AUDIOPLAY is an award-winning app that lets kids step into the story and play out the action – in real life!
Using simple household items (blankets, cushions etc) kids build imaginary story worlds, physically playing as a character in the story. AUDIOPLAY stories come to life with music, sound effects and character voices, making kids feel like they are inside the story, living the adventure!
AUDIOPLAY is screen-free entertainment that encourages kids to get up and move, be imaginative and work together in teams. Combining the best of old-school imaginative play with the audio production values kids are familiar with from TV and movies.

“I REALLY love this app; I think it’s got so much merit. I think it’s great because the kids are experiencing something, they're being physical, they're solving problems, they're building stuff, they're creating… It’s not that idea of sitting on a device and flicking through and staring at a video. It’s super interactive.” – One More Page Podcast

HOW DOES IT WORK
Kids/families play together in small groups using simple, accessible household items (blankets, cushions, chairs etc) to create the imagined story world. Each player will need a mobile device and a pair of headphones as each player hears the story from their characters point of view. Players then follow along with the story, playing out the action as instructed through the audio.
Audioplay is something akin to a play along podcast or building blanket forts with a sound-track only much better as everyone hears the story from a different character’s point of view.
