The Elf on the Shelf was written in 2004 by Carol Aebersold and daughter Chanda Bell over a cup of tea. Bell suggested they write a book about an old tradition of an elf sent from Santa who came to watch over them at Christmas time. Aebersold’s other daughter, Christa Pitts, was recruited by the family to share her expertise in sales and marketing. Together, the trio devoted the next three years promoting their self-published book and attending book signings and trade shows. Check the other pictures of Elf on The Shelf Printable below
The Elf on the Shelf won the Best Toy Award by Learning Express, won Book of the Year Award from Creative Child Awards and National Best Books Award sponsored by USA Book News in 2008. On 26 November 2011, a 30-minute animated special titled An Elf’s Story: The Elf on the Shelf aired on CBS, directed by Chad Eickhoff.
The Washington Post criticized the quality of the animation and dismissed it as “just a half-hour advertisement for a book and a toy”, which it felt would not join “the canon of prime-time animated Christmas specials that actually move the spirit”. Common Sense Media disagreed, calling the special “a great addition to families’ holiday TV traditions”; however, they also warn parents about the consumer-driven nature of the story, and make note of its lack of educational value.
