Last year, a just 3-year-old Monkey, didn’t really understand what Christmas was all about. I think he thought it was some sort of weird extension to his birthday. He did sort of understand that Father Christmas was someone rather important. As I mentioned in my Santa Sprint App review recently, I was introduced to the magic of Portable North Pole by a friend last year.
She told me about these wonderful personalised message videos just before Christmas, so I made a free one up really quickly and played it to Monkey on Christmas Eve last year. The magic of Portable North Pole had arrived, Monkey was spellbound. If you’ve not come across this magical world before then take a second to watch this little trailer – your children will love you for it – trust me!
When I was offered the chance to make Monkey a Premium video this year I jumped at the chance. He really understands the concept of Christmas this year. For £2.99 you get a 6 minute video to keep, with additional scenes. You decide where Santa is when he talks to your child – we’ve decided that Father Christmas should be repairing his sleigh. I’ve been able to include 5 photos in the video, including one of Monkey with Brewster, our cat. Monkey will also get a special video message from Father Christmas on Christmas Eve. I am rather excited about the whole prospect, and of seeing a 4 year old Monkey’s reaction. The video’s are really easy to put together, I did it in a matter of minutes.
It’s also worth noting that PNP donate 5% of the premium video charge to Children’s Hospitals – a nice touch.
The magic of Portable North Pole has a whole host of goodies available, we’re waiting for a special delivery with a personalised letter from Father Christmas and a Colouring Book. I also have a sneaking feeling Monkey might be getting a surprise telephone call soon.
I have some great news for you my readers! You too can enjoy the magic of Portable North Pole and enjoy a special offer – 20% off digital products in the PNP store valid until 1st January 2014. Use code BLG20BKP
Have a wonderful Christmas 🙂
