Start with Toca Boca, the Swedish developer whose apps have been ever-present for my two sons (now aged eight and ten) as they’ve grown up. Its focus is on open-ended ‘digital toys’ rather than linear games or educational exercises.
Great choice. I’m amazed at the creative storytelling videos my 7-year-old is able to make with these apps. As a bonus, they sent us a care package when we tagged them on Instagram.
Our bucket list item is to visit their HQ in Sweden some day. Clara has looked up their offices on Google Maps, and she’s in love.
