Apparently delivering all those iPads and PlayStations each year got Santa Claus thinking about ways to become more tech-savvy! Instead of writing out and mailing their Christmas wish lists, kids can get in touch with the big guy via text this holiday season. Zipwhip, a Seattle-based text messaging provider, hooked him up with a toll-free phone number so youngsters can get their requests to the North Pole at lightning speed (with help from Mom and Dad, of course).
Are your kids ready to send their list? Shoot a text to the Wish List Texting Line at 844-YO-SANTA (844-967-2682), and even include a picture of a Rudolph drawing to help him decorate his North Pole call center! Santa can receive up to 1,000 texts per second, so kids all over the world will be able to reach him. Make sure to keep the phone on hand to see Santa's response—the kids will receive a confirmation text with a link to a video message from Kris Kringle himself. What a fun way to kick off Christmas for kids! For more ways to get in the spirit, check out our favorite Christmas books and Christmas movies for kids.
