Shawn is a cute little elf that you can make to watch over the kids this holiday season. He is one of Santa’s helpers and comes every morning to make sure the kids are behaving well. At night he flies back to Santa to give his report. Shawn comes with a letter to tell all about him and what he does. Try to find him every morning, he likes to hide.

He’s knit in one piece with just a few tails to weave in. Guaranteed to be loved by all your little ones this season.
