‘Twas the month before Christmas and all through my house, both my kidlets were stirring wondering “when the heck will Santa be here?!”
I think the kidlets were ready for the holiday season to start the moment they took off their costumes and ate their last piece of candy! I’ll admit, I couldn’t wait for it either! Christmastime my favorite time of year and I am totally into the celebration!
I mail out my holiday cards early enough that it’s the first card most of my friends get for the season. I put up our tree and decorations the day after Thanksgiving and keep them out all the way thru New Year’s. I buy crazy amounts of holiday wrapping paper and spend hours debating what bows, ribbons and tags I’ll use for each gift. I even take the kidlets on weekly trips around our neighborhood to check out all the pretty lights and Christmas displays.
So of course I wanted to get a jump-start on this holiday season, so I picked up some Northpole items for the kidlets. Northpole is a new line of keepsake toys, gifts and party items from Hallmark that are inspired by Santa’s magical home and are available now at Walmart.
It’s a fun and whimsical collection that will put a smile on your face and get your family into the holiday spirit!
My favorite item is the Northpole Communicator. It’s a magical machine that lets you directly dial the North Pole! Each day, between December 1st thru the 24th, you turn the communicator’s knob and push the button to have an actual two-way conversation with some of Santa’s elves or even Santa himself!
The kidlets got to make a test call – to make sure it worked properly 😉 – and as you can see from the picture, they were pretty excited to be chatting with the elves!
Since we love to read together nightly as a family, I also picked up a copy of the book, Once Upon a Northpole Christmas. Have you or your kids ever wonder what really happens in Northpole? This hard-covered book is filled with a sneak peek into the secrets of Northpole magic and the heartwarming tale of the Christmas-that-almost-wasn’t!
The book came with a special Find me Santa! Snowflake. All you have to do it write your name and hang this lighted snowflake in a window, on a doorknob or wherever you are so that Santa can find you, wherever you may be on Christmas!
The Northpole by Hallmark collection includes a number of other items such as Snowball, a polar bear plush doll and book, giftable mugs, Bake Like An Elf baking tools & recipe cards and a fun family game called Rooftop Drop. Prices for items range from $2.97 up to $29.99.
Some items such as the Once Upon a Northpole Christmas/Find Me Santa! Snowflake and the Snowball doll/book combos are exclusively available at Walmart.
Now it’s your turn to share. How does your family get into the holiday or Christmastime spirit?
