If you looking for a great place to take your little one for a last minute jaunt on Santa's lap consider the Santa at The Shops at 900 N. Michigan Ave. This dude is for real!! He's about as close to the big man as you can get!
Decked out in a traditional Santa suit and very real beard, he sits upon his red throne, listening to the Christmas wishes of boys and girls. And boy does he listen. He takes his time with each child, playing the part of Santa himself. Once the picture is taken, each child receives a collectible stuffed animal as a gift.
I took my son here for his first Christmas with Santa photo. Not only was Santa professional, he was personable and cheery. My 5 month old grabbed and pulled his beard and even gave us a "ho-ho-ho".
I highly recommend this Santa. The set up is beautiful and the price is reasonable. He's there until Christmas Eve, of course. For more information visit http://www.shop900.com/events/
