The Santa Clothes Doll is a unique and adorable way for your family to countdown to Christmas. Children are understandably excited about Christmas and can't wait for Santa to bring presents. They can drive their parents crazy with their constantly repeated question, "How many days until Christmas?" This doll will give them a way to count the days down on their own.
You will get an 18" Santa doll, 12 items of clothing, a 6' clothesline and clothespins; all in a keepsake box. You hang all of the clothes on the clothesline and, starting on December 12, kids can take turns dressing him with one clothing item per day. When all clothing items have been used, it's Christmas Eve!
The Santa Clothes Doll was created by Kevin Pierce.
Here is his story explaining what inspired him to create this doll:
"In 1966, my parents had their hands full during the chaotic holiday season, with 5 kids asking, “How many more days?” over and over. Their solution? A family tradition that we’ve kept for nearly 50 years. A handmade Santa doll became our countdown calendar. With items of clothing strung across the fireplace mantel, every evening after dinner, one of us would take a turn dressing Santa. One night it might be a sock, a belt or his jacket. The number of items left told us exactly how many more days until Santa visited our house. The tradition continued, even after we all grew up and moved out. Every December, Santa waited for us in his sleigh by the fireplace, and every December when we visited, we continued to take turns getting him dressed. When the grandkids arrived, they became part of the family tradition. In 2017, I made one for my own family, and once I saw him next to our fireplace and the smiles of joy and wonder on my daughters’ faces, I knew it was time to share this wonderful tradition with the rest of the world. Staying true to my parents’ vision, Santa’s friendly spirit shines through in this new design. Give him a hug and help him get ready for the big day! He’ll appreciate it and your family will too. -- Kevin A. Pierce, Founder, 320 Toys LLC"
