You may be asking yourself, well what is Portable North Pole, well allow me to enlighten you. Portable North Pole or PNP is an online service where you can create Christmas videos for your little one. This is what it is in a nutshell but boy oh boy it is so much more! We went for the full experience and we were not disappointed.
A few days ago through the post arrived a parcel for Alyssa and inside was the most gorgeous Baby Elf called a Do-Good Elf ( which you can grab from John Lewis) and it was very different from the mischievous Elf on the Shelf’s you can get. She/He had a big plastic face with huge eyes and a big smile and then a soft body with movable limbs and was dressed in gorgeous cotton and corduroy clothing. With it came a lovely passport and stickers which basically explains that it is a baby Elf that needs to be taught by your child how to do things and get stickers for doing so and your child also gets to name them – we called ours “Elfie” (original I know) and she already feels like a member of the family!
The other thing that arrived with Elfie was a code for Portable North Pole so I could make a personalised Santa Message to Alyssa from Santa and his Elves at the North Pole. All I needed to do was head to the site, sign up and enter my code and I was given access immediately to choose what kind of video I wanted to make and then the personalisation options too.
Once I had completed all the steps I then had to wait for the video to be built – Portable North Pole emailed me a link easily with twenty minutes and then I was ready to show Alyssa. I told her that she had a special message from Santa and the Elves and that we needed to watch it. We grabbed Elfie and sat down to watch on my laptop (though you could watch on a desktop, phone or tablet.) Here is how my wonderful little toddler reacted….
As you can see from our reaction cam video she was completely awestruck! We have visited Santa already last weekend so she has an idea who he is now and she was so surprised to see him talking to her – especially when he called her by her name! There were little snippets which included the names of her cousins and other family members and she was happiest when she saw her face appear on the screen – I think that was the true wow moment for her.
