For Grown-Ups

Welcome to our design letter

Toca Mini inspires kids all ages to engage in creative play. Every Mini starts with the same blank canvas, a three-dimensional figurine, who is looking to be whatever your child’s imagination can dream up!

Toca Mini comes to life as soon as your child opens the app. It reacts with admiration and surprise while your child adds color and shapes. Give the Mini a mouth and your child can hear its voice, or add eyes and watch them blink. Simply let the Mini be and it will pass time by waving, singing, and dancing and even try to scare!

The inviting environment of Toca Mini combined with fun and innovative tools make it easy for kids to get inspired. Tap the characters body to open the tools and get started!

Facial features: Drag and drop eyes, nose, mouth or eyebrows on the Mini. All facial features can be moved and removed at any time.

Stamps: Put stamps in different shapes and forms on the Mini. When your child drags a stamp they can rotate it by moving another finger in a circular motion. To make the stamp larger or smaller move fingers in and out. Only the last stamp placed can be moved or removed. To use different stamp colors tap the color wheel.

Paint: Tap a color to select. Paint it by dragging the finger up and down. The color is painted all around the character.

We’ve put a lot of effort into making sure that all children will be able to create a Mini. Even the smallest ones will be able to paint it in different colors. The animated facial features provides fast fun and the ready-made stamps can be used to easily make scars, buttons, shoelaces and hearts!

For the advanced user there are also geometrical stamps to color, rotate, scale and combine to create unique patterns. Complement them with paint and it the result will be very impressive. Check out the Minis on the start screen for added inspiration!

Be Inspired:
* A Mini can be anyone! Make a superhero, a cat, or a best friend. Or why not a robot or an alien.
* Change the background to better fit the unique character.
* Try creating a Toca Boca character or a one from a favorite book.
* Rotate the Mini to design in all angles. Use stamps to create back pockets on jeans, put a tail on the animal or maybe a pair of eyes on the neck?
* Create great hair with stamps in the shape of bangs, curls and tails.

Share the Mini
Take a photo of the Mini as soon as it’s finished. Wait for it to make the perfect pose! Start over the Mini waves goodbye and a brand new and shiny Mini will appear. Who should that be?
