Me personally, during christmas times, me and my friends have no idea what fun activites our elves may do. Snowflake( my elf) and Kinsley (friends elf) both had an amazing time with all the insporation and creativness this app gives. I love elf on the shelf and i personally think this app needs 5 out of 5 stars!☆☆☆☆☆
It's an appropriate app for younger ages, besides that it makes any time of the year full of joy! Elf on the Shelf is so cute, creative, and it brings family and friends together 💗🎄🎅🏻

So this app by far I would love to give five stars to however I'm gearing more towards almost no stars only because as wonderful as the ideas are with those that have more than one Elf or more than one child like I with six children and by the time you get everybody to bed and then you have to worry about doing these fantastic ideas with the elves, it can become very very time-consuming almost even frustrating to the point where you don't have a lot of the supplies that they require of these elves ...they don't sell the cute little books that they have they don't sell the little cute campfires had they sold all of that it would make it easier but they don't

This is the first year i have done Elf On The Shelf. I am going to make this a tradition that's for sure, especially with the help of this app. It has many great ideas, some for sure i would have never thought of. I also enjoy how they add new ones seems like twice a month. I will definitely recommend this to friends and family. Thank you this awesome app and please keep it going, as I will need for years to come.! Thanks again
