This place is wonderful. Rare and beautiful Christmas decorations. Amazing toys, Fudge and time with Santa are an added plus! This place restored the best memories. It made me feel like a little kid again, a happy kid :)

Being an confirmed Grinch, I was much less that enthused about turning into this venue, but it took only a minute to convert me to a child again. Christmas and SANTA is REAL! With such a sensory overload as this place has, you cannot help but be transported back to your childhood. MERRY Christmas is everywhere! It covers the walls,... More

Tastes are allowed. One of the most popular is the peanut butter explosion. Unforgettable. Peanut butter fudge with chocolate brownie fudge.

We stopped by just to pick up a nice ornament as a souvenir. Found the staff to be friendly and kind. Bought some postcards to mail and get postmarked from the North Pole. They sell both cards and stamps in the shop and have several mail slots for mail delivery.

Kinda hard to get into the Christmas spirit in July. There were so many Christmas decorations to choose from plus all the Santa knic knacks. The best part was the reindeers outside. I was disappointed that they had closed the campground.....

This place is just fun. When we went Santa was "on vacation", but it was still fun to look through the shop and see the reindeer. It is a magical place for all.....

This is pretty much the definition of a tourist trap, but then again how many people can say that they have been to Santa's house in the North Pole? You can see reindeer up close and get some great Christmas decorations. The town is tiny and we struggled to find any nice food nearby so eat up before you arrive... More

I dropped over $100 here without even trying and I DON'T shop for souvenirs when I'm on vacation. However, it's totally cute and I would definitely go there again and I would recommend it to others.
