Toca Hair Salon iPad App Review

Four Star Review

 

 

PRICE: $1.99

Toca Boca is one of the leading app developers for kid’s games for the iPhone and iPad. They are known for their fun, creative games for kids that stimulate the imagination. And the Toca Hair Salon is no exception.
Use your fingers to select one of the tools and cut their hair with scissors, comb it with the comb, or trim the hair or beard with the electric razor.  Use the magic potion, GRO, to grow their hair longer or back to keep the fun going.

For $1.99 your child – ages 3 and up – can run their own hair salon. The app features 6 characters – Harry, Berry, Marry, Rita, Larry and Fuzz – who are all in desperate need of a new hair style.

Don’t like the already crazy hair colors? The Toca Hair Salon has 12 hair spray colors to choose from to add a little more kookiness to the Toca gang. If you change your mind, you can give your client a shampoo and shower. Don’t forget to dry the hair with the towel and then the blow dryer.

Once you are finished and happy with the finished product, there are 8 bows, clips and rubber bands to style and complete the look.

Toca Hair Salon is full of little details that will make the app fun for your toddler or preschooler. The characters make faces and noises showing their approval or disapproval of the work of the stylist. And when you blow dry the hair, their faces will flap in the wind and any hair accessories will fly away.

If you’re thinking that the app is missing one important hair product – hair spray – have no fear. Anytime the hair is brushed or blow dried, it will stay in place. This helps create oodles of crazy, cool hair styles.

Parents will love that the app has no advertisements or in-app purchases. And kids will love that there are no rules. Toca Hair Salon allows the player to do anything they want, with no instructions to follow.

Pros:

  • There are endless possibilities to how many hair styles your child can create.
  • Stimulates child’s imagination.
  • Easy to use.
  • Colorful graphics.
  • Cute, life-like sound effects.

Cons:

  • It would be nice if there were a few more characters.
  • Some small children may be startled by some of the odd characters.

Be sure to check out all of the kids apps that Toca Boca has to offer, including Toca Kitchen, Toca Doctor, Toca House, Toca Tea Party, and Toca Train.
