[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Owie got your toddler down? Perhaps he fell down and got a boo boo, Never fear: Toca Doctor, the latest in interactive app toys from Toca Boca is here to ease your child's pains. The world of medicine and the figure of the doctor both fascinate, and causes some distress to little children - with that in mind, the team at Toca Boca has released its third children's app Toca Doctor, an app that is more than just a game , but an interactive digital toy that allows children to explore bumps, bruises and broken bones in a fun and creative environment.
Toca Doctor consists of 18 puzzles and mini-games themed around a visit to the doctor's office. Your child can match shapes to apply a bandage, or solve a maze to get a sneeze out. Each puzzle stimulates the child's creative reasoning and problem solving skills in a way that is straightforward and non-frustrating to smaller children.
Because the app is not constrained to timers, points, or a win/lose mentality, children are able to play in a stress free environment that is full of positive reinforcement. Feedback from parents of special needs children has been the most exciting, with comments like this one being sent in or posted in iTunes:
"My 9 year old son has a neuromuscular disease as well as Autism, and spends much of his time in doctor's offices, on the road to doctor's offices, and in the hospital" said one reviewer in iTunes. "This app has proven to be great at keeping him occupied and he loves the mini games! The games are very easy for him to understand and aren't overly complicated, so they don't frustrate my son who has a hard time with most games."
The entire line of Toca Boca apps are thoroughly kid tested and parent approved. You will never find advertising or in-app-purchases in Toca Boca apps. The designs are brightly colored and made fun with cute sound effects and animations.
