In 2016, an estimated 103 million people in the United States alone travelled during the year-end holiday season. Many of these trips included long hours in cars and buses or on trains and plans. Many children get fidgety during these long trips and that is why the Toca Boca series of app games is such an essential brand for travellers. Toca Boca App Games are made to keep little ones entertained for hours, enabling parents to get to their destinations with as little stress as possible.

Toca Boca is the leading developer of children’s apps and they especially recommend the following four games to travellers.

Note: I have personally play tested each one of these games and I can honestly state that they are all fun, unique, and full of whimsical, surprising, and delightful features, characters, settings, and imagery. As much as an escape for adults as children, every one of the games in the Toca Boca line is worthy of exploration.
