The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition Keepsake Box Gift Set
Have you ever wandered how Santa would know who is naughty or nice?

The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is the very special tool that helps Santa know who to put on the Naughty and Nice list. This interactive holiday hide-and-seek tradition is perfect for children and families of all ages. The tradition begins when Santa sends his scout elves out to Elf Adoption Centers. Waiting for their families to bring them home, these patient elves hibernate until their family reads The Elf on the Shelf, gives their elf a very special name, and registers their adoption online. Once named, each scout elf will receive its Christmas magic and becomes part of the family’s Christmas each and every year.

The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition
Scout elves are eyes and ears of Santa Claus

Although they cannot be touched, or else they may lose their magic, the elf will always listen and relay messages back to Santa. Taking in all the day-to-day activities around the house, no good deed goes unnoticed; these scout elves take their job seriously.

Before the family awakes each morning, their special scout elf will fly back to their home from the North Pole. However, since these elves like to play games, don’t expect to find them in the same spot! While some like to hide in the freezer (probably because it reminds them of the North Pole) and others prefer to sit on the fireplace mantle or hang from the chandelier, these elves love to play hide-and-seek with their families.

    This is a tradition that will carry on for generations!

    HOW IT WORKS:
    The kit comes with an elf doll and a book. The book explains that Santa has sent an elf to watch over the children and the elf reports back to Santa each night. The kids get to decide the name for the elf together – this is a touch decision! You read through the book with your child, it explains all the rules, then each night you move the elf to a new spot. One of the rules is that the children cannot touch him – this is a great rule because although he’s a sturdy doll, I think he might get loved out much too quickly if they were allowed! The author was so thoughtful to think of all these helpful rules.

    Rules:
    * The children cannot touch the elf or he will lose his magic
    * The elf can listen to what the children tell him, but cannot talk back, that’s Santa’s law.
    * The elf flies back to the North Pole each night and tells Santa what he has seen – when he comes back he goes to a new spot in the house.

    The kids start searching for the elf immediately when they wake up! Knowing Santa is watching has definitely motivated them to be a behave a bit better! This cute little tradition makes the Christmas season more fun. It’s a very special tradition in our house. I love that the book has an old fashioned feel to it, the illustrations are wonderful.

    CONS:
    * Your children will ask you every night from Halloween to Thankgiving when the elf is coming back!
    * You have to remember to move the elf every night! Sometimes this is a bit of a challenge for us. 🙂 However, our elf does sometimes just get comfy in the spot he’s in, so he must have decided to come back to the same spot.

    So much fun!, November 24, 2006

    My kids just received this Thanksgiving day as a gift and I am now ordering them for every child I know. It is such a cute idea. Santa sends the elf to watch the children and then the elf reports to Santa every night and comes back to a different spot in the house. My kids wake up with a running start to see who can find the elf first. The kids must name the elf and they really enjoyed that as well. It is such a nice tradition to help make the Christmas Season even more fun and special. I know it will be with our family for a very long time.

    Elf on the Shelf – VS – Christopher Pop-In-Kins, September 18, 2013

    This review is from: The Elf on the Shelf A Christmas Tradition with Blue Eyed North Pole (Hardcover)

    I have a 3-year-old and considered entering the insanity that is “Elf on a Shelf.” In reading reviews, I discovered an alternative: “Christopher Pop-In-Kins” Our local library had a complete gift set of both mischievous elf stories and companion elves. Here is a comparison..

    THE STORIES ARE INCREDIBLY SIMILAR
    I am utterly stunned by the similarities in the two stories. In fact, I am amazed that the author of the “Christopher” book (written in 1985) hasn’t sued the “Elf” author (written in 2005) for plagiarism.
    * Both elves have been sent by Santa to keep an eye on their assigned child/children and report back to Santa
    * Both elves relocate within their assigned home each evening
    * Both elves are not to be touched by the children in the home
    * Consequences for touching either elf is the same–he/she will have to go back to Santa for awhile
    * Both elves are to return to Santa on Christmas eve
    * Size of books are almost identical

    “CHRISTOPHER POP-IN-KINS”
    * Illustrations are more vivid with a lot of primary colors
    * The story is narrative in fashion
    * The book spends most of the time explaining why Santa sent him to your home
    (Christopher was sad and wanted to see the children who the elves had been making toys for, so Santa decided to use Christopher as a spy, of sorts.)

    “ELF ON A SHELF”
    * Illustrations are more subdued and resemble dry water colors with a lot of peach/orange/rust
    * The story is told in a rhyming fashion
    * The book spends most of the time telling the reader about the actual process of hiding each day

    COMPARING THE ELF FIGURES
    * For something that is to be a family heirloom and last year after year, both elves are remarkably lacking in substance, quality and design. If I saw these sold as Christmas decorations in a store, I would never even consider buying either one. It’s a shame because elves and Christmas figures can be so cute.
    * Both elves are of passible quality
    * “Elf” is about 10-inches tall and quite lanky; “Christopher is about 8-inches tall, but much more substantial
    * Both elves arms and legs are very very thin and wiry
    * “Elf” has very long, very thin legs; “Christopher” has shorter thin legs with more substantial body and large boots
    * Both elves have a soft plastic head/face/hair
    * “Christopher” also has soft plastic boots, hat & scarf
    * “Christopher” looks a bit more cute and cartoon-like
    * “Elf” has more of a sophisticated pixie look
    * I find both elves to be pitiful and would like to find an alternative somewhere else

    PROS
    * “Elf” – You get to name your elf
    * “Elf” – Elf comes in a variety of eye/hair/skin colors and choice of gender
    * “Elf” – I found the relaying of the story a bit more cleaver and engaging because of the rhyming

    CONS
    * “Christopher” – I find his name (Christopher Pop-In-Kins) to be rather hokey
    * “Elf” – You can now purchase a number of accessories for you elf (skirt, apron, etc.) While some may find this to be a positive, I find it to be a great example of marketing vultures. (Dear Company: Put some more time and money into making a decent-looking elf in the first place so people don’t have to pay even more for a half-inch semi-circle skirt to try and jazz up a sorry looking felt figure.)
    * “Elf” – I am pretty disgusted by the blatant plagiarism of story and idea. I mean, could they have at least made him a reindeer or snowman?

    BOTTOM LINE: I really Really REALLY wanted to like the “Christopher Pop-In-Kins” book and elf better. I really did. This author would seem to be the initial person behind the idea, and I tend to go for the little guy. However, I found myself more interested in the “Elf on a Shelf” book–probably due to the cleaver rhyming. I also liked the idea of being able to name your own elf. I would probably give the illustrations in the “Christopher” book a slight edge due to the colorful pictures.

    As far as the elf figures go, it is really a matter of personal preference. Their length and quality are quite similar, and I think either one would work well in different hiding places and poses. They have such different looks that one is bound to appeal to a person more than the other.

    I will probably go for “Christopher,” simply because he looks different than every other elf in everyone else’s house. Not to mention, I would like to support the camp of the person who came up with this idea so long ago but didn’t seem to have the marketing power behind her.

    Let the Insanity Begin…

    Merry Christmas!
