App description

This open ended app provides children with a virtual block building tool. Using six different “Toca builders”, each with their own skill, such as building, painting or demolishing, children can create any structure they desire.

Reviewers comments

In this App the player has the option of creating any structure – this open-ended nature is an opportunity for learning and play and means that children can create structures in a way that is similar to a set of blocks. As children master the role of each “Toca builder” they may need some assistance, however, once this is mastered most children are confident in construction. Some children observed playing found the open-ended nature challenging and were initially unsure of what to build – a quick online search of images using the phrase “toca builders gallery” presented a range of structures that could inspire challenging buildings, or prompt new ideas.

The ability to move through the virtual structures the player makes and explore it from multiple perspectives has potential for mathematics learning, although this is not the intended goal of the tool. The ability to paint blocks provides opportunity for creative engagement, with structures limited only by the players imagination.
