Mali Phoenix Williams-Cody, aged 3, visited the Cleveland Centre in Middlesborough with her mum to meet Santa.
Mali is not deaf but she struggles to communicate with words.
Mali’s Mum told Santa “Sorry, she can’t talk very well”
Santa asks “Can she sign at all?” to which her mum replied “Yes”.
Santa then tapped Mali on the arm to get her attention and began to use sign language to talk with Mali, asking her what she’d like for Christmas. Her reaction is priceless and her face lights up as she communicates with Santa.

What a wonderful Santa this man is.
A Cleveland Centre spokesman told a local newspaper: ‘We believe the Cleveland Centre Santa is real and this truly shows the magic and spirit of Christmas, just like Miracle on 34th Street.”
Apparently Mali would like a scooter for Christmas, I am sure Santa will make sure she gets one.
