If you have, know, or spend any time around children, you’ve probably heard of Toca Boca, the suite of popular kids’ apps like Toca Life: City, Vacation, Neighborhood, and Farm. They’re more like toys than games, offering children a virtual world in which they can build, play, interact, and just mess around.
Toca Life: World combines all 11 Toca Life apps into a single, massive destination on iPhone and iPad. The games don’t have story lines or boss-level battles—the idea is simply to explore what the company calls “the power of play.”
World comes with more than 40 characters and nine locations, including a wacky hair salon and a colorful mall. Kids can play hide-and-seek. Or make a lunch. Or get a green Mohawk haircut. Or just go to sleep! It’s the ultimate Toca sandbox.
Unlike earlier Toca releases, World is free to download, with more than 300 characters, 125 pets, and 60 additional locations available to buy, across different price points. Kids can also create their own characters by selecting from a staggering number of options including body types, skin colors, hair styles, and mouth and nose shapes, as well as prosthetic limbs and hearing devices.
