A must-read for families during the holiday season – the classic tale by Aebersold and Bell that keeps kids in anticipation of Santa's arrival. Comes with an Elf on the Shelf figure with choice of colors.
The elf is a bit flimsy. A few complaints from consumers who received the wrong elf or none at all.
A soft, huggable elf with a sweet facial expression. 19 inches long – nice length that's ideal for kids who like to carry and cuddle plush toys. Customizable.
Not posable, so you can't sit it on a hard surface like the classic scout elf. Some consumers received the wrong elf.
Packed with fun ideas, tools, and accessories to keep scout elves busy this holiday season. Includes candy cane hooks, cable, swing, message cards and more.
The suction cups that come with it aren't very secure. Have to purchase a scout elf separately, since it doesn't come with one.
A memorable story of how Santa relies on reindeer and the spirit of Christmas to power his sleigh. Comes with a soft 8.25-inch plush reindeer.
The reindeer doesn't stand up very well – tends to fall over. Rare reports of the book arriving without the reindeer.
A newer Christmas tradition, the Elf on the Shelf, helps reinforce the magic of Christmas and the legend of Santa Claus. Each magical Scout Elf helps keep Santa’s “naughty” and “nice” lists up to date by reporting to Santa each night about the goings-on in his assigned house in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Parents move the Elf to the shelf, the family room, the top of the refrigerator and other creative hiding spots, for children to find in a new place each morning. Some kits come with story books or DVDs explaining the legend. Others may include the elf’s pet reindeer. There’s even a book for parents who need a little help coming up with fun hiding spots for their Scout Elf.
