We were sent a code for the Portable North Pole application in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts, opinions and photographs are our own.
The mobile application and website Portable North Pole is a prime example of why I love the evolution of technology. With just a couple of clicks of a mouse, you can help Santa gather all the information he needs to create a super personalised video message or phone call.
Currently, you can get one personalised message from Santa completely free.
However, I’d suggest upgrading your account to either the Magic Pass or the Ultimate Pass to make the most of what this fantastic software has to offer.
We currently have the Magic Pass and have been able to use it to create multiple magical videos for both Frankie & Matilda.
As a Magic Pass holder, we’ve access to all the premium videos and the free videos (plus phone calls) meaning there are lots of chances for the kids to speak to and interact with Santa.
Being 2, Matilda pretty much only understood that the guy on the screen was Santa. However, at 6 Frankie fully understood every word Santa was saying and took on board the fact that Santa had noticed him not brushing his teeth as well as he could (something we, in fact, was able to input into the personalisation software).
We played the video on the laptop rather than on the mobile application and therefore didn’t have access to the complementary reaction recorder – an added piece of kit that we think is AMAZING! We did, however, manage to film some of Frankie’s reaction to Santa ourselves.
With thanks to The Portable North Pole for allowing us to try the software complimentary in return for this honest review.
