Portable North Pole is a fantastic online portal and app that allows you to create a video message from Santa!
We used this for the first time a couple of years ago for my then 7 and 4 year olds and they loved it. Last year it had been improved and we paid for an extended version for my 8 year old and got the free versions for my other 4 children, as I am not sure they would have sat through the extended version.
The triplets, who were 2.5, loved these videos; the fact that they could hear their names and see pictures of themselves was great and the free version was perfect for them.
Last year we also booked the Christmas eve phone call and will be doing the same this year for all my children.
I love Christmas and this really helps keeps the magic alive!
