Developer Toca Boca has created a name for itself by designing kid-friendly apps that empower kids to be playful, to be creative and to be who they want to be. We picked their app named Toca Nature, which allows little ones to create and interact with the mesmerizing natural landscape. In other words, it’s an app that helps kids learn about the wonders of nature by building and taking care of the forest using their own imagination and creativity.
Toca Nature is a creative and interactive game where the kids can use their imagination to build landscapes. At the beginning of the game, kids will see a piece of land floating in space and their job is to raise up mountains, create water-filled holes, and plant trees – using the tools placed at the bottom of the screen. As kids build their forest, animals, namely, wolf, bear, rabbit, fox, woodpecker, deer, and fish will start showing up.
Each animal is tied to a specific nature type, for example, wolves are only found on snowy mountains and foxes in a forest of oaks. Kids are also supposed to collect berries, mushrooms, and nuts to feed the animals. Kids can also zoom in and explore the virtual landscapes they’ve created, and tap on the built-in camera icon to capture various moments. For example, kids can capture the moment of woodpeckers zigzagging between trees. All in all, it is a thoughtfully designed educational game that parents must download to introduce the wonders of nature to their children.
