Learning apps for kids: Toca Kitchen

Toca Kitchen is one of Reading Kingdom’s recommended learning apps for kids. Tim Donovan from YogiPlay explains why:

“Like many people, I grew up in a home where the kitchen was truly the center of all activity.

I can remember returning from school to be greeted by the scent of fresh baked bread, cookies or pies and hearing that all-too-familiar sound of my mother making family dinner before my father and brothers got home for the day.

Mom would pull up an old wooden chair for me to stand on so that I could see her work her magic as she sliced, diced, minced and mixed meat, vegetables, grains, butter and cheeses into a fantastic, edible extravaganza.

Those fond memories of being in the kitchen with my Mom have never left me. In fact, it was those special times that eventually turned me into the bonafide foodie that I am today.

If you have a child at home who, like me, enjoys anything to do with being in the kitchen, do we have an app for you!

Welcome to the amazing world of Toca Kitchen, produced by one of our favorite mobile developers Toca Boca. Toca Kitchen is a culinary adventure that puts every child into the “chef’s seat.”

This well-designed app comes with four adorable creatures (two of which are an adorable cat and an equally cute bull) that children can cook for, each with their individual favorite foods. There are 12 ingredients that can be prepared in over 150 different ways, including slicing, boiling, frying or using a microwave.

And what’s really great about this app — children get to explore real cooking concepts without a parent having to worry about a child’s safety or that inevitable mess that comes with children learning how to cook for the first time.

Toca Kitchen is available for $0.99. Click here to download

While the app is $1.99, it’s well worth the investment. The artwork is awesome and the digital food looks so good, you might want to take a bite out of your smartphone or tablet.”
