PBS KIDS announced Thursday the launch of the WordGirl Superhero Training App for iPad and Android tablets, a new mobile app based on the series WordGirl.
In the app, kids train to be a superhero alongside WordGirl and Captain Huggy Face.
Users create their own superhero avatars and face off against WordGirl’s most famous villains in a series of four exciting games.
The app was produced by Scholastic Media – a division of Scholastic Inc., the global children‘s publishing, education and media company.
“PBS KIDS offers educational media experiences for children wherever they are, by bringing their favorite characters to a variety of platforms,” said Lesli Rotenberg, general manager, Children’s Programming, PBS.
Throughout each game in WordGirl Superhero Training, players earn fun and hilarious gear that they can use to customize their superhero avatars. Throughout the app, players can earn up to 48 pieces of gear, and within each game, there are 30 levels.
The WordGirl Superhero Training App is available for $1.99 from the App Store on iPad or at www.AppStore.com/PBSKIDS. The app is also available for Android tablets on the Amazon Appstore and Google Play.
