Ages 4 to 8 years. Prepare yourself for a story that will change the hassle of Christmas Eve to an enjoyable and anticipated event for children of all ages. Puddinhead is a very special elf sent by Santa on Christmas Eve to make sure that all children are in bed early enough so he can complete his job of getting all the children's presents delivered. Without ever being seen, Puddinhead delivers pajamas at the children's doorstep as a signal to get into bed quickly because Santa is on his way. Once the children experience a visit from this mysterious character they will wait in anticipation for his return each year. Puddinhead's visit creates fun for the whole family -- children wait, watch, and sometimes calculate his arrival, while parents, grandparents, and older siblings use their cunning and creativity in preparation for the event.
