What is it
Toca Boo is a fun, new app from Toca Boca that features Bonnie who loves to spook her family. The player helps Bonnie float around the 6 rooms in her house looking for hiding places before other family members come into the room. If she manages to hide in time she will jump out with a great BOO!
There are many hiding places to discover – under tables, behind curtain, under duvets or even in the toilet! Search the rooms but stay away from the light or else you’ll be seen. Rattle things, turn on the kettle and make the characters nervous before you are ready to say BOO!
There are other features to discover too – turn on the disco music and dance, munch on peppers in the kitchen for an extra hot scare, and enjoy being invisible.

What our experts think
Such a fun app that children enjoy playing again and again! Whilst this app aims to be fun rather than educational, for any preschooler who is shy and nervous this is a great app to help them grow in confidence. A few youngsters who tried this app were initially slightly scared by the spooky appearance but when they discovered they got to do all the scaring they loved it.
There is such a lot to explore that this app is also good for encouraging preschoolers/toddlers to discover and try different things to see the results. This is such an important skill and the reward in this app is obvious – many giggles were observed. Just beware – you may find your child popping out from every conceivable place to scare you in the real world once they’ve tried this app too.
