The 2003 Christmas comedy Elf stars Will Ferrell as Buddy, a regular guy who was raised in the North Pole as one of Santa’s helpers. Towering over everyone around him, Buddy finally realizes he may actually not be an elf and sets off on a fun-filled New York adventure to find his real family. Top-notch supporting cast includes Zooey Deschanel, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Ed Asner, Peter Dinklage, and Bob Newhart; directed by Jon Favreau.
The film was such a success that it spawned a Broadway musical, an animated TV special, and, of course, a respectable amount of holiday merchandise. The latter is what this post is most interested, as we wanted to show off the adorable toy replicas of characters from the laugh-packed film.
Funko’s POP! line of 3 3/4 inch vinyl toys includes Buddy the Elf, Papa Elf, and Jovie. All of these come packaged in a window box that doubles as a display case, and they are each a fun addition to your holiday display.
The remaining pieces of enchanting Elf merchandise are a two-pack from Funko’s VYNL line that includes a cartoon-styled rendering of Buddy and his Narwhal pal.
All of these will make the arrival of Santa Claus down your chimney that much easier to bear. Because Buddy and company are truly are pals you’d want to have in your life, this Christmas and all year long!
