Toca Kitchen 2, as with its predecessor Toca Kitchen, shines as a platform for no-rules, no-right-or-wrong-answer, open-ended play. With the safety of using virtual knives and fire, kids take on the role of chef to cook, combine, and create unique dishes. Navigation among the various screens -- for example, getting a piece of food out of the fridge, into a cooking instrument, and then on the guest's plate -- may prove difficult for the littlest chefs, so be sure to be available for guidance. There are some neat features, such as how food browns as it's cooked or steams when it comes out of the hot oven. However, there's something important missing in this virtual kitchen -- the feel of soft bread or slimy fish -- and that heavenly smell of something yummy baking in the oven just can't be replicated with a 2-D screen. Toca Kitchen 2 is a fun and creative game that can perhaps be an inspiration for enjoying the wonders of creating in a real-world kitchen.

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.
