PNP Portable North PoleIn the course of putting together my holiday coverage here at Rock Father HQ this year, despite all the cool toys and games that I've posted about, the biggest thing that is always looming in the back of my mind... influencing every move... is "The Magic of Christmas." While physical gifts are nice to have, for a kid, much of the holiday experience has to do with the vibe... the "magic," and I think that a lot of the time it's lost these days. One outfit that is helping to "Make Christmas Magic" is Portable North Pole. Would your little one(s) like to hear from Santa Claus himself during this season? They can... and here's a video that Kris Kringle sent to Rock Father HQ last week for my oldest daughter, Addie:

pnpletterPortable North Pole helps Santa get in touch with special letters, "Nice List" certificates, and even phone calls. If your little elf needs some encouragement (or has even been naughty), Santa can help there, too. In fact, we're expecting a call very soon with a reminder that Addie needs to be good at all times in order for Santa to stop here on Christmas. If she can do good for the next couple of weeks, Santa may check-in with another video on Christmas Eve as he makes his way to our home.

In the meantime, Addie has already received a letter from the big man, and rumor has it that Little Finley has a "Nice List" certificate on the way. If you'd like to hear from PNP Santa, here's just some of what he can do for you...
