With Toca Kitchen, Toca Hair Salon, Toca Store, Toca Tailor and much more, the kids-app maker Toca Boca is on a roll. After spending some time with their music app, Toca Band, I realize why they have crossed 22 million downloads.
Toca Boca has released a theme song for their company and with the Toca Band app, your kid gets to remix and mashup it anyway he wants. This simple-to-use app gives alot of flexibility and creativity at your toddler’s hands, so that each cover he makes, sounds unique yet unbelievably soothing.
The interface consists of an 8 seated stage and 16 toony artists in the backstage. The instruments include drums, piano, harp, whistle, maraca, accordion etc, while singing, opera and rapping form the vocals. All the junior needs to do is, drag a character from the inventory, to a position on the stage. Each avatar as well each seat is unique and different combinations produce variants of the Toca song.
“”Toca Band is not a game – it’s a toy where you and your kids get to explore music together.
As with all Toca Boca toys, there are no high scores, time limits or stress.””
The colorful characters and simple animations draw the attention of any toddler. Although only one song is available, the vast range of variations provide a never-boring experience (more songs will always be welcome). The app is rightly placed in the Education category since there is alot here to learn for a 5 year old. To conclude, Toca Band is a wonderful app if you want your kid to be in touch with music, not to leave out that it is equally entertaining to the parent as well.

Learning Curve:Low, best for your child
Who Is It For:Kids under 10 years
What I Like:The colorful animations and the Toca song
What I Don't Like:None, I could find!
Final Statement:Your kid will love it!
