Toca Boca hits 30 million downloads (and acquires a new team)

Stockholm-/San Francisco-based app developer Toca Boca is growing and adding Toronto to the list of places it has an office.

According to TechCrunch, Toca Boca has acquired the team making up the developer zinc Roe and the apps that make up the Tickle Tap brand. The team is being renamed Sago Sago.

It seems like Toca Boca is using the acquisition to expand development capacity and adding a product-line for slightly older kids.

Acquisitions make good news articles, but the fact that Toca Boca's current apps have been downloaded 30 million times might, at the moment, have been the even more impressive part of the announcement.
