I’m a bit of a snob when it comes to kids apps and often boast ‘you’ll only find educational apps on my phone/ipad’. I even have them in folders; Literacy, Numeracy, Big Books, etc. You won’t find Angry Birds, Ninja Fruit or any farting animals!
However, during the school holidays, I started to look for some new apps that had great reviews and kept coming across one in particular. After reading the reviews I succumbed and downloaded it (£1.49)…..
It’s from Toca Boca and it’s called……wait for it…..
Hair Salon 2! It made me squirm!
I have never seen my daughter so taken with an app, she normally gets bored after a while but was engaged with this one for ages and eventually had to take it off her but she keeps going back to it.
Please tell me there must be some educational content: Exploring the world around you, fine motor skills, creativity????
Am I stretching it?
Note: Make sure you download the second one as it’s a lot better than the first version.
You can find a list of other Apps we liked here.

I think I’ll need to check it out:)
My son now has EVERY toca app on his iPad. I mean every one. It started with tea party, Escalated to kitchen and we now have them all. I put the date for the latest release I My diary.
I’m going to check out a few more now. She’s 5. What do you recommend?
Yes, learning how to occupy yourself while others aren’t permanently entertaining you ;) Toca Boca rocks!
