As a kid Christmas held a very special place in my heart. I loved waking up in the morning and finding goodies in my Christmas socks, in my bags and presents. I adored Santa Claus for being so wonderful and from what I saw in the movies and heard in stories, he seemed very huggable. Every year I would try and be a ‘good girl’ so that I would be rewarded by Santa. Of course, every year I would write a letter to Santa as well, letting him know, that I had been nice and so I deserved to get my wishes fulfilled. However, I never got the Barbie Dollhouse that I wanted or beautiful dress that I desired. My mom explained to me, that Santa chooses to fulfill wishes of only a handful of kids every year and some year I would get lucky. Little did I know, my secret Santa, my uncle stayed with us and every year on Christmas eve he would fill our socks/ bags with goodies when we were sleeping. I figured this out years later :)!
But this Christmas, your child can get lucky as Hamleys, the toy store, will give each kid an opportunity to get a personal visit from Santa himself with Hamleys ‘Letters to Santa’! For parents, it’s the joy of bringing back the lost art of letter writing as the kids write to Santa about all the good deeds they’ve done during the year and the toy they desire. Kids get a chance to experience a personal visit from Santa to their house with gifts of their choice, isn’t that awesome? What’s more, the children can reach him by either email, whatsapp and even his own website!
We have already filled our letters and mailed our wishes to Santa.
Also as a part of ‘Christmas at Hamleys’, there will be week-long festivities of fun, interactive activities held at the Hamleys stores, including, Santa visits, workshops, games, signature Hamleys Christmas parade, gorgeous interactive installations and much more.
Check out the atmosphere at Hamleys this weekend, aren’t they having a good time?
To participate, all the child has to do is write a letter to Santa, tell him how you have been good this year and what toys you would like from him.
All you have to do is write a letter the traditional way and drop it at the post boxes put up at the Hamleys Stores and in the Mall or you can ;
- Email your letters at [email protected]
- Write your letter, take a pic and whatsapp it to Santa on 9004478348
- Write a letter on letterstosanta.in
The best letters will get a visit from Santa to your house, with your wish list of toys delivered to your doorstep and also get to attend a Hamleys exclusive Christmas party.
Hamleys has always been more than just a toy store. Hamleys strives to bring toys to life with exciting events and make it an experience for the families.
