Families looking for children-friendly content on Alexa will experience interactive audio storytelling with fast-paced, energetic adventures featuring a cast of characters kids love.
Titles in the reader-driven You Choose format feature action-packed, interactive stories with multiple story paths to keep children reading. With simple voice commands, Alexa users will help the Justice LeagueTM, SupermanTM, BatmanTM, and Scooby-Doo and the Mystery Inc. gang foil schemes and misdeeds. With multiple endings, You Choose Adventures represent the best in immersive, educational storytelling with an interactive, audio-only experience.
“Capstone is thrilled to partner with Warner Bros. to bring such iconic DC Super Heroes and animated characters to the Alexa voice-activated platform. New listeners will be introduced to some of the world’s greatest Super Heroes and current fans will discover a new venue for listening and interacting with their favorite characters,” said Tom Ahern, Capstone CEO.
To begin a You Choose Adventures story, kids invoke Alexa with her name and a key phrase to open a title, and then listen for prompts in the story to vocalize their choices. For example, a user says, “Alexa, open Justice League Adventures” to start their adventure. Each story includes: dramatic character interactions, multiple story outcomes, professional voice actors, sound effects, and music for an engaging, interactive audio experience. The stories are available as part of Amazon FreeTime Unlimited and can be accessed via FreeTime Unlimited on Alexa and on Echo Dot Kids Edition.
The full You Choose Adventures library on Alexa includes a collection of 50 titles, grouped into 12 story bundles, from Global Discovery and Space Exploration, to Extreme Sports and Epic History. The 12 story categories represent the best in immersive, educational storytelling with an interactive, audio-only experience.
