Sittercity to provide children across the country a FREE virtual sitting with Mr. Kringle and his friends.

“Just as so many children around the world have been learning new technologies over the last several months, I have been perfecting my Zoom skills,” said Mr. Kringle. “Thanks to the help of all my friends and the North Pole CTO, kids can virtually share their holiday wishes with me."

Sittercity, America’s first online source for in-home care, today announced a partnership with Mr. Kringle & Company to provide children across the country a FREE virtual sitting with Mr. Kringle and his friends. As a pioneer in child care, Sittercity introduced virtual sitting early on in the COVID-19 pandemic to give parents a much-needed break. The company has now teamed up with Mr. Kringle directly to spread virtual holiday joy before the crunch of Santa’s busy season.

Beginning on Monday, November 30, 2020, families can sign up for a 50-minute virtual sitting session with the jolliest sitters of all - Santa and his friends. Children from all over the country will join Mr. Kringle and his band of merrymakers in various activities - snow-making science experiment, toy inventing, games, a sneak peek into Santa’s top secret toy lab, and more!

“Visiting Santa at your local mall and sharing what’s on your wishlist is a holiday tradition for many, one that has been disrupted by the pandemic,” said Elizabeth Harz, Sittercity CEO. “We want to help keep the magic of the holidays alive and technology enables us to stay connected from a distance. Virtual sitting with Santa is a wonderful option for children and gives parents a short break to accomplish necessary tasks during these uncertain times.”

“Just as so many children around the world have been learning new technologies over the last several months, I have been perfecting my Zoom skills,” said Mr. Kringle. “Thanks to the help of all my friends and the North Pole CTO, kids can virtually share their holiday wishes with me. We know it’s not the same as an in-person visit, but we can’t wait to see if you’ve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.”

Sittercity’s free virtual sittings with Santa will begin on Monday, November 30 and continue through December 18, 2020. Families can book a 50-minute session between 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. EST, with up to eight households per session. The login you receive upon registration is only good for one device, so please limit participation in the event to your immediate household to ensure the best experience for all families involved. To schedule a virtual sitting spot with Santa, families can visit: sittercity.com/santa.
