He is lovely! The lady makes them to order and does girl elves too along with a letter personalised for your dc.
I'm so pleased with it.
Am I allowed to state where he was from or is it advertising?! I found him on eBay but she has a site of her own too.
Can't wait for 1st December now. Tempted to put him out now!

They actually look really sweet, I think the original elf on the shelf looks rather creepy!

Does anyone else think the whole idea is a bit sinister?

Yes I don't do the no touching spying on kids part - ours are more like toys and come on days out etc.

We just do the fun what have they been up to now part

I've seen loads of elf on the shelf stuff on Pinterest... wtf is it all about? I don't get it hmm

My elf looks very friendly. He comes with a nice letter from Santa too.
Yes, very pleased with him.
I'm not going to do the creepy watching what ds does thing, just the fun parts.

I like the idea of the elf watching might make the swines behave grin Agreed original elf is creepy.

Keebler is similar to my elf.
I also like gizmo. The girl elves were nice too. They look benevolent rather than scary, elf on the shelf the original version is a bit sinister.

I have been looking for a different elf too as I also think the original one is wierd looking. These are much cuter!

The very nice elf lady will make them specially if you tell her what colours you want (hair, eyes, clothes) and if you want a boy or girl elf.
They aren't cheap but they are lovely.
