StoryToys, a subsidiary of Team17 Group plc, the LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment have announced the launch of LEGO DUPLO MARVEL, a mobile app for preschoolers. With over one million pre-orders globally, the app is now available from App Store and Google Play.
In LEGO DUPLO MARVEL, even the youngest Marvel fan can engage with their favourite Super Heroes, including Spider-Man, Captain America, Ghost-Spider and more. In each activity, children help their favourite Super Hero save the day, whether shooting webs with Spider-Man or rescuing a cat with Captain America. They can also create and build structures with virtual 3D LEGO DUPLO bricks.
The app has been carefully aligned with the Headstart Early Learning Outcomes Framework to ensure it meets the developmental needs of two to five year-olds. Each play pack features fun challenges to support learning and development skills, including early math, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving.
The free to download LEGO DUPLO MARVEL app is now available worldwide in 26 languages, with more to come in 2022. Additional content is available to purchase.
“As a lifetime fan of both Marvel and LEGO bricks, this project is one that’s very close to my heart,” says Emmet O’Neill, CEO of StoryToys.
“We’re delighted to once again be collaborating with our amazing partners at the LEGO Group, and to be working with Marvel for the first time on such a special project. Preschoolers adore and aspire to be Marvel heroes and this app will offer them a positive digital experience tailored to their abilities.
“Whether kids are LEGO DUPLO fans, Marvel fans, or both, it’s our absolute privilege to bring them the opportunity to engage with their favourite heroes in this fun and educational digital experience.”
