On the very slim chance you haven’t been introduced so far, we want you to meet The Elf on the Shelf!

We’re super big fans of this magical little guy and consider it our community service announcement to make sure you know about him too.

The time in your parenting journey where children ‘believe’ is truly not long enough. One of the best parts of motherhood is ‘creating the magic’ for our little people and allowing them to linger a little longer in the happy place that is pure and undoubting innocence. These are the moments you can’t bottle, the ones you want to never end and the times you’ll look happily back on when your own rituals have evolved to become treasured family traditions.

Cue our love affair with the Elf on the Shelf.

What!? You haven’t heard of Elf on the Shelf? Here’s what you need to know!

The Elf on The Shelf: A Christmas Tradition is a magical story that explains how Santa’s scout elves help him manage the Naughty or Nice List. Each illustrated, hardcover book comes as part of a presentation box that also includes your very own scout Elf. This Elf is charged with watching over your home and reporting the family’s day to Santa each night.

When a family christens their Elf a chosen name he receives his ‘Christmas magic’ and can then fly home to the North Pole each night. Each morning the Elf returns to its family and perches in a different place to continue watching the festive fun, creating a unique family moment. Children delight in racing around the house and finding where their scout Elf has landed next! Be warned, you can never touch your Elf as little fingers will break the Christmas magic!

Whilst elves have infiltrated Aussie homes in years prior, 2016 is a festive milestone as The Elf on The Shelf: A Christmas Tradition officially launches in Australia.

Why should your family adopt an Elf this year?

For the team at Mum Central, we’re truly passionate about having an Elf in our home. Of course there’s the immediate ‘The Elf is watching…’ benefits that encourages positive and kind behaviours but the gifts of adopting an Elf run far deeper than that.

Making memories and following or adopting rituals is how family culture is born. Traditions such as The Elf on the Shelf provide us with a source of family identity. They strengthen our bonds, teach values and bring ritual and rhythm to the seasonality of family life. Year after year our children delight in the immediate joy of an Elf, not yet old enough to realise that one day in the future they’ll do the very same for their own offspring.

Lastly, we’d be lying if we didn’t tell you this straight. We Mum Central girls have a giant crush on The Elf on the Shelf. This is not just kid-fun. This is serious mummy-fun too. Before you know it you’ll be excitedly planning his next move, relishing the joy he brings into your home and appreciating the Christmas spirit he sprinkles! We’re here to assure you, every home needs an Elf… because big or small you’re never too old to believe in a little magic!

    Each elf is unique & magical! They show kids that Christmas time is a special time a magical time for family’s to gather & be joyful, not just about presents. It gets the kids excited about waking up each morning & helps them have magical dreams as they sleep wondering where Elf will be hiding the next day. Makes the realise how Important good behaviour is. Just love these magical caring Elfs

    Firstly I know little about Elf on the shelf. As a child growing up, I never got the chance to ‘Believe’ as it was non-existent in my household. I have done the opposite for my children to give them the magic of Christmas, it would be nice to start this tradition with Elf on the Shelf with my family and for it to be passed down the generations.

    It was the nights before Christmas and not a sound could be heard, except for the parents whispering a word
    what should we do with elf tonight? play with the lego? the barbie? the light?
    The children would love to find him – eating treats, or should we put him on the dolls house seats?
    How do we keep up the Christmas glee? for the children, the grandparents? You and me?
    Perhaps its we parents who need a hand, to protect kids innocence across the land
    Elf on the shelf will help us spread magic and joys, to all of the good little girls and boys
    Because the magic of Christmas is something to cherish, the belief in Santa, a sweet thought to relish
    We do hope to win this dear little elf, to sit upon OUR family shelf
    We promise to play and make kids believe – elf on the shelf until Xmas eve!

    Very Cute little Elf! Would love to win him -Jess

    Would love to win Elf on a Shelf to bring back the magic after having a hard year . My husband was stood down at the beginning of the year and so we are now on unemployment with a mortgage.

    I’d love an elf on the shelf as this year Miss 3 (going on 13!) has a much better understanding of naughty and nice lists and I intend to use it to my advantage!!

    This little ELF sure makes a HUGE impression. and we all know good things come in small packages. Living in a unit, so I could only imagine the FUN we could get up to at our place to help my 2 little helpers behave even better 😉

    An Elf on the Shelf that migrates around the household, being naughty or nice.. the little ones would enjoy searching and relate to him.. ever watching. Better than Mum’s eyes at the ‘ back of her head ‘ catching them being less naughty and hopefully more ‘nice’.

    I feel the elf brings a little magic into the house over the festive season. He/she is cheeky, funny, exciting for the kids. I would love to share the magic with my kids this Christmas. The Elf would be a much better was to wake up each day than all the bad news in the world. I’d love to see the kids faces when they go looking for the elf each day.
