A Christmas world that is born from children’s pictures.
Draw a picture of Santa Claus on a piece of paper, then, as if by magic he will appear in a town right in front of your eyes!
Children can also draw other parts of the town that Santa Claus will come to visit, such as, cars, buildings etc. The Christmas town that is created depends on what pictures the children choose to draw. Each childs picture enters into the town along with the pictures drawn by other children, and the drawings move around and come to life in the town. Children can also decorate the town itself too. As the different pictures enter the town, different scenes evolve. You can also enjoy interacting with the pictures: touch a car, for instance, and it will speed up!

Draw and color in your favorite object: Santa Claus, buildings, fire trucks, etc.
Scan the colored drawing.
Watch the drawing come to life and move in the three-dimensional town.
