Case Study / Yoto Player


Yoto Player is a screen-free audio speaker for kids designed to safely give children full control over their listening, by entertaining and educating them while reducing screen-time. Yoto Player is controlled using physical cards that are inserted into the Player which plays audio content.

As a startup brand launching in the US, Yoto tasked 5W with launching the brand to the US market, building brand awareness among consumers and families and positioning the Yoto Player as a must-have item that encourages creative expression through audio.

As a new brand to the US market, 5W worked to build credibility for the brand and establish the Yoto Player as a must-have product for families.

5W launched a media campaign with the goal of garnering top-tier parenting, technology, business, consumer, and lifestyle media outlets while showcasing the uniqueness of the Yoto Player and educating consumers on the importance of audio time. 5W also integrated product awards and best of list coverage into the campaign to help establish brand credibility, as they were new to the US market.

Finally, 5W leveraged Yoto co-founder Ben Drury as a pioneer in the audio time space to establish him as a thought leader within the industry.
