EILEEN: If the adorable faces on these shelf elves look like they have stepped right out of your childhood Christmas album or your grandmother's house, they have! Whether you are looking to create new traditions and memories for your family, or want that touch of yesteryear in you home, this vintage group will do just that. These are original dears from the 50's and consists of 2 large knee huggers 2 unique standing elves. Aside from the two tiny holes on one collar they are in very fine condition. Two of them still have their original 'Made in Japan' labels.This charming piece of nostalgia will be sweet grouped on your shelf or mantle, peeping out of a stocking, or even nestled in your Christmas tree. Great for a gift since the release of 'The Elf on the Shelf' book. Another touch of yesteryear as you create today's memories! We will ship them priority and as always with free delivery confirmation. If you purchase something else, they may get to be added for next to nothing for their shipping.

AMANDA: While researching these adorable elves I came across many claiming that the elves were very mischevious. I must admit that I didn't believe that ours could be anything more than the cute and innocent elves they appeared to be. I was very wrong. We didn't notice anything unusual until it came time to look through our pictures and that's when we saw it. One picture shows a sweet looking elf was smiling brightly, but in the next picture the same elf was smirking at us! Another picture might show all elves looking directly at the camera, yet when we took another identical shot they were all looking away from the camera. Now as mischevious as these elves may be I've actually gotten quite attached to these little guys. These elves are a lot of fun (try taking their picture!) and will fit in with just about any kind of decor. Ok ,maybe not everything. I guess they don't really go with...... No, actually they do go with everything. :)

Knee huggers measure 7" when seated and 13" when stretched out. They also have working jingle bells on their caps. The standing elves have wooden feet that are really cute and are different and are 8 1/2 " tall.

These will be packed with love and shipped priority mail along with free delivery confirmation. I think these treasures can create precious memories for your family.
