Beating up irreverent Santa makes this not for little kids.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Like the other talking friends apps (Talking Carl and Talking Rex the Dinosaur), TALKING SANTA is an entertaining diversion that runs through its bag of tricks pretty quickly. That being said, the app's ability to let you record videos and email customized postcards makes it a fun way to send humorous season's greetings to friends. Because you can beat up Santa, this is not an app to use with younger kids; but older kids and grown-ups will probably find it funny (for a little while).

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
