I found the exercise fun and interesting: The sound universe of the stories is captivating, the voice of the narrator is suitable and very pleasant.

The stories are pleasant, not too cheesy and allow to quickly target the issues (anger, joy...).

Frequently asked questions

Can I play a Quiet story in Stimulation mode or the other way round ?

You can play your child a story from the Quiet mode to relax them during the day if you want. The order does not matter. The main goal is to find a track that suits your child's feelings and helps them find answers to their questions or ways to manage their emotions.

Can I let my child play alone ?

You can let your child experiment with HoomKid alone. It will allow them to discover their inner self and develop their sense of initiative, letting them choose what they want to listen to.

Can my child use HoomKid with headphones or earphones ?

It's absolutely possible to use HoomKid with headphones or earphones that are to be plugged into the jack plug on the side of the device. However, ensure the volume is not too loud and suits your children's age. HoomKid's maximum loudness is limited to 85dB (decibels) in compliance with WHO's recommendations.

I plugged HoomKid's cable in to charge it, but the LED doesn't light up, is it normal?

When your HoomKid's battery is empty, there isn't enough tension for the LED to light up. Plug the charging cable in to charge it up entirely. If you want to see the LED light up, wait a few minutes for your HoomKid to charge, unplug it, then plug the cable in again.

How to choose my story?

Once your child has chosen the theme's color and the story or activity they want to explore, all you have to do is select the theme's color on the upper knob and the story's or activity's symbol on the second knob. Then you can press "play." Here we go!

Can I check the battery level on my HoomKid ?

When HoomKid is on, its battery level is shown by the LED battery indicator, which you can find on the USB-C port's right. If the LED is off, you have at least two hours of listening left. If it is blinking red, it means that you have less than two hours of listening left (a full charge gives approximately 10 hours of battery run time in play mode).

Can I listen to a story if my HoomKid is closed ?

When HoomKid is closed, listening to a story with your headphones or earphones is possible. Without these, it is better to leave it open.

Why is yoga good for my child ?

Yoga is the perfect activity to alleviate attention and concentration disorders. It allows your child to be in tune with their body, to find their balance, to perfect body poses, and to develop their suppleness. In time, your child will learn self-control and relaxation for a better quality of life.

Why is meditation good for my child ?

Meditation is an extremely beneficial activity that contributes to well-being among adults as well as children. Your child will learn that meditation is not "doing nothing" but rather focusing on their surroundings, on the emotions they are feeling in order to understand them and relax themselves. Thanks to meditation, children increase their concentration skills and well-being. This requires a steady practice to be integrated into everyday life, like a routine.

What is the right age for my child to start using HoomKid ?

HoomKid is suitable from age 3. At that age, vocabulary is expanding with new words, thanks to imagination and emotions! It's also at that age that children start going to school, playing, and making friends, which brings them to discover new feelings and ask themselves plenty of questions.We recommend HoomKid until 10 years old because children change. They do not have the same needs and the same urges at 4 or 8 years old. Comprehension also develops with age, which allows your child to rediscover a story they heard when they were younger. That's why we created varied content in order to guide children through the different steps of their development.Whatever your child's age, our Quiet mode tracks are meant to calm down and relax on a day-to-day basis.
