Here are some of the more frequently asked questions about Snorble®. If you don't see an answer to your question, then please contact us.
Where Can I Get Snorble?
Snorble® is now available for preorder through BackerKit, and you can find them here.
How Much Will the App Subscription Be?
We are aiming for somewhere between $4.99 to $6.99 per month depending on the feature roll out. That being said, the subscription won't be mandatory, and the basic app will offer a number of features and tools without charge.
What are the Risks of Snorble Being Hacked?
Due in part to wanting the best for our own children, we made Snorble for our families as well as yours, and safety was one of our biggest concerns. We went to great lengths to ensure a system that can work stand-alone so that Snorble is safe to use for everyone. Your kids can take it outside, in the car, etc. It only needs to connect to the Internet for updates, which are done only when you approve them. Outside of that, Snorble does the majority of its functions within the standalone system itself, and the rest is done through the app on your phone. This way, Snorble isn’t online in the same way that so many other systems are, which helps to eliminate many of the common issues that lead to the news stories.
Does Snorble Only Read Bedtime Stories?
Snorble is more than just a bedtime story reader. We've created Snorble to support children in developing healthy habits that can benefit them throughout their day and at night, so there are numerous activities and other things based on suggestions and feedback from experts in child development and other fields, as well as from our own experiences as parents.
Of course, all of this is customizable by you through the app, so you can choose exactly what Snorble does and does not do. We understand that parents know their children best, so we put you in control of deciding what will work.
How Many Stories Does Snorble Come With?
We currently have a number of stories written by a former Disney Imagineer, and we will be working on expanding that both before our launch and after. With a magical land like Lullaboo that's filled with countless adorable creatures, we've got plenty of great ideas for tales to help your little one fall asleep each night.
Won’t My Child Be Up All Night Talking With Snorble?
We know how persistent kids can be, especially at night when they don’t want to sleep. So, that’s why you can customize just how much Snorble engages with them after your bedtime routine is complete. Rest assured, if you’d rather not have them asking “why?” all night, then there are options to keep that from happening!
Isn't Snorble Just Another Screen?
For a number of reasons, we designed Snorble to be unlike many electronics. First, our little buddy doesn’t have a screen like conventional electronics, and we purposely designed it that way. Due to our innovative technology, we are able to ensure that Snorble emits little to no blue light, which means they don’t disrupt the secretion of melatonin prior to bedtime. In comparison to many other electronics, this is one of the many reasons why Snorble is well-suited to be a bedtime buddy for your child!
Second, Snorble actively engages with your child during the day. We haven’t created another screen for your child to get lost in. We’ve created an animated character that encourages mental and physical activity for your little one through educational activities, fun games, exercises promoting well-being, and conversation.
Most importantly, through encouraging self-improvement in your child, Snorble decreases the time you spend fighting bedtime battles so you can instead focus on positive family interactions such as story time, cuddling, and simply talking with your child.
Is There a Snorble For Adults?
Snorble is specifically developed for children (ages 1-5) when it comes to a number of the options and tools we offer, but we have had a lot of adults express interest in a version specifically for them. So, maybe we’ll expand our demographic in the future!
Can Snorble Work With Multiple Children?
Snorble can engage with multiple children in a number of ways. However, things such as the bedtime routine are developed specifically for each child based on a number of factors, so we recommend one Snorble for each child in order to obtain the best results.
Where Can I Learn More About the Science Behind Snorble?
Do You Offer a Trial Period?
Just like Snorble®, we want the best for your family. So, we will do what we can to make sure you are happy. Upon receiving Snorble, you will have a 30-day trial period to introduce our little buddy to your child. If there are any issues during this time, we will work with you to resolve them in the best way possible. The only thing we ask is that you are open and honest with us about your problem so that we can learn how to improve Snorble for others.
Can Snorble Handle How Rough My Kids Are?
Many members of our team are parents, so we know that kids can put products through their paces! With that in mind, Snorble will meet all applicable safety requirements for toys, as well as for electronic equipment, as required by ASTM test standards. This will ensure that, under typical conditions, our product is always safe and reliable. But rest assured, we won’t stop there. To verify that all our products are as durable as possible, we will have an additional process where we try to anticipate all the strange things that your kids will do to Snorble, including dropping, shaking, throwing, bouncing, and other acts of mayhem. If Snorble breaks during this testing, we will improve the design to be even more resilient. By going above and beyond the industry standards, we are confident that this will allow Snorble to handle almost anything, including your kids.
