Sorry to drag up this old thread but I just wanted to update it...
My Santa that went to the UK, arrived in perfect condition about 3 weeks before Christmas. I was so worried when it went through customs and it was xrayed the doll beads in it might look like drugs...I watch too much "Customs" I think...lol. I emailed the customs place and they said it would be gone over with a drug dog, so not to worry.
Anyway it arrived without being opened, and my brother and his wife loved it to bits. His DD's even made a video of them opening it...it made me cry to watch my brother who I haven't seen in 35 years.
I gave the last 3 Santas to my oldest son's family, my oldest daughters family and the last I gave to my mum and dad. They all loved them very much, so I am stoked about that
OK this thread can go back into oblivion, I have finished with it now.
