Bring the Christmas magic home for your little one to enjoy by adopting a Scout Elf from the Elf on the Shelf! Once kids adopt and name their own Scout Elf, they’ll learn the traditional tale of Santa's little helpers. Start a new holiday tradition with Scout Elf starter kits, Elf Pets, accessories, clothing, and much more!
Each day leading up to Christmas, Scout Elves pick a spot in a family’s house and keep watch over the kids and parents, reporting back to Santa with all the good things they’ve done that day! At the end of the day, it’s back to the North Pole to rest up for the next bright, shining day! While they’re in a family’s home each day, it’s fun to dress them up, play with their Elf Pets, and take photos - all while building a lasting, memorable tradition that children will never forget!
