The web of LIES gets thicker and thicker 😫 Do people think less of me that when I was a kid and found out, I told my little brother?

@bentossell Haha lol Aw Ben you ok over there...I was kicked out of most birthday parties as a child because my meltdowns actually involved me yelling to unsuspecting kids that Santa wasn't real.

@nicholassheriff haha! well in that context, I'm fine - are you ok? 😜

@bentossell but it's so much fun as a parent! Ha. Our oldest is 5 this year and is completely caught up in the magic. Wayyyy more fun on this side of things.

@prsarahevans @bentossell exactly Sarah :D and it's important to keep a childs imagination going at the age where they are believing the impossible possible. Imagination is more important than knowledge!

@bentossell @prsarahevans we see it in tech even today, the inability to imagine things in a transformative way, not without having knowledge...but to be able to see something no one else sees and think of things no one else has. when you think of what those simple, and silly platforms that celebrate this would look like you end up with silly discussions that could actually end up empowering a next generation. We're planning something much larger than this for kids/parents...Talking Santa is just the beginning!

@nicholassheriff @bentossell we just tried it out. Kiddo was in shock I think. He assumed it was a video voicemail since he couldn't really reply to him. But was very excited. I snapped it all with my Spectacles. ;)

@nicholassheriff @bentossell I like watching how he interprets things without prompting from me. Thanks for making our season a little more magical. Can't wait to see what's next. If you need kid beta testers, let me know. ;)

This is hilarious. Once you open the app, it imitates a Facetime call with Santa. Must-download for parents and cool uncles/aunts. 😊

@nicholassheriff I showed it to my daughter, she's 2 years old and speak french - she loved it! She kept asking where was Santa and when he'll call again :)

@odroz Aww :D So happy to hear this Olivier :D we're going to be supporting multiple languages soon btw we're currently working on a new update to have additional videos and the ability to also get text messages from Santa ( and the ability to schedule calls / for bed time and so on ).
