Toca Band is today’s Recommended Children’s App of the Week.

The app encourages kids to experiment with found music. Kids can choose from 16 different characters, each that has their own unique musical sound, and arrange 48 different sound loops on stage. The $2.99 iOS app’s musical tracks includes a range of music from rock guitar to opera.

Here is more from the app’s description:

Put your band members on stage to get the music started – then move them around and see what happens! Try out new band combinations, explore different sounds – and while you’re at it, why not give the lovable rapper, Stikk Figga something he always dreamed of: a solo performance!
