App Review: Boci Series

Hi everyone, we are back! Already one month without a new post… The Havefunwithkids crew have been quite busy with holidays and visits from Oma, Opa and Tia Sita….

Anyway, in this post I’m going to talk about Boci series, new free apps for children that I just installed a few weeks ago. As I mentioned here, we usually keep around ten apps in my tablet. We install new apps every few weeks and delete apps that Carla and Renan don’t want anymore.

Boci series are educational apps for kids aged up to 6, made by Rolling Glory, an Indonesian based creative digital media studio.

So far, according to the official website, there are nine Boci apps; a storybook and eight games. They all feature Boci, a cheeky little chameleon, and his friends.

Carla and Renan’s favourite is the storybook, Boci Adventures 1. Kids can read the story by themselves or choose the narration mode.

What they like about this storybook is that there are tasks to do in every page, for example in this page they can help Boci clean up the floor.

Other Boci apps that Carla and Renan have tried are….

Boci Play: Counting

This app is too easy for Carla, but it’s a hit with Renan.

This one is simple but fun…. Carla was able to find the notes and play “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” all by herself and she was so proud! Some time ago I asked her if she wanted to learn to play a musical instrument, and she said no (I didn’t want to push her), but after using this app, she found that making music was fun, and she actually asked me the other day if she could take piano lessons. We’ll see….

Peekaboci

This hide and seek game app is more suitable for younger kids, maybe from 1 to 3 yo.

Boci Play: Connect the Dots and Boci Play: Magic Colors

I really want to try Boci Trace Alphabet, Boci Play: Alphabet and Boci Theme Park that seem to be suitable for Carla and Renan. Unfortunately, for some reasons, I haven’t been able to install them on my tablet.

I especially like Boci apps since there are English and Indonesian versions, so Carla and Renan can learn Indonesian a bit. At the moment, they only use English, but I’ve been slowly trying to introduce Indonesian to them.
