Caribu Review

What is Caribu?

Caribu is a fun video calling app that makes it easy for friends and family to interact and play games with your child. Your child can participate in virtual playdates with friends and family members both down the block or across the country with one swift click. The app even integrates fun activities that both sides can play together in real time.

Whether you want your kids to chat with their friends that are in a different city or want to create a safe environment for them to learn how to use technology, here is the list of texting apps for kids.

Is Caribu free?

Caribu is available for free to download on iOS and Android devices. The free version of the app gives you 15 activities per month. 

How much does Caribu costs?

Caribu costs $9.99 per month to get unlimited access to all activities and features. This subscription is also shared with your contacts, so you can have twice as much fun.

How does Caribu work?

After you create an account in this kids video messaging app, you’ll be able to add users (like grandparents) to the network (obviously, they’ll have to install the application as well but they can set up a free account and only one person needs to pay for the family plan). When making calls, you can experiment with all kinds of interesting child-friendly activities that you can use together in the video-call.

The list of possible activities includes story reading, coloring, making up stories with stickers, and games like matching, puzzles, and tic-tac-toe. Your child will adore Caribu video calls and their grandparents will greatly appreciate interacting this way with their grandkid as well.

Bottom Line

Caribu is the family-activity video-calling app that keeps kids engaged, learning and having fun while connecting with family and having virtual playdates with friends. They can challenge their mates to an interactive game, get auntie to help practice their reading skills or have grandpa take over storytime.
