Santa Chip made a great addition to my son Mike’s birthday. I will give him an A+ seeing I am a retired teacher.
Santa chip was great! The kids and adults loved him. He told them cute stories and answered their questions. So easy to work with. Thank you!!
Response from Santa Chip:
Thanks! Worked out great walking the neighborhood!
We have been so happy with Santa Chip! Guests love him and he is so easy to work with. Would highly recommend.
Santa Chip was amazing !!!! We had an event at our farm and people loved him - kind and friendly and an amazing Santa. We are looking forward to our other events with him.
Santa was wonderful. He made everyone once again believe in Santa. It was amazing
Santa Chip was great!!!!! Very engaging with the familes and kids!
Santa Chip was the best. On time and all the children were so happy. He read, told stories, and spoke to each child. I would recommend him if you need a real Santa.
Santa Chip added the "magic touch" to our Christmas party. We had 17 kids, mostly boys, ranging from ages 18 months to 14, and Santa Chip really engaged with them giving a great lesson on reindeer antlers (with an actual antler!) and the physics of sleigh flying. The kids loved it! He was great about family photos and handing out presents and made all the kids feel extra special and comfortable. Santa Chip made my party planning very easy: he was professional, on time and very accessible via text/phone in the days leading up to the party. For our next Christmas party, we hope Santa Chip visits us again!
We held a Pet Photos with Santa event to benefit the Clinton Police k9 unit and Santa Chip was a hit! We photographed over 50 dogs with him and had a huge turnout for the event. He arrived early, helped with set up and was very patient with all the unruly dogs! I would highly recommend Santa Chip and I hope we can use him again!
He's amazing .. Highlight recommended. Santa Chip did an amazing job in our Christmas party. The kids loved him.. He answered all their questions. When it was time for pictures he made it so special for everyone.
Response from Santa Chip:
Thank you! Look forward to helping your family continue building your Christmas traditions.
Everyone went nuts over him. Thanks for an awesome event!
Santa Chip was great, friendly with kids and answered all their questions.
He showed up 30 minutes before his scheduled time and he made my daughters Birthday party very special. Looks like the real Santa! All kids were so Happy.
We will definitely hire him again!
Thank you so much Santa Chip for what you are doing for all kids!
Santa Chip was perfect for our kids Christmas party! He was sincere and funny and made sure he spent one on one time with every kid. He told the kids that all he really wanted was for all of them to be kind. He really got everyone into the Christmas spirit 🎅
Santa Chip was on time and professional. He was excellent with the children taking time to speak to each one and hand out gifts. When it came time to do photos he made every effort to encourage participation and ensure great pictures. He will definately be my first call or recomendation in the future...
My family was so surprised and all wanted to know where I found such an authentic looking and entertaining Santa! Every adult said, "wow! He was awesome!" Our two youngest whispered to their mom " mom, I think he's the real Santa?, ," Mom is he the real Santa?". Very very enjoyable. We never felt rushed. Santa Chip arrived early but not before calling me to make sure it was ok. He helped give out 20 presents and posed with each guest and then group photos. Told jokes, told the kids about all of his keys, asked the kids to share memories. A night to remember!
Response from Santa Chip:
Thanks so much! Family was fun, even the family dog got into the holiday spirit!

would definitely recommend and we will keep him in mind for our next holiday party
Thank you so much Santa Chip, the children at our corporate holiday party enjoyed him so much. We would recommend 100% and will be using Santa Chip for all our future parties!
Santa Chip was excellent !! Arrived on time and was great with the children, and the adults. Santa Chip gave the gifts that we purchased for the children, and then mingled and took pictures with everyone.
Response from Santa Chip:
Thanks for the great review! This was a fun mix of employees, family and business partners, yet I could not tell who was "family"... everyone were enjoying themselves, makes it easier for me. Look forward to working with you in the future. Merry Christmas!
Our 6-year old son's birthday was a success because of our visit from this authentic pirate! His attire was perfect. He captured the kids imagination and most importantly, their attention, while he lead them through our backyard in search of his buried treasure in his treasure chest. After the kids dug it up, they split the loot which included chocolate coins. His presence gave our party the structure we needed. Whew!
We had Captain Hains at our library during our "Pirate Training Camp" week, and he did a great job giving insight into a pirate's life! The kids loved looking for treasure around the program room, and the photo ops at the end were a hit with parents as well! Thanks so much Captain Hains!
Santa Chip was amazing!! The children AND adults loved him... will use him again!!
Santa showed up around the scheduled time and he walked through the dining room semi full of guest and so that wasn't the 5 star experience, maybe arriving a little early so he could have a game plan.
Event went well, caught santa leaning on the wall sometimes, (not that everyone payed atteintikn to detail but I did) he did a good job overall it was just the small details. Would hiring him again but would have to iron some wrinkles ahead of time. Merry Christmas
We hired Santa Chip for a small two family holiday get together. We had five children, age 4-10. Santa Chip interacted with the children. He shared some fun reindeer facts. He handed out presents. He listened to Christmas requests. He posed for LOTS of pictures. He read a story to the children. Overall a great experience. We hope to utilize Santa Chip again in the future.
