You may remember a couple of weeks ago I asked your opinion on The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition with Blue Eyed North Pole Pixie-Elf which I had discovered while browsing on Amazon. The major thing at the time keeping me from purchasing was a slight creep factor associated with the look of the elf. That seemed to be the biggest turn off for many of you who were hesitant.
After talking it over with my husband we’ve decided not to try this tradition out this year but want to reconsider next year. I talked earlier this month of my two year old Warren being scared of monsters and unfortunately he still is getting frightened often. We don’t want to add to this fear by talking of magically elves that move around in the night, as much fun as it sounds. Perhaps next year when he is a little older and has outgrown this fear we will try this out.
But I had to tell you about another similar product that was brought to my attention after my post. If you are considering adding an elf tradition, I think that Elf Magic is a great choice. Aren’t they adorable?
Here they are: the original, adorable Elf Magic Elves™ that magically visit children during the Christmas season and enrich lives with a timeless Christmas tradition. Santa himself placed an embroidered snowflake over each Elf’s heart so everyone will know that these are indeed his authentic Elf Magic Elves. With their companionship, hugs, adventures and love, these Magic Elves create memories the whole family will cherish for a lifetime. They magically arrive straight from the North Pole excited to become a part of your family and bring everything needed to start the Magic Elf “Timeless Christmas Tradition” in your home.
No creep factor associated with these dolls at all! They also offer some great accessories such as pajamas, a suitcase for them to sleep in and a Book and DVD combo which has Santa explaining Elf Magic.
So what do you think? Seeing this alternative choice would it change your mind about the tradition being creepy? If given a choice, would you choose Elf Magic over Elf on a Shelf? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
