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.

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.

Janine Huldie said...

We love our Elf. The girls named him Gingerbread and this is the second year he is making his appearance here now!! :)

mail4rosey said...

It's amazing how excited they get, I was happily surprised about how excited our little one was over the elf showing up.

mail4rosey said...

It's such a fun tradition. I'm happy you have an elf. :)

Jen said...

This is so cool! I love it. :)

mail4rosey said...

He is the coolest little thing, I'm happy he's here. :)

Dana said...

We have an Elf on the Shelf, and my kids absolutely love it! I have to admit that I have fun with it, too. :)

mail4rosey said...

Who knew right? Everyone's excitedly thinking up ideas to surprise the little one with the elf. It's brought a new excitement into our house during a time that's already happy, lol. I am very pleased with our Magic Elf. :) Thanks for the visit!

Launna said...

These are cute... a lot of people seem to have one of these now ;-)

mail4rosey said...

We didn't think we'd get one, but now that we have one oh my gosh, it's fun!!

Pam said...

These are really cute and they look like a lot of fun.

Judy Haughton-James said...

The elf is oh so cute! You have been coming up with great elf ideas! Beautiful shots. Enjoy the rest of your Monday Rosey.

MikiHope said...

What fun and it will certainly keep your little one entertained until the day arrives when "Santa" leaves all his gifts while he is tucked in all cozy in his bed!

mail4rosey said...

They are fun, Pam. :) Thanks for visiting!

mail4rosey said...

Happy Monday to you too, Judy. Thanks for stopping over. :)

Karen Glatt said...

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!

AMBER EDWARDS said...

Oh he is so cute!!! I love the positive message behind Elf Magic and their elves are much cuter than the "other elf" thing people do this time of year.

mail4rosey said...

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. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Karen! We're having a ball!

mail4rosey said...

I loved the positive message too. The letter was awesome!!

Rachee said...

Your son is so cute. The whole elf phenomeno

Rachee said...

Gah! My comment was cut off. This whole elf phenomenon is so cute. I love the idea of an elf causing mischief although we just did it around St. Patrick's day.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Rachee. He's having a really great time w/the elf. We all are, to tell the truth. :)

mail4rosey said...

That's a good idea to do it around St. Patrick's Day too. :)

April Hammond said...

That is a really adorable elf. Have a lot of fun with your tradition :)

Terri Lynn Grothe said...

Love love this so much, this is so much fun

Pat Hatt said...

That is a neat idea indeed and they are cute I suppose

Jayne Townsley said...

I like the looks of this one. I'll be honest, the other popular one kind of creeps me out.

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, April. :)

mail4rosey said...

Thanks, Terri. It really is fun. My husband put him outside peeking in at the Christmas Tree. The little one is so preoccupied with the tree we're pretty sure he'll see him pretty fast. ;)

mail4rosey said...

We're all pretty enamored with him, I have to say. :)

Athena Nagel said...

I love the elf - he is so cute (and your son too of course).

mail4rosey said...

We like our little elf. :) They come in different hair colors/skin colors too, and I like that!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks!! I think it's a fun tradition to start. :)

Annie said...

We've never had an elf in our family before! I may have to try this out when I have kiddos :)

mail4rosey said...

Easily one of the funnest thing we've done in awhile. :)

Aisha Kristine Chong said...

wow. I never experienced this myself but it sure is motivating for the kids! :)

mail4rosey said...

This is our first time too. It really is exciting for the kids.:)

Kim @ HappyPrettyBlog said...

Haha I can't wait to do this with my son!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

This year the twins have an elf in their preschool class!

Anonymous said...

I heard these started last year and I am just hearing of them, they are so cute. Hopefully we will get one this year.

Cynthia Landrie said...

What a cute little elf and what fun to have him going from place to place in your home. I bet your son can't wait to wake up!

Chrishelle Ebner said...

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.

Brian Miller said...

ha. very cool...we have had an elf for like 4 years...and he is very mischievous....one night each year he decorates the tree in our underwear...always a fun morning...tonight he is wrapping himself up, or trying to, under the tree...ha

mail4rosey said...

The kids just love it!

mail4rosey said...

My youngest has one in his Spanish class. :)

mail4rosey said...

I recommend it highly, it's really fun for the kids...which makes it fun for us. :)

mail4rosey said...

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. ;)

mail4rosey said...

Ruh Ruh...so much for elf magic. This year will be better (crossing fingers, knocking on wood for you). :)

mail4rosey said...

We had ours looking in at the tree from outside and it made me laugh (guffaws) when my son noticed him. :) Your antics sound fun. I like the elves. :)

Tough Cookie Mommy said...

I love immersing kids in all the magic of Christmas and the holiday season. I love having elves around the house for the kids to wonder about.

mail4rosey said...

The reaction is priceless, they're just delighted. What a fun concept. :)

Annemarie said...

That is one cute elf. I am jealous I am going to have to get myself one.

Katherine Bartlett said...

My mom was just telling me about the elf the other day!

DWei said...

Not for me, I'm not too fond of elves. :P

Veronica Lee said...

We've never had an elf in our family before! I love the idea! Gotta do this when I have grand kids!

Happy Tuesday, Rosey!

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

I always thought this would be so much fun! I hope you continue to share the mischief with us and your son's excitement!

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

He's so cute I want one

Le-an Lai Lacaba said...

How adorable! I love how it can be used for decorations too.

mail4rosey said...

You should totally get one. :)

mail4rosey said...

Ours is a funny guy. He makes us laugh anyway. :)

mail4rosey said...

We never had a tradition like this when I was young, I think he's fun. :)

mail4rosey said...

We're having so much fun coming up with the elf ideas. :)

mail4rosey said...

He does get excited, that's the best part. :)

mail4rosey said...

You're creative x100 (those Christmas signs you just made are awesome). I'd love to see what adventures you'd come up with for your elf. :)

mail4rosey said...

He is a cute little bugger even when he's just sitting there. :)

amanda whitley said...

this is the cutest idea! i wish i had the money to start this this year but will definitely be doing this next year

Karen said...

very cute, love all the fun things we can do with the elves, no matter which one you have. Though sometimes I am afraid I will forget to change his place each night.

mail4rosey said...

Hubby thinks the little will outgrow the elf magic next year, but I think he's got another year or two left in him. ;) In any case, he'll be a permanent holiday decoration once the youngest does outgrow the fun. :)

mail4rosey said...

hahha, the kids would so notice that too!! You made me laugh. :) I bet you'd do just fine. ;)

Ann Jones said...

Your son is so cute! The elf sounds like fun :)

mail4rosey said...

He is a fun addition to the festivities. :)

Theresa said...

I love how he colored Santa a picture. My daughter would have done that too :) Kids sure do love having an elf visit, don't they? It certainly adds a little more fun to the holiday!

mail4rosey said...

We're having a ball w/that elf! We're (as in me and hubby) are going to have to start taking turns because we're both full of ideas for the elf. :)

Amanda McMahon said...

unfortunately i wasn't very clear last year and our "elf" became a regular play doll. oops. no magic there!

Pam said...

These are so adorable. I wish we would have had these for our kids when they were young. Maybe we can do so with grandchildren down the road.

mail4rosey said...

They're cute enough to be regular play dolls. :)

mail4rosey said...

I think I'll get one for my granddaughter too when she's a little older. :)

Growing Up Madison said...

We LOVE our elves! I've been busying cooking up ideas on where to put him and her. Oh the things we can come up with, but oh the memories we'll have. :)

mail4rosey said...

That's how we are over here too...hubby and I are having so much fun with thinking up the ideas! I'm glad you have an elf too. I bet the kids do love it!

~ Noelle said...

we are having so much fun with our elf!
He doesn't move and get into too much mischief, but he did bring broxton new lincoln logs and built him a house out of them for the first night :)
today he was fishing for goldfish!!! haha ha
(his name is Patsy.... after my grandaddy!)

Julie Maloney said...

I'm so glad you told me about this! I forgot about Elf on a Shelf and I swore I would do that this year!

Patricia Woolverton said...

This is so darn cute. We are doing Elf magic but I think my 7yr is spooked by the whole thing a she said can we please not do the dust anymore at night? lol

mail4rosey said...

It's fun thinking up things to do w/the elf. It's our first year having one, and I'm so glad we got it. Pretty sure I'll get one of these for the new grandbaby when she's a bit older too. :)

mail4rosey said...

This one's Elf Magic, same concept... he's really fun, and I think he's cute too. :)

mail4rosey said...

I'm headed over to read about your elf. :)

Melanie said...

I love love love Elf Magic..I always highly recommend their elves.. we have one,too.. Becky is a joy and a troublemaker all at the same time.. but gotta love her...

mail4rosey said...

I'm glad you have an elf, I have been recommending these left and right since we got ours too. :) It really was love at first sight. :)

Mel Cole said...

What a cute Christmas ornament! Love that elf :)

mail4rosey said...

He's fun to hide, and he stirs things up a bit too. ;) Thanks for visiting. :)

Teresa McCluskey said...

I think this little fellow would be fun to hide around my house! He is def a cutie!

mail4rosey said...

Thanks for visiting, Teresa. He is cute. :)

Maria said...

this is so much fun! i always love the ways you make memories with your family! i look forward to surprising piper with the elf in the years to come. i even thought about doing it this year...even though she wouldn't have a clue. haha. that's how excited i am about it!
i hope you and your family had a wonderful thanksgiving. <3<3<3

Henrietta said...

Such a cute little elf! We never got into the elf thing but I love seeing all of the mischief everyone's get up to!

mail4rosey said...

We did have a fantabulous Thanksgiving, and the elf is fun, Maria. :)

mail4rosey said...

I never heard of the tradition until I had the last little guy. This is our first time having one in the house, and he really is fun. :)

Colette S said...

I'm just learning more about this elf thing. I must read more into it.
This little one is pretty cute too!

mail4rosey said...

I thought this one was cute too, and he's soft. I caught my son giving him a kiss this morning, lol!! Very sweet. :)

M Clark said...

I have heard about this Elf on other blogs and I wonder where it started. It's cute but it has nothing to do with the "true" meaning of Christmas.

mail4rosey said...

Agreed it's not, but also agreed that it's cute, and it was fun to do. :)
