Ours rolled our Christmas tree with toilet paper last year for his grand entrance, this year we will have two, one for each child. It is fun!

i think next year he's going to bring a girl elf with him..his "sister"..i have 2 boys and 2 girls, so that'd be cute, i thought..but this year, we'll just stick w/ the one elf =)

Our Elf, Berry is very mischivous! He made snowflakes out of coffe filters and put them on the Christmas tree and around the house, got into the cereal, found him in Barbie's car with Barbie under his arm, hid my phone in the cabinet, hid in the Christmas tree...lots more I can't think of atm... it's so much fun to figure out what to do next. The kids get a kick out of it!

I think it's a super cute idea, but honestly sounds like a lot of work.

Does anyone know where to get one?  My cousins use them but they found them years ago.  I want to start that tradition this year for my 5 year old but don't know where to get one!

i saw a thing on google where he brought green milk back w/ him from the north pole.. i thought that would be super cute!...we would probably only do a half gallon, not a whole gallon though =)

sounds like fun!! I would want to take him with us to do our caroling and things like that. He could be like a christmas flat stanley kind of thing. Take pictures and send to family. But it says on the web site that he cant be touched. I might change it to fit the way we do things. I think my kids would love it
