BUENA VISTA, Colo., Feb. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Walrus & Carpenter Productions LLC proudly announces the availability of its AlicewinksLite series of 12 apps for Android devices. Available on the Amazon app store for Android, Alicewinks apps are audio/video/text products providing a multimedia treatment of Lewis Carroll's original story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. Alicewinks uses artwork from the "golden age of children's illustrated books" in the early 20 th century along with 21 st century digital technology to create stunning digital animations of this 19 th century fantasy. The Alicewinks soundtrack includes the voices of 19 different actors and actresses in character, as well as the narrator. The soundtrack is further enhanced with sound effects and music. The text is from the original version of the story and is included as an optional "text track" so that you can read along or read out loud.
"Hopefully this will give mothers a little quiet time," says Katie Pohlman, a partner in Walrus & Carpenter, and the voice of Alice. "I've worked for years in the non-profit field, helping families and children and even though I'm not huge on giving kids increased access to screen time, when they are getting that screen time it might as well be something good. "Because the original artwork was usually "portrait" oriented, this material is uniquely suited for tablet computers that can be rotated into that orientation. The illustrations, being originally displayed in books, were designed for viewing at arm's length like on a tablet, as compared to movies or TV shows that are intended to be seen from a greater distance. The audio has been optimized for small speakers or headphones.
