We've really been looking forward to the festive season this year and I think that's because Eva is now at an age where she is starting to understand it all and gets very excited at the thought of it. She loves nothing more than telling us what she wants for christmas and talks about the big man himself all the time. It seemed the obvious year to make sure she received her first letter from Santa.
We were asked if we would like to receive and review a letter from http://www.santaspostoffice.co.uk, so I jumped at the chance. The letters cost £4.99 and are quick and easy to make. There are 4 different designs of letter to choose from. Once you've chosen your design you fill out a few details about your child for the personalisation part of the letter and then place your order. You can also select a delivery date, whether it's the next day or some time in the future.
Eva loves nothing more than receiving post (which she doesn't get often). She seems to get so excited when the postman arrives and runs off downstairs. You can imagine how excited she was to see this envelope in the door. There was a lot of screaming with glee and wows a plenty.
We enlisted daddy's help to read the letter which mentioned that santa knew Eva wanted a garage for her cars and also mentioned Alfie our dog. We would've liked to have put Eva's sister's name in it but seeing as I haven't had her yet, we obviously couldn't.
We were all really pleased with the letter. I think it's perfect for her age group as the illustrations are warm and friendly and still very child like. The envelope was a huge hit and captured her attention and got her extremely excited straight away.
The wording is easy for a young child to understand. Eva really was captivated by it all and listened in carefully. What is great to see is that she talks about things that were mentioned in the letter. This gives me hope that the letter is actually working and she believes santa is watching her every move.
I'd recommend this to anyone with young children. The letter was easy to make on the website and it arrived very quickly. It was a wonderful, magical moment seeing Eva receive it. It takes pride of place now in our kitchen under Eva's orders.
How old was your child when they received their first letter from Santa?
