Santa Claus is 6'3" and once ran the 40 in 4.41 seconds ... 'cause 7x Pro Bowler Andre Johnson just hooked a bunch of underprivileged kids up with almost $20,000 worth of toys.
Johnson invited a group of kids to a Houston, Texas Toys "R" Us store ... and gave them 80 seconds (he wore #80 as a Texan) and a shopping cart to grab WHATEVER THEY WANTED!!
Johnson's rep tells TMZ Sports once all the toys and electronics were added up ... the bill came to roughly $20,000.
BTW -- this is the 9th year Andre's hosted the Christmas shopping spree. He was joined by the Texans cheerleaders!
The kids also got a gaming console -- along with games -- in addition to whatever they grabbed off the shelves.
