Best Toca Boca Apps

Few app makers become household names, but Toca Boca has done just that. For the preschool set, they combine fun exploration with a gender-neutral approach and a kid-safe sensibility. Though they don't promise to teach the ABCs or 123s, they do offer opportunities for storytelling and unique experiences that range from playing hairstylist to creating biomes for different animals. They also have a series of virtual dollhouses that let kids play in all kinds of environments, including a hospital, an office, and a school. No matter what your kids' interests are, there's likely a Toca Boca app that will capture their imagination and let them have a fun and safe digital experience.
