We recently featured the web version of this fun and impressive app. The idea behind Portable North Pole is that you child (or grown-up!) can receive calls and video from the North Pole.

Our favourite is the free version – it has no irritating adverts and after a few easy questions it will personalise your video and loads within a minute or so. Your children will love hearing and seeing Father Christmas because it really feels as if he is talking directly to them.

Don’t Grind

Don’t Grind is reminiscent of many ‘Keep ’em Up’ games but grabs your attention with the adorable googly-eyed banana character, making for an addictive game that you won’t be able to put down.

The aim of this game is to keep your new banana friend from the fate of the large, circular buzz-saws. Tap anywhere on the screen to jump and swipe left or right to nudge him. We think Don’t Grind is a fun game for both young and old players.

Mannequin Challenge

The Internet’s most recent craze now has an app! In Mannequin Challenge, your character has a zippy hover board and the aim is to whizz around capturing the best and most exciting mannequin footage than you can.

This game works on the basis that you collect coins to upgrade your character and as always, you can share your progress with and challenge your friends.
