Interactive Story-Time & Photo-Op Experience with Santa
Santa’s Storytime is a unique interactive Meet and Greet experience with Santa Claus and his elves. Participants will pre-register online for a dedicated 45-minute time slot, which includes an interactive story-time & photo-op experience with Santa using your own cameras and smart phones.
Participants will also have the opportunity during their visit to send letters to the North Pole using Santa’s mailbox and receive personalized correspondence back from one of Santa’s trusted elves.
Gerrard Square will transform into Santa’s workshop, complete with decorated Christmas trees, lit garland, Nutcrackers, Reindeer, Snowmen, festive music and of course Santa and his trusted Elves.
All donations and a portion of the proceeds will benefit SickKids Foundation. The funds raised through this event will be allocated to the Possibilities Fund, supporting the highest priority needs at SickKids.

At SickKids, we try our best to help patients and families feel as welcome and comfortable as they would in their own home. Donations of new toys, electronics, crafts, books, and entertainment help us bring joy and comfort to children throughout their hospital stay or appointment.
A hospital doesn’t have to “feel” like a hospital. The generous donations enhance the patient and family experience – they may be used in our playrooms, as rewards after completing a test or procedure, and/or as gift for a patient’s birthday or other special milestone.
We accept financial donations, as well as donations of brand-new items like toys, books, electronics and gift cards. We also accept donations of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and donations in recognition of our SickKids staff.
With your support, you’re helping us create a safe, positive environment where we can continue to make a difference in the lives of the brave children and families that we serve.
