Go to Portable North Pole to personalize a video message for your child straight from Santa at the North Pole. My son who is 2 1/2 LOVED this! You can really customize it - age, name, state, the toy they are asking for for Christmas, even a photo of your child on the naughty or nice list. The best part is (at least for me) is that Santa can talk about something your child has really been working on behavior wise. For us it was going to bed on time, but it could be playing nice with a sibling, arguing, My son REALLY listened when Santa told him he had to keep it the good work! Bed time has been a snap the past two nights.
You can also make some really funny messages for adults for Portable North Pole. Some times even grown-ups need a message from Santa!
The best part is this is totally free!
