Hello OP....so sorry about your bad elf experience...thought I would tell you a quick story about a toy that freaked ME out one night, lol.
My daughters both bought a "Furby" doll with birthday money one year. The Furby is a little furry animal-type doll that requires batteries and
makes sounds. At first it is gibberish (way creepy too!)...then in time, it starts saying real words and sentences. In time the kids got sick of
them and stashed them in a drawer. I forgot all about them.
Well, one night as everyone is sleeping...I awaken to hear a creepy little voice coming from my daughters' room! Armed with a bottle of hair spray
(and trying not to wake anyone else up) I went into their room (very scared by now)...and heard the 'talking' coming from a dresser drawer.
Apparently a Furby had fallen over inside the drawer and that movement had caused him to 'wake up' and talk.
I was VERY relieved because waking up to that had scared the cr*p out of me!
The next day both Furby's had their batteries removed.
Hopefully Christmas will divert your son's attention elsewhere and the elf will be history....good luck!
