New York, NY (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Voki, the leading online solution for using speaking animated characters for education, has just released a new fairy tale cast of characters to be added to their repertoire. The characters are available now to all Voki and Voki Classroom users. The new fairy tale characters include a princess, prince, knight, court jester, unicorn, fairy, gnome, mermaid, witch and genie. The characters also come with fun accessories, like wands & wings for the fairy, color tiaras for the princess, and different suits of armor for the knight.
Educators and Voki advocates constantly request additional animated speaking characters. “The Voki Team created these characters because kids love fairy tales. With fairy tale animated characters, teachers can now incorporate a bit of “magic” into their lessons”, said Eric Kiang, Director of Marketing for Voki.
The release of the Fairy Tale characters received positive feedback from users. A teacher Audrey Schuler said, “I just tried one of the fantasy characters, a fairy. I used it to help with a school project on a fantasy book. It really helped and everyone loved it. I had it talk and say things for my project.” An elementary teacher said, “When I announced to my class that you'd added Fantasy characters they were very excited.”
