Toca Life: Town, an app created by Toca Boca AB, features familiar Toca Boca characters in a fully interactive town. There are seven buildings, twelve characters, and hundreds of objects to move and manipulate. Children can host a birthday party, solve a mystery at the police department, go grocery shopping, cook a family meal, or create their own stories and scenarios. Everything they do in a particular building is saved immediately upon exiting that building so that children can return at anytime. And, anything that children do to a character (e.g., place an item in their hands, put on a hat, etc.) is also saved and carried into the next area. However, if children wish to reset everything, that is an option as well.

Toca Life: Town has excellent long-term play value; it's completely open ended, encouraging imaginative play and storytelling to all who visit.
