There is a digital toy maker from Sweden that is one of the top children’s app developers in the world. Toca Boca is comprised of talented individuals that think playing and having fun is the best way to learn about the world and all that is contained within it. They make digital toys and games that help stimulate your child’s imagination, and, most importantly that you can play together with your kids. We love that so many of their apps depend on imaginative play, something that seems to be neglected in our busy world today. Toca Band, the newest app by Toca Boca, certainly meets and exceeds all our expectations and more. But MORE importantly our “tiny testers” absolutely LOVE it!
As you can see in the video the app is fun and somewhat silly, which the kids love! Each of the 16 different musical characters has their own unique personality and contributes a distinct sound to the band. As each character takes the stage music develops! Move them around to see how it affects the sound produced. Make one a star on the ascending stage and see how your child can manipulate, make new sounds, music and songs.

Be sure to go “backstage” to the Parents’ Area for ideas on “What to Talk About,” things that are “Good to Know” and how to tweak your settings so they are best for you.
