In the spirit of the season, I will be featuring holiday-themed apps this month. The first one I selected puts kids right into Santa’s workshop to help finish up all the toys before his big night.
Works on: iPhone and iPad
For: Kids who want to be Santa’s little helpers
The days are counting down until Christmas and Santa is furiously trying to finish up all the toys he needs to send. He needs all the help he can get! The Wombi Christmas Toys app gives your little elves the chance to help out and complete tasks like decorating a tree to fixing a gingerbread man, even coiffing the unruly hair of a little soldier toy.
Kids pull a lever to see which toy next needs fixing on the conveyor belt. There are five mini games in all and after kids complete their tasks, they are going to wish there were more. If that’s the case, you can also download the original Wombi Toys app ($2.99) and give them 20 more toys to tinker with (which Wombi alerts you to with the banner ad at the bottom of the screen.)
The graphics are cute and the app is easy for young kids to maneuver. And as it should be with all kids’ apps, there are no in-app purchases, which makes this app a nice little Christmas treat for you and your kids.
If you have an app that you’d like considered for Screen Play, please contact LetsPlugIn@gmail.com.
