Anyone else "Elf on a shelf"

It's fun for the kids. Plus I get to come up with ideas on what to do next.

got it last year for our kid. he was 3 (now 4) and it is awesome. all we had to do was point at (or mention) the elf (Flash) and the kid is instantly good.

Our elf is coming tomorrow morning supposedly. Wife wants to have him in the kitchen cooking breakfast and cookies when our 3 year old wakes up.

Every morning I usually move him around the house and its funny for mom and the boy to try and find him.

Ditto on both accounts here as well... its nice to be able to immediately stop a 4yr old during a major meltdown.

We just started it night before last, my six year old is petrified of it and the four year old thinks it is the greatest, pretty good idea!

It's awesome! Litteraly the slightest mention of the elf during a fit and instant good behavior! We started it this year, and so far I love it!

That and the elf is suppose to be watching the kid and reports directly to Santa any behavior. Also if you touch him he.looses his magic powers and goes back to the north pole.

Typing that out made me realize how ghey it is! Haha

I've got most of my cousins kids thinking that smoke detecters have little cameras in them and that Santa has teams of elvs to monitor them year round. They become well behaved around this time of year.

Been doing it for years. This was the first year I saw the "product" we just found an elf doll about 5 yrs ago & started doing it. In fact Santa left a letter yesterday that the elf has been taken away until the fighting stops. :wink:

My mil bought it for a 4 yr old cousin when we were in Fla. the little girl loves it and is convinced its magic. I thought it was pretty clever.

We are. Our perfect elf turned nasty two nights ago, and strowed toilet paper up in the hanging ceiling fan, and got caught up in it!!

Santa had her do a time out in the fridge.


God Bless,
