Toca Boca has launched a new app today, Toca Lab: Plants ($2.99 at App Store | Google Play | Amazon ). The botanical world gets a huge dose of Toca Boca's whimsical sense of humor. My science-loving daughter has been having a total blast with it! She loves all of the quirky plant characters. To start, kids can pull down the window shade for all the list of plants. It starts with the Madonna Lily (Lilium candidum) and from there kids can make their way to explore 35 different plant characters. Kids can discover plants from five groups: green algae,...

Sago Mini brings their familiar animal characters (bunny, cat, dog and bird) to life in Sago Mini Town ($2.99 at Apple App Store | Google Play). Sago Mini town is a buildable town that kids can make their own. I love the endless open play that young kids can not only work on creatively building themselves but also having fun at it at the same time. There are four unique locations with backdrops for kids to choose from. But they can build just about anything no matter which location they choose. Want a beach in your city? Go for it!...
