What does the mall Santa give your kid?

My friend says its insane for the kids to get anything more than a coloring book from Santa. Apparently it varies from area to area so I wanted to see how my area compares. Santa at my mall gave every child a plush reindeer, a coloring book from Gymboree, crayons, and some 20% Gymboree coupons. No purchase necessary. My 1 year old was thrilled. She was scared of him, then he gave her a plushie and she was his friend.

Do you live near a big mall? Do many parents buy a photo? I'm curious what factors influence Santa's trinkets.

An anxiety attack. My boy is scared to death of anyone in a costume.

I didn't even know mall santas gave anything. FIL looks just like Santa and even gets ransoms jobs to dress like him every Christmas. So at least this year we will probably just have him dress up as him.
