About Christopher Pop-In-Kins
In 1985, Flora Johnson of Atwater, Ohio introduced the world to a very special elf named Christopher Pop-In-Kins. Based on her family tradition from the 1960's, Christopher Pop-In-Kins has been creating Christmas memories for over three generations. Christopher Pop-In-Kins loves children and longs to visit real boys and girls. Santa grants his wish and appoints Christopher "Santa's Very First Children's Elf". Popping in for a visit from late November through Christmas Eve, Christopher fills your home with fun and laughter. This one-of-a-kind Christmas tradition includes a special game of holiday hide and seek. Where will Christopher pop up next? "Up on the mantle? Atop the bookshelf? High on the draperies? Now where is that elf?"
In 2008, the Christopher Pop-In-Kins was redesigned and the book was re-illustrated. But the story and tradition remains the same.
Each Book Set contains a hardcover, beautifully illustrated 12" X 9" storybook; a safety-tested 9" vinyl and cloth, bendable Christopher doll, and a sturdy "home" for generations of storage. Retail price is $29.95.
Last year, iParenting said this about Christopher Pop-In-Kins:
"This is one of the BEST Christmas toys I have seen in ages. It provides great family interaction and encourages new holiday traditions! The toy with story A+++!!!"
"Delightful! Full of fun! What a wonderful new tradition for our entire family! We reviewed this product (in October) and my child cannot wait until Thanksgiving to begin our new tradition.
As a parent, I love that the book is clear and that children "must never ever touch him. For if they did, Christopher would lose his magic." My child knew it was clear and they would not be permitted to play with Christopher.
The illustrations of this book are gorgeous. They are bright and friendly. The cover is sturdy and brilliant. Christopher, the doll, is well made and a great size, just as we would imagine a real Santa's helper would be.
This is hands-down my favorite product I have reviewed. Our family thoroughly enjoyed this.
Many times, after reviewing a product, we pass the test-products along to other friends and family. This one we will not. Selfishly, we will keep it for many years to come! (Although, we will tell them how great this is!) We cannot wait until Thanksgiving to begin "for real".
Thank you for a great product! It will be very successful!"
