The app allows students to create and build using six individually unique block laying/tiling robots. Kids will love the unique opportunities available in the app as its fun, colorful, and easy to play.  

Teacher Review

A collection of builders with unique abilities in a sandbox world, where your child can create unique structures out of different colored blocks and snap photos of their work. It is an excellent way for your child to get creative, without making a huge mess on the floor, like with Legos.

Toca Builders is designed so that its interface will be easy for kids to use, making it the perfect choice for children with imaginations. Kids will have plenty of fun organising the six characters to build weird and wonderful structures.

PROS

  • Manipulating the six different characters is fun.
  • The interface is easy for kids to learn.

CONS

  • Will be of limited appeal to older players.
  • The graphics are rather sparse and unpolished.
