“Pure Magic”

“PGH Santa’s visit with my little girls was the most magical Christmas activity we have ever experienced. Truly. He completely customized our event based on what I was looking for (and constant changes with COVID) and made it extra personal for my daughters.

“He read to them, sang many songs (on the spot!) in his beautiful Santa voice, and conversed with my girls so sweetly. I had previously provided gifts for the girls to put in his sack, and he handed them out seamlessly, while not knowing exactly what they were.

“He is not just a Santa, but a skilled entertainer, who thinks on his feet and improvises. As an example, right before he rang our doorbell, I made a last-minute request for him to deliver our elf’s missing hat to the girls; and without missing a beat, he carried that out during our event and completely surprised my girls with this missing item from the North Pole and the story behind it.

“Christmas magic is very important to me,
and PGH Santa exceeded our expectations in every way.”

-Maranda F

“We used this Santa at a family party. He was nothing short of magnificent.

“He told the kids a story, greeted them all by name, sang to them, told jokes, and distributed gifts from his sack to each kid (gifts were provided to him in advance). The kids had a blast and the adults were blown away by how magical and real he was. He had every single person laughing. He was very patient and didn’t leave until every child was greeted and everyone who wanted a photo had the opportunity to take one.

I’m sure he has a really tight schedule this year and even with all the COVID craziness, he was a pleasure to work with and everything went off without a hitch. You could clearly tell he was quite experienced at bringing the magic! We can’t wait to see if PGH Santa has time to visit us next year!”

-Sarah E

He brought the warmth of Christmas into our home and filled the room with jolly laughter and singing. We will look forward to visiting again next year with much anticipation.”

That was absolutely epic. 
You brought the magic! 
You should have your own KPBS kids show!
Singing Rudolph together was magical!
My son came in thinking you were not the real Santa and left jumping for joy convinced!
And how you talked about knowing me and watching me grow up and how I love them hit me right in my heart. 
Thank you. You have a true gift my friend. 
Thank you to quarantine that we had the pleasure to meet you and spend this time together. 
Forever grateful,

“We had an in person (socially distant/ outside/masked) visit and it was absolutely amazing! We have a 9 & 8 year old and they were in absolute amazement with his visit. They were allowed to gently “tug” on his real beard! He also arrived at our house on foot which was perfect as we were outside, in the dark when he showed up and he called out to our kids by name. He had personalized notes on each kid and he talked to each of them in a very personalized manner. Our 9 year old was questioning him a bit but Santa handled it well. We highly recommend! The kids are absolutely pumped and invigorated from the visit.”

-Nikki R


“AMAZING. SO AMAZING. I have no other words. Angel on earth. So sweet. Made my baby’s day. I cried in the background. He talked about it for days. I wish we could call him once a week. He’s truly that amazing.”

Absolute MAGIC!!! 💫


“Thank you so much PGH Santa for making this 🎄 season so special to this little boy!! The personalized conversation was perfect!! He talked for hours after the virtual visit that Santa really knew all about him. Thank you so much @pghsanta”

-Angie P


I cannot express how happy my younger one was to have time to talk with Santa. The older boy is learning more about the magic of Santa and this conversation was so well put and loving! The zoom experience was more relaxed and personal than all our years traveling to the mall! Thank you for remembering the important details like their names, their elves names, and everything else that makes a true connection between children and Santa!
This was a very special evening for us!

-Jamie J


“PGH Santa came to my daughter’s ‘Christmas In July’ Birthday party and he was a hit!! Not only was he awesome with the girls, but Santa even went down the slip ‘n slide!! Would definitely recommend him for holidays especially in July as I believe Christmas in July should be celebrated!!”

-Christy Z


A bright spot in 2020!


Can’t say enough good things about PGH Santa. He was so easy to work with and my kids were thrilled to meet the real Santa who knew their names and had received their letters and knew just what they wanted for Christmas.

-Jackie B


The kids loved the individualized attention and all the details Santa magically knew about them thanks to the ingenious form we filled out before the meeting. They also loved having plenty of time to talk to Santa. They had LOTS of questions and comments. PGH Santa made this pandemic Santa visit the most memorable ever and sure made this year special!

-Andrea T


THE BEST

I would choose this personalized visit over an in person visit. Pgh Santa is worth every Penny. Our little boy was absolutely delighted and full of joy to hear that Santa was proud of him. you cannot get a more authentic, kind, or jolly Santa anywhere else!
Highly recommend!!!

-Bridget E


“In true 2020 form, visits with Santa this year at the usual mall spots were either converted to virtual visits, or would involve Santa sitting behind plexiglass, with a face mask, and minimal personal interaction with the kiddos. With our kids being so young, we wanted to provide them with a true, personal Santa experience. PGH Santa did not disappoint! He was jolly, interactive with all of the children (all of whom were under the age of 5), and brought loads of Christmas cheer. Even the adults felt the Christmas magic when interacting and visiting with PGH Santa. I highly recommend PGH Santa for your next party, get together, or individualized Santa visit. We cannot wait to book him again next year and for years to come!”

-Stephanie Y


Scheduled a zoom call with Santa for my kids this year and it was beyond amazing! Santa was pure magic, kept the conversation moving the entire call even with my two quiet-at-first kiddos. I couldn’t recommend this experience any more!

-Tonya T


“I would absolutely recommend PGH Santa to everyone. I can’t thank you enough for not only bringing Santa in to our home, but to do it at a reasonable price.

“I heard great things from a friend prior to booking the virtual visit, and you did not disappoint. Thank you again for making my son’s visit with Santa magical!”
-Kris M

Santa was authentic, friendly, personable and joyful. He tailored the experience personally to my girls and what we had already done at home with them to get ready for Christmas. He made time for him to mention the things we requested and he went with the flow as my girls asked him questions and talked with him as well! I can’t recommend him enough!
-Alicia C


“Pgh Santa created the most magical little night for our street. We watched our children smile & laugh & ask questions & I swear I saw the twinkle in their eyes that I had forgotten to look for this year. His kind demeanor, quick wit & belly laughs truly brought this Christmas season to life for us. Highly recommend. ❤️

-E Baker


“This call I scheduled was so nice and my kids were amazed. They called their grandparents right after to tell them about it. The smiles lasted for long after and they are even more excited for Christmas now than ever before!”

-Becky H

-Tracey W


“We had an outdoor Santa visit on our street this evening. 2020 has been a year when magical moments can be difficult to find, and tonight there was Christmas magic for both kids and adults! Everyone has commented on what a wonderful visit their children had. Thank you so very much for making the children (and adults) smile and laugh.”

“Santa rolled so effortlessly with my 3 year old’s tireless attempts to derail the call (SANTA! I have SHOES!) and did a great job of engaging my reluctant 6 year old. It was perfect.”

-Heather H


Pgh Santa was the best part of 2020! I’m so happy my children had a personalized zoom visit with Santa. He reinforced all of the behaviors we expect and really helped them feel special and loved. Knowing their names and the name of their elf on the shelf was awesome. My daughter was shaking with excitement the whole time and my son said he was blushing all the while. Lol. It wasn’t rushed and they had time to ask questions to which Santa had all the best answers! Thank you thank you thank you!

-Carla C

AMAZING!

The experience was truly amazing and flawless. Santa did a fantastic job using the previously provided info which made the visit incredibly magical for our son.

-Sarah R


 Loved this! I love how personal it was. My son was so excited after the zoom call that he got to speak with the “actual real Santa this time” LOL My son was surprised that Santa knew all the things going on, the name of his elf and such. The setting, costume, and all was great! Also, I am very impressed on the speedy back and forth in the emails and set up. THANK YOU! We both loved the experience!

-Jaime S


I had honestly never heard of the PGH Santa before this year, but I am so glad that we scheduled this visit! He was so excited to be talking to our kids, and they laughed and giggled for the entire visit. The information form that is sent before the visit really gives him good information, and it was incredible to see their faces light up when Santa used the info. from the form. Beyond pleased with this experience!

PGH Santa made a Santa visit possible when otherwise we would not have been able to see him. He takes special care to personalize each experience, and my 4 year old was THRILLED to be having a video call with Santa. Loved the background and Santa’s whole look. He was very professional and sweet. Great experience!
Everything worked very smoothly!
