The Elf on the Shelf is a super cute Christmas tradition. This set comes with the Elf on the Shelf storybook & Scout the Elf! The magical Scout Elves help Santa manage his naughty and nice lists by taking note of a familys Christmas adventures, and reporting back to Santa at the North Pole nightly. Each morning, the Scout Elf returns to its family and perches in a new spot, waiting for someone to spot them. Children love to wake up and race around the house looking for their Scout Elf each morning.
