The Elf on the Shelf - A Christmas Tradition™ - Boy Elf
How does Santa really know who's been naughty or nice? The elf answers the age old question in The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition.
Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is an activity the entire family will enjoy. This cleverly rhymed children's book explains that Santa knows who is naughty and/or nice because he sends a scout elf to every home. During the holiday season, the elf watches children by day and reports to Santa each night. When children awake, the elf has returned from the North Pole and can be found hiding in a different location (with some parental assistance). This activity allows The Elf on the Shelf to become a delightful hide-and-seek game.
The Elf on the Shelf Tradition:
Have you ever wondered how Santa knows who is naughty and who is nice? The Elf on the Shelf – A Christmas Tradition is the very special tool that helps Santa knows 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 become a part of the family’s Christmas each and every year.
Excellent listeners and even better observers, these scout elves are the 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.
Each night, after the family goes to bed, the scout elf uses his magical Christmas powers to fly back to the North Pole. Once there, the elf will make his or her daily report to Santa and visit with elf friends where they will tell stories about their beloved families, play with the reindeer, and of course, sneak some of Mrs. Claus’ cookies!
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.
On Christmas Eve, the scout elf will listen for Santa’s bell and then fly back to the North Pole until the next season, wishing every girl and each boy a Christmas of peace and a year full of joy.
Each Elf on the Shelf Tradition-in-a-Box comes with its very own scout elf, a hardbound children's book and a keepsake box for easy storage.
Since its launch in 2005, The Elf on the Shelf® has captured the hearts of children everywhere who have embraced the magic of adopting their very own scout elf, sent by Santa Claus. At the start of each Christmas season, the elf appears to serve as Santa’s eyes and ears, and every night it travels back to the North Pole to report in. This gift set includes a light skinned/blue eyed, boy North Pole pixie-elf, hardbound children’s book and keepsake box. Children can register their elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa.
