We have some more app reviews coming up and decided the best way to handle the kid apps is to let our kids play them, we’ll review and give our review from a parenting perspective.

About Toca Boca
I see the Toca Boca brand quite a bit on my kids’ devices. I really like what they stay for, this is how they describe their company:
Toca Boca is an award winning game studio that makes digital toys for kids. We think playing and having fun is the best way to learn about the world. Therefore we make digital toys and games that help stimulate the imagination, and that you can play together with your kids. Best of all – we do it in a safe way without third-party advertising or in-app purchases.
Parent’s Review of Toca Hair Salon 3 App
So what does this parent thing of Toca Hair Salon 3 app? I think it’s adorable. My ONE and only worry about this app is that my curious boys will have so much fun playing this on the iPad that they too will want to cut their own hair (or each others!) or give each other a shave in real life. It’s been a while since we’ve had a kid give themselves a hair cut, I really don’t want to have to go thru that again.
If you are looking for an educational app – this isn’t it. Hair Salon 3 app isn’t an educational app in the traditional aspect.
Other than that – LOVED IT.

General Screen Time Talk
I have no problem with giving kids screens, but like all things we make sure there is balance in our kids’ lives. Interested in learning more about our rules? One thing we stick to is the No Screens in the Bedroom rule and Screen Free Sunday.
