If your family is ready to shelf the Elf this holiday season, try a new holiday tradition with Reindeer in Here. The book and plush gift set comes with a plush reindeer and a hardcover book that explains the story of how Reindeer in Here works. Children receive the reindeer to cuddle and play with during the month of December until Christmas. But unlike other plush holiday toys, the reindeer hasn't been sent by Santa to spy on the children and make sure they're behaving. The reindeer is simply visiting children early to help Santa get to know each girl and boy better so that Santa knows what presents to bring on Christmas Eve. On Christmas Eve, children place their reindeer under the tree, and the reindeer flies off with Santa on his sleigh until next December when it will return once again.
The book, Reindeer in Here: A Christmas Friend, is written by Adam Reed and illustrated by Izzy Bean.
For parents who are tired of coming up with clever elf shenanigans, Reindeer in Here will be a less stressful holiday tradition, and kids will like that they can actually cuddle and play with the cute reindeer toy.
The book also celebrates a message of "different is normal". Each child has different hopes, dreams, and wishes, which is why Santa needs help getting to know all of them. And the book shows diversity not just in the pictures of the children but in the illustrations of the reindeer, too. In fact, it's the smallest reindeer with two uneven antlers that has the idea to send reindeers early to the children, and it's this reindeer character that kids get in the plush.
Reindeer in Here is for ages 3 and up, and will be a fun holiday tradition to start with your little ones.
You can also purchase just the book or just the plush reindeer.
