We had the other popular Christmas elf and found that, frankly, he was creepy. This elf is most certainly NOT creepy! I love that he's bendy, so he can get into lots of shenanigans, and he's a lot bigger than I'd anticipated!

My only word of caution is that if you have a child who still believes and can read, be sure to cut out the dedication page in the book, which essentially gives the secret away. I almost didn't catch it and I know my voracious reader would have seen it right away... and honestly, as short as childhood is these days, I want her to hang on to the magic and wonder of Christmas for as long as she can. :)

All in all, I love this to pieces and *highly* recommend adding this Christmas tradition to your holiday season!

I have a 3-year-old and considered entering the insanity that is "Elf on a Shelf." In reading reviews, I discovered an alternative: "Christopher Pop-In-Kins" Our local library had a complete gift set of both mischievous elf stories and companion elves. Here is a comparison..

THE STORIES ARE INCREDIBLY SIMILAR
I am utterly stunned by the similarities in the two stories. In fact, I am amazed that the author of the "Christopher" book (written in 1985) hasn't sued the "Elf" author (written in 2005) for plagiarism.
* Both elves have been sent by Santa to keep an eye on their assigned child/children and report back to Santa
* Both elves relocate within their assigned home each evening
* Both elves are not to be touched by the children in the home
* Consequences for touching either elf is the same--he/she will have to go back to Santa for awhile
* Both elves are to return to Santa on Christmas eve
* Size of books are almost identical

"CHRISTOPHER POP-IN-KINS"
* Illustrations are more vivid with a lot of primary colors
* The story is narrative in fashion
* The book spends most of the time explaining why Santa sent him to your home
(Christopher was sad and wanted to see the children who the elves had been making toys for, so Santa decided to use Christopher as a spy, of sorts.)

"ELF ON A SHELF"
* Illustrations are more subdued and resemble dry water colors with a lot of peach/orange/rust
* The story is told in a rhyming fashion
* The book spends most of the time telling the reader about the actual process of hiding each day

COMPARING THE ELF FIGURES
* For something that is to be a family heirloom and last year after year, both elves are remarkably lacking in substance, quality and design.

So happy I found out about this. It was fun for the whole family. My son really enjoyed looking for him everyday. Our elf came out the day after thankgiving. Along with playing hide n seek the elf would do things. On days our son was very naughty the elf would be naughty too... One night the elf threw my son's clean undies in the x-mas tree and around the room... another night the elf TP-ed his room.... we had a blast with ideas. When he was good he got something some mornings. Like a christmas book or movie. On christms eve the elf left reindeer food (oats and cookies sprinkles) to throw on the lawn before he went to bed. Now I have to come up with more ideas for next year!

We love Mr. Popinkins, as we've grown accustom to calling him. The concept is that we move our elf every night while our son is asleep. The next day he looks for him. It has actually gotten to be quite a lot fun for us parents too. Here are some things we've done with our elf so far:

** He showed up (from Santa of course) and we read the accompanying story to our son (who's 4) and we put Mr. Popinkins on our mantle. The next day he was found in the fruit bowl surrounded by orange peels. He was very hungry from his journey from the North Pole.

** Then he showed up on my son's book shelf playing with his legos.

** Then he really got into mischief and we found a trail of candy wrappers across the floor, into the pantry and up to the leftover halloween candy and there he was holding his tummy with both hands and chocolate all over his face.

** Next he was found hanging from the chandelier putting up decorations.

** It got very cold the next night and we was snuggled up in our son's stocking. But then when my son go home from school Mr. Popinkins was gone? Where did he go?

** He returned and was found sound asleep in the guest bed holding a small present that he went to the North Pole to get - for my son because he was being exceptionally good and listening.

We (the parents) have been having a great time finding new and creative things for Mr. Popinkins to get in to. And of course our son is enjoying him too. :-)

He has posable limbs so we are able to stand him up, have him hang on things and pose for action shots (like hanging decorations). I don't know if the elf on a shelf has this, but we love it.

Enjoy the elf! We certainly.

I agree with a previous review---which said "My only word of caution is that if you have a child who still believes and can read, be sure to cut out the dedication page in the book, which essentially gives the secret away. I almost didn't catch it and I know my voracious reader would have seen it right away... and honestly, as short as childhood is these days, I want her to hang on to the magic and wonder of Christmas for as long as she can. :)" So because I read that I tore it out...
well.... my daughter was so excited about christopher when he arrived today! so excited, then when she started questioning it and reading the box outload....I nearly jumped out of my seat when she started reading "how to play", which apparently was what the elf is attached to when he arrived....ugh so bummed. She said so its a game and YOU hide the elf....luckily my husband tried to talk it down and said no its that the adults can help guide him to find good hiding places....not sure if she bought it....
