A 2016 #HolidayWishGuide Pick! The Holiday Season has officially begun, and that means it's time to start thinking about securing the perfect gift for those special little ones in your life. When it comes to the Christmas season, there's plenty of "magic" for families regardless of age, but for the little ones, there's a window of opportunity to create magical experiences that really can only happen at certain time in their lives. While The Rock Daughters are just 4 and 7 as of this writing, my wife and I are already thinking ahead to when that magic might wear off, and we're always looking for ways to create those special experiences while we still can. With that in mind, I was pretty excited to learn of the Award-Winning North Pole Kids' Club when I was offered a set to review - a magical box that arrives direct from the "North Pole," complete with a custom welcome letter from Finley the Elf (Santa's trusted assistant, who shares a name with our youngest), and everything you need to certify your children as a Junior Elf.

Packed with fun holiday activities that need to be completed as part of the certification process, the Official Elf Kit comes with an authentic (super-soft) Elf Hat (available in Red & Green or Pink & White), a Magic Key that needs to be put out on Christmas Eve (it's how Santa enters houses like ours that have no fireplace), a 64-page, beautifully-illustrated handbook complete with the story of Finley's Christmas Adventure, an Official Membership Card and Elf Certificate, and a hands-on activity book.

Through fun activities like making magical reindeer food, baking cookies, or completing the occasional task at home (along with listening to their parents!), kids can learn how to help Santa prep for the big day. There's yearly tiers included to help extend the magic (five years of benchmarks!) in what is poised to become a new holiday tradition that families can enjoy for years to come.
