Elfing Around Christmas Adventure - Review and Giveaway

Christmas is coming!  Please don't shoot the messenger.  Do you have any Christmas Traditions that you enjoyed as a child and are passing them down to your own kids?  Do you want to find a fun and unique tradition to share with your kids and watch them light up with excitement?  How about an elf to come for a visit from the North Pole and create some mischief during the proverbial '12 Days of Christmas'?

Lisa Huckemeyer is the creator of Elfing Around®, a unique and fun tradition you can enjoy with your kids. These cute and mischievous elves can help create a new fun Christmas tradition - aren't they adorable?

Lisa had great elf traditions passed down from her Norwegian grandmother, and wanted to create something fun and unique for her children - something interactive that would create a sense of adventure during the Christmas season. Because of her desire to do so, Elfing Around® was born.

Along with your choice of the boy or girl elf, the Elfing Around package includes a letter that you give your children a day or two before their elf friend “arrives.”  That first special night you set up your elf along with the elf letter and cute little elf tattoos for your child to find in the morning.  After this first morning, the 12 nightly "adventures" begin.  Each morning your child will wake up to find your elves in a new "scene".  How about a snowball fight set up with cotton balls?

The package includes a handy Parent Adventure Guide Book®. This book is the “magic” behind the tradition and will be every parents nightly must read! The Adventure Guide Book® gives the parent 12 adventure suggestions (one for each night).


Twelve pre-printed postcards are also provided. The “magic” is creative, fun and done for you.  Everything is easy to set up with items that you normally have in your house. Imagine the anticipation as your child says goodnight to their little elf friend, wondering what mischief he or she will be up to while they sleep.

On December 24th, your child’s Elf friend is to be placed where Santa can find him or her (I figure placing the elf near the cookies and milk for Santa is a perfect spot). Santa will return your vacationing elf friend to Lapland, North Pole… Simply hide the Elf until the next holiday.

In addition to the Christmas adventure, each child receives a birthday postcard from their elf. If that’s not enough, Elfing Around® also has mini elf adventures to be used during the other holidays. These are great extras and once purchased, you can print them from your home computer – no shipping costs or delivery time.


Buy It: Visit Elfing Around® and pick up your own Elf friend and create fun memories with your family for only $29.99. It’s affordable and fun and your children will cherish the memories they have of their elves forever!
********************

This looks like something my nephew would love. He's just the right age for Santa and elves and all sorts of Christmas "magic". Old enough to understand, young enough to believe.

littlelatina said...

this looks awesome my boys would love it

Missesprincess said...

I would love to have this for my baby to be...I imagine my niece and nephew would get a kick out of it this year.

Mrsbear said...

Very cute idea. I'd choose a boy elf, since my boys are the only ones that still believe in Santa. I might have to name him Skip and make him and ex-shoe cobbler. ;)
