Adventure Around Every Corner

If there's one thing that can be said about the Toca Town app it's that there is adventure around each and every corner. There are seven different locations to explore and kids can choose between 21 different characters to play as. They will be exploring the game as they take part in activities along the way. The game isn't filled with rules, timers, and stress instead it's about free play so kids can explore and discover at their own pace. This one is ideal for kids five and under and all the controls are meant to be kid-friendly and easy to understand and use.

This one requires iOS 5.0 or later to use and doesn't have any ads, in-app purchases, or third-party advertising to worry about. As with all Toca Boca apps they are made to be child-friendly in every aspect. It's got a very high customer rating of 4.5 out of five stars but there are still plenty of comments from users suggesting the app needs more content, some updates, and more options. Now to be fair it has recently added a bunch of content in an update just a couple of months ago.

A Look at the Content

Toca Town offers all kinds of fun and child-friendly elements that they will just love to explore. Besides the Toca characters they can opt to play with one of the five animals. The locations they can explore are an apartment, house, restaurant, police station, store, pond, and park. Each of these locations offers its own activities. For example in the restaurant they can cook 30 different dishes, meanwhile out in the park they can set up a tent and a campfire. There is a beach where their character can build sand castles, swim in the pond or throw rocks to the bottom, go fishing, and kids get to decide when it's day and night.
