Is there a doctor in the house? With this app, your kid will surely feel like one. Toca Doctor is an adorable app that takes kids through areas of the body that are ailing and uses games to help kids provide a remedy. An upset tummy here, a broken bone there and it's your child to the rescue.
The full version provides 18 puzzles for the aspiring doctor in your house to solve, including getting rid of germs, putting band-aids on scrapes, helping ease digestion and many more. The graphics are crisp and colorful and the interactivity of the games – like tilting the device, tapping and dragging objects – keeps kids completely engaged. Pretty soon, they'll be asking you to open up and say, "ahhhhhh."
(Full disclosure: These apps were developed by Toca Boca, a division of our parent company Bonnier in Sweden.)
