    Yeah kinda stupid. I wish they could do better than a little computer animation... which by the way looks like it's done by some teenager. :rolleyes:

    It's for kids, why would it matter? Besides, I'd rather they spend $ on protecting me rather than on computer animation.

    Heh.. you think kids enjoy watching some boring guy talking while they watch flashy images of santa on a computer screen? I know I wouldn't have ever enjoyed such a thing even if I was 3 years old.

    My seven and eight year old sisters did. In fact, they were pestering me all day to see it, like they did last year, and the year before.

    Kids love it...

    and I think it's great that someone does it.

    Merry Christmas! Or, happy holidays...or, have a great new year!

    With children becoming more computer savy that animation won't work too much longer, enjoy for fun! :p

    Ha, it will always work at some point, just the age of the kids getting excited about will be getting younger.

    D :D

    We're all so cynical. Kids are kids, just not for as long as before.
