Polar Pen Pal brings an exciting and engaging way for children of all ages to learn about and have a real connection with the Arctic! Now your child can have the joy of having monthly mail ALL THE WAY FROM THE GREAT WHITE NORTH personally addressed to them, and inside they will delight to find a postcard that shares with them details of northern life and Inuit culture.
