Recently, I visited my local store and I was so excited to find so many new toys that not only would make great stocking stuffers or gifts for kids, but they’d also make the perfect size for Elf on The Shelf props.

The best part is, these are all just priced at $1.25 each! So, trust me when I say, it’s worth making a trip to your local Dollar Tree soon!

By the way, did you hear that Dollar Tree is rolling back prices to $1 on hundreds of items in their stores?

Giant Rainbow Slinky: I loved playing with slinkies as a kid! This giant rainbow color spring would be fun for your elf to get “stuck in” and leave a fun toy for the kids behind.

Mini Board Games: I was probably most excited for these new mini board games at Dollar Tree. I found a 3-in-1 game board the has chess, checkers and backgammon. I also found tic tac toe and 4 in a row (essentially connect 4). And I even found a memory flash game (sort of like Bop It). All are fun ways to have your elf leave a game for the kids to play.

Invisible Clear Puzzle: I’ve always wanted to try one of these invisible puzzles and now I can for less than $2! Dollar Tree has these new clear puzzles that would make a fun challenge for your elf to leave for your kiddos.

Spirograph Drawing Set: I had one of these as a kid and loved it. Have your elf leave a message or drawing for the kids and then leave this fun toy behind.

Mini Hair Tools and Mini Sewing Machine: Um, how cute are these? They do have a battery compartment and should light up or make noise too. I found a mini hairdryer and a mini sewing machine. So cute!

Mini Dirt Bikes: These little dirt bikes are perfect for that motocross elf. They are the perfect size for elf on the shelf and come in a few different colors.
