Audio Stories about the Palace of Knossos
How fascinating it would be if you were given the opportunity to meet the mythical King Minos and wonder around the spectacular Palace of Knossos?
The Kids Love Greece team has created the Kids Love Knossos application for ipads/ iphones, a series of audio stories about the Palace of Knossos which have been specifically tailored for young children.
Through fairy tale narrative Glaucus and his little sister Phaedra, the sweet time-travellers of Kids Love Greece, take you back in time to the glorious era of the ancient Minoan civilization.
With just one click you can enjoy Kids Love Knossos and meet characters like the terrible Minotaur, the giant Talos, Daedalus & Icarus, the beautiful Ariadne, and of course gallant Theseus. You will also meet the ‘Prince of the Lilies’ and the ‘Ladies in Blue’.
Kids Love Knossos is suitable for children of all ages and lasts 60 minutes. Physical presence in The Palace of Knossos is not required. The application is available from iTunes for either the iPhone or iPad and is available in Greek or English at the price of $4.99.
What do you think? Are you ready for this mystical journey?
