    Really? Why?

    I reckon my kids would hate it too. They would find it really freaky. Same with fairy doors. DD2 just wouldn't cope.

    (Sorry not trying to derail just curious)

    Default Elf on a shelf 2015

    I admit, I'm not keen on the elf on the shelf doll faces (they remind me of Chuckie!!) but I loved the idea, so I bought hand made felt elves instead. Mine love them and the funny things they do. I may delete later as they are identifying, but here are mine making their entrance this year.



    I bought a boy and girl for each kid as like the idea of them being family heirlooms that they can use with their children.

    How long have these been around? Sorry to sound completely naive, but I've never heard of Elf on the Shelf before!?! First I heard of them was the other day.

I think it's hilarious, if he wants to call him Rosie, then Rosie it is!

    Wandering what do people do when they go away for a night? Do you take Elfie with you or leave it at home? We have a night at a hotel but worried DS will see me touching it/packing away...
    Definitely take him. We went away for a week in December last year and I ran back inside after putting the kids in the car to grab our elf so they wouldn't know. Ds1 loved it when he woke the next morning to find our elf had found us. We're going to Melbourne for Christmas this year and I'll do the same thing again.

    My sil had to send her elf back many years ago as it freaked the life out of my then 5yo (i think) nephew. I was a little worried dd was going to freak out but she thinks our elf is the funniest little thing (phew!)

    I think they've only really taken off here in the last couple of years I
    but have been in the states for ages. It's been at least 5yrs that I've known of them having family in the US. I've been hanging out since to have a child old enough to play along!

    These elves would be perfect for this concept.
