My girls are now old enough where they get excited about the holidays, especially Christmas. In addition to meeting Santa and sitting on his lap at the mall for a photo op, I have been looking online for fun ways for the girls to interact with Santa.  My search led me to the Portable North Pole site.

Have you heard of the Portable North Pole? I was surprised to learn that it has been around for around for awhile, as this year will mark its 7th holiday season. The Portable North Pole (PNP) lets parents create videos using personal information they share about the special child in their life, as well as include personal photos, to make for a truly memorable experience your child will love.

There are the video options to choose from, two of which come with a cost...

o   Free video: Available online and as a downloadable app (last year there was a $3.99 charge for this; this year it’s free).
o   Premium ($4): Significantly more personalized than the free version, plus it’s longer and there are three story lines vs. one in the free. It’s good for families with more than one child (you can do different story lines for each child) and it offers unlimited mobile viewing.
o   Holiday Pass ($9.99):  With this, you can create an unlimited number of premium videos and calls from Santa.

In addition to the three Portable North Pole video options ( the free video, the premium video, and the Holiday Pass), parents can also choose to send recorded phone calls to children, to get them even more excited about Santa's upcoming arrival.

We have tried out a handful of online sites that offer similar Santa videos, but I have to say that I am very impressed with the quality of the videos and love how they can be personalized to include personal photos of your child and their home, as well as the option to share and view these videos on your mobile devices.

In addition to being around for 7 years, this year marks a special milestone for PNP that is worth mentioning...100 million personalized Santa video message views since 2008.  I couldn't believe this when I read it, but after creating and watching the personalized videos I made for my girls, I can see why the Portable North Pole site has become so popular and is still around today.

Even if you have used the Portable North Pole site in the past, you will want to make a point to check it out this, there 7th year, as they have added some new features that will make using the enchanted portal that much easier and fun.  There is also a mobile version of the PNP that you can download through either the iTunes or Android  stores, that will allow you to create personalized video messages and calls on the go, right from your Apple and Android devices.

Who says you can't anything FREE?  When you download this FREE app to your iPhone or Android device you open up fun ways to interact with Santa through the Portable North Pole site.  When you register over at the PNP or download the app to your phone you can experience fun things like behind the scenes of what really goes on at Santa's village, fun coloring and puzzle pages to download and print out, cute holiday stories to share with your child, as well as the free video message from Santa.  

I love how these freebies give you a sense of what the Portable North Pole has to offer before you buy a more customized and longer video message from Santa.  Try saying that about other Santa video sites out there.

Other fun new features you will find when creating a personalized video from Santa for your child are that the Verdict Machine is now powered by a pedaling elf who'll keep your child engaged and entertained as they wait to see if they have made it on Santa's naughty or nice list, as well a new video that catches the elves getting into trouble while doing daily chores around the North Pole.

Not only did my girls get a kick out of the personalized videos and calls I created for them, but I have to admit I found myself believing a little more and getting excited about the holidays and all the magic that surrounds Santa and the North Pole.

This is one personalized experience that will become a staple in our household for years to come, as the girls will be able to find our if they have made Santa's "naughty" or "nice" list, while getting a glimpse into the life of Santa and his elves and see what the North Pole really looks like.  It is truly a magical place and one that is captured and shared so beautifully in these personalized videos from Santa. 

I hope you take the time this holiday season to check out the Portable North Pole, and create a customized video for that special child in your life.  And, don't forget to tell family and friends about the PNP, so that they can experience the wonder and excitement that the Portable North Pole Experience has to offer, including behind the scenes of Santa's village, the Verdict machine and how it runs, as well as seeing Santa address your child by name and talk to them about that special gift they hope to get and more.

With Christmas fast approaching, you don't want to delay in creating and sharing a truly one of a kind personalized video from Santa with your child.  So, head on over to the Portable North Pole ( today and get started.
