A couple of weeks ago I told y'all about this cool company that helps add a little magic to your child's Christmas. I received a letter, phone call, and video from Santa--all personalized--in exchange for my honest review.
First of all, let me explain how all this works. You purchase the package of your choice (all components are available separately--the silver package is what I received and am reviewing here). Then you customize everything just the way you want it on the website. This is explained clearly and is very easy. And you don't have to do it all at once. I did the letter first and then came back a couple of days later to figure out the video, and then last of all, the phone call.
There are many, many choices for each component. I ended up writing my own letter so it was completely personalized. There are templates to choose instead if you aren't feeling super creative. You also get to choose from several videos and telephone calls. These are personalized with a picture of your child that you upload, and details such as age, birthday, and what they may have done to get on Santa's nice list this year!
The letter was my (and Lorelei's) favorite. She was totally surprised and mystified. The letter also came with a signed photo of Santa and a Nice List certificate.
I was a little confused about how the whole phone call thing would work but it's pretty clever. You download a free app on your phone and then schedule the call for when you want it to come in. Then you get a notification when it is scheduled and you have to confirm it. Once you locate your child you hit a button to accept the call. And you set a delay that causes a black screen to appear so that it really looks like a phone call coming in!
The video is sent to your email when it is ready and then it's up to you how and when to share it with your child. You can purchase it on DVD as well if you like. The phone call is saved on the app like a voice mail, so you can treasure this experience forever and your child can listen over and over again.
I was impressed by the quality of this product and by the user-friendliness of the process. I would recommend this either for smaller kids or for fun for non-believers (there are even options aimed specifically at adults!). I would NOT recommend it to a savvy eight year old who will spot the video/audio editing immediately.
It's not too late to order your very own Package from Santa!
