Audio Storytelling

It's time to bring kids back to the basics and allow them to enjoy the oldest form of entertainment: storytelling. ONANOFF is delighted to unveil StoryPhones, a magical ride to a whole new world of audio fun for listeners of all ages. StoryPhones is an independent device offering screen-free entertainment that doesn't need to connect to any other device for playback. It's able to store and play audio content at any time. An entertaining way to boost creativity and decrease screen time

Disney Collaboration

StoryPhones is excited to be collaborating with Disney for the launch. Disney offers an iconic collection of delightful stories, and endearing characters children can discover or rediscover and fall in love with all over again through StoryPhones.

Launching in the last quarter of 2021, StoryPhones will be available in two distinctive Disney colors. Stories available will include many of Disney's most beloved characters such as Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, The Little Mermaid, Frozen, Lion King, Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story, The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., and more. Disney adventures for StoryPhones will launch in 7 countries (IT, ES, AT, CH, DE, UK, FR) in 5 different languages (IT, ES, DE, FR, EN) all at the same time.

StoryPhones & StoryShield

StoryPhones are the first smart, portable wireless audio entertainment device for children combining high-performance headphones with an internet-connected content player. Access stories by simply popping a StoryShield disc into the StoryPhones. It will then automatically download the story into the headphone’s memory and start playing. After the initial download, it will play the content independent of any network or other device.

Curated Content

Discover the StoryPhones library full of carefully curated content, suitable for children aged 3 and up, that entertains and educates with audio stories, music and more. This careful selection lets parents relax and know they don't have to monitor what their children listen to. Over the coming years, we'll continue this ongoing collaboration with Disney to build an enchanting collection of magical stories for kids to enjoy. In addition to Disney, other exciting licensing collaborations will be added to bring even more characters to the range of StoryShields in 2022.  

Record your Own Story with PlayShield

StoryPhones also offer the option of recording your own stories, in your own voice, through the mobile app, creating a customized StoryShield called PlayShield. This way, users can record family stories and share the ones that shaped them with generations to come. It's also a brilliant way to stay connected with loved ones far away. Even though grandma lives in another country, a child can hear a bedtime story read in her voice. Parents can soothe their children with a lullaby sung in their voice when they need to be away.

Relax with ZenShield

A StoryShield aptly named ZenShield contains relaxing audio profiles to help overstimulated kids calm down, relax and even sleep. The shield includes a collection of pink noises, from piano to ocean waves, from rain drops to the original and exclusive RoRo Sound.

Audio Promotes Literacy and Improves Comprehension

By listening to stories, we encourage children to increase their learning capabilities. 85% of what we learn, we learn by listening and listening to audio increases reading accuracy by 52%. It also improves comprehension by 76%, providing context and helping children decode words and understand the text better. Listening to audio also increases motivation by 67%. Taking children away from the screens of smart devices can help them sleep better and focus better at school.

Award-Winning SafeAudio®

StoryPhones are award-winning SafeAudio® headphones for kids. They've received two CES 2022 Innovation Awards in the categories; Headphones & Personal Audio and Health & Wellness for their unique characteristics, usage scenarios, and technology.

Bridging the Gap Between Generations

StoryPhones are all about bringing families together and bridging the gap between generations through the simple act of storytelling. They encourage children's creativity with less screen time and more audio. So, bring screen-free audio stories, music, and magic with you wherever you go.

Let imagination be limitless, with StoryPhones by ONANOFF.
