Holiday giving: In this day and age we have the means to record all the special moments in the lives of our children. More than ever, people are taking pictures and shooting videos of their kids to share with friends and family, and to keep for themselves as memories to look back on years ahead. This winter, if you are dreading standing in line to take your kids to sit on Santa's lap for a brief moment only to get a hopeful memory, look towards Los Angeles based tech company Hello Santa, who are providing kids and even adults with the ability to have a real-time video chat with Santa in the North Pole. The calls are either spur of the moment or pre-scheduled through your iPhone, Droid, or computer webcam. Hello Santa is ideal for parents who want to give their children and grandchildren the gift of a lifetime, or for children who want something special to share with their friends for years to come.
While the company is marketing towards children, this is an extremely fun way for people of all ages to join in and share a very unique and creative piece of technology. Bring on a whole new Pinterest board inspiration! Watch the video above for a few of our favorite sample calls between kids and Santa.
Some users have stuck up their noses at the price of the app. When you look at what you're getting in return, it is very fair in price as nothing quite like it currently exists. Congrats to the whole team of elves at Hello Santa! We can't wait to see what you'll do for your next app.
