Teacher Review

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. 

Kids will likely enjoy this more with a bit of adult guidance early on, especially if they've never been in a hospital before. The app has more than 30 characters of various ages, genders, and ethnicities. Kids add or remove characters from the screen by dragging and dropping from the sidewalk menu. 
 
There are a lot of areas and tools that they won't be able to identify, such as the X-ray machine, surgery area (with oxygen mask and spare organs, all of whom are inexplicably smiling), and laboratory. The character options are quite diverse in age and skin tone (there's even one with a nose ring), although kids may not find a child who looks "just like" them. 
 
Kids can learn more about hospitals and what to expect, as well as give them a platform to talk about their experiences and concerns. However, this hospital leans toward the silly side. There are what seem to be germs and organs with smiley faces sitting in jars and on shelves and plenty of animal characters.

THE BEGINNING
Welcoming a new baby into the world can be a little scary and very exciting! Share in that excitement as we welcome newborn babies to Toca Life! Family members and medical staff can love and care for these tiny, swaddled cuties.

THE END
Sometimes sad moments happen in hospitals, too. The farewell room in Toca Life: Hospital gives loved ones a chance to say goodbye in a peaceful setting.

AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN
Toca Life: Hospital lets you tell make-believe stories or real-life stories about checkups, X-rays and all the everyday things that happen in a hospital.

EXPLORE UNITS ON FIVE FLOORS
In the basement, sound the siren on the ambulance in the garage or crack the code on a mysterious machine to open the doors to a secret lab! On the entrance floor, check in at the reception desk and have a seat in the waiting area, or grab a snack from the cafe. The treatment floor has tools to diagnose patients, a lab to check specimens and an operating room. The family care floor has a unit just for kids and a maternity unit with an ultrasound machine, nursery cribs and newborn babies! Patients on the general care floor can visit a peaceful garden to reflect on life. And when a loved one dies, say your final goodbyes in the farewell room.
