Even celebs like Kim Kardashian have to endure the hassle that is The Elf on the Shelf to make the holidays magical for their kids. And Kardashian recently shared via Instagram stories that her daughter North as well as her niece Penelope have started to question whether that Elf on the Shelf actually goes back to the North Pole by himself every night. So, the Kardashian kids took matters into their own hands and set up Kim’s Miku smart baby monitor in the living room to get to the bottom of the Elfie mystery.
Oh, and you can soon get this magical elf tracker — er, baby monitor — for $50 off!
Our mission at SheKnows is to empower and inspire women, and we only feature products we think you’ll love as much as we do. Please note that if you purchase something by clicking on a link within this story, we may receive a small commission of the sale.
Kardashian doesn’t confirm exactly how the kids’ experiment unfolds, or whether North and Penelope still believe in The Elf on the Shelf’s antics, but it’s safe to say she’d need to do some expert video editing to make it seem like the elves moved on their own. Kim, we’re all ears!
If you haven’t used your own baby monitor in years, we honestly can’t think of a more creative way to find a new use for it. And, if you need one — whether you’re expecting or your kids are just as suspicious as North and Penelope — the Miku smart baby monitor Kardashian uses will be $50 off from December 10-21 with the code HOLIDAY50 on the brand’s site. You’ll also get free 3-day shipping on all monitors. Maybe this was an early holiday gift from the elves themselves?
This handy device streams real-time video and audio, so we’re not sure how that editing part will work out or if that’s even a thing. But, those features certainly come in clutch if you’re using this as an actual baby monitor.
It can feel completely impossible to maintain The Elf on the Shelf myth for 25 days straight — let alone continue to do it year after year. But maybe if you enlist a baby monitor (or any kind of video camera, really) and scout innovative hiding spots for Elfie, the holiday tradition becomes a bit more suspenseful and fun?
So, if you start using this brilliant holiday mom hack going forward (that is, if you can hide yourself in the video), make sure to give North and Penelope a shoutout!
