the elf book
Have you ordered your
Elf on the Shelf® yet?

Have you ever wondered how Santa knows who is naughty and who is nice? The Elf on the Shelf® is Santa's special scout that watches the children by day and reports to Santa each night. When children awake, the elf is back from the North Pole and hiding in a different location. This activity allows The Elf to become a delightful hide-and-seek game.

Welcome a new family addition!

Got an Elf already?

Send us snaps of what your Elf has been up to lately!
