What is Toca Doctor?

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. 

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.

Is Toca Doctor safe for kids?

Toca Doctor is safe for kids as this app that is designed with a child’s safety and success in mind. Featuring no third party advertising, Toca Doctor takes into account the concerns of parents while still providing an exciting platform for children. 

Features Toca Doctor; What we like about it

Toca Doctor focuses on treating the ailments of an assortment of patients. To relieve each patient’s ailments, users must solve a variety of unique puzzles. For example, a patient has a headache and the user must relieve it by correctly matching a number of animated shapes to the correct corresponding outline. Other puzzles include practicing hand-eye coordination or fine motor skills and dexterity by touching moving objects or guiding shapes through small mazes. 

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.

This 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. 

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.

How Toca Doctor works?

In this app, kids will be given a patient who has various issues that need fixing. In order to fix these problems kids will need to complete a mini-game. These games work on their motor skills, puzzle solving skills, color skills, and more. So while they’re busy having fun they’re actually learning at the same time.

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.

What skills will children develop?

Toca Doctor is useful in teaching body parts, names and functions. It can also be used to teach following directions, descriptive words and verbs. There are no words within the app, just sounds and noises during play. The therapist or the child can provide the necessary verbalizations.

Final Thoughts

Toca Doctor is a highly stylized, family friendly educational iOS game based entirely around the human body.
