Santa's Helper - aka Harold the Giraffe

We all know that Santa needs a little help at the shopping malls and all the community parades at this time of year right? Well, Harold the Giraffe needs a little help too. Let your Harold personality shine by being Harold at one of the many Christmas parades around the Auckland region over the weeks leading up to the big day. Harold will always have an adult helper to navigate around the urban jungle!


Ideally you will be of a reasonable height to be Harold - approx min 168cm to a max of 195cm. You will need to have reasonable fitness as this may require walking in the costume during the parade (or you may be chauffeured as well). It can get a little hot wearing the costume. Enthusiasm and a big personality to match Harold's is a must! Harold doesn't talk but loves to wave.

A Police background check is required for this role.

Time commitment:

3-4 hours on the day (which includes assembly prior to each parade, and up to 1 hour generally on the parade.
