Last year we had so many customers ask us if we carried the Elf on the Shelf. This year we gave in to your requests and we now have the elves in stock!
For those of you who aren't familiar with this trend though, The Elf on the Shelf is a great tradition to start with your kids. The 8-inch elf doll (above) comes with a 28-page hardcover illustrated book that explains the story that is based on a tradition the book's author, Carol Aebersold, began with her family in the 1970s.
Once the elf gets home, the children can name their elf and then the elf gets to work. Elf on the Shelf shows up each morning (many times in a different place!) and spends the day watching and listening…gathering information to carry back to Santa at the North Pole each night. Children love the daily hide-and-seek game of finding where in the house the elf decides to spend the day. Children want to be on their very best behavior when the elf is in the house because it’s their job to help Santa determine who has been naughty and who has been nice!
There are rules of course. The children are not, under any circumstance, allowed to touch or move the elf. And even though the elf can’t talk to the children, they are allowed to talk to the elf…to tell the elf their secrets, Christmas wishes and maybe even some confessions!
I think this is such a fun tradition to start with young children…older children too...or husbands? Hmmm…maybe Seth would be extra nice (do the laundry, the dusting, the dishes, etc.) if I brought an elf on the shelf home with me! LOL!
Santa only sent us a limited supply of elves so be sure to come in and get yours while they last! They're already selling great.
Your elf is waiting for you!
