PNP Portable North Pole

Portable North Pole is one of the neatest “Santa Claus” inventions that I have seen in a long time! If your child believes in Santa, they will love to hear directly from the big man himself! A video will be sent to your e-mail to play to your child.

Simply disclose your child’s first name, an issue you are working on with them (i.e. temper tantrums, etc.), upload a few pictures and you’re set! Santa will address your child by name, address the issue they are having and warn them that they are on the naughty list! BUT, there is hope. There is still time to correct their behavior before the BIG day!
