Review – Portable North Pole Magic Pass 2016

I love the PNP console, I can’t wait for it every year to surprise the children and see their excitement and amazed faces.  This creates such magic with the lead up to Christmas.  My children receive a video a few weeks before Christmas then a phone call is received closer to Christmas.  It makes them think about being good and not ending up on the naughty list.


The 2016 Christmas countdown is on and what better way to celebrate than with a message from Santa himself. The Portable North Pole (PNP) website and mobile app is back once again to delight children and family members across the world for the festivities, with amazing new features and videos for 2016!

Portable North Pole is one of the world’s most beloved Christmas family entertainment brands, dedicated to bringing the magic of Santa into homes with personalised video and call messages from the big guy himself! Each message is carefully crafted to engage, surprise and keep children in suspense and they have become a modern tradition in millions of homes worldwide at Christmas.

There is a new feature this year ‘reaction recorder’ (only available on the mobile version) which is a lovely way of capturing that initial reaction of your children, which you can keep for years to come.

There are a great variety of videos with the addition of Christmas eve and birthday video.

The videos can be edited, saved and shared across social media or by email and are completely personalised to fit in with your child’s age and abilities. You can add photos of the child, their achievements or anything that they have got up to this year and even a photo of your home so Santa knows where to visit on Christmas Eve.

With all the choice of videos and also telephone calls, this is a great value package.

The package also has a new toy and gift collection exclusive to John Lewis.
