Alongside Minecraft and other sandbox-style creation toys and games, Toca Builders holds its own. The builder characters will appeal to kids drawn to stories, and the open-ended creation possibilities put kids in charge of their fun. Some characters move directionally using a gear-like shifter. Some move using a roller ball. Switching back and forth can get a little confusing, but most of the other controls are easy to pick up and fun to play around with. Parents who have had their device's camera roll fill up with their kids' Toca Boca creations will appreciate that Toca Builder's default is not linked to the camera roll. It can be changed in the game's settings. Creations are automatically saved, too, and kids can revisit them. It would be nice if all of the builders could enter the buildings kids create, but some are taller than six blocks, the maximum number of blocks the game allows players to stack.

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.
