CBeebies Playtime Island App Launches
The BBC today launched CBeebies Playtime Island, a brand new free app for pre-schoolers and their parents to discover and play their favourite CBeebies games. Available now on Android, iOS and Amazon Fire devices, the app was co-designed by CBeebies audiences and the BBC Children’s app team in Salford.
Many new games, features and surprises lie in wait for users too – first up, a festive feel to the island in December and, soon after, children will be able to build their very own Playtime Island by adding the games that they want, parachuting them down from the cloud to dry land. A game library and downloads will also be coming soon.
The new app builds on the hugely successful CBeebies Playtime and Storytime apps, which have been downloaded over nine million times collectively, and will be the main place for new CBeebies mobile games. The original CBeebies Playtime app will still be available for those that play it and love it, but all new games will be released onto CBeebies Playtime Island and to the CBeebies website.
