There’s a strange house on a strange street in a strange part of town. Most people are scared of it, but I want to sneak inside.
There are so many rumors, I don’t know what to believe
Some kids say the top floor glows at night and that crazy aliens live up there. Some say that strange experiments are going on in the living room. One kid I know absolutely swears they heard weird music coming from the basement. Can a house sing? I’ve also talked to kids who say the entire kitchen is covered in slime. Even my best friend, who never believes anything, told me the house is alive!
I had to see for myself
I did, I swear. I peeked inside last week. First, I made sure no one was around. Then I got on my tiptoes and spied in the kitchen window. I saw just the edge of the fridge. I think I saw some kind of gooshy red stuff oozing out of it, but I’m not really sure. Then I heard creepy rumbling sounds coming from the basement. It totally freaked me out and yup, I admit it, I sprinted all the way home.
But I’m just so curious, I can’t help myself. I think I’ll be going back. I want to go inside. I could really use a partner, though. Seriously, will you come with me?

Not much to do
This app is gorgeous, and it’s so different from what Toca Boca usually comes out with that I was super curious to see that it’s about. The art and minigames are ADORABLE (albeit maybe a little scary for the target age group- the monster in the basement freaked my younger sister out quite a bit) and the way you explore/move about is super unique and cool. My favorite game is the aliens in the attic (though I like to pretend they’re angels). Super neat, wish there were more ways to interact with them.
The reason I gave this three stars is that it’s a little boring. Usually in Toca games there’s a lot to explore and discover, so when I heard this had come out I was super excited to take it apart and check out the app. Instead, there are like four rooms, and it took me less than 20 minutes to find everything there was to the game. I don’t feel like that was $4 worth of entertainment. I loved the animation and I’d love to see Toca come out with more apps like this- just maybe, next time, gimme a little more.
Twice in a row Toca makes a pointless app. Many people have made great suggestions on cool apps and you go with this? There is not enough activities to keep you entertained and the activities it does have are pointless. The setup is a little spooky for young kids especially because it’s JUNE NOT OCTOBER. I think a Toca Boca life would of been cool. Overall the rooms are very small and disappointing. Just wow. 😒
I do have new app suggestions. A Toca camping would be awesome. There could be cars and campers. Another fun one would be an amusement park. It could have food and rides. There could be a zoo with animals. There could also be a Toca life travel with places like London England with the Queen, Paris France, and Egypt. Something else would be to let there be a connection through the worlds that is a downloadable app with the option to drive, take the bus, or even a plane.
These are some suggestions for new apps and a not so happy note on the app itself
Let your kid figure it out
Ok, so I thought this game looked amazing, bought it for my son and watched him play it and at first was like, now what? But, he looooves it and it is the only game he plays. He has discovered so many neat things! Those that say it is boring or they figured it all out in 15 mins does not have the perseverance and dedication of my four year old. There are so many little hidden tricks. I think that as you figure stuff out, more stuff gets layered on. Im also pretty sure that as you discover more stuff the plain paintings on the wall get colored? Just let your kid figure it out. Also, it isn't scary. Spooky and fun like Halloween— but certainly not scary.
