The Pokemon Company International launched Pokemon Playhouse today, an app designed for children between the ages of 3–5 years. The app, which is the first-ever official digital Pokemon experience for preschoolers, is available now on iPhone, iPad, and Android devices as a free download without in-app purchases.
In Pokemon Playhouse, aspiring Pokemon Trainers can explore an adorable indoor and outdoor playhouse environment featuring a wide variety of entertaining and engaging activities. As they explore Pokemon Playhouse, preschoolers will encounter cute, never-before-seen expressions of Pokemon such as Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Litten, and Snorlax. The more that young Trainers play, and the more activities they complete, the closer they get to hatching Eggs that feature additional adorable Pokemon to play with and add to their collection. In all, there are over 50 beloved and recognizable Pokemon for young Trainers to discover and engage with.
Every location within Pokemon Playhouse features activities created just for younger Pokemon fans, such as taking care of Pokemon in the Pokemon Grooming activity, or identifying Pokemon in the night sky in the Search the Stars feature. The bond between players and their Pokemon pals can also be strengthened by starting a musical band, feeding them tasty treats, or taking them to an interactive park. Trainers can also develop critical thinking skills by practicing puzzles or engaging in an in-app story time which deepens the backstory of the Pokemon friends in the playhouse. A friendly human character hosts and narrates all the activities so children can enjoy every aspect of Pokemon Playhouse regardless of their learning level.
“The Pokemon brand truly is a property for all ages, and the ability to complete activities with cute new expression of recognizable Pokemon in Pokemon Playhouse offers our youngest fans the opportunity to explore the world of Pokemon in an environment made just for them,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of Consumer Marketing at The Pokemon Company International. “As the popularity of the Pokemon brand continues to grow, we’re thrilled to launch the first-ever Pokemon preschool expression with Pokemon Playhouse, offering parents an age-appropriate and entertaining experience for the littlest Trainers in their family.” For more information about Pokemon Playhouse please visit the official website: https://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-news/welcome-to-the-pokemon-playhouse/.
