  1. No, not this year but will defo get one for next year! Read some great reviews and they were even promoted on Good Morning Britain last week. I think he would be good to keep an eye on my four little ones during the run up to Christmas!

    No I'm far too lazy and would probably forget most nights!!

    ReplyDelete
  111. No we didn't have an elf on the shelf this Christmas - it seemed like too much work and stress. However, my 8 year old is convinced he had an elf in his room who randomly played Christmas music at 5am (it later transpired it was his alarm clock!) so it looks like we'll have to do it next Christmas! I think I'm going to be spending a lot of time researching tricks! But if it keeps the magic alive for another couple of years, it will be well worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  112. We didn't have one as I hadn't heard of them before reading about yours definately going to have one on our shelf this Christmas

    ReplyDelete
  113. Yes we did, Alfie Trinket came to our house for Christmas, he got up to all kinds of mischief during the night. The girls couldn't want to see what he'd been up to each morning!

    ReplyDelete
  114. no not this year, but will do next year

    ReplyDelete
  115. No not this year as my children where not really old enough to understand but will certainly have a naughty little elf on the shelf next year :)

    ReplyDelete
  116. next year we are going to give the elf a go x should be fun

    ReplyDelete
  117. Not this year but will next year! I've seen some very amusing pictures!

    ReplyDelete
  118. our little elf was called Breezy

    ReplyDelete
  119. We didn't have one this year but have so many great ideas from friends who did that we will definitely be getting a visit this year

    ReplyDelete
  120. My 3 children had one each, Davie, Scout and Evie. And they came back today with a wee birthday card and letter for my wee birthday girl and the kids were over the moon they were back lol
