Repetitive but worthwhile

My 2 year old loves this game and manipulating all the characters to make different sounds. I just wish it had other tunes.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

Toca Band is an inventive app for kids to learn about and explore music. It does a great job of providing the basics in a fun, kid-appropriate way. Kids can learn about specific instruments and their sounds through playing each character. When played together, the characters allow kids to experiment with variations in rhythm and tempo. With the hands-off, exploratory approach here, some kids will get more out of this than others. The experience is what kids make of it. The Parent Center discussion topics can help parents and kids maximize the learning experience.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
