Due to concerns over the coronavirus schools have closed and children are missing their classmates and extended family members. Caribu, the family-friendly video-calling app, is helping bridge the gap created by social distancing and self-isolation by making their award-winning service free with unlimited access during this time. Now kids can have virtual play dates with their friends and loved ones.

“Kids are feeling the effects of the outbreak, but don’t always understand why grandma can’t come visit, why the special family spring break trip may have been canceled, or why they’re out of school for weeks,” said Caribu CEO and Co-Founder Max Tuchman. “Everything we do is about creating more meaningful connections, and that’s what we think is most important right now–keeping families connected in the most engaging way. We’re like Zoom for kids!”

With Caribu, kids can share stories, play games and even color together during a video call. Caribou offers a chance to stay connected and build memories even when you can’t have face to face encounters. This is especially valuable during a time when families are socially distancing themselves or are under self quarantine. 

Visit Caribu now to download the app and enjoy free access to quality screen-time activities or check out their Facebook page to learn more.
