Great, interesting article at GigaOm today about Toca Boca, makers of great games for iOS
Mention the name Toca Boca to any parent with an iPad or iPhone, and you’re likely to hear them start raving with delight. Since launching last year, the Swedish games studio has become a big hit with families thanks to its sequence of simple, open games — including best-selling titles like Toca Hair Salon and Toca Kitchen.
The company’s apps have been downloaded millions of times, grabbing attention by combining different elements of play into small, self-contained games that are simple, colorful and fun to mess around with.
Now the Stockholm company, a subsidiary of Swedish media group Bonnier, is targeting bigger things — and planning to open an office in San Francisco next month.
My three-year-old son Finny absolutely loves his Toca Boca games. All of them.
