Elf on the Shelf: Toy Inventory.
This year, our Elves were asked to take inventory for Santa.
They left a note that said, “Instead of making toys this year, Santa has asked us to do an inventory”.
What Pepper is referring to is when, last year, he set up his toy shop at our house and made toys to help complete what Santa needed for Christmas.
This year, he put down his work apron
and he and his sister, Winter, went to work cataloging and counting all the toys.
Taking inventory of toys for kids worldwide can be a daunting task—
but with some popcorn, candy, and pretzels it becomes a little more enjoyable.
Some of the toys they counted were just so cute!
My kids and I loved looking at the variety.
They even added a Christmas tree for a little festive touch to the scene.

How I think our elves put together this Elf on the Shelf: Toy Inventory scene…
Pepper and Winter set out the toys they were supposed to inventory.
Then they sat at their table and got out their laptop, tablets, and cell phones.
Then they got some treats and began counting.
It looks like it came together pretty simply and probably didn’t take a lot of time to set it up. I bet they got the Mini Brands on a deep discount too, because these little toys can be pricey.
This scene was really fun for my kids to look at and investigate. They spent at least an hour or two cumulatively looking at the scene.
My eight-year-old and three-year-old were especially enthralled by the toys. My ten-year-old really liked the toys that were geared more toward him.
These toys will likely be saved and used in future Elf on the Shelf scenes. For example, I could see a Star Wars scene, a dinosaur scene, and a Toy Story scene possibly coming in the future days or years.
