My Thoughts:

I was recently sent a promo code to try out the Portable North Pole's personalized premium video, which also included a phone call from Santa.  "The Personalized Premium Video package, features exclusive video sequences, a personalized Christmas carol with your child or children’s names, photos of your children and a several surprises from Santa and his helpers!"   Personalizing this holiday video was a breeze and only took a few minutes.  And, once I was done and checked out, I instantly received an email with a direct link to the video to watch.  I watched the video first as I created it late in the evening the other night.  I was blown away at how realistic the video looked, and how Santa included personal information, including photos of your children and their age, to make the video more personal.  I couldn't wait until Savannah woke the next day to share the video that Santa had sent her. Even though she is only 2 1/2 yrs. old, she is beginning to understand Christmas and knows that Santa brings toys to good boys and girls.  

As soon as Santa appeared on the computer screen and said her name, Savannah's full attention was on the screen.  She couldn't stop smiling and saying, "Hi, Santa!"  And, once she saw her photo in the "Savannah" book, her eyes lit up and she yelled for her sister to come and look.  She couldn't believe that Santa had a photo of her.  Once the video, which lasts a few minutes, Savannah asked if she could watch it again.  So, after a few more times of viewing :-) Savannah was distracted by the phone ringing.  When I told her it was Daddy on the phone, she rushed over to the phone to tell Daddy that Santa was on the computer.  I had shared the video in the AM with him, so he knew what she was talking, and for a few minutes she babbled away about Santa, the elves and reindeer.  

As you can see, young children, even as young as two years old, will get a kick out of this video and other personalized Santa greetings.  As part of my review promo code package, I also get a personalized phone call from Santa.  I have already set this up (which was also quick and easy to do) and have  it scheduled for Christmas Eve.  I can't wait to see Savannah and Arabella's reactions when the phone rings and Santa is on the other end.   I will have to have the camera ready. :-)

So, if you are looking for a fun and unique way to share in the holidays with your little one, or even make those children who are on the fence about Santa believe a little bit more, these product offerings from The Portable North Pole, would make for a great gift to give.  From videos and phone calls, to personalized placements and coloring books, you are bound to find just the right gift for that child on Santa's Nice List. :-)
