Unless you have been living under a stone – you would know that we at KSJ HQ luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurve Toca Boca apps. Or digital toys as they cleverly call them. And today – they launch their latest – Toca Nature.
Let’s have a butchers…(hmmm maybe a bad choice of words given the subject)…let us watch a trailer..
This app has a different feel to their other apps. It captures the wonder and magic of the natural world with its unique, dream-like style.
The app designer Mårten Brüggemann, says “Toca Nature doesn’t aim to replace the experience of going out in an actual forest, but instead builds on these experiences, adding a mystical edge. Children are totally in charge of sustaining their virtual world, which is alive in itself but still dependent on their care and attention.”
Kids can create and explore their own environment, populating it with different species of plants and animals, sculpting the landscape with lakes, mountains and different types of forest and woodland.
Different types of food will also begin to grow in certain environments, and players can gather these foodstuffs in order to feed the animals which have appeared. Children will need to find out for themselves what are the animals’ favourite snacks!
The app encourages children to think about how different aspects of the environment connect and interact.
As with all of Toca Boca’s digital toys, Toca Nature has an intuitive, child-friendly interface, and there are no in-app purchases or external advertising. There are no rules, with the app being inherently non-competitive and
Naturellement, I say – get busy and make those kids happy bunnies! Available from iTunes £1.99/€2.69 NOW!
