Some examples of games that let players work in Santa's workshop include Santa's Workshop at GirlGames.com and Santa's Workshop at Candystand.com. Despite having the same name, both games feature two completely different styles of gameplay.

They can only make four mistakes before the game ends. They have to choose the right toy, the correct color to paint the toy and the right wrapping paper to put on the gift. Players use a computer mouse to make choices and manufacture the correct toys.
