Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that, though most Toca Boca apps are for preschoolers, Toca Builders was designed for kids ages 5 to 11. For kids not quite ready for or interested in Minecraft, Toca Builders offers sandbox-style play where kids can create worlds. It’s easier to pick up and play than Minecraft, and there’s no fighting or monsters.

Toca Builders is a Education app that is designed for those 6.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.

Toca Builders is available for $.99-$2.99 On The Following Devices:

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Since kids direct their experience — from what to build to which builder to use — they’re in control of their fun and engagement. The controls take a little getting used to, but the design is beautiful.

The Support Level for Toca Builders is about a 3 out of 5.

Players are left to figure out most of the gameplay on their own, which is part of the learning (and fun) experience. The parents section includes written instructions. The app saves each world automatically.
