VeggieTalesMerryLarry_300pxDreamWorks has introduced its first activity app for VeggieTales since buying the brand. Banking off of the popularity of its Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas DVD (Word Distribution), the VeggieTales: It's a Very Merry Larry Christmas app aims to appeal to kids ages 6-8.

“It's exciting to provide kids an opportunity to continue their experience with Merry Larry and the True Light of Christmas,” said Mike Nawrocki, the voice of Larry the Cucumber.

Users will help Merry Larry as he prepares for the best Christmas ever in this activity app that features storytelling through comic book-style pages. The app’s games and activities include creating and sending VeggieTales holiday greeting cards, choosing the correct holiday bag for a special treat in Elf Village and visiting the VeggieTales Holiday Silly Songs store to see Merry Larry in a music video.

After a weeklong introductory sale, the price of the app is now set at $2.99.
