Similar App- Play and Learn Tailoring- Design and Catwalk app

I went ahead and searched for similar apps on tailoring, fashion and crafts for kids. I found an app called Fashion House: Catwalk Designer by Lala and Boom. This app has a real education value as well as the fun play side. I can play and learn with my little girl how one can make costumes and dresses etc.. This app is really good, highly recommend it.

Is It Any Good?

What's nice about Toca Tailor in comparison with other fashion apps is that it feels more gender inclusive and appropriate for younger kids. The bright colors, patterns, and designs don't skew towards the stereotypical girl themes we often see in similar apps. In addition, the models kids dress include boys, girls, and animal characters.

There is one feature that might frustrate kids. When kids dress the models, the characters make facial expressions and sounds that aren't always pleasant -- sometimes the characters sound surprised or even disapproving. Some kids might be a little discouraged if it sounds like the characters don't like their outfits.

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.
