Rastamouse and Audible get ready for an exclusive audio adventure
Audible, the world’s leading provider of digital spoken word audio entertainment, has signed a brand partnership that will make exclusive new content featuring the hit children’s character Rastamouse, available to download from its sites worldwide.
Arriving in Audible’s stores just in time for the UK half-term, Rastamouse will appear in ‘Da Big Carnival’ a new 60-minute audio adventure. The free to download ‘Da Big Carnival’, available exclusively at Audible, will follow Rastamouse, Scratchy and Zoomer on a fabulous problem-solving mission that takes all the little mice from Mouseland to perform at a ‘very famous Carnival!’
Audible’s partnership with The Rastamouse Company will also bring 20 episodes of the Rastamouse ‘For Real FM’ radio show to the Audible store. All 20 episodes will be available to download as a single compilation from Audible’s sites.
Steve Carsey, Audible UK’s head of original programming said: “We are delighted to welcome Rastamouse to Audible’s UK store. As a beloved children’s character, with a truly unmistakable sound, he’ll be giving James Bond, Robert Langdon and Mr Darcy a run for their money before we know it. We’re really looking forward to making his entertaining, engaging and educational adventures available for our customers to download and enjoy, either with their children or perhaps secretly for themselves.”
Greg Boardman, Director and Producer at The Rastamouse Company says: “Partnering with Audible has been a fantastic opportunity for Rastamouse & Da Easy Crew. We are very excited that we have been able to craft brand new content to excite the ears of children and their families and delighted that this brilliant new adventure will be brought to new audiences in the UK and internationally.”
