How to Make a Toy

Hi, I'm Santa. This year I'm starting making toys early, since last year I waited until February and I almost didn't make enough toys. Since Mrs. Claus failed to iron my work overalls yesterday I'm going to have to wear my suit which I usually only wear on Christmas Eve nights. Oh, well. To work, now! First, I'll make a teddy bear. Oh, which drawer had the fabrics in it again? Ah, here it is! Now, where are the scissors? Honey, where did you put the scissors? Oh, right, I left them on the work table! Alright. First cut the ears, the head, and the arms. Next cut the waist, the legs, and the feet. O.K., now to stuff him. Oh, frostbite, where did I put it? Ah, thank goodness. Okay, he's all stuffed. Now I need the sewing machine. Argh, where could it be? This is ridiculous. Thank you, Merry. This is going to be a looooooooooooooong year.


  1. Dear Santa, Are you making a Batman Geotrax set for Louis next? Or will you pick that up on your way? If you don't have one, that's OK. He will love anything you bring.
    Love, Rita
    P.S. My niece Julia has been a really good girl this year.

  2. Will he be writing to me anytime soon to tell me his preferences? ;)

  3. He is the boy who has written to you several times and seen you in person. He's the cute one who's always talking about trains...
