Although it’s listed as a photo and video app, ToonCamera is really all about the illustration tools. Having the ability to switch among art styles and line quality lets kids see the effects of different techniques. Capture the same image under varying settings to see just how drastically different an image can look. By capturing images and videos, there's the opportunity for kids to practice composition and documentation skills, but that's something you can do with a regular camera as well. Some kids may find it easier to use the cartoon filters to tell a creative story, as it adds a layer between reality and fantasy.

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.
