Bringing a smile to all the crying babies and their parents
“Why won’t my baby stop crying?”
Since its founding in 1998, the parenting website “Babycome” has been contacted almost every day by mothers asking: “Why won’t my baby stop crying?” Wishing to relieve distressed mothers, experts worked together to create babyTUNE, an application that turns an upset baby into a smiling baby.
This application was developed by merging the knowledge of childcare provider ShoPro and the abilities of sound designer Akimasa Yamada. ShoPro contributed their experience and knowhow gathered from running numerous daycare centers. Mr. Akimasa Yamada is known for his pleasant sonic creations. Furthermore, the illustrations are contributed by a baby goods-developing and trading company, DAD-WAY.
Discovering new sonic compositions with BabyTUNE that fascinate your baby – mixing sounds the parents like – before they know it, parent and child will find themselves smiling. babyTUNE wishes to give many such moments to you.
Further, we would like mothers to enjoy sharing the soothing sounds they created for their own children and that these sounds will conjure smiles on the faces of babies all over the world.
