Jooki
Belgium
Winner of: ACE Creative Award

Jooki is the world’s first smart jukebox specially designed for kids. It is operated by the child using its toys, not by the parents with their smartphones. At the crossroads between iPod, Sonos and Skylanders, Jooki is designed for ages 3 and up. It develops creativity and imagination in kids, through music and stories, away from screens. The toy interface makes Jooki very easy to use. It functions without a smartphone or tablet. Children enjoy music in a safe and ad-free environment with no risk entering inappropriate websites. Children operate Jooki by putting “Stars” on it. They are figurines and tokens that act as physical bookmarks for digital audio. Each toy has an NFC chip that links to a playlist, podcast or web-stream. Parents manage what their children listen to by an app used to upload music to Jooki.

Jooki is a screenless wi-fi speaker for kids that redefines the experience making it truly fun, interactive and intuitive. It is a designer item made to be both attractive for children and stylish for their parents, and it incorporates a high-specification speaker of excellent acoustic quality. As a wifi connected device Jooki is designed to make it easy for parents to share their favorite mixtapes and streams with their young children. Jooki's specifications exceed existing toy regulations by far and is ready to meet the stringent privacy and internet security standards of online security for kids in the 21st century.
