Looking for a Way to Entertain Kids in the Car This Christmas--There's an App for That!

One of the perks of bragging about your obsession on Christmas music is getting to check out a Christmas music product---this week I got to add the iCaroler app to my iPhone if I could write a review about it.

ICaroler is a really cute app that shows little cartoon people singing a few popular Christmas carols. You can tap on the figures to mute them, move them around or just enjoy the song. You can also carol with fellow iPhone friends. I didn't have time to do this but did find a video of someone did do it.

For 99 cents, I thought it was cute but nothing to really go nuts over, but then I handed it to my two girls (8 and 11). They absolutely love this thing! They aren't networking but they love figuring out the different chorale parts--muting some,moving the characters around. And Santa even flies by every now and then--they go crazy when that happens.

As a matter a fact, I handed them the iPhone after homeschool work to see what they would do. They giggled and sang and giggled more for a good hour! A quote from Miley (11), "this is the coolest thing ever!". Now that is totally worth 99 cents!

You can find the app by clicking here.

For $.99 - totally worth it - and that they love it, priceless.

Do I sound like the commercial? ;)

My kids totally love all the apps that I don't think are impressive...but what keeps Jax in the shopping cart is a winner with me. I'm pretty sure if it wasn't for my phone and its apps, Jax and I wouldn't leave the house as much! :)

My girls (7 and 8) loved iCaroler, too. Our two year old was captivated with turning them on and off for the longest time.

If you and your girls would be interested in trying out our iPhone app (Christmas Characters) let me know, I have a few promo codes left and could use a little feedback on how well it works for older girls.

You can direct message be on Twitter (gwinklosky).

Merry Christmas to all.

That's awesome. How do you think people stuck on an airplane with us for a few hours would take to it??

Headphones Denise, headphones ;)
(and if you luck out with a jolly crew, you might have them all singing!)
