Amazing Apps: Toca Lab - Plants

The new app from Toca Boca, called Toca Lab: Plants, aims to plant seeds of interest in plant life and gardening with our kids, and it’s just the ticket for bringing the great outdoors inside on rainy days, or when kids are riding in the backseat, or don’t have easy access to outdoor play space.
There’s loads of open-ended fun and science learning in Toca Lab: Plants as kids experiment with plants in a botanical laboratory. They will uncover scientifically inspired pieces of lab equipment, five different stations and 35 all-new plant characters in an environment designed just for them, with no in-app ads. Each station offers tools to help kids grow and evolve their characters as they discover the plants’ unique personalities and create new species. 

In Toca Lab: Plants kids can:
  • Start with one plant and experiment their way to 35 different plant characters, each with its own unique personality
  • Continue to evolve existing plants through experimentation
  • Evolve plants with five lab tools: grow light, watering tank, nutrition station, cloning machine and crossbreeding apparatus
  • Discover plants from five groups: green algae, mosses, ferns, trees and flowering plants
  • Learn the names and Latin names of real-life plants
“Toca Lab: Plants is all about discovery” said Mårten Brüggemann, play designer at Toca Boca. “We’ve developed each plant to be different, and the suspense of a plant’s reaction to certain situations will ignite kids’ sense of exploration and playfulness. We hope Toca Lab: Plants will encourage kids to stay curious, because the curiosity of a child is the curiosity of a scientist.”
As with all Toca Boca apps, Toca Lab: Plants has no third-party advertising and features a kid-friendly interface free of rules, levels or high scores. Toca Lab: Plants will be released for $2.99 on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon June 15.
