Christmas Elf The Elf on the Shelf is a family Christmas tradition that continues to grow in popularity each year. Millions of households bring out their elf from Thanksgiving to Christmas Eve.
Parents and kids alike enjoy the fun and games behind this elf and his special mission to fly to the North Pole to report to Santa Claus every night. Find out if you should bring home an elf for your family in this in-depth review of the Elf on the Shelf Christmas tradition.
Why Do We Have an Elf for Christmas?
Elf usually arrives on December 1st, sent on a special mission from the North Pole and instructed by Santa Claus to keep an eye on behaviour in the lead up to Christmas. Your Elf toy comes with a complete Christmas Elf Magical Reward Kit box to help you create fun and magic, while making sure your little ones believe. We will send your Elf and Magical Reward Kit box out once ordered. It’s up to you to get your Christmas Elf out and set up on December 1st, or whenever you think best.
How Does the Christmas Elf Tradition Work?
Each night mum, dad, carer, teacher, or whoever is in charge of the Elf sets up the mischief. Our Christmas Elves have been known to spill breakfast cereal, play with toys, climb up the Christmas tree, leave footprints across the hall, scatter underwear around the house, paint mum’s nails with funny patterns, wrap things up with loo roll and much worse!
What is in My Christmas Elf Kit?
Your Christmas Elf Toy arrives in a box with a welcome letter, explaining Elf’s role in your home. Elf brings a behaviour chart, a sheet of stickers, Elf Report Cards and two Nice List Certificates that can be used to reward good behaviour. There is also Beware of the Elf signs for your door in case for any overnight mischief, plus a Thank You postcard you can use in January to continue the magic.
What Happens to Elf After Christmas?
An Elf for Christmas is just for Christmas. On Christmas Eve you can pack away Elf in his box until next year. Or as you tell the children – Elves need to go back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve to join their friends in sweeping up the leftover wrapping paper and start the toymaking for next year!
