My Review of Jingles the Elf 
Jingles arrived on our doorstep while we were on vacation. Hubby opened the package and assured me that Jingles was just fine and had survived his trip from Santa’s workshop. I couldn’t wait to get home and meet Jingles!

When I got home, I found a gorgeous keepsake box that contained Jingles the Elf and a book. The book was beautifully illustrated. I immediately opened and started reading. It starts with the story of who Jingles is and how he arrived. He arrives on the first day of December, and each night, he gets hidden somewhere in the house. On Christmas Eve, Santa picks him up and takes him back to the North Pole. It is such a cute idea, and what a fun way to get the kids excited about Christmas.

Now, before I go any further, I need to say a few things. Yes, I am a Christian mom. We completely understand the true meaning of Christmas, and that it is the day that we celebrate the birth of our Savior. I do, however, also allow my children to believe in Santa. I think it’s important that they not only have a little fun, but they understand the importance of giving. And anything that can foster and encourage their little imaginations to grow and prosper is just fine by me. I absolutely respect any other Christian mom out there who does not allow their children to believe in Santa. I’m just not one of those moms.

Now, back to my review. It was obvious to all the kids that Jingles came early to play with us. He just couldn’t wait until December. And the kids were all ready to play his little game! The first night home, Jingles hid under the tv stand. Jace was the first one to find him the next morning. Each morning since then, the kids have taken turns finding Jingles somewhere new around the house. They love it! And Lucy just adores Jingles. She carries him around with her all day long, just loving on him. She’ll stroke his beard and say, “Oh, Jingles. You’re my bestest friend ever.” I think it’s going to break her heart when Santa takes Jingles back home to the North Pole.

There are several things that I really love about the Jingles The Elf kit: First of all, I love that encourages the kids to play together, and to use their imaginations. Next, I love the recipes, the craft ideas, and the other things the book includes. (My favorite section is “The Giving Tree” section. I’ve already promised the kids we will be doing that this year!) Thirdly, I love that Jingles encourages the kids to get excited about reading. Not only by reading the stories that are in the book, but also by “playing” along with the “A Book A Day” in December activity. Reading with my kids is one of my favorite parts of the day, and I always love when a product gets the kids excited about reading. And lastly, I love that the entire kit comes packaged in a beautiful keepsake box. It’s perfect for storing year after year, and Jingles will always be kept in a safe place, ready to play the moment you are!

If you have kids, and are looking for a fun way to count down the days until Christmas, I’d love to recommend Jingles The Elf to you!
