What is it
In the Gocco Playroom app, children play with a cat called Necco in 3 different locations. The children’s room, kitchen and on the beach. In each room there are different interactive items including toys and food. As well as things to do in each room, children will also find a magical toy box. Any item you put in it in one place can be taken out in another. You can deliver fresh crops to the kitchen, bring your favorite toys to the beach, and even take a photo at the sushi counter.
There are no rules or goals other than to have fun.

What our experts think
We liked the simplicity of this app – children use their creativity and imagination to play with the cat in his surroundings. There is lots to explore and children will love finding different things for the cat to do. By clicking around the screen and moving things children will find a wealth of interactive objects (we found more each time we played!)
It would be even better if...
Whilst free play is so valuable and encourages children’s imagination, it would be great to see optional challenges to encourage children to listen and follow instructions adding to the educational value.
