App: Toca Hair Salon 2 Is Out, Is Delightful

Toca Hair Salon 2

We love the apps (they call ’em “digital toys”) from Toca Boca. They’re all so fun – for both our children and us – and don’t contain third party ads, in-app purchases or confusing menus that trip kids up.

Toca Hair Salon 2 came out yesterday and is a blast, even if you already own both previous iterations: Toca Hair Salon and Toca Hair Salon Christmas Gift.

App Review (and Code Giveaway!): Baby Pic for iPhone

Take a cruise around Instagram and if you didn’t know it already, you’ll soon learn that parents love to take pictures of their babies. You’ll also learn what baby ears look like, because babies have this crazy way of knowing when you’re about to snap a shot and turn their heads. Two Brazilian fathers found a great way for parents to get great photos of their babies’ faces, and you’d be surprised to learn their inspiration for their new iPhone app, Baby Pic.

We’ve also got one code for Baby Pic lyin’ around and will give it to one of you readers (see details after the review)!

Toca Hair Salon Christmas Gift

Toca Hair Salon Christmas Gift

This isn’t really a review, so much as a nudge to pick up a free gift. If you’ve got a little kid and you still buy into the evil regime of Christmas (kidding, I guess), then boy-howdy do I have an app for you to try. It’s the “Toca Hair Salon Christmas Gift” which is the Japanese game show way to say “Toca Xmas Salon.”

This FREE app, by the good folks at Toca Boca, is like crack cocaine for a toddler-aged kid. Your kid can choose to either cut Santa’s hair or prune a Christmas tree. There’s not much to this app, except that you get to cut, style and color Santa’s hair. Somehow, it also hypnotizes kids.

FBI’s App Could Definitely Accidentally Report Your Kid as Missing

By  •  News

The Federal Bureau of Investigation isn’t big on making apps. That’s why it’s with great pleasure and plenty of LOLs that they released “Child ID” for the iPhone.

The app stores current pics of your child, as well as vital information like name, age, height and weight. Then, if a child goes missing, parents can shoot off an e-mail to the FBI, letting them know that their child is missing, with all of the relevant info.

That’s right, on the platform that most parents give to their children to play with in the grocery store or in the booth at restaurants, the FBI is encouraging them to use to e-mail them.
