Every year our kids receive a personalized Santa video. This has been a long time Christmas tradition for us. Kind of a way to bring a little more Santa magic into the house.
The Portable North Pole offers a variety of videos, scripts, and options to personalize your Santa interaction. This is especially important if you have more than one child. In a matter of 5 minutes, you can create a video that your child will love.
What will you need to create your video? Their system will prompt you to enter a birth date. In the video Santa will reference the child’s age. You will select the best pronunciation for your child’s name (so Santa says it right). Then you can upload a photo (or multiple for the upgraded videos). Santa will show the photos and talk about events associated with them. You can also select something behavior related that they have been working on. The upgraded videos allow you to have Santa determine whether they are on the naughty or nice list.
My confession? We always create some funny videos the adults, too. They have an “adult only” version of the video that can be quite comical with the right combination.
The cost? There are a couple of free video options. The calls are upgrades. You can unlock all of the videos for $8.99. If you purchase their Magic Pass, it will unlock all videos and call scripts. It only costs $12.99. They also offer a bonus of a “Reaction Recorder” with the paid version when using their app.
Bonus Materials: Their website has a lot of fun extras! There are Christmas coloring pages you can download, recipes, and videos recorded by Santa. They have a gallery of images that include Santa, the elves, and reindeer. There are even stories to read with your child (the Magic Pass includes video story times with Santa).
We have so much fun with this tradition that I wanted to share it with you.
