Colin The Reindeer farts his way onto iPad

Yep, farts. We may try to deny it, but all parents know how funny bottom-gas is for the average child. Now there’s a Christmas book-app based on the phenomenon called Colin The Reindeer.

“Colin is a reindeer who desperately wants to be a part of Santa’s Christmas delivery team. The problem is, he isn’t very good,” explains its App Store listing. “On top of that, the other reindeer don’t want to be in the team with Colin because he has a gas problem caused by eating Christmas trees.”

We’ve all been there. Well, not through Christmas trees, necessarily…

Anyway, the story sees Colin getting his chance with the sleigh to save Christmas, with lots of interactivity, animation and digital colouring.

We like the look of it, and also the way it uses humour for serious purposes (“Messages for children about the importance of being yourself, never giving up, friendship and self-belief”. Also about not eating conifers.)

Colin The Reindeer costs £2.49 on the App Store, and is iPad-only.
