As you know, Halloween is our jam around here. It’s my favorite time of year in which to find new activities, recipes, games, and family fun nights. My kids are always up for my zany ideas, and I find myself looking forward to these nights just as much. We do family game nights, family pasta nights, family baking nights, and family movie nights. I’m at this point in my parenting life in which I’m more aware than ever how lucky we all are to be together and to treasure these moments together. I hope it lasts, and it will if I keep up the creativity! That’s why we made our best Spooky Family Fun Night yet!

So, what did we get? The Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater skill.

What does it do? It allows imaginations to run wild and brings us all together in a whole new way. Our Amazon Alexa is fairly new, so this was a great way to unmask its true power. We put on our detective hats and experience the spooks and sounds of Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater. Oh, and what IS it? I’m glad you asked! This is an interactive storytelling experience that puts your family in control. You get to choose where and how the story unfolds, while working alongside your favorite characters, including Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma. We unravel the secrets behind their latest caper.

The thing is, it’s challenging! As you know with Scooby-Doo, things are not always what they seem. This is true mystery! Here are three reasons I love the Amazon Alexa Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater skill. 1 – It blends immersive storytelling and voice technology. The Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater skill is at the forefront of a whole new form of entertainment that doesn’t require a screen. 2 – This skill brings Scooby and the Gang to life and empowers my kids to flex their imaginations as they decide where and how this fun mystery unfolds. 3 – Also, Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater ushers in a new kind of family tradition, but also evokes the nostalgic feelings of radio’s golden age. In that respect, it appeals to me as a parent of littles, and also as a thirty-something who very much has fond memories both of Scooby-Doo and of radio!

When I was a kid, I loved user-generated story books. I always knew there was something special about it, which is why I love that the Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc. Theater skill pioneers an interactive and voice-driven medium in which stories are shaped by our decisions. This unique format and responsive design pushes the boundaries of how people interact with voice technology today. The skill utilizes a real narrator throughout the experience to deliver an elevated experience. My kids love the combination of Alexa’s personality (that we have grown to know and love) with scripted audio featuring celebrity voice talents from the current Scooby-Doo series: Be Cool, Scooby-Doo!, along with other legendary voice professionals.

Want to know more? Of course! First, there’s an incredible selection of Scooby products here. That got my kids excited for the hours of content and numerous storyline combinations! It also helps to have FREE Printables! Get yours here. And of course, for more information about the Amazon Alexa & Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. Theater skill, go here, or click on any of my photos! If you’re looking for an amazing fun family night, this is your ticket! We had a blast.
