the front for ease of use. the small LED display shows pixel animations, providing feedback and interactive content without being distracting.

 

the whole design is based on tactile exploration encouraging fine motor control development that requires more than the touch of the fingertips. thus, the users can experience inspiring audio by operating the device with their hands, while it doesn’t feature any touch buttons. moreover, yoto mini incorporates a USB C socket for easy charging, as well as a headphone jack for personal listening.pentagram's yoto mini interactive audio box resembles our favorite walkmans

 

 

yoto mini is suitable for family journeys, keeping company on road trips, flights, and play dates. this playful device is conceived to stimulate kiddies’ curiosity, develop various sensations, and educate children of all ages. despite the small size of the device, the sound quality is good and surprisingly powerful. 

 

pentagram has already developed the design of the original yoto player, brand identity, packaging and visual identity. the compact packaging opens easily like a book, revealing the device and an introduction card. meanwhile, the studio designed a silicone jacket with lanyard that comes in various colors (orange, yellow blue, white and more others) keeping the product extra safe, portable, and colorful.
