In Ever After High Tea Party Dash, the two presidents of the school’s Royal Student Council, Apple White™ and Madeline Hatter™, are leading efforts to furnish the outdated school library with much-needed books.

Players can hire up to nine popular Ever After High characters to help manage the increasingly hectic tea parties, including Apple White™, Madeline Hatter™ and Raven Queen™.
Ever After High Tea Party Dash is the first product resulting from the agreement that Animoca Brands and Mattel announced in May to create mobile games based on Mattel’s diverse portfolio of brands.
The partnership with Mattel will see Animoca Brands jointly develop and launch a number of apps featuring Mattel’s properties.
