Use: Teaches you how to summon this companion.
This is one of four BoU Winter Veil pets that drops at random from the [Gaily Wrapped Present]. You must be level 20+ to loot this item. This item appears under the Winter Veil tree in Ironforge (alliance) or Orgrimmar (horde) on and after December 25th through January 1st, but the [Jingling Bell] can often be found at auction year-round.
As of Patch 4.3, the Winter Reindeer no longer requires a snowball to summon. It will also "dress down" during the off season. Its appearance will not be as festive until the Winter Veil holiday.
This reindeer is the tiny counterpart of the festive holiday mount you see everyone riding during Winter Veil. It would be neat if you could ride this little guy too. But unless you've got a bag of Noggenfogger Elixirs, you'd probably just end up with a stained bottom and a very sad reindeer…
