If The ELF on the SHELF isn’t one of the most adorable things we’ve ever seen, we don’t know adorable!
The ELF on the SHELF could also be called a ready-made tradition just waiting for a family! Now is the perfect time to make this wonderful addition to your household as said elf on the shelf usually likes to make his first appearance just after Thanksgiving.
Our boxed set combines a sweet, impish elf (who is waiting for you to name him!) with a book that tells his story – how during the day he watches over the youngsters and at night travels to visit Santa himself at the North Pole and fill the jolly guy in on the children’s activities. (Just how do you think Santa keeps track of those names on that naughty/nice list?)
Each morning, the elf returns home and with a little assistance from an adult (the kids don’t have to know that part!) hides in a new location, just waiting to be found. Can’t you just imagine your little ones running through the house to find their special elf’s new hiding place each morning?
The ELF on the SHELF started as one’s family’s personal tradition; over the years, new rules were introduced that are now part of the beautifully illustrated story book. While children can talk to the elf as much as they want, they’re not allowed to touch him – you don’t want to interfere with the magic, after all. And the first elf’s first adult found that just his presence helped excited children to better control themselves. After all, the elf is always watching!
Don’t let another Christmas holiday go by without your own personal elf; give one a new home and introduce this creative tradition in your house. You’re guaranteed to build precious memories year after year.
