Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for The Elf on the Shelf A Christmas Tradition with Blue Eyed North Pole. The BoolPool rating for this product is Excellent, with 4.50 stars, and the price range is $29.95-$39.99.

The Elf on the Shelf is a Christmas Traditional tool that helps Santa know which kid is to be listed as naughty and nice. At the start of each Christmas season, the elf appears to serve as Santa's eyes and ears, traveling back to the North Pole each night to make a detailed report of the day’s activities. The original Elf on the Shelf set includes a light skin, blue-eyed magical scout Elf from North Pole and a hardbound watercolor children's storybook. The tradition begins by reading the book and giving a special name to the Elf, and the kids can register their Elf online to receive an official adoption certificate and a special letter from Santa. The Elf on the Shelf comes in light skin tone and dark skin tone boy and girl scout elves to choose from. It is fun for whole family and has become a tradition in many families. 

However, some parents feel that the Elf story is too negative and creepy for children. In addition, many users feel, though Elf is cute, he/she can be made of better quality material.

Overall, The Elf on the Shelf a Christmas Tradition with Blue Eyed North Pole is gaining its popularity for its educational value of teaching right from wrong to kids and also helping in adding some positive and discipline experience among kids. It is a good purchase for adding some joyful moments in holiday season as family members of all age groups, including kids, love this fun and interactive holiday tradition.
