Scunner vs. the Teddy Bear

Scunner the Grumpy Elf under a pile of cute, cuddly teddy bears
Scunner the Grumpy Elf under a pile of cute, cuddly teddy bears. Can you spot him?

Do you remember what teddy bears look like? Do you remember our new Scottish elf, Scunner?

He is a very grumpy elf that does not like Christmas.

Today I saw him shaking his head.  I stopped and I asked him what was wrong?

‘Och, these new toys that children want are rubbish.  iPods!  Remote control toys!  Walking, talking dolls!  Harumph!  They are not as good as the toys my dad used to make.’  He grumbled and stomped away.

As he stomped away, he kicked a remote control Monster Truck.  What he did not know was he also turned it on!

I watched as the truck drove straight into a pile of teddy bears.  These were piled up so high that they began to fall.

The biggest teddy at the top of the pile fell straight onto Scunner.  It was so big it knocked him over!

Then the remote control truck drove straight into his head.

Scunner is now a VERY Grumpy Elf!

He yelped and said some words I have never heard in the workshop before.

Then to make matters worse the Teddy said ‘I love you.  Do you want a hug?’ and started chasing after him!

Scunner was so angry!  I had to look away before I laughed.  It is wrong to laugh, but when I saw his face, I could not help it.

It made me think though.

Toys have changed quite a lot over the years.  On Christmas morning, you will be playing with toys that your parents could never have imagined.  (Sometimes I think they are a little jealous!)

Anyway, Scunner has a big bandage on his head now and a face like thunder.  I do hope we can cheer him up in time for Christmas.

We do not have very long to do that!

Merry Christmas!

Father Christmas

  17. Scunner seems so…
    He should be on rank F elf.
    Give him raisin cookies.
    Oh yeah, and if he say legos are not fun, then i’m gonna blow a fuse.
    No offense, Scunner.

  18. Scunner sure seems like he should be with the three stooges of elves(ARE there the three stooges of elves?) instead of in a Toy factory. But what’s REALLY in these days are legos.

  19. your scottish elf [i have heard this story in scunner vs. teddy bear]scunner is kinda grumpy and i think you should do something a bout it but i do not think you should get him into trouble

  20. i think scunner should have cookies and hot cocoa for a snake while listening to christmas music that cheers everyone up! love catherine

  21. hi i have been voting every day for who will guide santas sleigh but i dont know why Rudolph is in 3rd place dont people want Rudolph to follow on the tradition so remind all your friends to vote just tell them to go to Email Santa Http Reindeer

  22. This is to Jordan cause I have a elf on the shelf I got mine from ashleys but it is like a jr Santa some of them are bad mine was on the Christmas tree yesterday

  23. Dear Santa Claus all i want for christmas is a lap top because i will be able to play alot of games on a laptop and its no fair because my cousin got a laptop and she is only eight years old!!

  24. I think they will be playing with zap cars and all you have to do is say where you want to go and it will zap you there

  25. hmmmm…… I wonder maybe hmmm this is hard um maybe a talking pencile like wait no! a pencile when you say somthing it wrights it or oh! a robot take cooks a cleans and well chores!

  26. I think scunner just needs a little bit cheering up maby some of Mrs.clauses cookies and maby a candy cane but he is one funny little elf!Merry christmas

  27. I love you santa your the best i made some biscuits with my friend lily may mottershead looking forward for you opening your present at my house xx

  28. Merry Christmas Santa I hope I get my presents I put on my Christmas List I even put on there Santa Claus is the best and I love Rudolf.
    Lots Of Love

  29. Aww. I hope he feels better. I feel so sad for him. I want to give him a hug, and get him into the Christmas Spirit. You should take him with you on the sleigh!!!

  30. hello santa!how is mrs claus i hope you are having a fabby time at the north pole! so if you could bring my presents this year i would be so thankful! thank you for your time to listen
    katie etchellsxxx
    p.s the cookies i will put out will be made with lots of love and joy! happy holidays!

  31. It’s too bad Scunner doesn’t feel happy. Everybody should be happy when it’s Christmas!!! I also feel bad for Scunner because he has a bad head injury. 🙁 I think that kids will have toys like flying cars and remote controlled battery powered scooters. Also, everybody should get their own personal hovercraft with a built in phone, navigation, voice control, and Internet!! They should be able to chose their own color for it and get a personalized license plate. That would be so cool!!!
    Merry Christmas to all the elves, reindeer, and Santa Claus.

  32. Santa read our posts look what we wrote Scunner dosnt want to stay in the north pole why dont you omake a wrokshop near his family in scotland that will be easier because you can get the toys there

    i think we will be playing with more electronic stuff maybe a game that pops up on the air that you can touch you will never know

  33. If i saw Scunner i would slap his bum because Christmas is enjoyable for everyone and is the most bestest time of the year! SORT HIM OUT SANTA! TELL SCUNNER TO READ THIS! HHHHO

  34. I think children in the future will be getting toys like maybe flying remote contro cars that would be awesome but if they dont get what they want they should still be greatful because you elves work very very very hard to make these (im guessing)
    You need to ask Scunner why he doesnt like Christmas and whatever he doesnt like try to make it up to him because it musn’t be very nice to have a elf in the workshop that hates Christmas but just try to cheer him up.
    Have a great one elves
    and stay safe Santa
    Keep doing what you do best.

  35. hi santa this is Alex gekas wishing you mrs all the elves and the reinders P.S i will leave some ginger bread cookies and a glass milk

  36. Parents like scunner should be taught a lesson not to be jealous of their childreng’s advances in life…they must welcome the IT world;else they quit!!

  37. Merry Christmas Santa! Hope you are having a great December! I hope i am on the nice list! When I checked on the internet it said that i am on the nice list! I hope that that is true! I am SO happy that you have a blog Santa, that way, we can all see how you are doing and what YOU are doing instead of you knowing what WE are doing! Love ya Santa! Emily


  39. I am guessing that they will be playing something “future” toys.. Or maybe they just want a new cellphone or any electronic toys.. Too bad Christmas isn’t like before, but at least we have fun on Christmas! Merry Christmas, everyone!

  40. OUCH!How do you deal with all of that during this time of year!I would go crazy, that’s for sure! P.S. FROM WHAT I READ,THAT TEDDY BEAR IS SO ADORABLE!:D

  44. Hi in the future i think kids will be playing with joke books and ipods JUST JOKING!!! They will be playing with huge robots that talk to u and flying mobile phones!!! that would be so cool:) thanks for reading this bye lots of love Ella :):):):):):):):)

  45. Dear Scunner,

    You’ll be okay Scunner Christmas will cheer you up!! You have made Christmas such a Lovely Time before is how I am sure you need to understand that If you made my first toys that I appreciate you. I’m only 31 and your probably much much older than me in full though Holidays will cheer up for you. I have had it rough lately to and I have really been kinda grumpy myself. I have needed space and to be alone and just to have my own things. Though you understand that making toys at least keeps the kids happy with you. I need you to be okay.

    With Love,
    Elizabeth Estelle Baker

  46. I think scanner needs to learn that being an elf means smiling and being nice to everyone everywhere all the time!
    Thanks for the time,starpuff2467

  47. Maybe They Will Be Playing With: Monster Trucks, Webkinz, ipods? im not sure, But Im sure everyone will be happy at Christmas!

  48. that was such a funny story! I laughed my booty off! hahahaha hahaahhahahaa.

    I think it was so funny and Scrunner should get a little more into the Christmas spirit.
