Playing house is a guaranteed old reliable when it comes to keeping the kids happily entertained. That’s why a visit to Toca Life: Neighborhood is a sure-fire way to bring lots of smiles to the faces of your little ones (and you too, no doubt). You’re about to be welcomed to a brand-new neighbourhood that’s jam-packed with friendly characters, cute cafés and a selection of apartments that are totes the cutest!
Are you more of a minimalist when it comes to your interior tastes; a fan of retro styling perhaps; keen on something slightly more hippyish; or maybe you’re simply in love with anything and everything mega cute? Whatever your style, you’ll be able to find the perfect place to set up home in this game.
When you enter an apartment, you’ll find it filled with your favourite things including furniture and appliances, flowerpots and toys. You can tap most things on the screen to move and rearrange them however you want so it can really start to feel like your own. And if you want to really put your interior design stamp on the space, visit the design shop, pick up some new things and get to work decorating.
Now it’s time to make some friends. Tap the yellow icon at the bottom right to show a line-up of Toca’s characters that you can play with; they’re a cool bunch! Have fun cooking together, relaxing on the sofa or head to the Rob-O Café and order a juice from the giant robot behind the counter. You can choose the ingredients or pick something tasty from the conveyor belt of food passing by, you can even change the direction and speed of it.
If you’re in the mood for some retail therapy, check out the general store. Browse the aisles and pick out a new cushion, a clock or a plant perhaps and take it home. Your place is really starting to look incredible.
If you tap and hold the light-blue icon on the top right of the screen, you can record a mini movie; and be sure to snap a selfie with your pals in the photo booth.
The buzzy, colourful world of Toca Life: Neighborhood is always exciting, and spending time with your kids playing along as they move their favourite pieces of furniture and characters around is a real-life joy.
