Screen Play App of the Week: Toca Store
October 6, 2011
© Toca Store
Works on: iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad
Cost: Special introductory $1.99 price
For: Kids who love playing “store”
With a toy cash register and a little imagination, it’s amazing how easily kids can turn pillows, goldfish crackers, puzzle pieces, even the family dog, into inventory for a store. Little shopkeepers will delight when they experience Toca Store, a brand new app from Toca Boca, one of my favorite kids’ app developers.
Toca Store is an interactive app that engages multiple kids and lets them experience what it’s like to open their own store. One child can be the shopkeeper, selecting what to sell from a wide variety of goods, while another child can be the shopper, making purchases, paying and packing them up. It’s an interactive app for multiple kids or can easily engage one child who gets to play both roles. Kids learn about making choices, counting, money, and also get the pleasure of selling their wares to their very special “customers”!
(Full disclosure: These apps were developed by Toca Boca, a division of our parent company Bonnier in Sweden.)
