This was our first year with the kindness elves and both my boys (3.5 and 1.5) absolutely loved finding them each morning leading up to Christmas. I ordered the package that included the accessories and also ordered a additional doll. At the time of ordering we had the choice of a bonus gift. We chose the baby kindness elves and they were ADORABLE! Each of the dolls are great quality and the perfect size. The boys loved reading the book and getting involved with the different activities each day. They are still a little young for some of the suggestions but I’m glad I’ll have good ideas as they get older. Due to COVID-19 I’ve been reluctant to allow them in large groups with kids their own age and as a result they have been home and not getting as much socialization as I would like. The kindness elves have helped the boys think of others during time when they could easily be consumed by their own wants. I also really appreciated being able to model love and kindness during a time in the US that has been emotionally charged for many citizens due to social justice and political issues.
Thank you so much for such a sweet idea and high quality product! We can’t wait to do it again next year and add some new dolls to our collection.
Excellent resource. Have only read the book and intend to introduce the elves when back in the classroom.
My littlies love this and is easy to incorporate in programme.
These little elves are adorable! The kids loved them and took every kindness suggestion to heart. There were so many ways to tie these kindness elves into our curriculum while also having a blast (beware you might become addicted buying miniature things to put in your elf scenes because it is all so cute). The book was beautifully done! It was wonderful to have elves not connected to the North Pole because now they can come back any time through the year - Valentine’s Day, Random Acts of Kindness Week, Earth Day to teach the kids about being kind to the Earth, etc. The accessory pack with the pre-made kindness suggestions was handy especially for the mornings where their wasn’t enough time to come up with a plan. The eColouring book was also a great investment for the classroom and the kids were so excited each time the elves brought us a colouring page. The students absolutely adored being able to write the elves back with postcards. “The elves” had to build them a bigger stand alone mailbox because there were so many letters coming in. A future product I would love to see (and buy) would be a digital download for more postcards - the kids loved that the postcards looked real on both sides but in a classroom we blew through the ones in the accessory pack so it would be great to be able to print and cut more. The only thing that wasn’t perfect was that myself and the other teacher both noticed the clothes on some of the elves (1 from each kit) didn’t have a finished edge on the knitting at the shoulder and the hem of their tops. We added some hot glue to make sure it didn’t start unraveling. Of course this could have just been an error in the manufacturing but given the cost, and especially with the exchange from pounds to dollars, we did note that this was a small issue. With that said it will not stop us from buying more elves in different colours to visit through the year. This is a wonderful investment for a classroom and will get lots of use every year for many years (probably Pre-K to grade 3 would be most beneficially although our elves did give challenges to the older grades too). Great service and fast delivery (even across an ocean during a pandemic it came quick).
Really lovely idea, can't wait to introduce it to my class
