Santa Claus is coming to town and Malin Akerman, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Tori Spelling, Dean McDermott, Tiffani Thiessen and Ian Ziering were on hand to welcome him at the Second Annual Santa's Secret Workshop at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.
Akerman was "eager to learn as much from the sponsors as possible about the best baby products on the market," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She even brought a notebook!"
Gellar brought her daughter Charlotte for some quality time, which they spent making crafts and posing for photos with Santa at the event, which was presented by Bill Horn and Scout Masterson.
Spelling and McDermott made their first public appearance with all four children – Liam, Stella, Hattie and newborn Finn – but it was more like a reunion for the cast of the original 90210 with Spelling, Thiessen and Ziering all in attendance.
"Tiffani's daughter Harper saw Ian and ran over to him before sitting down to decorate a holiday photo frame at one of the craft tables," says another guest at the event, which benefitted L.A. Family Housing.
Ziering's daughter, Mia, also got hands-on at the crafts table. "Ian snapped tons of photos of his daughter. It was really cute. He's a super hands-on dad," says the guest.

It's a girl for Ian Ziering!
The actor's wife Erin delivered daughter Mia Loren Ziering at 10:09 p.m. Monday in Los Angeles, PEOPLE confirms. Weighing in at 7 lbs., 6 oz., the baby girl's name begins with 'M' in honor of Ian's late mother Micki, a source tells PEOPLE.
"Well, it's official, I'm a dad!," the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star, 47, wrote on his Facebook page.
"As I sit holding Mia, Erin sleeps the most beautiful sleep. My thoughts race with visions of a brighter future, only made possible by what happens today... or, last night! God bless us all."

It's officially 90210 Day – so how is Ian Ziering (aka Steve Sanders) celebrating?
"I'm enjoying an extended honeymoon with my wife, Erin, in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico," he tells PEOPLE. "Being married, I don't know how to describe it. It's very comfortable when you find the right person. It all comes together beautifully."
The date, however, didn't escape Ziering, 46, who first met his Beverly Hills, 90210 castmates at Aaron Spelling's house in April 1990.
"About six or seven months ago, I had my entire cast together," he says. "I wanted to put together a reunion special to run on this day and the CW dropped the ball."

Ahead of the Valentine's Day rush, Beverly Hills, 90210's Ian Ziering has changed his Facebook status from being "in a relationship" to "engaged."
"Her name is Erin Kristine Ludwig," Ziering, 45, tells PEOPLE in an e-mail. "She's a nurse, we're planning a spring wedding and we've been together since Labor Day 09."
This will be the second marriage for Ziering, who played Steve on the hit show in the '90s and was a Dancing with the Stars celebrity dancer (with Cheryl Burke) on its fourth season. A 1997 first marriage, to model-actress Nikki Schieler Ziering, ended in divorce in 2002.

Ian Ziering of Dancing With the Stars is opening up about his struggles with dyslexia.
"My career actually started in the second grade as class clown," says Ziering, 44. "That's no joke. I was always making people laugh, and it was really to mask a learning disability. ... When it came time for me to read out loud, I would crack jokes or create a diversion."
It was then that he was diagnosed with dyslexia, and for four years he worked to learn to read.
"I would work through flash cards ... to help condition me out of seeing letters and numbers backwards and upside-down," he says. "I finally trained my eyes to look at the top left corner of the page rather then the bottom right side of the page."
