    Is it not Santy checking that his gift is suitable for the little fella? – On second look, of course its not Santy, far too thin, the red and white pattern is all wrong for Santy, and Santy would not need to check that the bike is suitable, of course it is.

    No idea so, but a great photo anyway.
