Most parents are probably familiar with Toca Boca and its huge stable of fun and exciting apps for kids. And one of the developer’s most popular, Toca Blocks, has just received a huge update in the move to version 1.1
Get ready to build
The fun world-building is designed for kids 6 to 8.
If you couldn’t tell by the name, the app is all about building. Similar to other apps like Minecraft: Pocket Edition, kids are tasked with creating their own worlds.
And builders are only limited by their imagination as they can use blocks to make ponds, islands, gardens, and much more. They can then explore the creation by walking their character through all of the new environments.
Designed for kids 6 to 8, players can also merge different types of blocks to create new material and patterns.
The recent update has made the game even better. Most importantly, kids can select from a number of fun new materials to build with including dancing blocks, super bouncy blocks, transparent blocks, and colorful conveyor belt blocks. Sixteen new objects to build with have also been added.
Other improvements include a number of new sounds for objects and the ability to make it rain. Players can even take a photo of their creation to share with friends and family.
You can combine blocks to create fun and different materials. There are up to 50 different items to create. Kids can also create as many different worlds as they would like.
And when you need to build more than just a few blocks at one time, the pencil tool makes it easy. As a nice touch, it can also be used to quickly delete a number of blocks.
Share your creation
It’s easy and simple to take a quick picture of your creation to save onto the Camera Roll. It can then be shared with friends and family.
Toca Blocks is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and all iPad models. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for $2.99.
