Newly Designed Digital Holiday Experience Coming this Fall – With Content for Every Member of the Family
BOCA RATON, Fla., May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Grom Social Enterprises, Inc.’s (NASDAQ: GROM), Curiosity Ink Media, its pipeline for original intellectual property (IP) development and content creation, today confirmed the fall return of Santa.com, the company’s digital online hub, where kids and adults can shop and experience the joys of the holiday season in a one-stop, modern update of the classic department store that pulls out all the stops when celebrating the merriest time of year.
The return of Santa.com this year and the addition of ecommerce (delayed last year due to global supply chain concerns) place Grom and Curiosity squarely in the booming e-tail business and gives the company a chance to participate in the explosive and growing holiday retail market, projected to top $1 trillion this year. Last year, consumer holiday spending climbed an unprecedented 16.1% over 2020 and forecasts for 2022 anticipate ecommerce sales to increase 15.5% to nearly $235.86 billion in holiday sales. *
Designed to bring users the fun and excitement of Christmas through content aimed at easing the stress and maximizing the overall enjoyment of the season, the newly-designed Santa.com unwraps sleighfuls of DIY holiday experiences for visitors who are looking to deliver magic to their families and friends. With easy to navigate features for gift giving, entertaining, decorating as well as games and a digital North Pole experience, Santa.com has something for everyone. For kids, Santa.com will offer a special place to build wish lists and engage with the magical fun of the North Pole.
Visitors to Santa.com will have access to a treasure trove of holiday-themed content, all of which underscores the magic of the season. From Mrs. Claus’s favorite recipes to classic traditions, hosting tips to setting the tone through curated holiday playlists, the site blends fresh editorial content, eye-catching graphics and original video entertainment.
In collaboration with publishing partner Dynamite Entertainment, Curiosity will also be launching four holiday books: How The North Pole Works, Snow Boy, The Adventures of Herbert Henry, Santa’s Secret Society and Baldwin’s Big Christmas Delivery. Additionally, the company is in development on an original, animated musical holiday feature film, inspired by annual classics like “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Elf.” The special will focus on Santa’s efforts to modernize his North Pole workshop with the help of some technical upgrades.
