When the cat's away, the mice will play — or in this case, it's Elf, who's been "ruffhousing" with the family dog.


Spa day

After hours of keeping tabs on the kids, Elf needs to put his feet up and relax! A couple of washcloths and a tiny hair clip make the perfect spa attire.


Say it with Sharpies

It looks like somebody had a little fun with the markers. And we have to agree — this fellow really does rock!

Take a cue from the shoemaker and leave out the Rainbow Loom for your elf. If you're lucky, he might whip up a few fishtail or hexafish bracelets while you slumber — and they're so much more fun than a pair of leather shoes, right?

Oh Elf, what is it with you and the sweet stuff? Some of our friends' elves have gotten into the cocoa and marshmallows or even into the ice cream in the freezer, but for our guy, it's all about 100 percent maple syrup.


Word games

Make no mistake — the Elf on the Shelf is a real ladies' man. He's been known to go for a spin with Barbie in her convertible or cuddle up with the sexiest siren in the playroom.

This Elf selfie reminds us of the scene from E.T. in which the alien visitor hides in a closet full of stuffed animals. Kinda cute and kinda creepy.


Happy hour

Party time! Elf has been known to help himself to the liquor cabinet. Miniature bottles are his preference, but the little guy is pretty clever with the corkscrew, too.

Quick tip:

Now Jewish families can start their own Hanukkah tradition of having a watchful visitor in the home with The Mensch on a Bench. However, due to huge demand, Mosche the Mensch is sold-out until 2014.
