New The Elf on the Shelf Products Are (Already?!) Here for Pre-Order at Target

It’s backkkk — The Elf on the Shelf has made its big 2020 debut. And no matter what your stance is on this popular yet still often hated holiday tradition, we can all agree that Ye Olde Elf really crept up on us this year. We can’t even begin to wrap our heads around planning for the holidays this early. So, not to add more to your parental to-do list but…The Elf on the Shelf is already on the shelves. The ones at the store, that is. Yes, in September.

Brace yourselves, because Target already has an impressive collection of new The Elf on the Shelf products available for pre-order online right now. So, we recommend beating the rush by adding them to your cart ASAP. The good news (or so we think) is that this collection is more than just iterations of Santa’s little spy that keep tabs on who’s naughty and nice. Some of the creative new products include a cute book — The Elf on The Shelf’s The Night Before Christmas — to add to your kiddo’s holiday book rotation, an advent calendar train, and a magical cookie plate that tracks Santa. We’re into these!

SK Conversations Back to Care

The Elf on the Shelf may keep you up at night thanks to its creepy eyes watching your every move, but kids can’t seem to get enough of it. If it brings them joy every year, you bet we’re going to keep the tradition alive. And no matter what, we’re not letting 2020 ruin the holidays for our kiddos. Check out some of the newest items below that you can pre-order right now and make sure to find the rest of the collection— they’ll officially be available to buy on November 1.
