About Toca Doctor HD

Toca Doctor is a fun and safe collection of puzzles based on healing a sick patient. Toca Doctor is a good starting point for off-screen human body exploration and learning how doctors treat ailments. Kids can learn about how the human body works and how it can be fixed when something is broken. 

Teacher Review

Toca Doctor is a children’s game that allows them to play doctor virtually. From developer Toca Boca, Toca Doctor features 18 different mini-games that are geared towards young children. What makes Toca Doctor great for kids is that it allows children to think of doctors in a more positive light, that they are there to help you when you get hurt or aren’t feeling well. The mini-games are fun and easy for children while the art direction in the game makes everything pleasant to look at.

The app provides an excellent backdrop for education and parents can use the app to answer questions and explain things like inoculations, teeth and sugar bugs, lungs and asthma, why do tummies hurt, how to use disinfect a scrape or cut, when to put on a plaster, what can be fixed at home and when do we need a doctor or a trip to hospital. 

The game itself is really easy for children to play. The “doctor” in the game diagnosis the patient and shows areas that need to be examined. Just tap on those areas and a mini-game starts. The mini-games are quite varied and very well made. There isn’t a points system or a time limit in the games which is great because you’ll be able to play at your own pace and there isn’t any way to lose any of the games. The art for each game is very children friendly and cute and should be quite appealing to them as well.

Toca Doctor is strictly for the children. Like I said above, the games are quite easy so most puzzles can be solved by children. If for some reason they can’t solve them, it’s ok because they can still continue on with the game even if they don’t finish all the puzzles. There is no real winning or losing so children never feel pressured or discouraged. The game also makes what doctors do seem less scary to children by making what they do seem a bit more fun.
