Elf Magic

Disclosure: A product was received to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

In a word, Elf Magic is AWESOME!!  My son was so so sooooooo excited about this little elf coming to our house (it's his first time ever having one).  Before I get into the review, just so you know, there is a Buy $30+, get an elf free sale going on that that ends 12/2 (Cyber Monday). You can get the code here: http://www.mail4rosey.com/2013/12/buy-one-get-one-free-cyber-monday-sale.html


Getting the elf was easy, first I wrote a basic note to Santa, my son signed it and drew a picture (because he knew Santa would like a picture).

Writing his letter to Santa, asking if he can send over an elf.
Writing the letter was fun, but not as fun as waking up the next morning and finding the elf had already come to visit!

Elf Magic comes with a soft green bag (for storage), Magic Snowflakes, and a sweet scroll letter.

Mom and Dad knew that Elf Magic came in a pretty box with a soft green bag, a bottle of magic snowflakes, and a super sweet scroll letter for the little one.

Little man just knows that he came to visit. :) When he woke up this morning, the first thing he did was go look at the tree. We suspected he would, and imagine his surprise to find the Elf was checking out our new tree as well.

Our son was instantly enamored with his little elf and wondered what kind of things the elf might do, or where he might hide when we were all asleep.  The family and I are busy cooking up ideas.

Elves have to toilet paper something, it's impossible to resist. ;)

Of course he'll have to toilet paper the tree...

Sometimes you have to get upside to see what's going on
peek in the stockings...

Hanging with the Gingerbread Family

and hang out with the Gingerbread Family, but there are lots of other things we want to do with our Elf Magic elf, and we'll be brainstorming some original and fun ideas for the elf to do while we're lucky enough to have him 'visiting.'

If you haven't gotten an elf, I highly recommend Elf Magic. The elves are soft, huggable, and cute, and the magic they bring along with them is sure to please. Our little one was beside himself happy that our elf came, and I'm sure his teacher heard all about it today. ;) I'm sure Elf Magic is going to be a happy part of our family traditions for years to come.

  1. We do something similar with a different elf and my boys go BANANAS! Our elf gets into all sorts of trouble and they get such a kick out of it.

    1. Agreed, and it really is fun!! Far more than even we thought it would be, I guess because it's so exciting for little man to find it. We hid it for after school, and we'll find something for him to do in the wee hours of the night each night too. ;)

  9. I love it! I love the Elf on the shelf and finding fun places to put him! I am going to get one of these someday and put him in different places. Your son is so cute making and asking for Santa to send him an elf!!! Such a cute post!

    1. You're 100% correct. It's easy to get him to bed now too, we sprinkle the elf w/his snowflakes (that came with his packaging), put out the crackers, and he's happy to get right in bed so the elf can go exploring. I'm going to miss the elf when Christmas rolls around, lol. ;)

  24. We had an Elf that went MIA last year. About six months later I found his remains under our bed. He fell victim to our puppy. I bought another one for this year, hopefully our fur baby does not have a taste for elf this year. Cute tradition.
