Screen-free storyteller shows potential of audiobooks for child development
According to the PA Publishing Yearbook 2018, sales of audiobooks increased by 194% between 2013 to 2018. Lunii saw the opportunity to open this popular storytelling up to children and developed a screen-free, interactive audiobook experience.
• Lunii's 'My Fabulous Storyteller' is an interactive audio storytelling experience for children aged 3-8.
• It is a screen-free entertainment system with no EMF emissions designed to stimulate children's imagination.
• 'My Fabulous Storyteller' comes with 48 stories & access to the 'Luniistore' (Lunii's online audio store) with over 1500 more stories, rhymes & quizzes.
• In the UK, Lunii is already available in Harrods, Selfridges and in other independent shops for £59.95 RRP.
Lunii: a portable, child-sized, interactive experience
'My Fabulous Storyteller' is similar in size to a paperback, but can hold up to ten story albums. Each album can contain between 6 and 48 stories, adding up to more than 100 stories and 14 hours of listening. By using the selection wheels on their 'My Fabulous Storyteller' children can build their own stories, choosing whether to follow the tale of a hero or a heroine, as well as picking the secondary character, setting and object.
Lunii's small and sturdy design is just right for children, & can be used with headphones.
An online bookshop and toy box, the Luniistore is a computer application that enables you to buy and upload original Lunii content onto 'My Fabulous Storyteller'. There are more than 1,500 stories across 9 different languages available on the Luniistore. Once albums have been purchased, simply plug in My Fabulous Storyteller to a computer via a USB cable to load them. When the Storyteller is full, purchased stories aren't lost – they are still stored on your Luniistore account.
The 'Luniistore' offers original content adapted to different age groups. In January this year, Lunii launched a partnership with Petit Bambou to include 'My Little Meditations', 6 guided meditations, "because meditation is not just for adults and because it helps concentration."
Lunii helping Child Development
Lunii's stories are written with an aim to stimulate children's imaginations in an active, engaging way, which is impossible to achieve when passively looking at a screen. Lunii helps to develop children's vocabulary. It also encourages curiosity & inspires animated, creative thinking by putting children in control of their stories.
