'Elf On The Shelf' taken to the next level

In 2004, Carol Aebersold and her daughter Chanda Bell wrote a book about an elf sent by Santa to watch over them at Christmas time. Over ten years on, the concept has become a modern Christmas tradition is taking the world by storm.

A special little elf is sent to your home from the North Pole to make sure the kids are behaving themselves throughout the festive season.

A lot of fun for adults too, they can be hidden anywhere, keeping an eye on the little ones and returning at night to make their reports to Father Christmas on who has been naughty or nice.
