Marvel HQ app launches today for 4-7 years olds

New ‘Marvel HQ’ Edutainment Hub is now available on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon.

The Marvel HQ app has officially launched today in collaboration with StoryToys and Marvel Entertainment. It’s an edutainment app that I had the chance to test out, and it’s perfect for kiddos 4-7 years old. The app features age-appropriate activities, videos, art, books, comics, and interactive characters from across the Marvel Universe. StoryToys has developed and published the app.

“We’re delighted to collaborate again with our amazing partners at Marvel on such an important project,” said Emmet O’Neill, CEO at StoryToys. “Kids deserve the opportunity to engage with Marvel content that is safe and appropriate for their age, and parents deserve peace of mind. I wish I’d had this app to share my love of Marvel with my own kids when they were younger!”

There are five realms of Marvel HQ:

  • Play: Packed with exciting challenges like coding Hulk’s path through a maze, Spidey and Friends car chases, jigsaws and solving holographic memory puzzles.
  • Watch: Videos related to popular Marvel series and specials, like Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends and Marvel’s Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur.
  • Meet: Kids can learn all about their favorite heroes and villains and test their knowledge with facts and image archives.
  • Read: Digital comic books and learn-to-read Super Hero stories with word support from friendly actors. Parents can explore together with their kids or let them learn independently.
