FAQs

Absolutely! We’re all for active listening. Just keep your player on a flat, stable surface while it’s charging. And make sure it’s well-ventilated and kept away from water.

For the safest use, keep your Yoto player out of the bathroom. It is not water or splash proof and as with all electronic products, it is not advisable to have them in a bathroom. Of course, we do recognise that we have our toothbrush timer, so in this circumstance, we recommend keeping it outside the bathroom in a safe space, where you can continue to enjoy the audio and at the same time, use your player safely.

We can never guarantee the quality of another company’s cable, so we recommend using Yoto branded cables only. For all Yoto Mini sold between 2021 and 2023, please only use the new Yoto Mini Smart Cable replacement provided from April 2024 - more information here. Original Yoto Mini USB-C cable is safe to use with the Yoto Player 3rd Generation only. Order your Yoto Mini Smart Cable here, or get in touch with us if you need a replacement cable.

No. As with any electronic device, chargers should only be handled by an adult and charged out of reach of children.

No, please keep your player out of reach of children while it’s charging. As with any electronic device, it’s unsafe for children to handle devices that are connected to main power.

You can use your Yoto Mini inside its Travel Case, but we don’t advise charging your Yoto Mini inside the case. It’s important that your Yoto Mini is well-ventilated while on charge.

If it’s on charge, immediately switch off and unplug from the mains, then safely disconnect the charger. If it has an Adventure Jacket, please remove it. Then leave your Yoto player in a well-ventilated area at room temperature to dry for at least 24 hours, and check it for any water damage. Once dry, turn the battery on first, and if that works, insert the charger. If there are no issues, you’re good to go. If there are, contact our Customer Happiness team.

Try to remove it yourself with a non-metal implement, then check for any damage to the port. If it looks OK, insert the charge cable to test it. If not, contact our Customer Happiness team.

Try to remove it, and contact our Customer Happiness team if you can’t.
