Nothing will ever replace the magic of a kid sitting on Santa's lap and telling him what they want for Christmas, but modern technology is making it easier than ever to get on the phone with the Big Guy, and there's no waiting in line involved (he is magic after all!).

Free Phone Numbers

A number of companies offer free phone numbers that will put Santa on the line with your kids, including Vonage (1-700-CALL-SANTA), Free Conference Call (605-313-4000), and the "Santa Hotline" at 951-262-3062.

Smart Home Devices

Free Apps

For the more technologically inclined, there are a bunch of free apps on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

Message From Santa (iPhone) (Android), is just one example with a bunch of options, from text messaging the North Pole all the way to video chatting and other premium (i.e. paid) features.

Type "talk to Santa" in the search section on Google Play or the Apple App Store and you'll be rewarded with a plethora of both free and paid apps to get in touch with a clearly well connected Santa Claus!
