About This Item
It's almost Christmas - and with it comes Elf on the Shelf , sent by Santa Claus to check on children across the country. For those not in the loop, the festive toy began as a children's book in the US in , telling the story of how Santa sends a "scout" elf to check whether your children are being "naughty or nice". Every day in December, once the kids are in bed, parents place the elf in different locations in the house so he pops up somewhere new when they wake up in the morning. Some parents also opt to leave small presents alongside the elf, giving the impression it is rewarding their well behaved offspring with gifts from Santa. The tradition has gone viral in America with parents taking to Pinterest to post pictures and share ideas of the unusual places they put the puppet in each morning. Children can chat to the elf but can't touch him otherwise he will 'disappear forever' according to the book. The authors are keen that the elves are not "bought" but "adopted", therefore calling the retail outlets selling the toys "adoption centres".
