23 Feb StoryToys and Marvel Entertainment to Launch New Marvel HQ App
StoryToys expands their partnership with Marvel with new app launching May 2023.
Dublin, Ireland – February 15, 2023 – StoryToys, a wholly owned subsidiary of Team17 Group plc, and Marvel Entertainment are expanding their collaboration by announcing the new Marvel HQ app, designed for families and kids. Launching in May 2023, Marvel HQ is now available for pre-order on the App Store and Google Play.
Marvel HQ will be an edutainment hub designed for kids ages 4-7, containing fun and age-appropriate games, videos, creative activities, books, comics, and interactive characters from across the Marvel Universe. StoryToys will develop and publish the app.
StoryToys and Marvel Entertainment have also successfully collaborated on the Kidscreen 2023 Winner/Nominee app for preschoolers, LEGO® DUPLO® MARVEL.
Once the Marvel HQ app launches later this year, children can practice problem-solving by coding a path for Hulk, unleash their creativity with coloring activities, and learn to draw their favorite Marvel characters. The app will support budding readers with voice-supported books and digital comics. Kids can test their Marvel character knowledge with interactive quizzes, and the video section will be jam-packed with series and specials, like Marvel’s Spidey and His Amazing Friends and Avengers Mech Strike.
“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!”
Dan Buckley, president of Marvel said “When we first launched Marvel HQ, we wanted to create an easy, fun, family-friendly space for parents to be able to explore the world of Marvel with their kids,” said Dan Buckley, President of Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel HQ became our go-to family platform for video and educational content, comics, and more, and we’ve been working to broaden it further since then. Through this new app with StoryToys, we’re excited to add even more Marvel HQ experiences, including games and activities, for families to share.”
Marvel HQ will be frequently updated with new content and available worldwide in thirteen languages. It will be free to download, and some content will require a subscription. Marvel HQ is available for pre-order on the App Store and Google Play.
