Personalizing the Experience

What's fun is that you can really personalize the experience that your children have with the Santa’s Magic Phone Call & Text app. You can use your own voice to send a message as Milo the Christmas elf. The app will disguise your voice so kids will never know it's you. Also, you're selecting a message so there are different categories so you can choose one that applies to your child such as great job with their potty training, excellent use of manners, really good healthy eating, and other categories. If you have a child who is starting to learn how to read perhaps a text message from Santa would be fun.
