The Portable North Pole is back and it is better than ever!
These days it is hard to keep kids believing in the man with beard and big red suit, so if you want to create a special personalized memory for a precious child in your life — visit Portable North Pole to get a really nice greeting from Santa.
Santa will tell a story based on the information and pictures you provide. Whether it is the older kids on the bus spoiling it for the younger riders or the big kids down the block who don’t have younger siblings and think they are cool for spilling the beans about our friend from the North, parents have a difficult time trying preserve the idea that Santa really does exist. (Read More after the jump).
This product is very well done and the child receiving the video or phone call will BELIEVE that Santa is watching and prepping for a visit to his/her home on Christmas Eve! Since my oldest is getting to that age and not sure what to think, I took the opportunity to create a video for each of my 3 children ages 10, 7, and 5 to keep the idea of Santa still alive in my household.
Since my middle child Marisa is my only girl and I wanted to make her feel extra special, so I created The Personalized Premium Video package for her, which features exclusive video sequences, a personalized Christmas carol with her name, photos of her and a several surprises from Santa and his helpers! She will be surprised to view this in the next few weeks! As a bonus later in December, she will also receive a personalized Phone Call from Santa! Santa will pick up the phone and call Marisa directly to deliver his personalized message, which runs about two minutes – personalized messages can include a night-before-Christmas salutation or even a gentle warning to stay off the naughty list.
For each of my boys I chose to create The Portable North Pole’s Standard Santa’s Video which is the free version of the video. This version also includes photos and special information that I provided to let them have that special message from Santa and the keep them off the naughty list too. When choosing the free version, you are given the option of upgrading to the Premium version for $3.99, the Premium + version for $6.99 or the Premium ++ version for $20.99.
