Hello everyone! I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the run up to the big day. Yes, we are certainly well and truly into the the festive season in fact as i’m writing this there is less than 2 weeks until Christmas day and although we’ve definitely been alot more organised this time around December seems to be flying by just as quickly as the rest of the year! Family traditions are in full swing, Christmas preparations are full steam ahead and excitement is building in anticipation for the 25th of December and the festivities ahead.
The tree is up (actually it has been since Late November teehee), Presents are being wrapped, we have Christmas movies on the tv and little one has posted her letter to Santa.
This year our lovely little lady has a much better understanding of Christmas, that it is a very special day we celebrate and of course all about Father Christmas! I’ve always loved this time of the year and since having our baby girl It has become more magical than I can put into words and I know Luke agrees. Kids really do make Christmas and it is so incredibly heart warming to see her excitement build as the day draws nearer.
Something I adore during the festive season is those family Christmas traditions. Those that we enjoyed throughout our childhood and have now introduced to our little one like visiting Santa’s grotto, Traditions that we have enjoyed for years and years like family festive trips and newer traditions like the now infamous Elf on The Shelf, it really is a treasured part of the season and creates such magical memories to look back on.
One thing we’ve really enjoyed, a newer tradition for us, that ignites so much excitement and signals Christmas is just around the corner is the personalised Portable North Pole video message from Santa!
Portable North Pole is an online platform where you can create, with the help from Santa and his trusty elves of course, absolutely incredible personalised videos and calls for your little ones and to send to your loved ones anywhere around the world.
You can discover Portable North Pole online and it is also available as an app for your mobiles and tablets which means you can take the magic with you wherever you go, share those amazing personalised creations and play the festive themed games available all on your mobile! You can download the PNP mobile app for free via the app store and Google play and will gain access to both the free and premium videos, exclusive games and it will synch with your very own account on the web.
It’s really easy to use, just provide St. Nick with some information and Portable North Pole will create a tailor made video or call that is truly magical. We were lucky enough to be gifted a magic pass and honestly, seeing our little girls face when Santa says her name and reveals she’s made the nice list is absolutely priceless and it doesn’t stop there! You can add in their most wanted gift, acheivements, even reassure them Santa knows where to leave the presents and add treasured photos to really make it super special as well as so much more.
If that wasn’t enough you even have the opportunity to record your child’s reaction, what an amazing memory to look back on in years to come and share those magical moments with your friends and family as you can download your creations in HD!
Portable North Pole launched in 2008 and since then has sent millions of messages and spread Christmas cheer all around the world. Infact more than 200 million video messages has been viewed since the launch. It adds even more magic to the festive season and as well as amazing the little ones it entertains us adults as well!
There is free content available and as well as the mentioned premium content. A video or magic pass will provide you with much more Santa screen time, more personalisation options and brilliant scenes from Santa’s village in the North Pole! Also by partnering with children’s hospitals all around the world PNP are giving back by donating 5% of every web transaction.
With the magic pass there is a huge variety of videos and calls to choose from! The Magic carousel was one that we really enjoyed and was extremely impressed with the detailed personalisation options and the quality of the video.
The thought that’s gone into making these incredible videos perfect for you and your loved ones is very admirable. Right down to how the recipients name is pronounced!
Other videos and calls available to create include Latest News On Your Behaviour, The Wrapping Machine, The Elves Magic Door and so much more! There’s even content for adults including marriage proposals!!! I can certainly see why it’s considered the number one Santa app and it’s definitely got the thumbs up from us! It’s also COPPA certified which means it’s completely kidsafe!
Our little lady loved her personalised video and it was an absolute joy to see her reaction. Magical.
