It’s a bold claim when a company emails you describing themselves as “The World’s Leading Digital Toy Developer”, but when that company is Swedish app developer Toca Boca, it’s completely justified.

App Review: Toca Cars

Toca Cars - choice of drivers

I may have mentioned once or twice before that the geek family are huge fans of Toca Boca apps on iOS (and now slowly coming to Android as well). They are one of a small handful of kids app developers who I will happily buy anything they produce. Imagine our excitement when we heard that […]
