    The elf is a big hit with the kids. I was annoyed to find out, after I got home, that if you get a girl elf, the skirt is not included and must be purchased separately. Of course the kids immediately noticed that she did not look like she did in the book and wanted to know why. They seem satisfied with the explanation that she does not always wear it because she thinks she can hide better without it.

    This product is not available! Not happy with Barnes & Noble

    This product is not available! Not happy with Barnes & Noble...was told my orders would be shipped within 3 days. On day 8 I receive emails stating that my orders were cancelled, that this product is unavailable until February 2013. In reading other reviews, I too would have been upset with the fact that the skirt didn't come with it.

    DOES NOT COME WITH SKIRT

    I assumed that since the elf was a girl, that she automatically came with the skirt. We were disappointed when we opened the package to discover that she did not have a skirt. What bothers me is that the description should mention this. Especially considering that the box you receive and the picture shown indicate differently. The box I received has wording in the upper right hand corner that reads "skirt not included". The picture shown on the website does not match it. I may not have ordered it, if I had known. There are subtle differences for the sexes, tiny little silver painted on earrings and red lips.

    Shipping took a little bit longer than expected

    The product itself was perfect, but shipping took a little longer than expected. A little over 2 weeks

    I have previously purchased the boy for my new grandbabies once

    I have previously purchased the boy for my new grandbabies once they are older. This year I purchased the girl. Well, Barnes & Noble fails to tell you in the description that the skirt is not included. So now I have to order the skirt separetely and pay for shipping. Not a good way to do business B&N!

    The Start of a New Tradition

    The Elf on the Shelf was given as a Christmas gift for our almost 2 year old niece. Her parents were delighted that they could start a new Christmas tradition with her for Christmas "2014". It was a big hit.

    Great gift

    This was something my adult daughter wanted but would not treat herself to. So, Santa brought it for Christmas and she LOVES it!

    The concept is great...we started it two years ago with our little 4-year old.  She is now six and wants a little girl elf so I buy one but decided to go ahead and order another one from B&N so that both daughters could have one of their own.  I ordered it on 11/20 and it is still not here.  We were hoping to have it in time for the elves to arrive by Thanksgiving.  Horrible service!!!!!

    Wonderful for little kids

    My daughter is 4, she LOVES the Elf. It would be nice if you didn't have to buy her skirt separately though. But it was fun to have her around. My daughter is sad she left and we are looking forward to next year's visit. :) I recommend this product. What a nice way to start your own tradition.

    Love the book

    This is a very cute idea to make an exciting holiday tradition for kids. It doesn't actually have any affect on their behavior, but it was lots of fun to find the elf every morning.

    A fun new tradition for the family

    We hadn't bought an elf yet because I didn't want to pay $30 for one. Then I found this girl Elf marked down to $13 and couldn't resist buying one. I would highly recommend one of these. It's a great family tradition to start!
