I set this up for the kids to find...

If you're not familiar with the "Elf on the Shelf," it's a relatively recent Christmas toy phenomenon. The elf is supposed to be Santa's scout who reports on your child's behavior nightly. Each night while the kids are in bed, you move the elf around the house for them to find in the morning.

My 6-year-old daughter is really into it and believes the elf is magic. She thought the Batmobile setup was funny and later asked me to photograph it for Grandpa. My 4-year-old son, however, was upset that this elf was riding his Batmobile toy and wanted him out right away.

All you need is the Mattel 1/12 Batmobile and some cotton balls. The Batman in the driver's seat is a plush ornament that my wife found at Target this week. He's kind of a cross between the '66 and standard comic Batman.

Apparently started in 2005-- I thought I remembered it as a kid so there must be something similar- regardless, great setup!

Couple more, just the Batman related ones. We have a very active elf.

Ha! I've seen scores of humorous Elf on the Shelf setups, and depicting the Elf in mortal danger is a common theme. Same Elf-Time...

And then there's the real life Elf on a Shelf as shown here by WGN Chicago's Pat Tomasulo on his Man of the People comedy show (now over unfortunately).
