Make Every Day a Vacation Adventure!
- Parker Barry
On June 16, Toca Boca releases Toca Life: Vacation, the fourth app in the wildly popular Toca Life series. Kids can now feel the excitement of running through the airport to catch a flight, jumping into a hotel bed, or digging for treasure on the beach any time they want. Just in time for summer break, Toca Life: Vacation makes every day a vacation adventure!
As with the entire Toca Life series, kids are in control of the stories they create. With four locations and a new cast of diverse characters, there are endless storytelling possibilities — kids choose who goes on the vacation and what they do when they arrive.
They can start at the airport, check their bags, pass through security and head toward the gate. Or hop directly on the plane, relax and have a snack. Once they arrive at their destination, it’s time to sightsee — whether it’s enjoying the view at the boardwalk, taking a photo in the cut-out stand or buying a souvenir at the shop, it’s all up to them. When it’s time to check into the hotel, kids can pick from one of the many rooms, enjoy the buffet and have some fun riding the elevator. After unpacking, kids can hit the beach to enjoy some sun and ice cream while discovering an ocean filled with sea creatures.
“The Toca Life series has a very enthusiastic fan base with more than 900,000 kids playing with the apps each month,” said Petter Karlsson, Play Designer at Toca Boca. “From the more than 50,000 feature requests we received, it was clear that kids wanted different elements of a travel experience. The resulting app included locations kids will love, filled with engaging play experiences and surprises.”
App features include:
- Four locations to explore: airport, hotel, beach and sightseeing
- 34 new characters to create new stories with
- X-ray luggage at the airport! Visit the cockpit and have a snack on the plane
- Fill up at the hotel buffet or raid the fridge in a hotel room
