      OMG! Just when you think you've heard it all! Pay 25 to have some random old bloke leave a message on your kid's mobile - a little bit disturbing if you ask me! however, if you must, surely there are ways of doing this sort of thing free of charge! Not only that, 25 (even with 20% off) is enough money to buy someone a pretty decent extra present, which I'm pretty sure a child would appreciate a lot more than hearing an old geezer heavy breathing down their phone! I'm all for parents coming up with inventive ideas to make Christmas more "magic" for their kids - This ain't it - It's just wrong! Not to mention 25 for up to a minute - that's down right extortionate...25p maybe!

      Just had a quick look around the net and the first thing I spotted was a link to a site called portable north pole - It's very American, but it offers a free message from "santa", if you want to personalise it, then that will cost 2.99, and for more fancy options, you can have a video, or a series of videos and messages up right up to Christmas for no more than 9.99! It's not my cup of tea at all, I'd have to say, however, it's very professional, not creepy, and dare I say quite magical! A vast, vast improvement upon paying 25 for a washed up shopping channel presenter to leave a dodgy sounding message along with graphics that a five year old child could have created!

      Considering all the sordid revelations and allegations over the last few years regarding TV presenters and DJs and underage children, I really wouldn't feel comfortable giving out my kids' phone numbers and personal details to one!

      Plus 25 for a minute's phone call? Probably be cheaper (and less dodgy) to let the kids call a premium rate chatline number for a minute instead!

      I wouldn't give Mark Ryse, the horrid little man, 25p. He sounds more like Santas hungry for fame Elf than Father Christmas himself.
