January App Recommendations

Hello and Happy 2016!

   It is always big news when a new Toca Boca app is released and a brand new one has just hit the market. (Ages 6-8)  For those of you that have been loyal blog readers you are quite familiar with the terrific offerings of Toca Boca previously recommended. Now, “Toca Blocks,” gives children building blocks that they can use to construct their own worlds. They can combine different blocks to produce everything from water, trees and sticky surfaces while creating full fledged environments with characters as well. It allows for lots of detailed language, and story telling making it a fun filled learning tool. It targets older children than usual but is just as creative as all previous offerings and a true find!

   As additional food for thought where the younger children are concerned you might enjoy this article:
