What a great way to introduce your child to homeland security surveillance.
ELF ON THE SHELF is a brilliant invention, may have been around for awhile, but in the serendipitous way of all things, I was told about it on Sunday and spotted one in Hallmark's GOLD Store on Tuesday. Here's the deal: you put this doll somewhere in your child's world. He "reports" back to Santa if you've been a good little kid. Parents move it while the child sleeps, so it appears the ELF has been moving about at night.
If it doesn't work, show them the movie CHUCKY. But I digress.
Here is a great way for those folks at homeland security to educate a child on the benefits of surveillance! It's positively Disney-like programming.
