Review: Portable North Pole {2015}

For the last two years I have raved about Portable North Pole to anyone that will listen and it has very much become part of our Christmas routine. If you haven’t heard of Portable North Pole, and you have children in your life, then this is definitely something you should start using this festive season.


Portable North Pole lets you create videos and phone calls from Santa and all his friends at the North Pole. The calls and videos really help add to the Christmas magic and they’re something LP has loved over the last couple of years.

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 have got up to this year and even a photo of your home so Santa knows where to visit on Christmas Eve.


The phone calls are just as exciting, having Santa ring your actual phone and talk to your child and there are both Christmas Eve and general festive calls and videos to really build the excitement in the run up to Christmas.

Portable North Pole have a lot of different packages that you can sign up. The most comprehensive package costs just £9.99 and lets you create an unlimited number of videos and phone calls for multiple children. Now that Little Man is at an age where he understands Christmas this package suits us perfectly and is money well spent I think. It also lets you archive videos so you can save them and look back on them year after year.

Videos cost from £3.99 but there is a free mini version although it is a lot more limited than the premium videos. You can also buy an unlimited call or video pass for a slightly higher fee. With all payments made to Portable North Pole 5% is donated to a children’s charity too.

For us, Portable North Pole is a big part of Christmas. We watch the videos in the run up to Christmas and have a special Christmas Eve video too – as well as Christmas Eve phone calls with Father Christmas. It’s one of those things that you start doing and then will never stop and I don’t mind admitting that Hubby and I love this tradition almost as much as the kids.


Portable North Pole have give me a discount code to get 20% off their services – just use code BLG20PNP at checkout.

  1. We have been using this for the last 2 years. It’s brilliant. I bought the premium version this year to look at last year’s one but forgot then that we actually downloaded it. You don’t seem to get that option this year. It’s so much better this year though because Matthew understands for the first time. I can’t wait to show him the video. I have this post in my draft a while now. Really need to publish it soon.
