Do you tell your kids that these characters exist? Why or why not?

It is part of the pretend magic that we enjoy.  We do not over emphasize them like some do but rather she sees them in different movies/shows and people representing them except for tooth fairy.  This past easter she got to take a picture with easter bunny AND meet cinderella on the same day.  She thanked EB in person for what she got in her basket.

 Nope, I really don't know why we never started doing them, I guess mostly because I never grew up being told it so it was something that never crossed our minds to start.

I could never manage to act like Santa existed. I could say "they say that on Christmas Eve...," but I have trouble keeping a straight face for that sort of stuff.

I tell my kids they exist as long as you believe in them. Needless to say, my kids have no doubts. It's part of the magic of childhood.

We are not Christians so obviously Santa and the bunny are non-starters. We also don't believe in not being untruthful so we told our son the truth. Nevertheless we agreed with him to "do" the Tooth Fairy and he thoroughly enjoyed the fun, although at our house the fairy always left a book with a crisp dollar bill as a bookmark!
