Types of Christmas themed games available
Christmas is a particularly heartfelt feast for children because Santa is coming and bringing presents to everyone!
Santa Claus thus becomes the undisputed protagonist of Christmas-themed games available on all platforms.
As a genus we find instead:
– Simulative: it may seem strange but there are games available in which we can record a vocal message or a personalized video to have it repeated by Santa Claus “in the flesh”, so that the children remain open-mouthed to hear their darling’s name and surname and date of birth (so as to make sure that the message is addressed to them).
– Fake calls and messages: the simplest apps simply allow you to emulate a fake Santa Claus call or receive messages in which Santa warns of his arrival and the gifts he has prepared for the little ones.
– Strategic: some games require you to manage the village that Santa Claus has at the North Pole, so he can generate enough gifts for all the children in the world (Farmville style).
These types of games are obviously reserved for slightly older children, as they require skill and attention.
– joking: shave Santa Claus!
Other types of games are structured to entertain the children with some tricks like removing the beard of Santa Claus or his collaborators with a razor.
Obviously nothing vulgar or bad, only games that can make a child smile.
– educational: these games allow children at an early age to learn numbers, shapes, and colors using the Christmas characters as a base so that children can learn while having fun even under the Christmas holidays.
After seeing together the types of Christmas themed games that can be found in the vast world of apps, below we will find what we believe to be the best apps for Christmas themed games for Android and iOS.
1) Talking Santa (Android and iOS)
There is nothing better than playing with a Santa Claus who speaks and interacts with the user based on the part of the screen pressed.
It will thus be possible to entertain the younger children with the figure of Santa Claus throwing snowballs, offering a gift or singing and dancing!
The app is very simple and available to everyone, and you can change the background to interact with (ranging from snow in the mountains to a fireplace in a house).

3) Santa’s Factory (Android and iOS)
With this strategy game, we will have to manage the village of Santa Claus, trying to produce as many gifts as possible and embellishing the territory held by Santa Claus at the North Pole.
We will be able to build new houses and game factories, help Santa with gifts for the children, grow hay every day for the reindeer, receive letters from all the children of the world and finally send the sled full of gifts for the usual tour of Christmas’ Eve.
