A modern take on a timeless tradition!

Living away from family can be challenging during the holidays. Everyone wants to know what Genghis wants, what does the baby need, on and on. I usually field a million phone calls and emails from out of town family. This year, I had the chance to check out and the holiday lists have just become easy!

Once you log on, you will be able to create an account. From there you can add your children and even make a list for yourself. Then it is time to add to your list. is so easy your child can even add to their own list with a simple drag and drop. You can pick and chose from hundreds of the hottest toys, games, and books. No matter what is on your wish list, you are sure to find it.

Once the list is created you can share it with anyone you want. They even make it so you can share it on Facebook, email, Twitter, Tumblr, and Google+. One of the features I love about the site is you can set limits on the list. You can control the access of the account, set price limits on the lists and even pick items that are not visible to everyone.

You can also set up letters from Santa. They can be anything from asking them to set up a registry to reminding them to take out the trash to telling them if they do well on that spelling test they can add another item to their List.

In the end, the Parent is the decision maker on all items children add, so you can share registry items that exceed “Santa’s” budget, but also delete items that seem excessive or inappropriate. Parents can
also set up group lists for gifts that are shared across multiple children; like that Xbox 360 grandma is buying for the entire family. takes all the work out of making lists and sharing them with everyone. And they make it fun for children. What more could you ask for?
