What our experts think
Toca Boca have created another wonderful app that provides a platform for the children to use their imagination and creative skills. We really liked the concept at being able to add your own new ‘fabrics’ using the fabric camera. Developing a sense of identity is an important part of childhood and this really allows children to experiment in a playful way helping them to develop their personal taste.
It would be even better if...
…it was clearer to a new user that you tap and drag on the main screen to change the clothes styles and tailoring.
