Overall Score: 88/100

version reviewed: 1.0.1

reviewed:


Best for: Interactive play, Creativity, Eye-hand coordination

What it is and what you do with it: a role-playing app with 6 interactive scenes: ambulance garage, lobby/waiting room, surgery ward, maternity unit and parents room.

Create your own stories using the characters and interactive objects available in each scene, e.g. take care for patients in beds, 'perform' a surgery, use various CAT/X-ray/USG machines, have a snack in the waiting area etc.

What we liked: the concept. Great variety of scenes. Fun characters. Tons of interactive props in each scene, including 'real' machines and medical devices. Humor and fun factor. Ease of use. No ads or other distracting features. Overall quality of the app.

Toca Lab: Plants - Android Version

Android

Overall Score: 80/100

version reviewed: 1.0

reviewed:


Best for: Interactive play, Creativity, Interaction

What it is and what you do with it: interactive play app from the Toca Lab Series (experimentation/creativity).

Play with a variety of made-up plants in your lab: soak them in water, expose them to UV light, supply with nutrients and observe how they 'react' to different stimuli (e.g. when they accidentally trip over a ball).

You can also create clones of existing plants or mix 2 plants together to create new 'species'.

What we liked: the concept. 35 different plant characters to play with. Good for experimentation and creativity. Fun illustrations and animations. Humor and fun factor (but please see the note below). Sound backgrounds and sounds.

What we didn't like: limited educational value. Do plants really reproduce by farting?
