There is nothing wrong with an Elf on the Shelf playing games.
We’d just hope that these Elves are playing appropriate games.
In an appropriate way.
This little guy was discovered in front of a Scrabble board.
That, in itself, was not the problem.
The problem was that he was playing a late night game of Strip Scrabble with Dora the Explorer and Baby Alive.
Clearly, spelling is not Baby Alive’s strong suit.
And even though Scrabble is typically seen as an intellectual’s game, this cerebral Elf insisted on tawdry tile placement and the kind of language that respectable dolls like Dora should not be familiar with.
True gamers may have the desire to compliment his ability to stick to a theme and keep hitting those Double Word Scores. But that’s not the point, people.
The point is that two innocent dolls were lured into the kind of Game Night that starts with popcorn and pleasantries, but ends with Fifty Shades of Grey-type experimentation with riding crops and safety words.
This is one filthy-minded trickster of an Elf who deserves to be locked out of all game closets for the foreseeable future. Starting? Now.
