My son loves his elf; I brought the DVD also and this really helped him to understand the concept.
Great idea and great tradition. I do think it is very expensive for what you get but to see my sons face it was worth every penny

So I had been planning to get this little elf for a long time, I had planned all his activities before he came.
When it arrived I was disappointed.
When you search the internet for Elf on the Shelf ideas, you can see in America that all their elves are positioned in great places. They can stand up, hold things etc. The elf that came with this is just a soft toy with a moveable head. It's arms & legs are just full of stuffing so cannot hold it's own weight, it barely even sits up.
I posted on the Elf on the Shelf Facebook page to see if what I had received was a fake, but it turns out that this is just how they are made.
The Elf itself is made out of very thin felt, so when I tried to put a wire in its arms & legs it just created holes that cannot be stitched.
I am so bitterly disappointed with this elf. I wish I had paid a tenner for the elf in Argos that looks far better quality.

Have given 2 stars for the concept only. My 3 children love waking up every morning to see what he has been up to. I just wish I hadn't tried to be a snob by going with the expensive version.

We did this with our kids last year and it was so much fun.
Every morning they bounced out of bed to find their elf.
Also helped immensely that the elf reported what he saw and heard back to Santa !!!!

toy and a book in a lovely box. I was bit worried about ordering it as some reviews mentioned they did not received the toy, but I did not have to worry, it is perfect. Can't wait to give it to my kids at the begining of December :)It was a very good value for money as I bought it for less then £24. Highly recommended
