Now a new device called Starling can count how many words the child says and hears throughout the day. Why is word tracking important? Because research tells us that early vocabulary development can impact your child's trajectory for life.

The clip-on tracker pairs with the parent's smartphone and keeps a lifetime score since the device was first used.

The device not only gives you personalized information and analytics for your child, but it also suggests activities to help make sure your little one is on track to reach for the stars!

The device was developed Jon, Chris, and Nicki, supported by an amazing team of programmers, engineers, and childhood education specialists and product is presented on the INDIEGOGO.

Some details about the Starling:
  • About the size of a pacifier
  • Weight: As much as a pack of gum
  • Battery Life: 5 days
  • Waterproof
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth Low Energy
