Ed Taylor is the greatest Santa in the history of Santas. Bar none. Period. End of story.

Ed Taylor is so authentic as St. Nick himself, I found myself confused and wondering “Is Santa actually for real and standing in front of me?”

He’s a master.

Even though my son was so shy, Santa Ed was fantastic…

We did a Zoom call with Santa. My son was so start struck he could barely speak, but when we got off the call he melted in happiness.

And, even though my son was so shy, Santa Ed was fantastic, asking questions and even getting my son to sing a song with him.

Thank you, Santa Ed, thankfully Christmas 2020 will have at least one very positive memory!

We will remember his call for many years to come!

It was magical!

The kids were so excited to have a Zoom visit with Santa! He was kind, sweet and patient.

My children are 3 and 1. They are busy boys, but Santa listened and was jolly and sweet.

I know we will remember his call for many years to come.

Thank you for the magic and joy you brought into our home.

You are amazing.

Thanks for all the compliments on his progress in school and for boosting his confidence

This is my second review, and I must say, we didn’t expect a video of the event. It was nice seeing my grandson from your view instead of from the back of his head. Thank you so much.

The booking process was very easy and I appreciated the reminders right up to the day. 

I also appreciated your requesting information Santa would want to know about my grandson (sports, pets, favorite subjects, etc.) This made the conversation very personal and believable. 

Jordan does not open up readily. I am sure he was awed by Santa’s presence on the video, but he thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Thanks for all the compliments on his progress in school and for boosting his confidence as a genuinely good person.

I mentioned in my first review that, if I closed my eyes, I could picture Jeff Bridges talking on the screen. Your cadence is similar to his, and he is one of my favorite actors. Kudos on that!.

This was so great…

This was an amazing experience for our boys!

Everything was great.

This was so great, definitely made up for the fact that we couldn’t take them to see Santa in person this year, however, we’d consider doing this any year!

Santa Ed is a true professional!

It was truly magical!

Especially with Covid wreaking havoc on the world, it was wonderful to have a safe alternative to in-person Santa visits.

The Zoom with Santa Ed brought so much joy and happiness to our son (and us!).

Thank you for keeping the wonder of the holiday season alive!

Santa Ed is a true professional! Every aspect of the visit (from the initial booking to confirmation and reminders and post-visit email correspondences) was helpful, friendly, and made the whole experience easy!

The call was magical…

Santa was amazing and my five grandkids were so excited they struggled to get their words out of their mouths.

Santa personalized the call and covered a great number of topics, telling jokes, listening to the kids wish lists, and encouraging them to “give back”

I would definitely recommend Santa Ed to everyone!

So easy, very professional….answered emails, was on time…..and the reminder system worked so well…

Santa Ed was FANTASTIC in every way

My boys were thrilled and have been talking about their call with Santa non-stop. His attention to detail was amazing!

We are so grateful for Santa Ed to help keep the magic alive this 2020 Christmas season.

Everything was smooth, easy to manage and perfectly streamlined.

We just wanted to thank you so much for making this call this morning so special for our two boys. It really meant the world to us!

They were so impressed that you knew so many details about their lives. It was incredible.

Thank you!

He created a happy memory… that will be with us for the rest of our lives.

Santa Ed was kind, charming, and engaging.

His zoom visit left our 4-year-old starstruck and glowing with pure joy.

We couldn’t ask for a better Santa experience for our child, and we are deeply grateful.

He created a happy memory for our family during a difficult time that will be with us for the rest of our lives.

When we booked a virtual visit with Santa Ed, we thought this would be an adequate substitute for an in-person one. We were so wrong. The experience was incomparably more personal, comfortable, memorable, and happy for our child.

Zoom visit with Santa Ed is our new family tradition.

Everything from booking through the delivery of the booking was perfect. Easy on the customer, smooth, and multiple extremely helpful reminders.

All very much appreciated.

Thank you, Santa Ed. We are grateful.

Ed, with that smile capable of striking even the memories of us adults…

Magic might seem like a trivial adjective when talking about Santa Claus. But the truth is that in such an upside-down world, the word “magic” takes on a different meaning.

How to tell a 3-year-old girl, who for the first time “feels” the Christmas spirit that what she sees on TV, in cartoons, in stories in books, she cannot live it because there is a tiny cursed virus that obliges to stay at home?

And then, Ed, with that smile capable of striking even the memories of us adults, even with a video call, brings back the magic.

Because after all, he’s not one of many Santa Clauses. It is Santa Claus calling from his home, far away, there at the North Pole.

And then Zoom becomes an opportunity to visit Santa Claus at his house, he too closed in the house, like all of us with a common destiny.

The magic becomes a smile on my daughter’s face the next morning.

This is my experience. This is my story of a few minutes not virtual, but real, thanks to technology.

Working with Santa Ed was Super easy and super responsive! A real pleasure!

Virtually they had a lot to say…

We loved it!

It was really fun for my kids to have a virtual visit with Santa. In the past when we have visited Santa in person, they have always been afraid to talk, but virtually they had a lot to say.

It was neat to watch and Santa Ed did a great job.

My favorite part was when they told him what they wanted for Christmas and his response was, “I like to bring surprises.”

Exceeded our expectations by a long shot…

Magical visit with Santa for our kids that exceeded our expectations by a long shot.

Santa Ed Taylor joined the Zoom and immediately called out all the children by name and proceeded to delight them in conversation.

Though we have visited Santa at our local mall for years, the experience with Santa Ed was better as it felt so personal and his attention was so focused on our kids.

Thank you for making our Christmas magical!

Great online booking system, and thanks for the video of the meeting!

Top-notch!

It was so personal and Santa Ed is beyond authentic…

My 8-year-old son immediately after the call turned to me and said “Dad that was amazing!” and my 5-year-old daughter hasn’t stopped talking about it since.

It was so personal and Santa Ed is beyond authentic.

This is exactly what we needed this year, I was so stressed about how to keep the magic alive and Santa Ed did just that.

I was up late one night with my 11-month-old and started trying to find virtual meetings with Santa and Santa Ed’s site and references sold me. It was initially a very intimidating process because you are so worried about the experience and will Santa be authentic, and after my research, I felt good about booking Santa Ed.

Then when I called prior to the visit and spoke with Santa Ed I was even more sold and more comfortable for the kids to meet Santa in this way.

Thank you for the experience! You kept the magic alive in a year where it seems magic is hard to find.

He was the perfect Santa and absolutely prepared with conversation starters and sweet questions

I booked Santa Ed for a virtual visit with my great-niece on the east coast and it was truly magical!

She was so overwhelmed and excited.

Santa Ed clearly has a calling. He was the perfect Santa and absolutely prepared with conversation starters and sweet questions.

Thank you for making a little girl’s Christmas during a touch year so special. I don’t think she’ll ever forget it.

Santa Ed was professional and great. Although I booked him for a virtual visit this time, I’m a TV Writer/Producer and will absolutely keep him in mind for any project that needs a Santa.

5 STARS!

We did a Santa Zoom call for my 3-year-old due to 2020.

It went great and we are thinking about doing it again. She adored it.

She loved it and has been talking about how happy she is she got to talk to Santa and wants to do it again.

She loves Santa and wants to make sure he has the best Christmas ever.

We loved hearing about the North Pole and singing Christmas carols… 

My boys were star struck by Santa Ed!

He personalized their visit, mentioning details only REAL Santa could know about our home and details from the boys’ lives.

We loved hearing about the North Pole and singing Christmas carols.

This was a very special experience we will revisit even when not in the midst of a pandemic!

It was so great to not have to wait in line.

Santa Ed is the perfect Santa!

I am so grateful for this service!

Booking and communication leading up to the visit was seamless.

We appreciated the confirmation emails and reminders ahead of our session.

How I’d imagine Santa as opposed to a caricature…

We loved our time with Santa Ed!

As a parent, I really appreciated the effort Ed made to connect with my children.

I especially loved that Ed was as “realistic” as possible, playing the part perfectly but not overdoing it.

He was more how I’d imagine Santa as opposed to a caricature.

Thank you for making our Christmas 2020 Santa visit special and unique!

One of the best interactions we have ever had with a Santa

The kids loved it!

Santa Ed was so good with them. Him being able to throw in little facts like he knew them made the kids comfortable and one of the best interactions we have ever had with a Santa.

The kids were so excited leading up to it and didn’t lose the excitement.

I was worried since 30 min on zoom with a 4 year old can be rough, but Santa Ed kept them entertained and let them be kids (my 4 year old decided he needed to eat carrots after they discussed feeding reindeers). He let them show him their drawings and was so patient with them.

This is a year where we worry about kids missing out on the holidays. This was a way to give them some of that magic for the season.

My son said he PREFERRED the virtual visit…

We had an incredibly magical time! Santa was incredibly kind and genuine.

My son said he PREFERRED the virtual visit to seeing Santa in person because he got so much time to talk to him!

Everything was perfect!

The Best Birthday Ever

I planned a Christmas in July themed quarantine birthday for my son’s 6th birthday and boy did a zoom with Santa Ed make it (in my son’s words) “the best birthday ever”.

Not only was Santa Ed really nice, responsive and easy to work with, he took the time to learn a few facts about my son that made it such a unique experience.

This is not your average Santa!

He is the real deal with an atmosphere to match his authentic look.

I don’t know how we are going to top this birthday unless Santa Ed is willing to ride his sleigh to the east coast and squeeze down our chimney next year.

We would definitely recommend and will be reaching out this winter for another zoom around the holiday season.

Very easy to book and connect with Santa Ed

It was just fantastic to have Santa Ed coming to my house virtually through ZOOM.

My son was ecstatic with Santa’s visit which he thought was not going to happen this year due to COVID.

Santa Ed was able to keep the magic of Christmas alive at my home and that was great.

I will definitely recommend Santa Ed’s work to all of my friends.

Very easy to book and connect with Santa Ed.

We communicated through email and SMS and he delivered the Christmas message as previously agreed.

Santa Ed was really great.

I have recommended this to all my friends!

Our visit with Santa was amazing and just what our family needed in these different times.

I have recommended this to all my friends!

Everything was so easy, the only thing I wished I would have known was to take my background (I use for teaching) off of my Zoom account, but other than that it was so wonderful.

Santa Ed was just what my 6 and 8 year old needed…

Santa Ed was amazing!

This year has been challenging in so many ways but keeping the Christmas joy alive with a virtual visit with Santa Ed was just what my 6 and 8 year old needed.

With the personal touch he puts on it and the kids having a chance to sit and chat with him, they were glowing after the call.

And now we can’t wait to watch the video that came in so quickly after!!

They were shy at first, but Santa Ed got them talking, asking questions, and even singing.  

Like a lot of people, we found Santa Ed in 2020. This turned out to be so much fun, though, that I’m certain we’ll do it again next year, with or without our customary lap photo in the town square.

The kids had a fantastic time getting to talk to Santa and ask him questions. They were shy at first, but Santa Ed got them talking, asking questions, and even singing.

My wife and I have been talking a lot lately about the good things that have come out of this otherwise difficult year. In years to come, I know that our 2020 visit with Santa will be high up on that list.

Everything went off without a hitch. We had a question, and we received a prompt answer. The kids were so amused when I told them that I’d sent a text to Santa and received a reply.

He’s still talking about it weeks later

THANK YOU so much for your amazing video call for Ollie.  He’s still talking about it weeks later and coming up with questions he wishes he had asked and tells me he’s going to need to write another letter.

Thank you for praising him about being so brave and good during our social distancing.

You’ve helped make a golden memory for a challenging year and we will never forget it 🙂

All excellent and timely in answering questions and getting all the extra details and personal notes to make sure it was a magical conversation with the man who knows what you’re up too. 😉

My husband actually loved it the most as we didn’t have to wait in long lines at the mall  

“It was a great experience and the kids were super surprised. My husband actually loved it the most as we didn’t have to wait in long lines at the mall like in the past 🙂

It was a much more personal experience and we didn’t feel rushed at all.”

Everything was organized and went smoothly. Loved the reminders and the ability to provide some prep information about the kids.

I also loved being able to send a video to the grandparents.

Santa Ed brought a much needed light and holiday cheer onto this tough year for our family.”

More intimate than a traditional “in person” event!

“Santa Ed was fantastic with our twin four year olds.

He engaged them, kept them chatting during the whole visit.

Definitely a special time and more intimate than a traditional “in person” event.

So easy to book and the Zoom link worked perfectly!

Santa was right on time.”

We prefer this visit over the ones in the past

“My children visited with Santa Ed on Zoom before Christmas this year.

He was delightful and actually we decided we prefer this visit over the ones in the past where we saw Santa for a few minutes in person.

Booking was super easy and effortless.

Santa Ed asked for details about what the kids might want to talk about.

My oldest is asking a lot of questions this year. Santa Ed specifically addressed a lot of my sons questions as if he already knew. Ha!

It really seemed to boost his confidence that Santa is real.

Great experience! We hope to do this again next year!”
