Screen-free play and learning with Pinna

A special thank you to Pinna for sponsoring this blog post. All thoughts, reviews and opinions are my own and not those of Pinna. #pinnaaudio #pinnakids

Being a homeschool family, we are always on the lookout for fun ways to spend our time between lessons that are also educational. I recently found out about the Pinna Audio App and I am so glad I did! 

With so many apps requiring screen focus, I was excited to find Pinna and learn that it is the only ad-free streaming service developed and curated exclusively for kids ages 3-12.

Their goal is to activate kids’ imaginations through immersive screen-free entertainment. Pinna creates and offers original shows, stories and songs. Pinna also offers some of the best-known and award-winning kids podcasts, music and audiobooks from around the world! From science and fantasy to interactive game shows and mysteries, they offer hours of programming to pique the interest of every kid! 

I was happy to hear the great awards Pinna has been recognized with including 2019 Parents Choice Foundation Gold Award for Pinna App, 2019 Parents Choice Foundation Gold Award for Pinna website as well as individual recognitions of 13+ Pinna Original Podcasts.

I love how Pinna has created an app and space for kids to inspire them to giggle, learn, guess, participate and wonder.

Charlie is a gamer so he was instantly drawn to and enjoyed the ‘Totally Unauthorized Minecraft Fan Show’ podcast. He loves stories about adventure, mystery, outdoors and action like the audio stories ‘Ninja Kid’ and ‘Georgie’. Meredith loves listening to stories about animals, dinosaurs and fairies like the classic ‘Clifford’s Good Deeds’ and ‘Alice the Fairy’. 

There are so many ways to enjoy Pinna for screen-free entertainment and learning. 

 Charlie & Meredith both love art time or game time while listening to a story. While running errands or traveling we also like using the Pinna app for entertainment while we ride in the car. To relax screen-free chill time after a lesson or to whine down before bed, listening to a story is always a favorite.

Pinna offers a free 30 day trial! How great is that!? Head on over to Pinna for more information and give them a follow on Instagram @pinnaaudio. Be sure to download the free trial on the app and give it a try!

    I’ve never heard of this app. I’m always on the lookout for screen free entertainment, or screen entertainment that’s age appropriate.

    1. Same here! My 8 and 3 year old both love it! So nice it’s not a screen focused app. Give the free trial a try! Hope you enjoy it!
