Northpole was really funny especially since little Kevin is constantly telling his mom (played by Tiffani Thiessen, who I was so excited to see in a movie) all about his elf-friend, Clementine (played by Bailee Madison) and she just thinks he has a very active imagination. Clementine is an Elf that is trying to find a way to keep her hometown from being destroyed, the only way it can stay powered up is with the magic of Christmas.
We all now the magic of Christmas is good cheer, laughter and the belief in Santa and each other. But what happens when everyone is too busy for that? As the town snowflake begins to fade she is the only one left to save the town and she steals Santa’s reindeer to do it.
This is definitely a great family movie to watch during the holidays to share with about the magic of the Northpole and Santa. We got a lot of laughs out of it especially during the snowball scene and the attempted snowball fight. BabyGirl’s favorite part was the family scenes like baking cookies because it makes you feel good. SoccerBoy loved when the mom had to explain it was HER child getting in trouble. Eeek! I remember all too well when he did something similar to me. Can Clementine convince a single mom and her son that she needs their help to save her own town? It’s a race against time and the snowflakes are quickly fading.
Currently Northpole is being played on the Hallmark channel but if you aren’t lucky enough to have that channel or catch it this cute movie was just released on DVD. We loved this movie so much that it inspired us to have a Northpole themed Party, which I will be including on this blog during the week. The best part of this movie is you see it everywhere you go, especially at Walmart. Each time when we’ve went shopping the kids would ask me to pick something up, the first time it was the Northpole themed plastic cups. I grabbed one for each and used a permanent marker to put their names on it. This last time we got Rooftop drop so we can play it at our party. I can’t wait to share all that with you. Stay tuned and please if you have seen the movie let me know what you think of it.
