Another day, another installment of Apple's 12 Days of Gifts. But day four of the holiday giveaway app is one for the kids. At least in the U.S., 12 Days of Gifts is currently offering a free download for a game made by the child-friendly game developer Toca Boca. The game in question is Toca House, which, as its App Store description states, is ...
... a free play toy for kids that takes them through the everyday chores of a household. Cleaning, washing windows, deliver mail, taking a bath or mopping the floor. All familiar themes for kids that they see everyday, but often can't participate it. But now they can - and it's fun too! Play a series of mini-games that take place in and around the house with five super-cute characters. When the sun sets it's time to go to bed, but you can always play another round of course. This makes it perfect for turn-taking or a break to do something else too!Previously priced at $2.99, Toca House is notably the first item to have actually gone free just before being featured in 12 Days of Gifts. In fact, it was just included in the latest edition of AppAdvice's AppsGoneFree. Apple's prior 12 Days of Gifts — including Justin Timberlake's iTunes Festival EP for day one, Tiny Thief for day two, and "Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2014" for day three — have all been free since days before the holiday giveaway app kicked off. Like its fellow gifts, though, Toca House can be downloaded for free directly from the iTunes Store (the App Store in its case), even without the 12 Days of Gifts app. Apple’s 12 Days of Gifts is available in the App Store for free. It’s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 7.0 or later.
