To me, it’s not the wheel, or the light-bulb, the telephone, the television – not even the World Wide Web.
The best invention to moi, is the iAnything (phone, pod, pad, pppppp – whatever..) More specifically…APPS. They’re like a beaudiful MUTE BUTTON for kids. Now THAT, is genius!
And I think Toca Boca are about the best around. And considering they achieved 5 million downloads 10 months after launching their first app – I’d say – we aint the only ones…
Made in Sweden (home of all things stylish – including half of myself…), they’re made for kids, created with kids and tested by kids. They don’t run ads or in-game selling. This is the real, PLAY DEAL. All apps are available to buy from iTunes from £1.49. My girls are HUGE HUGE fans and want to live in Toca Land!
Let us look at some…
Toca Hair Let your kids run their own Toca Hair Salon! Cut, color, comb, shave and blow-dry lifelike hair on six different cute characters. Using their grubby little fingers they can make any hair style they want! And of course – take a snapshot and save their creations! Rather on screen than in real life I say!
Toca Doctor Let your kids be a doctor for a day! Examine a patient and solve fun puzzles and mini-games that take place in the human body. Or if you’ve got one like my miniature hypochondriacs – find lots of new ailments to complain about…
Robot Lab Want to make a cool robot? With Toca Robot Lab you and your kids can build your own robot from pieces of scrap and see it fly straight away!
Paint my Wings Paint My Wings is a fun and easy way for kids to paint beautiful butterflies. A mirroring effect helps them create pretty patterns and they can take pictures of their favorite creations to share with their friends. And if you’re my kids – use up most of my gigabytes!
They also have a FAAAAAAHBULOUS new app coming out any day now – which I will bring you the deets on as SOON as it launches. Here’s a sneak preview….
