3 Alternative Ways to Use Elf on The Shelf

It’s that time of year, and Scout Elves all over the globe are preparing for Christmas. They’re making their travel arrangements, mapping out their hiding spots, and getting their little scout eyes ready, just in case Santa needs to check his list thrice on a few little boys and girls.

But what if your elf isn’t a typical scout elf? Reporting back to Santa is not the only thing scout elves can do. Check out these 3 alternative ways to use your Elf on The Shelf.

3 Ways to Use Elf on The ShelfBeing a scout elf is a tough job, but somebody’s got to do it! Learning Express is an official Elf Adoption Station so we get to know them very well. All they really want to do is spread Christmas cheer. Won’t you help them this Holiday and spread the magic through your house?

Adult Coloring Books

Adult Coloring Books

Coloring is not just for kids anymore. More and more parents are finding that spending a little time coloring is a great thing! But why is it so popular? Maybe adults are trying to get in touch with their inner child?

Nostalgia is a big part of our culture. People love thinking about when they were kids. Not only does coloring create a nostalgic feeling, but it improves your focus and relaxes your mind. One of our customers gave us this feedback…

“I was skeptical at first, but my wife insisted we try it. I started coloring and before I knew it, I looked up and I had been happily coloring away and having fun for over an hour. It was awesome! We just sat there and colored and talked!” – R Capps

No doubt you’ll see these things popping up everywhere this Christmas, and Learning Express has a huge selection. We’ve got Magic Garden, Mandala Magic, The Mindfulness Coloring Book, and more! Pick up a copy of one of our adult coloring books, put on some of your favorite relaxing music, and get zen.

Happy coloring!

Oyo Sports Figures

Oyo Sports Figures

(available only in Cary and Raleigh North Hills locations)

Oyo Sports Figures are in at Learning Express, and just in time for FOOTBALL SEASON! What are Oyo Sports Figures? They are awesome “Lego-like” minifigures staring your favorite sports athletes. These awesome collectible figures are great ideas for the sports fan at your house, whether it’s the kids, or even Mom and Dad!

We have lots of NFL Superstars including Cam Newton, Luke Kuechly, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson and more! We even have Sir Purr, the mascot for the Carolina Panthers (who are doing awesome this year). ;) We also have the Endzone playset so your characters can go head to head on the actual field. BUT, perhaps the COOLEST NFL pack we have is the Superstar blind pack. EVERY PACK comes with a prize, whether it’s another Oyo figure, or even a signed helmet!

More of a college fan? No problem, we’ve got you State fans covered with Mr and Ms Wuf, the Ultimate State Fan, Russell Wilson in a State suit, and more! (What about Carolina, Duke, and ECU??? I know, I know. but right now they don’t make them for those teams. Trust me, when they do, we’ll be on it. Stay tuned.)

Wait…wait…wait…football not your sport? What about Hockey? How many Caniacs do we have out there in Learning Express land? Just for you we’ve got your favorite players like Eric Staal and Cam Ward. We’ve even got Stormy the Mascot!

I could end this with a “Fall into Savings at Learning Express,” but it wouldn’t be nearly as fun as saying “Oyo sports figures are amazing! Start your collection today!”

See, that was much better. Happy shopping!
