I LOVE Toca Boca apps!! They makes learning what it should be – fun, creative, and joyful!
Toca Hair Salon, one of my favorite educational apps for toddlers! Kids go into the salon to groom 6 different characters. They can use the tools in the salon to style their hair – cut it, comb it, make it grow, shave it, color it, etc. Great sound effects are also included in this fun app. Kids or parents can take a photo of the finished creation and save it to their camera roll. If parents wish, creations may be posted on the Toca Boca Facebook page. The developers have also built-in options to turn off sounds, pictures, and news. What a great springboard for creative writing – give a character a whole new look and write a story to go with it. What a fun writing activity for a Wacky Hair Day!!

Paint My Wings is a fun coloring app from Toca Boca. Kids paint the wings of three different butterflies. They start by choosing a color and a brush. They can finger paint or “tap” paint to add color and design to the butterfly. As one wing is painted, an identical pattern appears on the other wing – perfect for a lesson on symmetry. The butterflies have quite the personalities. They talk and sing as kids paint them. They name the colors and they giggle when tickled. Finished creations can be photographed and shared with others. Paint My Wings is another creatively fun app from Toca Boca!!
