hörbert grows with your child – individually recordable

The hörbert memory card can be used to record over 17 hours of music and stories. Today stories about Indians are interesting, after the next development step your child prefers to listen to audio plays about magicians or to songs about courage and adventures – with hörbert no problem, because it can be recorded again at any time and grows with the preferences of your child.

No cloud and no license obligation

You should decide for yourself which songs and radio plays you would like to play on hörbert. That’s why we don’t have a binding license program. Use the supplied memory card as you like, or expand the capacity with a larger card – according to the taste of your little darling.

With hörbert you hear the difference

Listening can stimulate creativity and increase vocabulary. The high-quality loudspeaker ensures the right sound quality. With hörbert, your child will discover every subtlety of language, every ripple, crackle or rustling – and the difference between “s” and “f”.

hörbert is made of wood

Children learn from nature. The frame and handle are made of solid beech wood, the front is made of poplar plywood and the rear wall of birch plywood. With hörbert your child has a faithful and long lasting companion. Insensitive, robust and suitable for romping. Thanks to the exchangeable parts, you can have any mishap repaired in the hörbert workshop or repair it yourself with a little manual skill.
