The kids are my greatest critics – they’re as sharp as knives, with imaginations bigger than anything else in the world. If I get their seal of approval, then that’s very high praise indeed …
This is what the grown-ups say …
"We’ve just received our Elf letters. Thank you so much. They really are superb. "

"Our special delivery arrived today… WOW! Thanks for the wonderful treat to share with the kids at xmas…beautifully presented, and gorgeously crafted. Thank you so much! Can’t wait to see their faces when they open the letters! I bet my 5 year old will be quite happy to practice her reading this December ;o) "

"Izzy loved Elfie’s letters. The excitement of receiving one every day was very sweet indeed, and great for her reading practice! "

"I’m your biggest fan! They’re brilliant and they really made our build up to Christmas really special! It’s making me want it to be Christmas again already!!! We mainly read ours in the evening as it wasn’t rushed then. Some mornings Elfie would leave a clue for the letter, or sometimes they would excitedly come home from school to find their letter had been delivered! Our kids were hooked. I really like the mention of hot berry juice and freshly baked gingerbread. You can almost smell Christmas when you read this! I also love the fact that the elves have different characters and traits that individual children can relate to. Last year, Olly thought he was like Marty and Megan related to Lily. They even tried to guess which elves made what in their stockings on Christmas day! "

"Elfie’s letters were very popular in my house, Ella was very excited and it was the 1st thing she looked for as soon as she opened her eyes each morning! (Even on a sleepover she phoned to make sure her letter had been delivered!) It really made the run up to Christmas that more magical! x "

"My girls are 9 and 7 years old. They utterly believed an elf was delivering the letters and often wrote a Christmas card back. My girls would find the letters from Elfie on the Christmas tree each morning and my youngest daughter would leave the response to Elfie there of a night. She then started leaving cards for him in a trail to her bedroom. She was desperately hoping to see him. I didn’t do advent calendars this year so would leave little gifts inside the envelopes. These included fancy ribbons, Christmas decorated sweets, decorative pens etc. The girls are of an age that they could read the letters themselves so they would read to me all the news Elfie had to share. I also discovered my youngest had informed the school deputy head at great length about Elfie and how she was writing to her and her sister everyday! It has been a wonderful shared activity. The girls would look for the letters each morning and be excited to read about Elfie’s news and see the gifts she’d left them. They would take it in turns to read the letters and generated a lovely buzz of excitement as it led up to Christmas.Many thanks! "
