Company Summary

Make Believe Labs enables high-quality live one-on-one video experiences with the characters people know and love. Our first app, Hello Santa, offers live one-on-one video calls with Santa Claus. Our competitors are making hundreds of millions placing Santa's in the malls, and we can make at least as much by bringing Santa online.
