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.
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.

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.
