Portable North Pole Our Experiences

We head to the Portable North Pole website every year so when a chance came to review it I was very happy to come onboard.  Its such an enchanting experience and although we tend to usually go for the free options I wondered how the paid for experience differed.  It is one of the big highlights for my boys in the run up to Christmas so if spending a few extra pounds made it even more special then I thought that was one investment worth making.

I have heard from some parents with children slowly turning into non-believers that the video actually recaptured the magic of Christmas and renewed their belief again!  I want my two to keep being captivated by Christmas for as long as possible, it’s such a wonderful time of year.  Portable North Pole has become one of our family traditions; it can also help with tricky behaviour.  You can add to the video what you would like your child to work on, like listening, being quieter around the house and so on, hearing Santa Claus tell them sinks in much better than their actual parent mentioning it!


I think I would spend the extra to have the enhanced options from the site; my own personal favourite is the phone call from Santa.  The look of astonishment on my boys faces when they took their respective calls was fantastic to see.  Hearing Santa speak to them by name and then congratulate them for their hard work, they both did well in their school Christmas shows so I thought that option was very apt, was extraordinary.  You could hear the pair of them answering Santa back.  The call is a recording but the way Santa speaks leaves space for him to be involved in the conversation too, neither of them had a clue it was anything but Santa live talking to them and them sweetly talking back. 

The phone calls can also focus on behaviour, encouraging your children or asking them to try harder.  I think its handy having Santa on your side as the next couple of weeks can get a little silly!  I plan on using the phone call again to give me a helping hand.  If they think Santa is falling out of favour with their behaviour they will soon fall back into line again!  

There are 22 storylines for the phone calls and if it had not been for my review I might have missed that section entirely.  It costs £3.99 for three calls in my opinion this is a great price for a unique memory!  How often does a child get a personal call from Santa!  I would however suggest buying the holiday pass at £7.49 so you can have calls and video’s a plenty this holiday season.
