It’s the Christmas tradition that allows cheeky parents everywhere to indulge in a little mischief and a lot of creativity.

Elf on the Shelf is based on a 2005 children’s picture book of the same name, written by American authors Carol V. Aebersold and Bell Chanda.

The story tells the tale of how scout elves are dispatched to homes from the North Pole at the start of Advent. Their job is to tell Santa who’s been naughty or nice. 

Part of the elves’ trickery is they ‘mysteriously’ move around the house – possibly with the aid of parents – leaving kids confused and quite possibly on their best behaviour. 

The book has led to a global trend for parents using Elf on the Shelf toys – and the countless imitations it has spawned – to keep their little ones in line in the run up to Christmas.
