Jooki Smart Music Player Review (MuuseLabs)

Jooki Smart Music Player
What It Is

Kids can be their own DJs with the Jooki, a portable music player that kids can independently use in a screen-free environment. Parents connect it to the Jooki app and upload favorite content, such as music or stories, so that kids can listen offline. A few songs are included in the app. The Jooki is wifi-enabled so that you can also stream music. The app can actually be connected to Spotify premium accounts. 

Jooki, which is short for "jukebox", comes with five character figures that you link to one of your playlists. The characters are a blue whale, a white ghost, a grey knight, an orange fox, and a green dragon. Kids simply place the character they want on top of the Jooki to start playing the playlist they want to hear. Buttons on top of the Jooki allow kids to switch between tracks and control the volume. There is also a headphone jack on the bottom of the unit.

Parents can also start and stop the music and control the volume from within the app.

Is It Fun?

If you use your phone for music and so do your kids, then the Jooki can help give you back your phone while still allowing your kids to listen to their favorite music. Kids feel in control with the easy-to-use character figures that start and stop the songs. And thanks to the durable carry strap, it's easy for kids to take the Jooki from room to room and on the go, so that the beat will go on.

Who It’s For

Jooki is for music-loving children ages 3 and up.

What To Be Aware Of

The Jooki comes with a USB cable for charging. You can get about six hours of continuous use from a full charge.

The Jooki app is a free download for Android and Apple devices.

Jooki has limited internal storage (it doesn't say how much), but you can expand the storage with a microSD card up to 32GB. A microSD card is sold separately.

In order to use the Jooki with Spotify, you must have a Spotify premium account.

Additional characters are available to purchase, as are tokens that will connect to one of your playlists.

Jooki is splashproof, so you could bring it poolside, but you wouldn't want it to fall into the water.
