If you are the parent of one or more kids that are around the preschool age, you are probably no stranger to Toca Boca games for iPhones and iPad. But even if you never heard of them, you’re up for a great treat today: we’re sharing the best Toca Boca games for kids!
We have played, tested and spent countless hours (or at least our kids did for the last part!) playing Toca Boca apps and the verdict is ready to be given: you’ll find below our top picks and most fun Toca Boca games today.
In case you haven’t heard about them already, Toca Boca is an app developer focused on delivering high quality applications and games for young kids. Their apps are played and loved by children worldwide and your kids will surely love them as well.
But since they have released over 40 applications and the numbers are growing – and you can’t have your kid play that many – we’re here to help you select the best of the best and make sure that the ones you choose to install will be instantly loved by your kid(s).
Below are the best 10 Toca Boca games for kids, in no particular order though as ranking them is really difficult. But at least we reduced the number to 10, which is a lot more manageable.
Toca Life: School
Toca Life: School has five unique locations for telling stories about life at school. Head out to the playground and coach a basketball team, conduct a science experiment in the classroom and jam with your band in the youth club!
All characters (34 of them!), and anything they are holding, can easily be moved between locations, allowing the little ones to create whatever adventures they are in the mood for at the moment. A delight for kids and a game that makes them appreciate school and understand that it can be really fun to be there.
Toca Life: World
This is sort of an “one app to include them all” from Toca Boca. It is basically a virtual world for kids, where they get access to many of the other independent apps (like City, Vacation, Office, Hospital and more) and have them all in one place.
A ton of options are available here, with tens of characters and tons of locations to choose from, offering endless possibilities when it comes to helping the little ones have fun, develop their creativity and create their own stories and adventures. A really solid game – and if there’s just one that you want to install, its this one!
With this app, you can create a whole new world with blocks. Jump, walk, roll and rotate the builders to use their unique skills, and they will help to build whatever you can imagine!
Drop, spray, smash and lift blocks to construct new objects – and your imagination is the only limit. This is definitely for older kids (I’d say that 6-10 would be a fair age).
Toca Life: Vacation
After checking out Toca Life School above, it’s time to prepare for a vacation! With four locations to explore in Toca Life: Vacation, you’ll never run out of ideas for your stories.
Want to start your adventure at the airport? Have fun with the X-ray machine, board the plane and visit the cockpit. Then get a snack and enjoy your flight!
At your destination, you have many choices for activities: shopping and sightseeing on the boardwalk, playing at the beach and surfing in the ocean and exploring the hotel.
A ton of things to do and guaranteed entertainment for days. Perfect for building up excitement before an actual family vacation!
Toca Hair Salon Me
Toca Hair Salon Me lets you be the customer and the stylist! Curly, straight or purple? Create a funky hairdo any way you like. Grow it long or cut it short, shave one side or spray paint it every color of the rainbow.
The possibilities are endless and the children will love this, especially if parents and other relatives join in for some funky hairstyles created by the little ones!
Toca Blocks is a unique world-building app that lets you create worlds, play in them and share them with friends.
Different than Toca Builders – or with a different approach, at least – this app will help kids develop their creativity and patience as it takes a while to create a functional world. But they will see that it is worth all the trouble and if Minecraft and Roblox are any indication (two games similar in concept with this one), the kids won’t get enough of it!
Again, this game is recommended for kids aged 6 and older because of its complexity.
Toca Life: City
Say hi to 6 locations and 34 characters! Go shopping at the mall, grab a bite to eat at the food park or invite friends over to your loft.
Try, experiment and customize: Change outfits, dye your hair any color and switch hairstyles in the Hair 3000! There are millions of ways to personalize the characters and the little ones will surely have fun trying to create them all in this stand alone Toca Life game.
Toca Kitchen 2
The game that allows you to mix any ingredients and create the wackiest foods for your virtual guests, then check their reactions when they eat your creations.
Fun and exciting, with tons of possible combinations and ways to prepare them, this game will surely keep the kids entertained for a long time.
This is a great app to inspire kids to love science. Featuring all the elements in the periodic table, as well as imaginary & fun combinations and effects, Toca Lab makes science extremely fun. Lots of actions and activities in a surprisingly good app that kids will love!
Shape nature and watch it develop. Plant trees and grow a forest. Raise a mountain and enjoy the view. Collect berries, mushrooms or nuts, and feed the different animals. Learn who eats what and discover how much it takes to winkle a bear out.
Walk through different landscapes and become friends with a fox. Kids have control over the elements and this app will not only keep them busy and entertained for long periods of time, but it will also make them curious to find out more about our world.
Bonus: Toca Mystery House
Really, we couldn’t just stop at picking 10 Toca Boca games to recommend, so we had to offer one bonus entry that I am sure the entire family will love – although kids will appreciate it the most.
This game offers them a colorful, delightful (yet kid-friendly) world to dive into – but this time a bit spookier than otherwise.
Still, you won’t have to worry about your kids having nightmares after playing it, as it allows them to experiment with various potions, visit different creatures and play with a ton of slime. Kids will love it for sure!
Most – if not all – apps and games created by Toca Boca are great, we know that! But the ones above are the best of the best in our opinion and we hope that this list will make it easier for you to choose the next couple of apps for your kids.
