Toca Robot Lab App

After three or more years of curating apps, considering trialing an app, much less downloading has to have a definite function or created by trusted developers. Toca Boca apps are well developed and provide great features and fun.  Toca Robot Lab app for iPhone/iPad (regularly 2.99; requires iOS 5.0) is another Toca Boca app currently gone free!

Create a robot, step by step, follow a maze to collect stars and you are done! Time to make another robot!

The app provides three options to choose, legs, body, head, arms to create your robot, providing a fun activity to work on basic body part recognition. After building a robot, guide your robot through a maze to collect stars within the maze and to the final production magnet.

Each robot building activity can be short to complete or provides additional problem solving to collect all of the stars. Toca Robot Lab could also be used as practice for the appropriate student to work on sliding with maintained touch of your finger on the iPad.

Used as a  reward activity, this might be a motivator for some student to complete required academic or OT therapy activities.  This app appears suited for preschool through primary aged children.

Here is a quick video of the app:

At the current time this Toca Boca app is not available for Android.

If you work with young children, check it out. Free today – always a mystery how long it remains free!

Have fun!
