Due to the overwhelming response last Christmas, we brought back 'The Original Elf Finder', for your entertainment purposes only. It is better then ever!

This holiday season – use the Original Elf Finder to see if Santa’s elves are close by and watching you!!

Elves are Santa’s little helpers – they make toys, feed the reindeers, and also tell Santa who’s been naughty and who’s been nice in time for Christmas!

Usually, Santa’s elves are invisible to us – only Santa, his reindeer, and Mrs. Clause can see them. However, with The Original Elf Finder you can detect if an elf is in the room or nearby. Listen to the sounds and watch the detection meter rise to know if an elf is near by.

Use the Original Elf Finder to search for hidden elves around the house. They may be hiding – so look for the elves on a table, look for elves by your bed, look for elves on a shelf, or even look for elves by the fridge.

Elves are nearby all year round so be sure to check each day. As Christmas gets closer, Santa sends more elves to keep his Naughty or Nice List up-to-date...


- Press the Play button and move around - Watch out! Elves might be right next to you!

Amazing app!!

App is great, it finds them while I am sitting or moving around. Everyone knows they are usually invisible so can sneak around, Using their magic of course but we know they are there!!!

Gets my kids ready for XMAS!!

Haha..I love this app. It gets my kids in the mood for Christmas. It’s funny to see them running around the house looking for elves (and to be honest, it keeps them from misbehaving too). My son loves the ROBOT meter, and my wife uses this as a compliment to our Elf on The Shelf doll.

Found my elves and reindeer!

It works! If you can't find your elves use this. I knew where my elves were but I used this to see if it works. And it did. Super fun!
