Our giant elf on a shelf was once just an idea which got the team here at The Prop Factory very excited for Christmas to arrive. The well-known mischievous little elf on a shelf ideas are all over social media with mums and dads sharing their creative ideas to amaze their children and bring the magic of Christmas to life, but how well would a giant one go down? 

We decided to build a giant elf on a shelf to be hired out for Christmas events across the UK. He's life-size and so is the perfect selfie buddy who's sure to get your guests talking! He was so popular with the team in our warehouse that we actually built him twice - twin elves! After a few prototypes our clever prop makers came up with a design that gave him movable arms and legs so you can change his position around. Sitting down is his comfortable place and needs no support. Standing is a little bit more tricky as he can't support himself, so would need to be propped up and secured but his elf slippers keep him upright just fine! 

Elf mischief started on December 1st with us creating a daily advent watching our elf get up to all sorts of mischief in our warehouse of wonders. The photo opportunities are endless - as you can imagine with so many props surrounding him! I thought we'd take a look back at his antics leading up to Christmas day and inspire you to invite him to your Christmas parties next year.
