The Toca Boca team released a new app called Toca Town. Toca Boca is behind many successful apps for kids, including Toca Boca Birthday Party, as recommended by expert mom Megan Peters on this very website. The philosophy behind Toca Boca’s apps is that having fun is the best way to learn.

Toca Town lets your kids explore and enjoy an interactive town full of familiar characters from other Toca Boca games. The game is open-ended, letting kids dress up the characters and do all kinds of activities—from cooking to car-washing to party-planning. Toca Town is a great opportunity for parents and kids to explore and play in the digital world. It’s available on iPhones and iPads and meant for 3 and up.

Here’s what we like about it:

  • No in-app purchases. Once you get it, your kids can run wild in their own town—or you can sit down with them and enjoy it too.
  • Adorable art. It’s clean, cute, and not gendered.
  • Freedom! Toca Town is a like a digital toybox. The possibilities will keep your kids entertained and engaged.

Check it out in the App Store for $2.99.
