The Chuggington: Terrific Trainee App, from Starz, has pulled into the iTunes App Store. It’s ready to depart, taking young kids on a train adventure they’ll be sure to cherish. The app is based on the CGI-animated Disney Junior show and interactive website that follows the adventure of trainees Wilson, Brewster, and Koko, as they overcome obstacles, both literal and figurative. The show is aimed at social and emotional development for younger children, and the app is no different.
The Chuggington App follows the cast of characters through 16 missions, where kids can make the trains jump, fly, speed up, and load and unload deliveries. Certain badges can be earned depending on how well each mission was completed. The missions bring an extra level of interactivity to the world of Chuggington, helping preschoolers to learn about forming last relationships with others.
The Chuggington: Terrific Trainee App is available now on the iTunes App Store for $1.99, for the iPhone, iPod Touch and $2.99 for the iPad.
