Since Halloween was basically yesterday and Thanksgiving is the a blink of an eye, that means Christmas is pretty much tomorrow, right? Now it’s time for Santa Claus to buy, wrap and tag those perfect presents. Was it L.O.L. Surprise your little one liked or the Poopsie slime? It’s all Barbie pink Greek to you. Luckily, if there’s one elf who always stays hip to the latest toy trends, it’s good old St. Nick.
Now it’s even easier than ever for your kids to keep in touch with their holly jolly hero. Thanks to unlimited data plans and a plethora of Santa calling apps and devices, calling the North Pole is a breeze. All you have to do is practice your eavesdropping and you’re on your way to making pretty much any kid believe in the magic of Santa and Christmas.
Talk To Santa For Free
1. The Original Santa Hotline
These fee-free international numbers have been in use for ages and are the perfect way for your kids to reach the big guy. You just need an actual phone. Call: +1-319-527-2680 or +1-712-770-4404
2. Ask Alexa
Is there anything Alexa can’t do? If you have an Echo, Echo Dot, etc. all you have to say is “Alexa, call Santa” and your Amazon device will connect the kiddos to Santa Claus or one of his polar friends.
3. Google knows Santa, too
Your Google Assistant can also call Claus. He’ll be too preoccupied for a live chat, but there’s still guaranteed fun to be had by all.
4. Message from Santa App
This app is seriously adorable. Kids can call Santa’s voicemail and choose to record a wish list, put someone on the naughty/nice list, find out the weather on the North Pole and so much more. There are also options to schedule a call, send text messages or create a video.
5. Personalized Call From Santa App
This app is extra cool because it lets you select message options based on when the call from Santa takes place and can be used all year — including on your child’s birthday.
6. The Christmas Dialer
You can visit Christmas Dialer, give them your number and select from several automated messages. Need a warning from Santa? They’ve got you covered. They also have messages from your Elf on the Shelf.
Get What You Pay For
7. Video Call Santa App
While this app is technically free, they have found ways to monetize the experience. One of the most popular (and totally worth it) upgrades is having the call personalized with your kiddo’s name.
8. Portable North Pole
This is another great technically free option that gets better if you don’t mind the splurge. Not only can you personalize, but you can send your video to groups of people. Plus, there are more options, including adults-only and birthday options.
