Freaky Psychotic Little Elf on the Shelf...


Have you seen him? The demonic little fellow with a mischievous look on his face?

Meet the Elf on the Shelf.

My neighbor introduced me to hers today and I was afraid to get near him. Just look at him. I don't trust this face for one minute. He looks like pure evil.

According to tradition...

this antique-style Elf, has an important job. This Elf is assigned to watch over your family and report back to Santa each night about who has been naughty or nice that day. By morning he's back but he's in a different place in the house for a daily hide-and-seek ritual that will delight your kids and adults alike.

Does that sound like Chucky or what?

My six year old daughter wants one. REALLY BADLY. I tried to discourage her, but she won't stop asking.

I guess I'll have to bring this scary little dude into my house, but I'm telling you, once the kids go to bed, I'm locking him outside. He might give Santa a bad report...

But I'm not taking any chances....

Note how I said it twice so it's doubly freaky.

That IS weird. I have never heard of these. It would freak my son out if I told him a little doll was watching him and it disappeared and moved around. He's already turned around a stuffed animal that is on his shelf because it was "looking at him". Lol.

I'd never heard of it either, but I have a friend who tells me it's a Southern thing? No clue if that's true, the the mother/daughter who wrote this book and market it go to my church and.....$$$$$$$! It's quite the phenomenon.

my son (6) begged to buy this at his school book fair, so I did. I thought the book was poorly written and the concept of the big brother elf stupid, but my son loves his elf! I am actually having fun watching him get excited to look for his elf in the morning. There you go--only in America.

you should try www.elf-magic.com...it's much cuter and they can touch, hug and drag them around. They are not tattle tale elves

oh thanks for the reminder i have to go move zart, that is our freaky elf...

Maureen said...

Such a debate in our house - behavior mgt. for one month... then what? :) I think it's freaky too - my kids are freaked by Santa enough - "He comes IN the HOUSE while we SLEEP?" I don' think they're ready for the Elf.

He does look rather creepy! My parents used to play the trick on us by saying that an elf was peeking in from outside and watching us. Looking back I'm surprised that didn't scare me to death!! haha

The Mrs. said...

I am so with you. That dude freaks me out. Hubby wants to get the whole book and deal and I said no way. That thing will kill us in our sleep.

Seriously? He is NOT scary. We used to have two elves that sat at the top of our tree. LOL. Only mom and dad would have come up with that, huh? Instead of an angel, we had elves. Anyway, I found them the other day. Now one is perched on the top of our tree carrying on the tradition and the other is "about". I read the book in the store and thought it was lame. Our elf isn't watching. He is just around, so if there is anything you need to tell Santa or questions you need to ask, the elf/fairy will mysteriously travel to the North Pole. We know he has left and come back if he's in a different place. So, I am thinking the "fairy" route is the way to go...a little less big-brother. The problem in our house is that the kids keep accusing each other of moving it and it turns into a big fight (btw I think Drew is the one moving it). I threatened to bury the elf if they didn't stop arguing about it. Happy Holidays! I find it odd that they actually think this stuffed creature can travel to the North Pole...hmmmm?

Gaaahhh....we have one {named Trouble by the 3yo - imagine that}. 3yo discovered Trouble this summer hidden in the built-in bookcases and so I re-hid Trouble and now I can't find Trouble. Which is FINE with me.

That elf is FREAKY. Kind of like clowns - I think they're freaky too!

If I came across one of those elves I think I'd have to beat him up with Flat Stanley.

So... I'm not freaked out by an elf on a shelf. But Chucky's a different story. And does anyone remember the dummy from the movie Magic with - who else - Anthony Hopkins? It was the first "R" rated movie I ever saw...and I had nightmares for weeks. What is there about these dummies that freaks us out so much?

The wife said...

We have one and, yes, the kids love it. But when you are exhausted and fall asleep at night without moving the damn little Elf and you remember it in the middle of the night it is a pain! And the kids wake up first thing in the morning ready to start looking for it so you have to move it before they even think about waking up!

Brie said...

we have him too! The kids love him, I think he looks a little like Kurt from Glee.
