In households all around the world, as children sleep soundly in their beds in the lead-up to Christmas, a small and VERY cheeky elf comes to life! This elf might look like one of Santa’s little helpers, but he’s actually on a mission to cause as much festive mayhem as possible — much to the delight of expectant kids!
Each night, the elf finds new ways of revelling in the joys of Christmastime, with little regard for the usual household rules by which children must abide.
