Elf Magic: Bring Home the Tradition



Disclaimer:  Santa sent his elf to stay with us. 
All opinions are my own.

This is going to be officially my second Christmas but the only one that I may actually remember. Last year while I had a tree and lots of gifts under the tree, there was nothing really remarkable about my Christmas. This year mommy decided that it was going to be different. This year mommy decided that Mikael and I were going to write letters to Santa and he would send one of his Elf's to stay with us. Now I didn't believe mommy and neither did Mikael. After all the Elf's are needed to help make toys for our tree right? Well we did write our letter and guess what? A few days later our elves showed up. I don't know how it happened but it had to be Elf magic. Well that's what mommy said.





Santa sent me my very own elf girl named Kristen while Mikael got an elf boy named Garrett. This is going to be fun! My Kristen came with a letter from Santa telling me how to take care of her and she even came with Magic North Pole Snowflakes.



The magic snowflakes are needed to sprinkle on her at night so that she can come alive at night while I'm asleep. The great thing about Kristen is that I can actually play with her during the day.



I think Kristen must be into fashion like me. I've caught her getting stuck in my dresser one morning when I got up and another time she was in my closet. She must have been trying on my shoes. They're all too big for her so she must be checking to see if I needed new ones.



Mikael's Garrett has been up to pretty much the same thing as well. We caught Garrett trying to use the computer. I think he might have been trying to send an email to Santa about Mikael's behavior. He was even hiding out one day among their video games and once I caught him trying to sneak up stairs. He was hanging on the bannister.



I am having so much fun with my Kristen. If only she would come to life during the day but that would take some of the magic away mommy said.



Now mommy also said that you can bring the Elf Magic to your home as well. Santa has lots of different elves, both boys and girls in all different shades. You just write to Santa and tell him what you want and he can send them to you. I know it works because I have Kristen with me. You can also read about all the adventures the other elves are having. Kristen and Garrett will be traveling to Canada with us and I can't wait to share their adventures with you as well.

Here are the ways you can connect with Santa and his elves:

  2. Those elves are seriously too cute! It looks like she is loving it. I like the fact that they have so many different ones, all with different features.

  3. This seriously is too cute of rewords and must admit we do the Elf, but the traditional of not being able to touch or play when them when they are this little really is not fun for the kids, but this way, they can have fun and still have some magic to spare at night when they are sleeping tight. Totally going to look into for my girls and thanks for sharing!! :)

  7. I love how these little elves are personalized. They are also much cuter than some of the others I have seen. I'm so glad your kids are enjoying themselves!

  8. How cute! I have heard of the Elf on the Shelf type thing before but have always strayed away from it. Around here the Elf on the Shelf guys are always very mischievous and I just didn't like the idea of my kid having that kind of influence. But this seems really cute :) Thank you for sharing!

  9. That is so darn cute. We do a different elf in our house and the kids get such a kick out of him moving around every night.

  17. LOVE these! So cute!!! Kind of like "The Elf on the Shelf", but cuter, I think!

  18. This takes the elves to a whole new level. Since I've been in the blog world this is the first time I'm hearing about the whole concept of elf on a shelf and this post makes it looks so much fun for the kids.

  19. This is adorable. I'm new to this whole elves on a shelf thing, but I've been seeing them around this year and I got to say, it's an awesome fun tradition.

  20. The little elf sure is cute! I love the Elf Magic tradition I think it is a great way to create wonderful memories for the holidays.

  21. These are so cute!! And I love that the kiddos "can" play with them during the day! That's one thing about another magical elf that has me a bit confused with some of the schemes it gets itself into if you're not suppose to touch it at all!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Cool idea! And I like the way they look better than the ones everyone seems to have. I think my daughter finds them to be a bit creepy.
    I have no doubt that YOU are a very well-behaved girl!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love how your daughter gets to play with the elf. Have a great Christmas season!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Really cute! My zay would love Kristen ,too. The magic snowflakes is genius!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh my gosh how cute! Now this might be the best Elf post I've seen so far. These guys are adorable and not as - er - odd as the shelf guy. I love that they come with instructions!

    ReplyDelete

  29. I read this the other day and sent it to a lot of my friends who find elf on the shelf super creepy. These are so cute! Much better than the elf on the shelf!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love this elf especially since you can hold on to her during the day. The elf on the shelf you can't touch. This is so much better. Thanks for the cute review. I love all the things that both Kristen and Garrett are getting up to. :)
