Join Peter in his quest to catch the wolf in this fresh interactive reimagining of Prokofiev’s classic work for children. It is the perfect way to introduce children to music and storytelling.
Prokofiev’s tale, set in modern-day Los Angeles, begins with the wolf’s escape from the local zoo. To capture the wolf, Peter has to build a robot, maneuver his way through a thrilling helicopter chase, and manage some hilarious interactions with a few quirky animals. Peter’s adventures, which culminate in the forbidden garden of a movie star, are set to timeless music and interspersed with absorbing mini-games, including:
BUILD A ROBOT: Help Peter build a robot using an electro-magnet and crates of spare parts.
ENTER PETER’S DREAM: Reveal the meanings of the constellations imagined by Peter.
PHOTO ALBUM: Discover Peter’s childhood, before he moved to America to live with his Grandfather.
SWIM LIKE A DUCK AND FLY LIKE A BIRD: Launch the duck into the pool and swim around. Fly the bird through clouds leaving trails of musical notes.
MUSICAL FOOTPRINTS: Make beautiful music with the cat’s paw-prints. Watch out, though – each time you make a mistake, she yowls!
