Toca Lab: Elements Positive Reviews
Pretty Good AppTB! I...and so many other parents really appreciate these educational applications aimed at....well...teaching. I downloaded this for my daughter and she loved it, we also happened to be doing experiments with bases and acids a day prior. As with previous reviews on this app, there are so many things you can do with this; but please provide the names of the elements and their breakdown, and...new things can be created as you experiment with altering or combining elements with elements and with non-elements. Additionally, it would be great to observe the temperature readings at which certain elements freeze, melt, boil, etc. From a learning standpoint this app can be made to teach so many on very different levels. It would also be great to incorporate a storage area so you pass on an understanding of storage requirements for our young scientists. You can take this App from good to awesome!
You could also have various scientists provide short lessons on working with each element...just a thought. Thanks!.Version: 1.1.1
Love it. But needs new additionsI like the game and what you people at Toca Boca were very creative with making the Periodic Table. But there are a few things you need to add. Like a Restart. It would be great having a restart but you could pick the element you start with Instead of just Phosphorus. (P) Another thing you could add Is mini games. Like make Element here in a short amount of time. Another thing you could add is that the elements you put into the beakers with the colored water would make six smaller elements. Putting the small elements together would give you information about the element (Like putting small Americium(Am) together, Would show you it’s properties. If the element has a combination with it, There could be an option where you do something that won’t make an element, It would give it information about the element for free.) And I’ll recommend color coding every group from Alkali metals(Li,Na,K,Rb,Cs,Fr) being red, Alkali Earth Metals(Be,Mg,Ca,Sr,Ba,Ra)Being Orange, Transition Metals(Sc-Cn)being Yellow, Lanthanides(La-Lu) Being Yellow Orange,Actinides(Ac-Lr) Being Yellow Green. Metalloids(B,Si,Ge,As,Sb,Te,Po) being Blue, Halogens(F,Cl,Br,I,At, Ts)Being Indigo, And Noble Gasses(He,Ne,Ar,Kr,Xe,Rn,Og) Being Purple, And Nonmetals(C-Bi) Being Blue Green..Version: 1.1.1
New Update?To start off, I would like to thank the developers of this game for making this game very intriguing, it was pretty much worth the $2.99 for me. However, knowing that science continues discovering new elements to this day, could it be possible for you to include those new elements and continue along with it as you go? Also, since it didn’t take too long for me to complete this game, I would like to have features that would make the game more interesting, such as the option to customize the little characters you have discovered, achievements that you can get as you play along the game, little minigames, game buffs you can get if you have the option to restart the game, etc., all while still keeping the theme of making it as simplistic as possible for the kids. I know this seems like an ambitious task, but I hope you are able to accomplish this in the future for your fans. :).Version: 1.1.1
Amazing and educational! Could use a few things...This app is a great way to introduce kids to the periodic table, but I think it should include a few more details to increase the amount of Facts kids are introduced to. I think that you should have labels on the table to show period and groups, Alkalis, Alkaline Earth Metals, Lanthanides, Actinides, Transition Metals, Metalloids, Non-Metals, and Noble Gasses. You should also include things in each element box like the name (not just the symbols), atomic mass, and electron configuration. Their also should be a way to make bonds and combine the elements together. Ex. Combine a Sodium and a Chlorine together and the sodium will lend its valence electron to the chlorine atom completing both outer shells. I think that the addition of all these things would make this already great app even better..Version: 1.1.1
Great, but one major issue.Okay, let’s get one thing straight. I love toca lab: elements, as I have played this game before, many years ago. I have played it again this year, and it’s still amazing. I love all of the elements’ sounds that they make. It was REALLY magical for me playing it the first time. Although, I can’t quite experience the game that way anymore, because the app. Keeps. Crashing. And every time it crashes, I lose all of my progress. So I have to start over and over and over again. It’s really annoying. And sometimes, I can’t even play it in general because the app crashes as soon as I press on it. That REALLY needs to be fixed. And also, a quick suggestion: under the elements’ symbols, there should be the element’s name. Just to make it less confusing. Anyways, that’s why I’m rating this 3 stars. I would’ve given it 5 if it weren’t for all of the crashes..Version: 2.1
Amazing Game, But Many MistakesTennessine is not a halogen. It is a Superheavy metal (I think). Also, all the lanthanides or rare earth metals are magnetic. The only magnetic lanthanide you made was Gadolinium. Also, Radium Promethium, and Astatine are luminous elements. So, their radioactive aura should be very bold green. Fluorine and Chlorine don’t have the halogen bubbles on them. Francium, Aluminum, Copper, and Zinc are not noble metals. Palladium is a noble metal. The noble metals with the sparks on them should have a hexagon with a picture of a star just like the radioactive elements have 3 circles on the hexagon (just an example). The poisonous elements like Arsenic and the heavy metals except for Bismuth, a nontoxic heavy metal should have a hexagon with poison symbols on them and green poison symbols surrounding the element. Please fix them..Version: 2.2.1
Thanks Toca Boca!This app is lovely and entertaining to kids! I originally had this downloaded on my device because it was very calming, kind of like an adult coloring book. Anyway, I once went over to my friend's house and her little brother saw my iPad and asked if he could play on it. I said yes and I chose this app. Then, once I showed him how to play, well, that four year old was hooked! I couldn't get him off of it! He thought it was so fun! My friend and I got to talk and hangout while he entertained himself. He was very quiet (when he wasn't laughing about the characters) and he didn't want to do anything else the entire day! Thank you guys so much for keeping my friend and I sane and for calming down one rowdy kiddo!.Version: 1.1.0
Great, but I have a few SuggestionsFirst of all, this is a great game! Funny characters and noises.. It has multiple options for the game, like The Fan or The Freezer, most of the time, it transforms your character to a new one. And it’s free! It makes u laugh, and giggle as u watch what happens to each character! Then comes in my suggestions:
1. It would be AMAZING if they had more characters!(I went through the game in a day:()
2.Can you make the characters more cute? I seen cat ones but not dogs, not that I don’t like cats, but I’m more of a dog lover....
3. Can you make more options for a potion? I love all the things that happen with regular potions but, more would make it more fun!
4. Can you make the characters stick to the walls? I think it would be fun!
5. There should be a custom made element guy, what I mean is I think we should make some hybrids, mixing a element with another element. I’ve seen the plant game do it, but why does it have to be money? U developers can do the same thing for FREE!! That’s all my suggestion I rate this game 9/10, great game, I recommend it!!.Version: 1.1.1
Good but needs moreOk I love this game, when ever my friend comes over we would play it, but today we got all of them and hoping we get another pack with new elements but no me and my friend were so disappointed 😞 we clicked the update and it did nothing. To people. This is a good game for a serten amount of time it is definitely not worth that money but still good so if you want a game that is going to end get this one. To the creator listen up I love this game a lot but please just please give another pack of elements I am sad that my friend got are hopes up for nothing so please do what I ask. Well have a good night or day bye!!.Version: 2.0
Buzzing! OH. MY. WORD.First off thank you for your fantastic games. My kids love them and don’t feel like they are completely wasting their time like some of the other ad-based garbage games. The only complaint I have is in Toca Lab I make them mute the game. There is some background noise that is completely obnoxious. Maybe it’s supposed to be the fluorescent lights of the lab or something? It hurts my brain if I’m within earshot. Can you please either remove it or have an option in-game to cut the power to whatever makes this awful ear torturing buzz? 4 stars now. 5 when removed! Keep up the good work otherwise..Version: 1.1.1
So happy it's free!Hey Toca boca, I know you might not read this but if you do, then hey! I love all your games and when I'm bored or sad I play your games because they cheer me up. I'm about to turn 9 in 9 days and my early birthday wish was to make one of your games free, it looks like my dream/wish came true. I can't believe how much effort you put in just one kids game, and I appreciate that! I also can't wait for Toca lab: plants! This was written really quick which surprised me. I hope your company lasts for 100 years and I hope you never stop making amazing games for us kids..Version: 1.1.0
READ BEFORE DOWNLOADINGYou must know that this game is a fun game for little ones to start their exploration of elements and science. This game is accurate with elements but not how they are made. This is not supposed to be material for exceptionally accurate facts and learning. If you download this and still are surprised, don’t be, cause the description should have warned you. I still think this is fun even though I’m not very young. Please download it for yourself if you want. I like it and I’m sure your kids would too. Thanks, Toca for this game. I’m just tired of the terrible AND good results that are dividing people on this game. Thanks, bye! :).Version: 1.1.1
Great but needs a little moreI love absolutely love this game, but it would be so much better if you Toca Boca, added like a mutation like the ability to make metal alloys ,such as titanium, and other things like that such in “,Toca Lab: Plants,”. If you Toca Boca, would make this a thing in the game, I would give a five star rating, and tell anyone I know who would possibly like this game about it and suggest it to them, because I do truly love the game and would play it again, bu————t I HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO DO I completed the game within 1 to 2 hours and never played it again because I HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO DO..Version: 1.1.1
Played it for foreverSo, first of all, I’ve always loved this game. My dad got it for me on my iPad when I was five, and I’ve been playing it ever since, but obviously less now lol. It could use some new additions and updates though, as this app allows young kids to experiment with different substances and chemicals, like little scientists, personally I find it pretty cute. But. And yes, there is a but. If there were names listed above or below the species, kids might learn a lot more! Five stars for this, and all the other Toca apps!.Version: 1.1.1
VERY cuteMy three year old LOVES this game, and I think it’s very fun. It can get repetitive but I don’t think younger kids kind that so much. They should add more features if they intend this to be for older kids or people who might not be into doing the same thing over and over. The ONE thing I’d change is to have a little more information on the elements. At the very least, give us the full name and how to say it. I remember some of them from high school but not everything and my daughter always asks me what their names are, so I have to look them up a lot..Version: 1.1.1
MAKE A SECOND GAMEPlease please please please please make a second game I know that the first game already had all the elements in it but you can just make up fake elements in the next game or not even make it about elements just call it Toca blobs or something this game is amazing and I really really want you to make a second game I finish making every single element in one day and I’m bored deleting the app and re-downloading it just to make the same elements please please please make a second game!!!!.Version: 2.0
It’s very fun and I love itOkay Amy you look like a big person but I’m actually eight years old first I like the part where you have to have that with acids and then boom you get to change the characters when you do when you find the questionmarks do you have to guess which one is? It So stupid you have to figure it out it’s just very stupid. I love you but why does it just have a table just useful words of the developers going to add a comment of mine and just can you tell me what the P one is.Version: 1.1.2
Cool game, but...Ah, the dreaded but. So I'm a teen who has been slightly taught chemistry (my teacher isn't that good). I do enjoy the silly personalities of the different elements and the giant trial and error puzzle this game is. However, this is not chemically correct. Elements are the simplest form of everything and cannot be transformed into a different one by freezing or whatever. It's more magic than science. That aside, this is very creative and I hope it sparks the imagination of some kids out there!.Version: 1.1.1
Good but needs an updateOk this is one of the best apps I have seen! It’s so fun and cool! But there is one thing that is making me sad. There has never been a new update! I have ideas though! Maybe make a game where you could make a new element mini game and call it Make an Element! So you can smash elements together and make your own element! That would be cool! Or maybe be able to restart the game and start as a random element! I love this game so much and I wish Toca Boca to always keep it up!.Version: 1.1.2
It depends on what kind of person You areIf you are a person who tries to enjoy it and stopped every five minutes please games gonna take about three days and that’s the problem it’s not very long game it did take me and my friend a couple of minutes to find it because some of the elements were just hard to find but if you’re a speed runner who tries to get a leave the game under in a day it will take about an hour which would be a problem that’s the only reason why I give it three and not four stars.Version: 1.1.1
The ultimate Toca loverToca, great job with making the awesome games! I love the way you make the games. You are like no other brand. I'm going to be playing this until I'm 89! But I really want/think you should make a game called " Toca Imagination ". I know that lots of people have been asking for this, but COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who doesn't want this? Love your games, but really want/think you should be listening right now!!! Thank you if you're looking at this!!!!!!!!!.Version: 1.1.0
Really Fun and Cute, But...This game is really fun and cute, good for kids, and funny, I love the sounds they make, which is why I rated it five stars, that and I want to give the company some support. But I had finished the entire game in like 5 hours on my way to vacation, I don't know what else to do. The rest is really good though, just don't expect a game that will keep you occupied for over a week if you've got that much time on your hands..Version: 1.1.1
Science easy!!!So I beat the game in 3 hours and there was confetti 🎉!!! & and the game was so cool 😎 but where are the superactinides and post elements and like everyone says where are the NAMES!!! No one wants elements by their symbol like I or bk or xe or la or lu not even fr okay okay but on the bright side it is a fun game!!!😉🤩🧐😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😁😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀😀 okay enough emojis juneboy6 the end jk don’t ya like copper and francium and indium and iodine and I made a song called its radioactive ☢️ now the end.Version: 1.1.1
Intro to experimentation and unknownsThis is a great app in which kids experiment to find new creatures. Sometimes they know what to do and other times they must experiment to fill in missing pieces of info.
I get that they were mimicking the table of elements but I think progression really could have elevated this game. If the creatures slowly became more complex (ears, tails, arms, legs, etc) as you went across the chart it would add more incentive..Version: 2.0
Fun but …Subpar.
Ok, first off... the game IS fun, it IS cute, and it ISN'T fully accurate.
How it works
You start out with the element Phosphorus ( or P for those wandering). You have six different
"tools" you can use to "change" the element. You continue this and as you do you gan more elements- but that's the thing....
You can't change an element from one to another.
I mean- why do you think medieval Alchemists failed at transforming Lead (Pb) to Gold (Au)!
Don't get me wrong I love this game and played it when I was little, but I don't suggest it for your child.
Again, I love the game, and it's really fun! But I do have a small suggestion. Maybe not having one element and building off of that; but having the tools to "discover" the elements! This would definitely make everything a little more accurate!
Thanks for reading!.Version: 2.1
Great just 1 teeny tiny thingDear toca boca, I love your games and there super fun to play!.........for a short time. My only complaint is that your games are fun for a little while but then they get kinda boring because you just end up doing the same thing over and over again! Please please please please PLEASEEEEEEEE make a game with goals or something so you can play it for a long time and still experience new things! That’s all besides from that ur good fam👌🏻.Version: 1.1.0
Good Game Just Needs An UpdateI bought this app a few years ago then I re-installed it. This game is really fun, but it’s too short. To start off I discovered all the elements in 1 day. There’s also this weird bug in the game, whenever I use the spinny thing it crashes the game. Then when I try it again it works? But that’s whatever cause yeah...anyways like I was saying. An update would be amazing :).Version: 1.1.2
You need to add more thingsI really like the game and think that you can add little things like if you go to the very first element you were you might get to do it all over again just with some changes like change the thing you use to make the element or make there be multiple ways to get the element thank you for reading this and if the creator is reading this I hope you take into these suggestions.Version: 1.1.1
Amazing, But...This game is awesome for teaching kids like me the periodic table but if you are going to teach someone the elements you have to include the names of them! And you also have to have the names of the things that unlocks other elements, like the Centrifuge and Liquid nitrogen spray; But anyways, I like how the different elements have a little character to represent them. I think your other Toca lab game (Toca Lab Plants) was better. This game lacks information..Version: 1.1.2
I LOVE this appThis app was amazing! I loved it and my family liked it too!
I finished it in about a month, and I was so happy until I realized that I couldn’t play anymore. So I would really appreciate if you make another game like this! I would be happy is you make some sort of game with different elements (scientists are still finding out more) or different tools!.Version: 1.1.1
3/5 starsI gave this rate 3/5 stars because Toca Boca just made Toca lab: plants but of course I waited and ili saw that it wasn't free I GOT so MAD It even made me get into trouble for not BEHAVING because I pleased my parents and they say no so I asked again and I got in trouble, I had to go to bed early!
Now here's the good part of this version: You made it free for a little while and I was able to play it and still have the app because I truly loved it. So those are my thoughts about the Toca lab series and about Toca lab: elements.Version: 1.1.0
Ok pretty goodSo me and my brother got this game and he finished in one day we were sort of hoping that you could win like a prize at the end in the game when you finish them all but no you pretty much just do it and then never play it again so 4 dollars for this was okay but maybe needs more at the end! Over all I loved all the sounds that they made and it is pretty fun so I gave to 4 stars!.Version: 1.1.1
Nice! But one thingI just gotta say this app is amazing it’s fun and cool that you get to play around with the little blob things.I only have one flaw tho.
So maybe add more machines I know there is like 6 but it gets kinda boring after you use all of them to try to make a new thingy. So I would appreciate if you added just like 3 or 2 more that would make me happy and probably others too. 🙂.Version: 1.1.2
Love it! Important, Plz Fix These Problems!I'm loving this game so much, but it gets boring once you have it for like three months. Also it just randomly restarted the whole game! I worked super hard on it and got like 30-50+ elements, then I log into it today and I go to change my element and I only had one! Other wise, I LOVE YOUR GAMES!! They are fun, creative, educating, and very well made and animated! Keep it up!.Version: 1.1.0
Goodbye need a few improvements from the new updateEvery time I go on my iPad it’s like starting me over the first time I went on it it didn’t start me over again andI got so mad that I decide to delete the app and then open it and it still didn’t work so I guess you can improve it on the next update. - Lay’La.Version: 2.1
So Cute you need to make a part 2 !This game is so cute ! I love it ! You should really make a part 2 ! Some ideas are more characters, more objects to make them in , and allow more than one character to be on screen at once and let them interact with each other . I really hope you read this !.Version: 1.1.0
Very cute and funThis app is very cute and addicting I’m glad I bought this.
It’s useful because my little brother likes to play this and when ever he makes a new element he asks me what it is called which makes it a great way for me to practice the periodic table for school.
I would definitely recommend this to other people.Version: 1.1.1
Awesome, but please fix bug/virusI really love this game! But I ran into a bug while playing. You know that area where it tells you about what element you’re choosing? Well, I saw that the elements you chose had no face! I’m not sure if it’s a bug or virus, but please fix it.
Thanks, Jaxton Parker, present second grader, future third grader.😀👏🙏🏼.Version: 1.1.1
Plushies!!! + a gameI want you to produce and make Toca lab elements plush with tags that represent the atomic number and the symbol and profile.I want you to make another app called Toca explorer with fun shows ,games,and mini games such as Toca jump,Elements,Toca Tea Party™️etc. And also fix the bug/virus on radium,darmstadtium,etc. Also add a kid’s scratch. Also make an elementizer..Version: 1.1.1
IF YOU DONT LIKE THIS GAME YOU ARE CRAZY!!!!This is a good game it ussaly takes a few days make a game fun for me but toca lab elements only got in a matter of probably 6 minutes! Well I mean you have to pay for I’m a kid and my aunt gave me a phone and her phone is connected to my phone so i can download this for freee!!!!.Version: 1.1.1
This is a great app but could use a few things...Don’t get me wrong this is another Toca Boca masterpiece, I even use it to study my periodic table! There’s only one major problem with this app. Once you get all the elements it’s gets pretty boring I mean the only thing you can do is change them to different elements. Maybe you could add like compounds or a different section like that?😋.Version: 1.1.1
Love the game but it glitchesWe got through a lot of the game but when we got to Ne it won’t let us make the next element. As soon as we put it in the centrifuge it goes to the next element and closes the whole app. Is there any way this could be fixed????.Version: 2.0
Fun but could be more accurateI thought the game was really cute for my 4 year old who loves all the Toca games, but I was a little disappointed when the elements made sounds instead of saying the actually element name. I feel like that was a real miss with this game because I almost don’t want me son to play it because he’s repeating the sounds and that’s not what the elements are called..Version: 1.1.1
The best chemistry game everThis game is awesome and I unlocked all the elements. This game made me so interested in chemistry I literally want to do chemistry as a job when I grow up. Without this game I wouldn’t have a dream job. So big thanks to this game. Also people are making up these fake elements like “Ununennium” and so on..Version: 1.1.1
Add a restart buttonI like the game, but can you make it so you can change the element you start with and be able to restart the periodic table? If added I would greatly love it more..Version: 2.1
No!I disagree with some silly name. number 66 does NOT sound like banana bus! It sound like dy! And number 88 looked like a soccer ball! The ones with wings know how to play soccer! So cool! Once I mixed all the small nps THE WHOLE APP SHOOK! Very cool! More updates like the human body! And when I put back a thing in the box with co it had a bug! Fix it!.Version: 1.1.1
I found a bug!I love the game and I found a small bug. When a blob blows up and the middle right shelve when the murged it went though the shelve! It’s middle was stuck! Pls fix it pls! It pretty good! So five stars! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.Version: 2.1
No sound?I have tried everything I can think of to turn the sound on: turned on music for this app in my iphone settings, deleted and reinstalled the app, emailed support 2 weeks ago but never received a response.
The app is really fascinating but I feel like we’re missing so much with zero sound..Version: 1.1.1
Nice game!This taught me to remember the periodic table better, (I am a kid)
And would totally recommend for adults to use with their kids. I was bored when it ended, and restarted a couple times, (if you want to know how to do that, just delete and reinstall) Cool game!.Version: 1.1.1
Fun butThe game is fun but it’s to short.Version: 2.2.1
RequestFor it to be ~slightly more educational~, can we actually be able to see the full name of the elements? It just shows the shortened name..Version: 2.0
Finished everything in one dayWay too short :/.Version: 2.2.1
More petsHi I'm all done with the kind of pets and I will like you to put more pets please please.Version: 2.2.1
GOOD BUT...I would expect more from this game than it is and I would love to see more games like this but with more stuff.Version: 2.1
Good,not worth itIt’s a really fun game but you can complete it in like an hour, so not worth it but a really fun game.Version: 1.1.2
❤️Ok I’m just going to say I’m 16 and I’ve had this game for about 3 years and keep replying it. it has really helped with memorizing the periodic table, and all together a absolutely great game.Version: 2.1
WhyI don’t get why you made it so you get stuck I don’t get it like what does ??? Mean.Version: 2.0
Hi Toca,Can you please make it in Microsoft store Version please? Thank you. :).Version: 2.0

I Found New Elements.
What I Want:
- Custom Elements
- The Ability To Edit Default Elements
- 2 New Tools.Version: 1.1.1
Best😀😀😀😀😀This game is fus until you completed it so you have to delete the game and then you get the game again. Anyways, Good game!.Version: 1.1.1
Good gameI’m five II like this game.Version: 1.1.1
Good Game! 👍I'm Giving This Game A Five-Star ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Because I Can Create My Characters By Using The Tools, You Can get Creative With Toca Lab (You Should Download It) 😍☺️😃👍❤️.Version: 1.1.1
It looks like a good gameI think they should make more of this game.Version: 1.1.1
Love it a lot!I got this game and when I finished it, I started getting into the periodic table. This made me memorise the elements and their numbers a lot quicker! I’m really glad this game is a thing..Version: 1.1.1
GREATWell it gets on your nerves sometimes but it's GREAT!! 🙂.Version: 1.1.1
Ya it isDddf.Version: 1.1.1
Knowing the elementsIt's kind of annoying to go on google and look the elements instead of learning the names of the elements on the app.Version: 1.1.0
Make more elementsPlease make more elements.Version: 1.1.1
Ambitious premise. Flat realization.In this toy, you perform lab-like operations (involving test tubes, centrifuges, and what appears to be a kind of electrolysis machine) on "elements" in order to transform them into other "elements." Although the "elements" are shown on a table that superficially reproduces the periodic table of the elements ("PTE"), none of the toy "elements" bear any resemblance to real substances in nature. You begin with one "element"on the table, with all the other boxes blank, and then you begin messing around with it, performing the laboratory "operations" on it in order to "discover" the other "elements." Speaking generally, it's rather difficult simply to navigate the app--I'm surprised this didn't surface in pre-release testing.
The equipment and "operations" make this feel a bit like high school chemistry, while the aspect of "discovery of change" (which is supposed to be main point, I think) gives this toy its principal jolt of excitement. The basic notion that scientists "discover" things by intervening, by _changing_ things, is an ambitious premise for a toy for children. Let me be clear that I _love_ this premise. But the toy itself falls rather flat.
The use of the PTE (the development of which was an astonishing feat of human ingenuity--look it up on Wikipedia) is here reduced to a bare visual conceit. It _looks_ like the PTE, but it isn't. The "elements" in the toy have no real relationships to one another or to the "operations" that transform them. Each "element" has a letter or two and a number associated with it--just like the PTE--but these do not appear to mean anything. The overall interactivity of the world in the toy is simply low.
Die hard Toca Boca fans, don't pay more than $1. Everyone else, grab it if it goes free. But everyone keep your expectations in check. Definitely not TB's best..Version: 1.0.2
Fun but lackingMy kids love the app but now think the elements names are the sounds they make. It would be much more educational if their real names were incorporated. As is, it's confusing my kids..Version: 1.1.0
SucksIt is fun but when you beat it what do you do.Version: 1.1.0

Awesome with one problem....It's awesome in every way but there is one thing, I got an update for it and it made me restart... please fix thanks -Toca boca fan.Version: 1.0.4
I paid but now I'm doneThis game was so addicting and fun but then I finished and unlocked everything so I had nothing to do, so I deleted it. Please add something, maybe make custom elements station to make our own to play with!?.Version: 1.0.4
Really good (for asapscience Addicts)I like it.Version: 1.0.4
Our kids love it!Our boys, 5 & 7.5 loved other Toca Boca apps when they were younger (Robot Lab and Toca Kitchen) and I wasn't sure if my eldest would enjoy it, but they both love 'conducting' experiments in the lab and creating new, cute elements. I love that there is an interesting app that is not filled with guns, shooting and killing but colorful and fun. Great job Toca Boca!.Version: 1.0.3
Was funIt was really fun but to easy for me . I finish it in like 3 days.Version: 1.0.2
18 years old and found it funNeeds more fun things to do with elements..Version: 1.0.2
It's awesomeI'm past the age but I still love and it takes my mind off things.Version: 1.0.2
Nice learning gameThis game is good to help little kids learn but I do not think it is worth 2.99.Version: 1.0.2
Not the best gameThe hole game is outstanding even I love it! But once you finish making the periodic table THERE IS NOTHING TO DO! So I guess it was fun for my kids for 3 days or so but then they stopped because they finished the game! PLEASE ADD MORE THINGS TO DO NOT JUST CONFETTI.Version: 1.0.2
A bit disappointingMy kids had fun heating up elements etc, but it would have been way more fun to learn the names of the elements and some attribute for each one - like "c" is carbon and makes up all things that are living such as trees etc. Just changing elements and learning their atomic number is a little boring. I also thing it would have been useful if both my kids could have played this "game" separately, each learning about the elements one at a time - but there is no way to start a separate game once you have started. I'm not convinced it was worth $2.99 for my kids to blow up little balls…..Version: 1.0.2
