ACCM review

This review of Toca Tea Party contains the following information:

App description

This is an open ended app designed to encourage children to have a virtual tea party. As the App allows multiple players it is designed for up to three players to have a virtual tea party.

Reviewers comments

In this game, the player sets up a “tea party”, selecting a tablecloth, plates, drinks and food. The players then “eat” and “drink” the food by touching on items, which results in virtual bites of food being taken or sips of drinks. Players can knock over drinks and then clean up using the tissues provided.

Multiple players mean that a child could have their “tea party” with other children, or with toys. Playing with other children could encourage language and table conversations.

Gambling

No gambling content was found during the review.

Game playing behaviour which may be of concern to some parents

The game contains foods such as cakes and flans that may not be considered healthy. The drinks presented (although not named) do not appear to have any healthy options (such as milk or water) and include drinks that could be seen as tea and coffee. While parents may be be concerned about the lack of healthy options, this could also be a prompt for a discussion of healthy eating habits.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
