Friday night we watched some Christmas cartoons. Guess what was on? Yep, The Elf on the Shelf. First the elves in the cartoon DID NOT look anything like that creepy scrawny THIRTY DOLLAR version you can gleefully purchase at your local Target. Next let me tell you that my daughter, though advanced in many ways, is a textbook 3 year old susceptible to the magic that is Marketing. Oh finally just crap on my parade even more! I went on the official Elf on the Shelf website and I can't put into words how AWESOME the darn thing is. Really, as a trained marketer this website made me glow after clicking through it!
Now having already watched the cartoon 3 times I am waiting for those dreaded words from my beautiful angelic daughter's mouth "Mommy can we get an Elf on the Shelf?"
Tell me, do you have one of these elves?
