TIMIO further expands children’s imagination and expressiveness and broadens their vocabulary. But that’s not all: TIMIO knows the alphabet, numbers, colours and shapes, tells exciting stories, knows lots of songs and makes numerous different noises. All in eight languages!

Interactive operation – so simple it’s child’s play

TIMIO is ready for immediate use – it doesn’t require an internet connection or power supply. It doesn’t need a charger at all, making it fully mobile.

Simply switch it on at the back, select one of the 8 languages and put on the disc. It doesn’t matter which way the magnetic disc is facing when you put it on. This does not affect the function of the disc. You can hear sounds, words, songs and stories simply by tapping one of the symbols. What’s more, TIMIO is able to ask quiz questions.

The concept of TIMIO is so intuitive that even the smallest hands can play with it by themselves. They don’t need an adult’s help in operating it. With its ergonomic handle, TIMIO will become a constant companion for kids on car, train or plane journeys.

TIMIO supports your child’s natural development with lots of stimulation

Products from TIMIO offer fun, exciting and engaging content such as sounds, quiz questions, vocabulary, children’s songs, stories and fairytales for different age groups on a variety of topics. What’s more, subject-specific discs on topics such as animals, alphabet, numbers, colours and instrument are available in several languages. In the languages English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch and Mandarin – TIMIO offers over six hours of edutainment in each of these eight languages.

Every child is unique and develops in their own way and at their own pace. Children’s knowledge of the world is constantly expanding. In doing so, they observe, compare, draw connections, consider and develop an almost insatiable thirst for knowledge. Hearing and listening are already an important way of learning, even for the tiniest of tots. As they grow and gain in practice, they are able to distinguish and describe different sounds and noises. TIMIO supports their sense of hearing and ability to listen with its wide range of topics, developing their language skills and cognitive-social abilities in the process. Furthermore, their motor skills are also promoted by putting on the disc and tapping its contents.

Older children are often interested in answering quiz questions and listening to entertaining stories or music that gets them dancing. What’s more, discovering new languages can promote a sense of diversity and cultural awareness.

Fun with linguistic, motor and cognitive development

  1. Cognitive development

Cognitive development refers to the changes that occur in cognitive processes and knowledge – perception and thinking, imagination and problem solving.

TIMIO promotes cognitive development according to the child’s needs and abilities in many important areas of life. No matter which stage of development the child has reached, their memory, concentration, attention span and perception will be supported by the following styles of play:

  • Recognising sounds
  • Learning the alphabet
  • Learning numbers
  • Singing along with or echoing songs
  • Matching and distinguishing shapes
  • Learning colours
  • Asking and answering questions
  • Choosing from options
  • Learning words
  • Learning languages

  1. Speach and language development

Learning to speak is supported by five different activities: Observing, listening, discovering, imitating, forming and formulating.

Play is very important for the development of speech and language. All of these five activities mean that children can play with TIMIO from infancy:

  • The child looks at the pictures on the TIMIO discs,
  • while listening to the sounds, words, songs and stories.
  • They discover more of TIMIO’s wide selection of content on the discs.
  • Looking and listening is rewarding as the child begins to imitate TIMIO’s sounds and words.
  • Finally, the child compiles everything they have learned and forms or formulates their own words in order to play or communicate.

  1. Fine motor skills

Fine motor skills refer to the coordination of small muscles in making movements – usually the synchronisation of the hands and fingers – with the eyes.

Playing with TIMIO promotes fine motor skills as the child must select a disc, place it on the TIMIO and tap a symbol. The layout is so simple that the product can even be operated by the hands of very small children.

  1. Imagination and fantasy

Both of these qualities come naturally to children as they blur the boundaries between the real and the imagined to open up brand new worlds. They provide the foundations for creativity, which will be very important in later life.

With TIMIO, playtime is supported with sounds, tones and noises, sparking children’s visual imagination of a situation. Furthermore, listening to fairytales, stories and nursery rhymes challenges children to process and interpret what they have heard.
