Santa’s Back Online via the Portable North Pole

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Last year at Christmas time my wife and I treated our 3 year old to a very special message from Santa in the form of a personalized video email. The folks at UGroup Media have been hard at work and made some improvements this year. Not only does Santa know your kid’s name and location, he provides photographic evidence that he is always watching. You simply fill out a form and Santa makes sure your kids are on their best behavior all month. See the video below for a preview of the service.

You can choose the appropriate message based on age. There are categories for toddlers, children, and grown-ups. Watching my 4 year old light up when he saw photos of his T-ball team was definitely worth the effort. He is promising to work on his listening skills thanks to Santa. The 2 year old just beamed the whole way through his message. Hearing Santa say his name was more than enough to get him excited.

If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a shot. The video is really well done, and the personalization is very well done. Whether your kids have been naughty or nice, an email from Santa might just do them some good. If nothing else, it’s a great way to kick off the Christmas season.
