Explain the puzzles health meaning to the kids

More arcade than an educational title. The kids are having a great time popping bugs and destroying germs. If you will discuss each puzzle with them, maybe you can tell them a little bit of each puzzle meaning in health/medical terms they can understand. This kind of interaction will turn this to an educational app.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids will enjoy the simple animations and clean but catchy graphics and sound effects in TOCA DOCTOR. The puzzles can be a bit repetitive, but enjoyably so for preschoolers. Kids will have to learn several different skills to solve the puzzles, and may need help at first. Overall, it's great for kids to have this positive exposure to the workings of their bodies and to doctors' activities, including cleaning teeth, eliminating lice, and giving shots. We'd recommend this app for kids who are nervous about visiting the doctor, but you'll have to keep in mind that some of the puzzles are just for plain silly fun!

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.
