It won’t be long now… We are counting down the sleeps… Waiting in anticipation for our Elf on the Shelf ®, Mr. Eddy McJingles to return! This will be our 2nd year of silliness and fun and we CAN NOT WAIT!
Where will Eddy be hiding?
What will he be getting up to?
Will he be bringing along another adorable furry friend?
For about a month or so, leading up to Christmas Day, our little Scout Elf will surprise us every morning – finding a spot to sit and watch, all day long. And every night, as we fall sound asleep, Eddy will fly back home to Santa in the North Pole. Giving a full report on the nice things we got up to that day. It’s just a bit of extra Christmas magic for our entire family to enjoy!
So how does Elf on the Shelf ® work?
- First, we adopted our Scout Elf from one of Santa’s trusted adoption agencies. – I’ve listed them at the end of the post. We decided on a boy, just to give dad some extra company.
- After adopting our Scout Elf it was time to think of a name. It had to be special, joyful and fun – just like our elf. After much debate, we finally agreed upon, Eddy McJingles!
- Now for the FUN. With some of Santa’s magic, Scout Elves can fly back to the North Pole each night. Reporting to Santa but don’t worry, they are sure to return in the morning. Waiting to be discovered in a new spot.
- Scout Elves are always nice and can’t wait to play, planning silly and sweet ways to bring magic into the Christmas season. They want to help you stay on the nice list.
- Scout Elves fly wherever they need using Christmas magic, but be careful, a Scout Elf will lose their magic if touched by human hands.
- However, mistakes do happen. So, if your Scout Elf is touched; write a “sorry” note to Santa, sprinkle a little cinnamon – it’s like vitamins for elves or turn up the Christmas carols. Your Scout Elf is sure to be flying again in no time.
- You may have noticed… Scout Elves don’t speak. They watch and listen and only talk while in the North Pole but please share your wishes and thoughts, they might just be able to help them come true.
- Scout Elves only visit once a year (maybe twice – on your birthday -if you ask Santa nicely) and leave the night before Christmas, ready to get back to the workshop, prepping for next Christmas.
There is so much more to learn about Scout Elves and thankfully each comes with a beautifully illustrated kid’s book explaining every detail.
The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition® is a family favourite and I just know we’ll be reading it over and over again this year.

The biggest challenge for our girls is not touching our Scout Elf. He’s just so cute! Who can blame them? He’s just so cute! That’s why we simply have to adopt an Elf Pet too.
The Elf on the Shelf and Elf Pets are the perfect team for fun family moments.
Unlike Scout Elves, Elf Pets love and need to be cuddled and held by the kids who adopt them. Last year a Saint Bernard pup stole our hearts. Ava was especially smitten, so his year we’ve decided to add another four-legged friend…
A mystical Arctic Fox Cub!
Elf Pets®: Artic Fox Cub
Adopt an Elf Pet Arctic Fox and keep Santa on schedule making his journey in one magical night! More hope is needed to save “The Song of Christmas” and, in turn, the Christmas Eve flight. Only kids who prove they believe by swirling the fox’s snowglobe can truly save the day!
- Beautifully illustrated hardbound storybook, explaining
- Huggable Arctic Fox
- Magical glow-in-the-dark snowglobe charm
- Official adoption certificate
Join us and add some extra festive magic by adopting this family tradition too.
Santa’s official Scout Elves are waiting for you to adopt them now from:
And guess what? We have a Scout Elf for one lucky reader too!
