Portable North Pole

The countdown to Christmas is upon us and, for most families, the holiday season wouldn’t be complete without children and loved ones receiving their very own, personalised video greeting from Santa Claus and peak into the enchanting North Pole village. Now in its 11th year with more than 200 million personalised videos messages viewed worldwide, Portable North Pole (PNP) is an adored, modern tradition that brings the magic of Christmas to life by letting you easily create and send adorable videos and calls online or with the free mobile app.

New for 2018 – An amazing Behaviour Update Video surprises children, who are hoping to be on Santa’s good list, with a personalised video from the big guy himself, only to have him ring them directly on the phone during the video to chat about their behaviour and they see it all happening live in the video. Also new, the Video Call enables children to see and chat with Santa on-screen. In addition, until November 20th, the new First Name Guarantee lets parents ensure the correct pronunciation for their child’s name is available for personalising videos.

How PNP Videos Work
You simply share a few details (name, age, gift wanted, etc.) and upload favorite pictures at or through the free mobile iOS or Android app. In just moments, an amazing, personalised, cinematic video where Santa talks to your child (or the young-at-heart) from his magical village in the North Pole is ready to send.

Available in English, Spanish, French and Italian, PNP offers free video options for kids and grown-ups in late November. In addition, premium video/call packages, ranging from £2.99 to£3.99., come with unlimited access to multiple, unique, extended Premium videos with extra personalisation options and more. With the mobile app, the special Reaction Recorder uses your phone’s camera to capture the moment of joy and surprise when Santa Claus reveals whether your child is on his “naughty or nice” list – creating a cherished keepsake for parents.
