I wanted to share a new Christmas tradition with you that we will be starting this year. I know that it's just barely November but I wanted to share with you now in case you have never heard of it before and wanted to start it with your family too! Before last year I had never heard of anything like it. It was too close to Christmas by the time I had heard about it and Dawson had just turned two so we decided to wait until this year start it.
We normally set up our Christmas tree on Thanksgiving after dinner. Or if we're feeling a little bit lazy we'll do it the day after Thanksgiving. This year we are going to be moving from California to Utah right after Thanksgiving so putting up the tree isn't going to happen until the beginning of December. And that's when we'll introduce the kids to Christopher Pop-In-Kins!
Christopher "pops in" every day in a new hiding spot to check on the kids and make sure they're being good. The kids are not allowed to touch him or else he will lose his magic and have to return to the North Pole to have it restored. I know Dawson is going to love trying to find where Christopher is hiding every day and if he starts to be naughty I will remind him that Christopher is watching and will tell Santa what he sees.
The Christopher Pop-In-Kins kit comes with the Christopher Pop-In-Kins doll, a book telling the story about Christopher Pop-In-Kins and why he visits children during the Christmas season, and a case that holds the book and doll. The doll is pose-able so you can move his arms and legs and pose him differently every day. And he is SO cute!!
I love the illustrations in the book, too. It's a cute story and I know Dawson and Ashlynn will love looking at the pictures while me or dada read the story to them.
The book is a hardcover which is great because it will last a long time. The elf is also very sturdy. This is a great buy because it will provide you with years of family fun and memories!
You can buy Christopher Pop-In-Kins from Amazon or head on over to the Christopher Pop-In-Kins site for a list of other places to buy him.
I'm going to have some more posts in December about what Christopher Pop-In-Kins has been up to at our house and how the kids are liking him so stay tuned for those! :) Will you be joining in on the fun this year?
