Why Valuez ?
We all know that one of the simplest, purest and greatest joys is sharing that special, close bond with your child.
We also want our child to grow with the right set of Values, a simple well told story can do wonders where no amount of scolding ever can.
Fuel the imagination of your kids and teach them real Indian values.
We aim to replace heaps of toys with this one Gift for your child and yourself.
Presenting the Valuez App and The Valuez Hut collection of Audio Books.
Perfect way to bond with your kids anytime during the day or before they sleep !
Did you know that frontal lobe of the brain which governs emotional traits and value-based judgements gets developed in young kids 5 years of age, onwards? “Valuez” content platform and mobile app aims at teaching and imbibing true, relevant values in our kids, in a fun, impactful and engaging way!
In consultation with child psychologists, instructional designers and parents, the platforms hosts games, original song rhymes, stories, values compass scenarios, interactive modules to deeply imbibe values in our kids. Other than routine and conventional subject based education, it is equally if not more important to teach real life values to our kids. Some of the sample values covered in form of learning games, original stories and rhymes are as follows:
Teach your sons to respect Girls and the importance of taking permission
Respect our Armed forces - difference between reel and real heroes
Sometimes Momma Papa may fight - but they are always on the same team
Importance of Cousins and Family events
Why sleep in your own room?
The list of values is ever growing in consultation with experts and feedback from an engaged parent community. The emphasis is on not making the delivery “preachy”, “condescending” or typical “Moral stories” mode. Instead interaction and fun stories, exposure to culture, relevant news and current affairs for kids in a language they understand, are continual focus areas. Our VALUE is sum of our VALUES!
Did you know?
Fairy Tale of Thumbelina in Hindi alone has ~150 Million views by Young kids, Snow White and Seven Dwarfs has ~120 Million views, Cinderella has over ~200 Million views. What do we show to our young, impressionable minds?
Here are some of the main plots in popular stories we show to kids, mostly without even realizing
Pinnochio kills his only Friend with a Hammer
Cinderella's step-sisters were urged by their Mom to "Cut off" a part of their heel with a Knife to fit into the glass slippers
In original story, Little Mermaid is so tortured that she kills herself
In Thumbelina, a young little girl goes through multiple suitors she rejects for their "Ugly" looks
Nearly all Fairy tales end in marriage of the young girl who is a damsel in distress rescued by a Man whose only virtue is his good looks
And so on....
In today's day and age when definition of "Quality time" with Kids is somewhat hazy...how do we talk effectively to our Kids about the real "Values" we want them to grow with?
Would it not be amazing if "Daadi", "Naani" could actually record their "own" value stories for kids to hear even when their Grannies are not around!??
The mode of distribution of this content is through following:
Own Mobile App called "Valuez" currently released in India and USA on Android platform
E-books and Audio books (available soon)
LMS platform (available soon)
Physical books (technology enabled to read stories or sing rhymes upon scanning from App)
It can be used together with "The Valuez Hut" Books, which are in physical book, e-book and read aloud book formats, which can be bought separately and tell original stories and Song Rhymes just by scan of a code through the App, even as you read a Story from the Book
Now Daadi, Naani can actually record their own stories through the App and Kids can listen to them any time even when they are not around
Values compass scenarios to present situations to the kids, interactions, games and engage them to respond in a "Right" manner

Excellent App and good innovative idea to develop valuez in our kids which were lost somewhere in our fast and busy lives. Until corona came as blessing in disguise to let us pause and think for our most valuable assets which are our Kids. This app has all the potential to bring back all those lost values in our kids.. Will use it fully for my both kids. Thanks Team Valuez !!!
The way the moral valuez are presented is very easy for kids to understand and for parents to explain. The option of audio books and video in one app is very innovative and helps in developing a child's imagination and creativity.Highly recommended.
Absolutely amazing! Apps like these are truly required in today's time. Loved it! Your children would love it too!
Very enriching and clean app for kids. there are no apps in this particular space. Thanks to the developers.
Great for the first launch. Greater is the vision behind this. Our kids watch videos all the time. What if they could also learn basic values while at it? Kudos to the team and best wishes.
