Grandma Lynne Brammall sent us this lovely feedback from a previous adventure:

"What can I say about the day... words like magical, enchanting, wonderful, exceptional just do not seem enough. You built the excitement and anticipation so beautifully that even the adults could not fail to be drawn in. My 6-year-old grandaughter came away convinced that this was the real Santa who had taken time to come and see them. A magical start to Christmas for all of us, not just the children."
