Disney Junior launches “Doc McStuffins: Time For Your Check Up!” app for iOS systems.
Disney/ABC Television Group’s Digital Media team has launched the Doc McStuffins: Time For Your Check Up! App based on the popular Disney Junior series, Doc McStuffins. The new activity based app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch allows players to join Doc, along with Hallie, Lambie and the rest of her friends for a fun-filled time fixing, sorting, exploring and caring for toys, dolls and more. Inside Doc’s clinic players can choose from four entertaining and engaging developmental activities.
Game features include:
- Check-Up – At Check-Up players stop by the clinic to help Doc diagnose and cure patients based on a number of different ailments and can stay for a loving cuddle from Lambie.
- Mixupitis – Help Doc make sure each of her toys have the correct corresponding parts by taking them apart and putting them back together again.
- Doctor’s Kit – This open-ended activity allows you to turn your iOS device’s camera into a virtual stethoscope, octoscope or X-Ray machine.
- Picture Stickers – Here players can use a variety of Doc McStuffins themed stickers to decorate pictures of their family and friends or favorite toys.
The Big Book of Boo Boos saves the names and diagnoses of cured patients so players can go back and look at them at anytime. Additionally, throughout the game players will be able to earn Doctor’s Notes prescribed with "lots of love," "kisses" and "cuddles."
The Doc McStuffins: Time For Your Check Up! App is available from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
