Christmas Story for Kids: The Elf Adventure
iPad, Android, Kindle fire | kids app for ages 2-5 yrs & the whole family
We want to introduce you to a really good Christmas app for the upcoming Christmas season, which we already wanted to introduce to you last year. Well, the wait was worth it in the end, as the Advent calendar app is now also available for all systems.
* The app is called “Christmas Story for Kids: The Elf Adventure” for iPad
* For Android it’s called “The Elf Adventure”
* For Kindle fire it’s called “The Elf Adventure – A Christmas Story For Kids
Whichever way it’s called, the content stays the same and that’s what we want to show you now.
Open the windows one by one – no cheating!
The Advent calendar app only reveals it’s content with a little trick during the pre-Christmas period: Kids can only open those windows, which have or had their turn, so that kids can’t cheat. This is why we had to forward the time of the system, in order to review the whole calendar. By the time of the 24th December, all contents should be unlocked for our kids by then.
Digital Advent Calendar fun
Whilst other conventional Advent calendars attract with their chocolates or toys, this app offers kids wonderfully illustrated mini-games. On the 1.day (this much we may say) one needs to polish the misted up window, where Father Elf is already working on the very long wish list behind it. One day later, kids can help Mother Elf with the baking of the Christmas cookies.
Toys are also being constructed and repaired…
Before those mini-games start, a little text is displayed, which tell kids an additional funny little story over the next 24 days. As there’s no audio response, parents or older siblings may need to read out to the younger children and jump into the part of a storyteller.

In our YouTube trailer you can see a few windows which we opened for you, so that you can take a closer look at the app and see if you like it or not.

Advent Calendar app for kids | Our rating
The mini-games are done within 2-3 finger-touches – but this is usually the case with toddlers and kids apps for young children. Nevertheless, we still enjoyed the pre-viewing of the complete calendar. The illustrations are funny and spread some good mood and joy, so it’s brilliant to start off the day with this app, as kids will be pleasantly entertained. We also got to list a few Con’s, so we’re really hoping for a quick update before X-mas.
(+) 24 mini-games
(+) Great illustrations & animations
(+) Christmas Story
We would like a toddlers option, so that the app can be used without the displaying of the text (story) or at least be read out to the children.
(-) The text is showing over the edges twice
(-) A “please rate the app & facebook” window shows up after the 8th window
(-) no audio response
