December 5 is International Ninja Day and what better way to celebrate than with an app! Math Heroes is a super cool app for the little ninja or kunoichi in your family. The customizable avatar performs different ninjitsu moves as each of the basic math operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) are practiced. Yogome is really the Grand Master when it comes to edutainment apps and like their other apps, you will not be disappointed with this one. An engaging presentation and progress reports for parents make this a must-download for your little one.

Your kids are going to love this one! Christmas Blabber Box is a puppet play type of app where the user provides the puppet's voice and controls the puppet's movements. You child chooses one of four characters: Santa, Elf, Nutcracker or Reindeer, then records a message, animating the character as s/he talks. The message is saved and then can be shared via Facebook, SMS or email. So much fun and a great way to spread the Christmas cheer.

Another free Lego app! This time by Warner Bros, who also made Gravity: Don't Let Go. Speedorz is an arcade style racing game based on the Lego set, World of Chima. This free app comes with limited options to customize the mini-figure avatar and choice of Speedor vehicle. As races are won and game currency is earned, more options are unlocked, with each vehicle having slightly different strengths and weaknesses. This app is really suited to a younger age set and would be particularly handy on long car trips over the vacation period.

The Nutcracker is a story often told at bedtime as part of a family's Christmas traditions. There are many versions/books and so it stands to reason there would be many Nutcracker apps. There are not many like this one, however, using incredible illustrations by Yoko Tanaka and the timeless classic music score by Tchaikovsky. You simply must add this app to your virtual bookshelf. Especially while it is free!
