Ugh. Hadn't heard about Elf On a Shelf until now, but not a fan. Reminds me of my wife's Über-creepy Madame Alexander dolls, which are thankfully locked in a suitcase out in the shed. I know they have collector value, but I'd feel better if we cleansed them with fire.
I googled "Elf On a Shelf" and found several references to "Elf On a Shelf Gone Bad" -- there is even a book named that, along with a few stories similar to yours. Not a big surprise that the elves are a hit on Facebook.
Thanks for the warning, Smyleegrl
