Team17, a global games label, creative partner and developer of independent video games and edutainment apps for children, has announced that its subsidiary StoryToys has partnered with the LEGO Group and Marvel Entertainment on the LEGO DUPLO MARVEL mobile app.

The new app will allow preschoolers to join Spidey, Captain America, Ghost-Spider and other heroes for learning adventures and imaginative play. Each activity will feature a play experience where kids can help their favourite Marvel hero save the day by shooting webs with Spidey and his Amazing Friends or rescuing a kitten with Captain America.

The LEGO DUPLO MARVEL app is aligned with the Headstart Early Learning Outcomes Framework to ensure it meets the developmental needs of 2–5-year-olds. Each activity will feature fun and engaging challenges to support learning and development skills including early maths, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving.

The LEGO DUPLO MARVEL app launches worldwide in 28 languages initially, with more to come in 2022. The app is now available for pre-order on the App Store and Google Play and will launch in December 2021. The LEGO DUPLO MARVEL app will be free to download and include additional content to purchase.

StoryToys has produced apps with many leading children’s brands, including LEGO, Disney, Pixar, Penguin, Warner Bros, Sesame Workshop, Hasbro and Nickelodeon. Key titles include LEGO DUPLO WORLD, Disney Coloring World, and Hungry Caterpillar Play School.
