Feel the spirit of Christmas and let's all start singing happy tunes with this enchanting app, the Jolly JIngle.

‘Ber’ months, cold weather, colorful ornaments, never ending wish lists, happy tunes and ads on television and radio, our generous father Saint Nicholas along with his dependable reindeer and elves, plus our long lost friends and relatives coming to life once again, it only means one thing—Christmas is almost here! Yey!

Who doesn’t love Christmas? I, for one, am always looking forward to this most-celebrated season of the year. It’s Christmas time! Regardless of the fuss that it usually brings, I still love it to bits! I enjoy every minute of the Christmas eve and the big day. Not so much on buying presents, though, because it’s always a pain to be surrounded by tons of people who are scramming and trying their best to finish their lists. On the other hand, I am fascinated with wrapping presents. *Haha!* I’m weird, I know.

Anyway, enough of my stories and let’s get back to business. Since it’s already the start of the Christmas season, Applatter would like to give you with an early Christmas greeting, Merry Christmas!, and a download-worthy present. Are you excited? Well, you should be! Let’s all brace ourselves for this feel good application, the .

Developed by Hompimplay, Jolly Jingle is a Christmas inspired musical and game application for kids and those who are still young at heart. This fresh and exciting app clearly adds life and fun to the spirit of Christmas. It is packed with 5 festive songs that can be played in varying tunes such as kids choir, female solo, instrumental, and piano. There are also some lyrics provided for every song, which you can opt to show so you and your little angels can easily sing along with the songs. Each song is packed with interactive games that will surely keep your kiddos busy for some time. And by the way, don’t forget to read the Christmas greeting on the main menu. You can even share it with your family and friends via e-mail or Facebook.

C’mon, Let’s Sing and Play!

Here are the songs featured in this kid-friendly app:

♪ Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer

had a very shiny nose.

And if you ever saw him,

you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer

used to laugh and call him names.

They never let poor Rudolph

join in any reindeer games…

Hey, it’s Rudolph!—our favorite red-nosed reindeer. Kids and adults are very much familiar with this famous reindeer. I think it’s also safe to say that aside from Santa Claus, we are all looking forward to seeing this fictional and unique reindeer because of his glowing red nose. Agree?

In the song Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, which is a part of the Jolly Jingle app, we can easily see this red-nosed star inside a bubble. And interestingly when you tap Rudolph, his picture will go full screen so you will be seeing Rudolph’s face in details. Aside from Rudolph, there are also some unique characters featured in this song. You can play with a boy, a girl, and the other reindeer who are also inside the bubbles. There’s an elephant tied in a balloon too, a tiny Santa inside the chimney, a flying unicorn, and a lot more.

♪ Frosty the Snowman

 Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul

With a corncob pipe and a button nose

and two eyes made out of coal.

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale they say

He was made of snow but the children

know how he came to life one day…

Frosty the snowman, and not an ice cream (okay, it’s meant to be a joke!), is the next featured song in this app. Here you can see Frosty holding a snowball while having fun with some kids. Once you tap Frosty, he will throw you with a snowball which will burst instantly on your screen. (Kids will find this really amusing, that’s for sure!)

Aside from this popular snowman, there are a number of entertaining stuff that you can see in this cool section. You will see Saint Nicholas in a parachute, houses, buildings, and Christmas trees that will be enlightened once you tap them, a toy soldier saluting and greeting you with a warm smile, and many more.

♪ Up on the Housetop

Up on the housetop, reindeer pause

Out jumps good ol’ Santa Claus

Down through the chimney with lots of toys

All for the little ones, Christmas joys

Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn’t go?

Ho, Ho, Ho! Who wouldn’t go?

Up on the housetop, click, click, click

Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick…

Personally, I am not really familiar with this song. For some reasons, I haven’t heard of it when I was still a kid. But, not anymore. Because of this app, Jolly Jingle, now I am aware that there’s a Christmas song entitled Up on the Housetop. Well, I find the song fascinating because of its catchy tune. It certainly adds a different touch of spark and twist in the app.

Here you can see Santa on the rooftop holding his big sack of gifts. Tapping Santa Claus will make him jump and go to the other houses. Once on top, he will throw some candies and other colorful treats for the kids. Not only that, your children will absolutely be amazed with the other characters seen in this section such as the huge green bear, a penguin, a gingerbread man, and many more.

♪ Jingle Bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh, oh

Jingle bells, jingle bells

Jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh…

This is one of the all-time Christmas songs all over the globe. Your little ones can definitely catch up to its addicting melody and learn its lyrics in no time. If your kids enjoy Christmas carols or you want them to really have a great time singing happy songs, then this is the perfect chant for them.

The song features Santa Claus with some kids on his sleigh right on your screen. The screen is filled with shining stars that turns into snowflakes after being tapped. Mr. Moon is also on the upper right hand corner of the picture. This is where you can enjoy a free ride with Santa Claus just by pressing the reindeer to move forward.

♪ We Wish You a Merry Christmas

 We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year…

Merry Christmas, everyone! I personally think that this is the first Christmas chant that most of us have learned during our younger years. Am I right? This Jolly Jingle app wouldn’t be complete without this most-sought after Yuletide melody.

In this section, you will be presented with five neatly wrapped boxes showing a variety of gifts and Christmas figures—Santa Claus, Mr. Gingerbread man, Rudolph, an angel, a toy robot, a snowman, an elf, and a lot more surprising items. A group of children’s choir singing on both sides of the screen will also entertain you and your kids.

End Note

As my early Christmas present to you, let me feed your eyes with some of their enchanting graphics: 

With only 40 remaining days before the birth of Christ or Christmas Day, I am deeply thrilled knowing that there’s an app like this that we can use during this joyful season. Thanks to the Hompimplay team for providing me with a premium version of this app because I really believe that it’s definitely worth the try. Design wise, I think the images should be further enhanced to make it more visually appealing to the kids. As for the app itself, I wish they added more songs and games to make it even more engaging. But nonetheless, I enjoyed its magical features and I bet your little monsters will feel the same likewise. I can’t even help myself from singing some of the featured songs and be excited for the most wonderful event next month. My final thoughts? Jolly Jingle is a must-try app especially this Christmas time. It’s a family friendly, educational, and entertaining app all in one. *Nice work, guys!*

Don’t be a Grinch and let your kiddos enjoy the spirit of Christmas. and let’s all have a happy and blessed Christmas! *Ho! Ho! Ho!*

Feel the warmth and love that this most-celebrated holiday brings. Take a look at the app trailer below:
