You can track all sorts of stuff that’s good for your health: calories, steps, heart rate. But what about developmental health? The Starling is a wearable device and app that’s finally putting some hard numbers behind a crucial component of baby’s development: all your verbal interaction with him.
WHAT WE LOVE
- Safe to chew, drool-proof and BPA- and Phthalate-free, this little wearable star can be clipped, strapped or hooked onto your child or gear, whichever works best for your routine
- By tracking word count and analyzing your speech patterns, the Starling offers feedback on how you can communicate better: for instance, varying word choice and trying longer words
- Nothing you say is actually recorded, so that time you cursed a diaper explosion out is really forgotten
Just 10 minutes of conversation a day can put baby’s vocabulary 30 million words ahead by age 4. So start chatting! And let the Starling keep you on track.
