Portable North Pole – making a magical Christmas

imageI love Christmas and as soon as I had children I became even more of a Christmas crazy! It’s all about the magical moments, the times you look into their eyes and know they truly believe. I know it won’t last forever so I’m making the most of it.

This year I’ve used the Portable North Pole (PNP) website to create some magical moments for my five year old. It’s so easy to use, you can create a fantastic video customised for your child in a few minutes. You  just need a photo, a few details and the website does the rest.

I created two videos, one to show Arthur now and one for Christmas Eve. The quality is fantastic with Santa’s workshop, elves, snow covered chalets and a sense that Christmas really is something magical.


Santa talks directly to your child, sharing details, telling them whether they’ve made it on the good list and interacting with them to create something truly special. Arthur was mesmerised and you can now use the reaction recorder to capture those moments for ever. If he ever had any doubts about the big man, this video hepled him believe for just a little longer.

There are also Santa calls so your little ones can speak directly to th big man in the lead up to Christmas – a great one to have in the back pocket if their behaviour is less than angelic!. I made sure Santa asked Arthur to make sure he listened to his mummy and daddy, he he!


There are so many options from the personalised calls to a new video each week throughout December. You can also get a Santa-approved certificate for each of your videos. It’s great value and you can use it as much or as little as you like throughout December.

It’s definitely become part of our Christmas tradition and I can’t wait to show Arthur his Christmas Eve video while snuggled up on the sofa drinking hot chocolate.
