 The original ELF

Have you ever wondered what inspired the book "Elf on the Shelf"?   Well it was these vintage pixie Elves.   Back in the late 50's, early 60's these little guys came out.  From what I got out of the story "Elf on the Shelf" the authors parents started the tradition by moving the little pixie Elf everyday - I'm thinking this was the whole inspiration of the story... and the story developed a little like this!     He's Santa's little spy and lets Santa know if you are good or bad... You can talk to him but do not touch him....Every morning he was placed in a new spot around the house for the children to jump out of bed and rush to find him.  Christmas Eve, he went back to the North Pole and returned next year.

This old vintage original Pixie Elf is almost an exact copy of what we know today as the "Elf on the Shelf"   This one was made a long time ago in Japan... The new ones are made in China.
