Electronic toys, digital tools and online helpers have transformed the children’s room into a smart room. Particularly in terms of safety, parents are relying more and more on the digital world, because the well-being and the health of their own child is their utmost priority. However, toy manufacturers are also going with the trend and, in addition to classic toys, are offering an increasing number of digital toys or hybrid games.

Digital toys, such as the audio system from tonies or the learning-to-talk pen from Betzold Tellimero, have already established themselves in many children’s rooms. The learning-to-talk pen has learning games relevant for teaching and should thus help children learn with motivation and at their own individual pace. With the help of the audio-digital system, the little users can also record their own texts and songs, and are thus playfully prepared for the digital world.

Smart support for parents

However, parents also benefit from digital devices: baby phones with additional functions or children’s car seats with electronic support give them a hand and provide support in everyday life. The mamaRoo child car seat from 4moms™ moves with the help of electronic support in just the same way parents do to calm their babies. The various movements can be controlled via smartphone or tablet by way of the 4moms app. In addition to this, installed sounds and an MP3 connection provide musical entertainment. The Swing2sleep rocking cradle from kemaly works in the same way. It helps the baby grow calmer and sleep more deeply. In contrast with many other baby hammocks or rocking cradles, it need not be moved by hand. This activity is carried out by the integrated motors.

Especially millennial parents make very high demands not only of the technology, but also in general. Despite having a baby, they strive to maintain an urban lifestyle between travel, going out, sports and work. In the process, they receive support through various digital offerings: from Gymondo, an online fitness platform that declares war on the baby belly using apps like the Cozi Family Organizer, which help organise family life, extending to tools such as GoToMeeting, which make home office work easier. With the related digitalisation, parents also find a great deal of support in everyday family life.

Digital safety solutions are conquering the market

In order to also simultaneously provide support to safety-conscious parents with the monitoring of their little ones, Philips Avent has developed a digital video baby phone that makes it possible for parents to establish a personal and secure connection with their baby at any time. It even monitors the temperature in the children’s room and is equipped with an intercom function. The Digital Advanced from Miniland is also a multi-functional audio-digital baby monitor with a screen and intercom function. In this way, parents can communicate with their baby at any time, see it and hear it, even when it’s not in the immediate vicinity. The same applies to the Luvion Supreme Connect, a baby phone with all conceivable functions. From intercom function and lullabies to the possibility of using several cameras. By way of the Luvion Connect App, every noise and every movement of the baby can be transmitted.
