“We’re delighted to collaborate again with our amazing partners at Marvel on such an important project,” said Emmet O’Neill, CEO at StoryToys. “Kids deserve the opportunity to engage with Marvel content that is safe and appropriate for their age, and parents deserve peace of mind. I wish I’d had this app to share my love of Marvel with my own kids when they were younger!”
