Description

Tales Untold is an app featuring original, episodic audio stories for young children. Think podcasts for kids.

We created Tales Untold because we feel strongly that kids content doesn’t need to be full of whiz-bang visual distraction. It doesn’t need to go 100 miles per hour, or shock their senses into submission. It just needs to tell a good story.

Tales Untold has come along at a critical time, as parents are becoming increasingly aware of the need to limit screen time and more actively engage their children’s developing brains. We were especially excited to read about the findings from recent studies showing that actively listening to stories–as opposed to watching videos or even following along with picture books–increases brain activity, improves the imagination and prepares young children for literacy.

We're sure you’re aware of the recent news regarding the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updating its recommendations on screen time for young children. Tales Untold is a model for how we can leverage technology to provide imaginative experiences without simply plugging our children into screens. In fact, we are proud to announce that the AAP has included us in their list of recommended media resources.

Review Highlights:

Great for working on listening and comprehension for stories - no distractions.

Children’s stories that parents will actually want to hear!

There are no videos to go along with the stories, which honestly is refreshing. My kids get enough time staring at their tablets that its nice for them to put on a Tales Untold story and just listen. I found my kids don't mind at all that there is no video to go along with the story. They will turn on a story while we are in the car or while they are just playing. My 4 year old loves it for quiet time.
