Free-to-play app for 6 to 12 year olds

Toca Life World: Build a Story is a free simulation game that contains all the contents of Toca Life applications—cities, holidays, workplaces, and more—in a single interface for 6 to 12-year-olds. The game can be downloaded free of charge—newcomers can visit the first 11 in-game locations and link to more than 40 characters. Members, for example, can role-play as salon stylist and give a makeover to their in-game mate. You will buy them from the in-game shop using real money for more designs and events.

Countless enjoyable activities await you

In addition to the existing worlds, this game introduces new and exciting locations, such as a pizzeria, a hair salon, and a forest. Take a journey through these places, uncovering their hidden secrets. You can surprise your friends with treats in these locations to add more delight. For instance, treat your mother to a hair salon makeover, where she can enjoy a fresh haircut and a vibrant hair color transformation.

Further, Toca Life World: Build a Story lets you create personalized characters and style them based on your preferences. With thousands of possibilities, you can make each character truly unique by customizing your hairstyles, clothes, and accessories. In addition, you can own various pets in the game, including birds, cats, dogs, and rabbits. Each pet has its own unique personality, requiring you to provide appropriate care and attention.

Is Toca Life: World free?

The Toca Life World: Build a Story shop has more than 100 locations, over 500 characters, and more than 500 pets available for purchase in packs at various price points. Players can also get free in-game presents every week, even though they don't make an order. The app aims to discourage children from making in-app transactions by asking an adult to input their year of birth before the purchasing window can be shown, but older children who can read can get around this.

If you're interested in letting your kids try this game, make sure you change the in-app payment settings on your device to keep them from making purchases with your information. If you have already downloaded an app from the Toca Life series, you can access all of its contents free of charge in this game, so your children can continue playing it alongside other games. Free-to-play games also have a negative image as pay-to-win by prohibiting such content behind paywalls.

F2P games inspire children and adults to explore and discover what they love in various genres. In addition, they will be subsidized for several years after their initial release, so you can expect developers to bring new free content to players and exclusive content that they can buy through in-app microtransactions. As long as you know what your children are doing, children and adults will have fun playing with them.
