A Portable North Pole video message from Santa

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that every evening I’ve been setting up our elf, Buddy, in different positions around the house. So far he’s fought a Stormtrooper, packed my son’s lunch in Christmas paper and even decorated our Christmas tree with loo paper! Today he brought the children a very special video message from Father Christmas via PNP.

The most magical time of the year is here, and for many families worldwide, the Christmas holiday wouldn’t be complete without personalised video messages from Santa to the kids and kids-at-heart by Portable North Pole (PNP). The No 1 mobile Santa app is considered a cherished, modern tradition with more than 125 million videos viewed worldwide. PNP lets you create and send adorable videos and calls online or with the free mobile app. New this year – a special Reaction Recorder (mobile app only) that lets you capture the moment of joy and surprise when Santa Claus reveals whether your child is on his “naughty” or “nice” list – creating a cherished keepsake for parents.

It only takes a few minutes to craft a magical video from Santa that your child, friends and family members will remember forever. Simply visit the PNP website or download the mobile app on iOS and Android. Create a video by entering details such as name, age and the gift your loved one is hoping for, and upload favourite pictures.

I created two different videos last night and left a note for the children to find. It said there was a special message for them as well as something for Mummy and Daddy!  Yep, we were not left out and received a lovely Magic Bauble Surprise which contained some lovely chocolate coins and a PNP code.

After breakfast we all sat round and watched the messages. The children loved them and totally believed them as they were full of photos and special details that only Father Christmas could know.

PNP offers free videos for everyone, with the option to upgrade to a premium package, including the Video Pass (£6.99) or Magic Pass (£9.99). Both packages provide enchanting premium video storylines to choose from, with each offering five or more minutes of footage featuring several adorable experiences to watch, such as visiting with the elves as they work on your Big Book or see them in busy with the reindeer on Christmas Eve, as well as the Reaction Recorder (mobile app only). They also let you create an unlimited number of premium videos, and come with a special “Santa’s Coming” video to watch on Christmas Eve and birthday messages. The Magic Pass also includes 20 wonderful holiday messages from Santa that kids can listen to on the phone, and four story time videos read by Santa himself, which are made available each week leading up to Christmas.

To help spread a little extra cheer to those who may need it the most, PNP donates five percent of all online sales proceeds to more than 40 children’s hospitals around the world. More than $300,000 has been donated on behalf of PNP’s fans since 2012.
