New ARTHUR app from PBS KIDS!


PBS KIDS  has a new APP! This one is a fun one for the younger kids! Arthur’s Big App for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, a new app inspired by the hit series ARTHUR. Designed for children ages 6-8, Arthur’s Big App encourages positive social skills through fun and engaging multi-level games. Focusing on the values of friendship, teamwork and helping others, each game allows kids to explore Elwood City and interact with their favorite ARTHUR characters. The app is available for $2.99 on the App Store and is also available on the Amazon App Store since October 2, and on Google Play and the Nabi Store on October 16.

ARTHUR airs weekdays on PBS KIDS and is produced by WGBH, and will premiere its 18th season next Monday (9/29). Arthur’s Big App offers the following features:

  • Four unique mini-games hosted in memorable locations around Elwood City
  • More than 15 levels per game
  • Randomization of gameplay to keep kids engaged
  • 50 collectable characters from throughout the history of the series
  • A music game in which kids can enjoy a variety of well-known tunes, including the ARTHUR theme song
  • A smoothie game in which kids create delicious treats for Sugar Bowl customers
  • A library game that challenges kids to find and shelve books before time runs out
  • A freeze tag game in which kids “freeze” ARTHUR characters – a fun, digital twist on a classic playground game

We checked this one out and it is fun! My son is a little older than the recommended age but it wasn’t too long ago when he loved Arthur! He gives this one a thumbs up for kids ages 6-8. I like that it has so many characters and so many different things kids can do!
