Toca Band. What a lot of fun this is. My daughter just loves playing around with this. I love to see her experimenting to try out different sounds and see what works together. It is great to teach children about rhythm and how different sounds can compliment each other to make up their own unique song. I think this is a wonderful app that is teaching children about music while they are having fun playing. I also love the fact that if they put one of the characters into the star position they can play with that character individually. This allows your child even more freedom of expression and creativity in their work. A truly wonderful app with no IAP's and external links are locked from children.

This is tons of noisy, open ended creative fun. There are a variety of instruments and the animation is awesome.
