Visit HGTV’s Santa HQ at Freehold Raceway Mall #SantaHQ

 

It is that magical time of year again, where malls across the country are packed with shoppers, including kids and parents of all ages. One of the main draws of shopping at the mall, beyond the shopping, is to see the big man himself Santa. This year HG TV brings you a very special Santa’s HQ, where visitors travel to the North Pole and explore the big man’s abode. The visit starts interestingly enough, with an app download. There really is an app for everything. The app is called Elf-Ray vision, and should be downloaded before you get to the mall.

 

This app gives the user a special insight into the working of the elves. Point your phone at the walls, and see what the elves have been up to. Once activated, the gears show elves working hard behind the scenes or getting ready for the big day. These scenes are dispersed at various places all along your trek, so keep an eye out. The first step is the “Elfie Selfie” in Santa‘s workshop where, after snapping your pic as an elf, you star in your own holiday video (that also features some HGTV favorite stars) that you can share with with your loved one as well- just email it to yourself on the tablet.

Christmas time is upon us, and this time of year is not only stressful for parents but also for kids.  The all seeing big guy in a red and white suit is especially watchful right now, so best behavior is mandatory!  But what if this best behavior isn’t working out?  Instead of an upswing, is there a quick down swing in attitude and attentiveness?

Why not reaffirm the good behavior with a Santa phone call and video?  It’s cute and fun.

Check out Portable North Pole for some quality personalized items for Christmas, including their wonderful Premium Video.  The video features Santa and his elves as they go through your child’s year and gives them a naughty or nice recommendation as well as some personal details about what they have tried hard on this year and their achievements of the last 12 months.  Little Man really loved the recap of the year and the personalized pictures included in the video.  His favorite part was when Santa saw his artwork and complemented him on it.  The Little Guy had a smile bigger then the sun.  The video is downloadable or stream-able, so even when the internet goes down the video can still be seen.  I would definitely suggest saving it, no one likes a choppy Santa.  I personally love how they ask for a proper pronunciation of your child’s name.  With the number of unique names around currently, it is nice to see this special touch.
