we’re so excited to be teaming up with Toca Boca today to be giving away an iPad mini + the full collection of Toca Boca apps to one lucky reader!

over the last year, if you’ve caught my series of posts about our favorite apps for kids, you’ve probably noticed that Toca Boca apps always make the list. we seriously think they are some of the best! (the Toca Band theme song is still one of my favorite songs to sing throughout the day!) while like most parents, we try to keep screen time to a minimum with our kids, we’ve learned that in moderation, many apps on the iPad can be a wonderful tool for our kids to learn by, and an incredible save during travel for us especially.

one of the things josh and i love most about the Toca Boca apps, is how they encourage learning through play. they have a new app called Toca Blocks where little ones can construct their own unique worlds with blocks that are different colors, textures and materials. they have fun little creatures too! it’s all about exploring all the things you can do and creating and using your imagination to the fullest, and that is something i am always behind.

we also know that online interaction can’t replace good old fashioned human interaction. we always use the apps ourselves first and often play and learn alongside our kids when they are using a device. we use the device settings to restrict usage and love talking with them about what they did and made and then relating it back to our real world experiences, something Toca Boca believes in too and focuses on when designing their apps.

during our road trip up to vermont and back last week (6 hours one way in the car! if anyone is curious if that is an adventure with kiddos, i can assure you, IT IS!) we gave the new Toca Blocks app a go! (giveaway details at the end of this post!)
