What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Moshi Twilight Sleep Stories is a subscription-based collection of calming audio tracks meant to help young kids drift off to sleep. Kids can listen to stories, music, white noise, or guided meditations all specifically designed to appeal to kids. Tracks average around 15 to 20 minutes long and are available for download. Kids can share individual tracks through your device's sharing options. The free download includes limited content. Unlock everything with a seven-day free trial before subscribing. New content is added regularly. With adult oversight it's safe for kids to use, but parents need to decide if they want to build a habit of having a device in their young kid's bedroom at night. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

Tap on the icon for your choice of four audio track types in MOSHI TWILIGHT SLEEP STORIES: stories, music, sounds, and meditations. All tracks fit the theme of the magical world of Moshi and feature four sleepy animal characters and imaginative extras. Listening controls include AirPlay, automatic repeat, advance or go back in 15-second intervals, and share. Browse pre-compiled playlists, or make your own.

Is it any good?

This collection of sweetly imaginative stories is wonderfully kid-friendly, though it's a personal decision for families if they want to use a device at bedtime. Stories have loose plots and focus mainly on whimsical yet calming adventures and explorations in the world of Moshi. Music is gently instrumental, though sounds a bit electronic, and sounds ends up being mostly standard white-noise like sounds with silly names. Tracks are nicely paced to get progressively more and more sleepy sounding. Playlist creation is a nice function to mix and match favorite tracks together. Replay allows parents to set the audio to keep playing, but there's no in-app option to set the audio to automatically turn off. And though the lovely graphics rightly disappear once the audio track gets going, there's still a device involved in the bedtime routine. Given that the typical recommendation is to leave devices out of the bedroom, especially at bedtime, using the app clearly goes against that advice. The high subscription price also makes Moshi Twilight Sleep Stories a bit of an investment. Parents may want to carefully consider whether paying a steep price to introduce technology to help their kids sleep is the right choice for their family.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why their kids might need Sleepiest: The Sleeping App to fall asleep. Is there something that's worrying them? Are they tense? What's getting in the way of them winding down at the end of the day?

  • If you have the time and the patience, try the tried-and-true method of reading stories to your kids yourself or singing them gentle lullabies to help them wind down.

  • Discuss the use of screens and technology in our daily lives. In what ways do they help us do things better? Are there aspects of our lives or days where screens should not have a place? Why or why not?
