You Need to Be Rich to Visit Santa at Harrods

Well, I knew Harrods was expensive and they like to appear exclusive. They certainly are spreading the word this year - kids will only get to see Santa in his grotto if

1) they have received an invitation to buy the ยฃ20 ticket

2) they hold a 2nd tier membership, where theyโ€™ve spent a minimum of ยฃ2k a year

(this relates to the parents, of course)

With the decline of high street shopping, letโ€™s see how well they do this xmas

ho ho ho!

Doubt the kids care what Santa they visit, this is more about the parents bragging rights.

I suspect the kids Harrods are welcoming already go to private schools, so if anything, Harrods ought to charge more - start as they mean to go on

I'm amazed Harrods is still open. My mum went once and bought their version of a tote bag as that was cheapest thing to buy as a gift with their logo on. I won't go in there. Over priced. More money than sense comes to mind regarding the price of santa.

I can honestly say I don't remember going to see Santa when I was little, yet I know my parents took me as there are lots of photos. I don't think kids care what Santa they see. I was always more interested in seeing the reindeers!

Wow. My daughters will never be shopping there. Even if I was rich my aim would be to stay rich not dwindle it all on overpriced toys lol. My daughters have a lot of toys but to be honest they don't even play with most of them! I've learnt that kids don't need a lot of toys, they need a lot of attention. They enjoy attention so much more ๐Ÿ™‚

I look after my grandson on Tuesdays during school holidays. He is a bit older now but his favourite day used to be building a tent with old sheets (even those used for DIY), over my two washing lines. Placing another on the grass covered with the lounge cushions and a little side table. We would then play with cheap water pistols running around the tent, have a picnic lunch inside and then do some learning, disguised as fun, on his tablet or reading books. Lovely memories which I hope he will take into adulthood.

Aww that's lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm sure he will remember that, it sounds like he had a lot of fun. My daughter loves building tents then playing or having picnics in them. Even when she's overtired and miserable tent building always cheers her up ๐Ÿ’œ
