Do you need help creating Christmas magic with your Elf on the Shelf? Then check out a few new toys to encourage mischief and magic in your home this holiday season. 

The Polar Props Cooking School Set comes with 20 mix-and-match pieces for setting a variety of elf scenes. Your elf could bake some cupcakes, video chat with an elf friend, stop for a lunch of burger and fries, and more. Scan the QR code for bonus content and scene set-up inspiration. The set includes a backpack, a cheeseburger, fries, a cup with straw, a stand mixer, a rolling pin and spoon, a fried egg, a saucepan, a baking tray and cupcakes, and a mini laptop.

Your elf can go for a ride on the Peppermint Train Ride. This set includes an inflatable train that your elf can really sit and ride in. Plus, there is a tunnel backdrop. This could be used as a way to welcome your elf at the beginning of the season or say good-bye as the elf travels back to the North Pole at the end of the season.

And if you need elf fun every single day, you’ll like the 24 days of action from the Sweet Spinners Advent Calendar. As with other Advent Calendars, kids open one numbered door of this calendar each day leading up to Christmas. Inside you’ll find nine Scout Elf and Elf Pets minis; six vehicles; five colorful trees; two traffic cones; a Ready, Set, Go sign; and a winner’s trophy. The calendar’s fold-down playmat is the perfect place for driving and setting up all the accessories and figures.
