Co-produced with WBUR, Boston’s NPR station, You and the Beanstalk is a whimsical interactive version of the classic fairy tale about a cow, a giant, and an imaginative child whose magic beans start an unexpected adventure. It includes hallmark Earplay features: dramatic character interactions, multiple story outcomes, and high-quality voice acting, sound effects, and music. The story and design by Earplay (Dave Grossman, Eddy Webb) was produced in collaboration with the creators of Circle Round, the leading storytelling podcast for children by WBUR, Rebecca Sheir (narration, direction), Eric Shimelonis (sound design, music), and Jessica Alpert. With distribution through the new Echo Dot Kids Edition and FreeTime Unlimited on Alexa, children will love to “climb the beanstalk” as the main character in an immersive, voice-first adventure to find Mom’s birthday present above the clouds.
