For the past 10 years or so, we’ve had the need for a Santa for 2 holiday events - at childcare center’s holiday party as well as our Christmas Eve open house. We’ve had some really bad experiences over the years (who knew Santas could be creepy). We lucked out 3 years ago when we found a real gem who really invested in making the kids happy, not just the adults. This year, though, he disappeared so we were really concerned that we wouldn’t be able to find another convincing Santa that would be able to engage with groups of curious kids and their parents. We used Thumbtack to put out our request in November and Keith got right back to us. Negotiations were plain and simple. Keith quoted us a fair price on the date we needed. We were lucky since it always so late in the season. Santa arrived on time m, ready to go. My wife likes to control the action at her childcare center and Santa didn’t skip a beat - he followed the action and was never surprised or flustered when kids would ask crazy questions. Utterly professional. This Santa won’t spoil kids dreams. He looks the part - you couldn’t see stubble, eyebrows or any other hair that would give Santa away. We’ve clearly found our new Santa provider and we are considering the other entertainment services and characters that they provide. From on discerning parent and caregiver to another — highly recommended.
