Lunii, creators of My Fabulous Storyteller, have announced a licensing partnership with Nelvana, an international producer, distributor and licensor of children's animated and live-action content, and The Clifford Ross Company to bring new stories of "Babar" to the Luniistore.
"Babar Visits the Elephant Kingdoms," written by Lunii, is based on author Laurent de Brunhoff and recommended for ages three and up. The stories are available for download on My Fabulous Storyteller, a screen-free audio player for children.
"We are delighted to launch this audio-first album of new interactive stories starring Babar and his family, the characters created by Laurent de Brunhoff that children have loved and grown up with for generations," says Marine Baudoin, editorial director, Lunii. "Through our partnership with Nelvana, our listeners can now enjoy the classic elephant family in these new original stories created exclusively for Lunii's My Fabulous Storyteller."
"Story time is such a special time for children, allowing them to foster their imagination and creativity," says Mellany Masterson, head, Nelvana Enterprises. "The audio and sounds Lunii incorporated into original "Babar" stories not only create an immersive screen-free experience for children but also provide fun and exciting new ways for kids to learn about different cultures, foods and customs as they explore the world with "Babar's" iconic red hot air balloon."
Children can discover new adventures of the famous elephant in these previously unpublished stories featuring Babar, his wife, Celeste, and their three children, Pom, Flora and Alexander.
My Fabulous Storyteller allows children to craft their own stories by choosing a hero, a location, an object and characters. The audio player features 48 stories, or three hours of listening, which are available in an additional seven languages, along with six bedtime stories in English. Hundreds of additional albums are available for purchase on the Luniistore.
