Where will Toca Boca take kids next?

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, February 6, 2013

Where will Toca Boca take kids next?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   If you have young children and an iPad, you know how easily they’re drawn to it.   Especially if you have apps created by Toca Boca.   In fact, the company calls the apps digital toys, and there are seventeen in all so far with more than 26 million downloads.  There’s Toca Train, Toca Tea Party, Toca Hair Salon and so on.   What’s next?  CEO Bjorn Jefferey…

“We’re expanding and we’re also trying to expand into new platforms.  We’ve been very much on iOS, but in December 2012 we released our first product for Kindle Fire.  So we’ve had a lot of requests from fans and families that have maybe one iOS device but also Android devices in the same house.  So we’re going to try to get some more products out for them during the year and we’re working on a few fun concepts too.”
