The elves are getting caught by children from December 1st . Then, once into your home, take care of yourself . These little cute but naughty elves will strive to play tricks. Children will firmly believe that they are real. On December 24th, they will return to the North Pole to help the toys manufacturing for next year. At Brin de Folie, they are there all year around. We had special permission from Father Christmas that allows us to keep the naughtiest ones to teach them " good manners " !
