Elf on the Shelf® (Boy - Dark)
3 years & up. Year after year, children and adults alike are baffled by the mystery of how Santa really knows who's been naughty or nice. After much urging by the elves and Mrs. Claus, Santa has allowed his biggest secret to be revealed in "The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition." Touted as the best thing since "The Night Before Christmas", this gift set includes a brown skin, brown-eyed North Pole boy pixie-elf, hardbound children's book and keepsake box. Children can register their elf online and receive a special response from Santa.
Behind the Tradition:
This classic tradition began when Santa Claus wanted to keep better track of the naughty and nice list. Scout elves are sent to adoption centers to sleep until families read "TheElf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition" story together. After the family is done reading the story, families give the elf an individual name and adopt the elf on the web. Families can grant any name they want, but the name is required in order for the Christmas magic to be bestowed upon the elf. It's like welcoming a new member of the family!
Once the elf arrives at a family's home, he or she watches to see who is being good and who is being bad. In order for the elf to do the job efficiently, he or she hides in different spots of the house each day! The elf then travels to the North Pole when the family is asleep to give a daily report to Santa. These daily reports help keep the naughty and nice list as accurate as possible before each Christmas Eve.
It's important to not touch your elf, or else the magic will be lost.
Bring this timeless classic home for Christmas each year! Great for everyone of all ages.
