Christmas is a magical time for everyone particularly the little ones in our lives.
I love Christmas. I love holidays, sleeping in, the sunny days spent at the beach, spending time with family, buying and receiving presents, and of course all the delicious food!
But what I really love seeing is the joy on my kids faces on Christmas morning.
The Christmas magic really starts at the beginning of December when the Advent calendars get opened and the countdown begins. We also have an elf (on the shelf) called Mike that’s been visiting us for a few years now. Mike arrives on the first day of December each year and keeps on eye on the kids, reporting back to the North Pole whether they’ve been naughty or nice.
Another Christmas tradition in our house is messages from Santa using the Portable North Pole (PNP) Console. I have been using the PNP for a while and just love how much joy it brings to the kids, except for that year they all got a ‘try a bit harder’ instead of ‘your on the nice list’ (whoops!!). There were a few tears that year, but all was forgotten when Santa sent through another video message closer to Christmas assuring them all they were on the nice list!
Way back, when I first discovered the PNP, I was very impressed with the high quality and attention to detail of the video messages and of course the fact it’s FREE!
Yes that’s right FREE. You don’t get much for free these days but the PNP offers a free package which includes free videos messages from Santa, and a bonus birthday message! There are paid packages too, I’ve upgraded to the premium Magic Pass this year because it has some awesome new features and is only $12.99, which is not much to pay for some Christmas magic!
If you decide to upgrade to a premium package you can choose from the Video Pass ($9.99) or Magic Pass ($12.99/iOS and $12.99/Android). The Magic Pass has unlimited, premium Santa Videos and Calls for children, friends and family. It also has video stories read by Santa himself, and a Reaction Recorder to capture that special moment of loved ones seeing their Santa Video for the first time (with PNP 2016 mobile apps only). The Video Pass will give you unlimited access to all premium videos with advanced personalisations including the naughty or nice verdict and it also gives you access to an all new personalised Christmas Eve video.
The PNP website and App are really easy to use and you can create videos and calls quickly and easily.
You can create personalised video messages using the website or the free PNP mobile app which are then delivered directly from Santa in just a few minutes. PNP let’s you customise with different characteristics, elements of daily life, name’s of family and friends, several pictures and whether they’ve been doing good deeds (or not!).
Below are the video messages Lachlan and Jessica received from Santa.
My favourite new feature of the PNP App has to be the Reaction Recorder!
The Reaction Recorder allows you to record the moment your children, friends or family member watch their special video message. Both Lachlan and Jessica were over the moon watching their message and I just loved watching their reactions, which you can see below.
PNP also donates to hospitals around the world – including Australia.
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. In Australia, Portable North Pole supports the following hospitals: Mater Little Miracles, Brisbane; The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Sydney; The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation, Melbourne.
20% off for everyone, plus one lucky person will win a premium access PNP Magic Pass!
I am spreading the magic this Christmas by giving away a PNP Magic Pass to one lucky reader – find out how to enter at the end of this post. The Magic Pass will give you unlimited access to the PNP Console until October 2017. But if you would rather get cracking straight away I am giving everyone 20% off, just click here or the image below.
The PNP messages have kept the Christmas magic alive in our house with the kids hoping to stay on the nice list. The excitement is building towards Christmas and this is a wonderful way to make Christmas magical!
