This Year, Let’s Replace Elf on the Shelf with Krampus in the Corner


It’s not even Halloween yet, but we’d like to issue a public service announcement as the stores are beginning to stock their festive wares. Elf on the Shelf is seriously creepy. so let’s band together to push the little demon off it’s pedistal. And we have the perfect replacement, if you still need to spook your kids into good behaviour.


Krampus in the Corner is the first joint project of husband and wife team Justin and Lindsay Cristelli. Both are fans of horror and fantasy and love the legend of the Krampus, the Christmas Demon. In Eastern European lore, Krampus is the companion of Santa Claus. While Santa rewards the good children, Krampus punishes the bad and naughty kids! He has no mercy, and if you slip up he will beat you…or worse.The project includes this awesome Krampus doll, and illustrated story book.


Each plush doll is machine sewn from custom-printed cotton fabric and is finished by hand. They are 12 inches tall and feature a bundle of sticks for spanking and a frightened child in his basket! It is jointed at the hips and shoulders so it can be posed.

The husband and wife team are currently crowdfunding the project on Kickstarter. Let’s see if we can get Krampus in more corners this year!
