MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Dec. 5, 2011) - Thanks to Santa's elves, PNP-Portable North Pole is back online for its fourth year! Create and send a magical, free, personalized video from Santa Claus to anyone you want. Santa will dazzle children and entertain friends, parents, and colleagues. This year, Santa even has a brand new Elf Machine to help him answer this very important question - have you been Naughty or Nice?

"The Portable North Pole console has made over 20 million people of all ages smile, since it was launched. Users just have to answer a few questions and provide some photos, and Santa Claus will prepare a unique video message for their loved ones," says Alexandre Bérard, president of UGroupMedia and co-designer of PNP, along with Santa's Elves.

Personal videos can be created and viewed online for free during the holiday season, and then downloaded in high quality to be kept as keepsakes for $6.99. Santa Claus has other fun and fully personalized gifts in his e-shop as well: a handwritten letter, official PNP books, individualized puzzles, and even music and ringtones! These are all available for purchase in the PNP online store.

The PNP experience is now available on Android, iPhone, iPod and iPad. In addition to allowing people to create their personalized videos, mobile applications include an advent calendar, Christmas ring tones, secret videos from Santa, wish lists that flip to a practical shopping list for parents and even Santa's radar.

PNP has also launched a new Facebook application in order to help Santa Claus determine if you've been Naughty or Nice. It allows you to evaluate your friends online and compares them to others around the world! Santa then studies your precious information, and he openly tells you exactly what he thinks of the findings.
