Mystery and History at Sleep time with The Sword of Welleran

A bit of a dark story from famed fantasist and progenitor of modern fantasy Lord Dunsany. Dunsany’s speciality was writing stories that felt like ‘real’ myths from a forgotten time in our world and this is no exception. The story of a great city, whose greatness and the warriors that led to it was in the past. And the challenges that arise from that.

This one does get a bit exciting, but the cadence is mysterious so I’m sure you will fall asleep before the exciting bit arrive. And those are only relative anyway.

SleepPhones, our exciting partnership

In our experience the best way to experience the bedtime stories of Sleepy Time Tales is with some type of headphone or earbud, but they can be cumbersome and uncomfortable.

So we’ve partnered SleepPhones, manufacturers of headphones designed specifically to sleep in! They use a thin speaker fitted to a comfortable headband and have options from the cost effective wired headphones to the convenient Bluetooth model and will work with Sleepy Time Tales to improve your night’s sleep.
