We all want to make Christmas special for our kids, don’t we? What do most toddlers want for the holiday season? To talk to Santa, of course; and tell him that they’ve behaved throughout the year so they can get the best gifts. You’ll be glad to know that there’s an app for that, or more. Make your pick and let toddlers talk to Santa online. Here are some of our best picks.
Portable North Pole
Create magical experiences for your kids with Portable North Pole. This cool app lets users personalise videos and send their message out to Santa. It can also be used for call personalisation. Wouldn’t it be great if the kids could get a very special call on Christmas Eve from Santa? They’ll surely be excited to know that they’ve behaved exemplary throughout the year. Put technology to good use and make the holiday season unforgettable for tots. Portable North Pole is available on both iOS and Android. Follow the steps and help Santa gather all the info he needs to send your loved ones the most interesting and inspiring tailor-made phone call or video message. Users can even download an HD version of their custom video to cherish for years to come.
Santa in Your Phone
Next on the list we have Santa in Your Phone. The app is only available on iOS devices, and it’s very easy to use. Just download the app, and prepare a pre-recorded video call with Santa, so that you can prove to your kids that he’s “real”. Take a photo of your child, select their age, and decide on a behaviour. If your kid was naughty throughout the year, you can choose a phone call personalised to compel the child to be nicer. But then again, you don’t want to ruin Christmas, right? Just choose “reason to congratulate”, and put a big bright smile on their faces. When Santa calls on Christmas Eve and your kids see that the big guy has their photo, they’ll believe he’s the real deal.
A Call from Santa
Keep your kids’ behaviour in check during the holidays with A Call from Santa (Android). This app is a perfect tool for parents to use when they want to stop the kids from eating too much candy, or start whining because they want to open gifts before Christmas morning. Wow them by asking for a personalised phone call from Santa, and they might reconsider their bad behaviour. A Call from Santa has Santa’s real voice embedded in the app, unlimited free calls, and a tracker that the kids can use to keep an eye on Santa’s whereabouts. Use it to check the forecast at the North Pole, and assure your little ones that Santa will bring them the best gifts regardless of the weather conditions.
Google’s Santa Tracker
Google’s colourful and imaginative Santa world on the Santa Tracker app is still one of our favourites. Each day offers a new experience to your kids. Similar to an interactive game, the app is more like a holiday calendar. Toddlers can listen to reindeer hooves and sleigh bells, and if that’s not enough they can follow Santa’s footsteps and assess where he’s heading. Watching videos, playing the games, and exploring Santa’s world has never been more fun!
Video Calls with Santa
Can’t convince the kids that Santa’s real? Do you find it hard to make them believe in Santa’s boring phone calls? No worries, Video Calls with Santa comes to the rescue. They really are the best way to talk to Santa online. The super-cool app has interactive video calling features. It allows users to set up realistic video chats, and kids can talk directly with Santa; even see him on the screen to convince themselves he’s real. There are several pre-recorded video calls you can choose to discipline naughty kids and reward the nice ones. And if that’s not enough, there’s even a special video call available where tots can tell Santa what they want to get for Christmas. All you have to do is download the app, select a call type, and speak with Santa. When you’re done answering the questions, tap the screen and your call will be automatically recorded.
Make Christmas special for the kids, and use your smart device to get in touch with Santa. What’s great about these apps is that they can be used all year long. We know disciplining kids can be tough for parents. But when Santa comes into play, they’ll just have to give in and be nice. Otherwise, no gifts for Christmas!
