Santa may be far away in the chilly climes of the North Pole, but the Telecom Santa Line will ensure that any kid (young or old) will be able to get in touch with the big fella over the next few weeks.

For the 19th year in a row, anyone can call Santa for free, on 0800 222 222, to let him know what's on their wish list.

According to Telecom Chief Marketing Officer, Jason Paris, 2011 saw plenty of requests for Playstations, iPods, trampolines and more curiously, an Airbus A380, an engagement ring and even a baby.

People wanting to chat to Santa can call him from any New Zealand landline, mobile or pay phone around the country. There will also be dedicated booths set up at the Telecom Christmas tree or for anyone who would rather send him their wish online; Santa's elves will be collecting wishes from 1 December on
