Reminds me of a Raggedy Ann doll my family and I used to hide in various places around Halloween to creep each other out.

Does anyone else think this is one of the creepiest things ever?

It is a very creepy toy. I would hide it just to freak people out. Muahaha. One day he'll be in the bathroom cabinet. The next on top of the ceiling fan in the living room. Peeking behind books on the bookshelf. I would hide it in cookie jars, in backpacks, hangers in the closet. I'd put it in so many places it would give people nightmares. :D

My kids LOVE their elf on a shelf! :)  Right now, she is in our van... on the center console, riding in a Barbie car with Ken.  LOL!

He is creepy. But if it works & the kids are having fun, who cares!

I'm not at all impressed with those locations...So far we have seen the elf on top of the curtain rod, on top of a giant mirror, the cabinet tops and tomorrow he will probably be hanging from the light fixture.  The point is that my son enjoys searching for him.  If the elf is sitting in his shoe or holding his toothbrush, well that's no fun, AND then he has to touch the elf to finish dressing in the morning.  We all know what happens if you touch the elf, DON"T WE????

This thing creeps me out. IDK what it is. But it's just wrong.

YES creepy. I like it in the freezer but down the toilet or in the garbage bin would be even better.
