Whether you're just starting your family on the Elf on the Shelf tradition or are introducing others to the tradition, The Elf on the Shelf: A Christmas Tradition book will make a great addition to the holiday season. This Christmas book tells the tale of the magical scout elves who work for Santa, reporting on which children are on the Nice List and who's on the Naughty List. The book comes with your very own Elf on the Shelf doll to bring the story to life. Kids will love looking for this sweet girl Elf on the Shelf every morning - but no touching, or she'll lose her magic.
My children love their elf! The elf itself has a brown skin tone, I would not label it "dark skin tone". But I guess that is accurate when there are only two options. I can't wait until elf on a shelf comes up with more diverse elves.
My daughter was so excited she finally got her very own elf and that she had brown skin and eyes like me and her do. I only wish the doll was a bit heavier so she could be in more places without worrying about it falling.
