The magic of Christmas is stronger than ever in our house. Both of the children inherited my love of the festive season. For us, it really is the most wonderful time of the year! However, I’m incredibly consious of the fact that Mia is getting older. In a few years, she’ll no longer believe. With that in mind, I’m determined to make this Christmas special, you never know when the penny will drop! When we were offered the opportunity to review Portable North Pole I jumped at the chance. I’d heard lots of good things about PNP and knew the children would be mesmerised.
Portable North Pole offers amazing access to videos and calls directly from Santa. We were very kindly gifted a Magic Pass which gave us unlimited access to all premium videos and calls for an unlimited number of children as well as a whole host of extras. Features available with the Magic Pass include the reaction recorder, 1080 HD downloads of all videos, a printable nice list certificate and so much more.
Setting up a personalised video and call for each of the children was a breeze. I simply downloaded the free Portable North Pole app from the App Store, set up an account and chose a video option to personalise. I chose the ‘made just for kids’ option as this is one of the options that offers the reaction recorder. Once the videos were created, I just had to find the right moment to show them both. Their reactions were worth the wait.
There is nothing quite like the utter astonishment that spreads across a childs face when they truly believe in the magic of Christmas. That’s exactly what I witnessed when the children watched their personalised videos. Theo looked at me in disbelief and said ‘Mummy! It’s Santa! He knows my name!’, it really was wonderful. Mia’s face shone with glee, despite being 8, she still finds it all enchanting. She may be adamant that she’s ‘too old’ for a lot of things, but she’s definitely not ‘too old’ for Santa just yet. That’s what is brilliant about Portable North Pole, it isn’t just for kids, it’s for adults too!
