Yoto and Disney expand partnership with new content cards

Published on: 29th November 2021

The collaboration between the audio platform and the content studio now brings more than 40 magical audio stories to children across the UK. 

Yoto, the audio platform for kids behind the award-winning Yoto Player and newly launched Yoto Mini, has worked with Disney to expand its extensive audio content library to a total of 43 family favourites that bring much-loved classics and characters to story time off-screen.

The new range of content cards includes 12 Animated Disney Classics recorded by Yoto, and 18 Disney and Pixar tales. The audio adventures, all of which can be bought as standalone content cards, are inserted into the Yoto Player for story time to begin. Parents can find a collection perfect for every age, with content available for children and grown ups alike from magical tales including Disney’s Frozen, Mulan, Cinderella and Dumbo, Pixar’s Toy Story, Ratatouille, Up and more. The audio cards have been created to inspire and ignite the imaginations of children, and vary in length from 25 minutes to five hours. Collections of  five minute stories, bedtime stories and long stories are available too.

Yoto and Disney have also launched a new range of Marvel titles. The five action-packed stories – Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk, Thor, 5-Minute Marvel Stories, and 5-Minute Spider-Man Stories – introduce more than 10 hours of exciting superhero adventures to the Yoto content library.

Three audio packages have also been created, ideal for every type of Disney fan. Each collection contains three to six cards and features the stories of well-loved Disney characters and Marvel superheroes.

Ben Drury, CEO and founder of Yoto, said: “The team at Yoto is delighted to be working with Disney, Marvel and Pixar to produce beloved audio retellings of magical tales for children and their families to enjoy. Making childhood favourites even more accessible with screen-free listening, and using this form of storytelling to encourage independence and creativity, is of huge importance to Yoto. We are thrilled to continue having the opportunity to create content with a collaborator such as Disney.”
