Today Clumsy the Elf had the best job in the North Pole. He was the toy tester!
As you know, the elves make great toys.
The toys work very well – well most of the time they do!
Clumsy started by testing remote control helicopters. One he tested seemed to have a mind of its own. Clumsy steered it left. It soared up. He steered down. It swooped to the right. Uh-oh! It flew right out the workshop window!
Clumsy raced after it. He chased the runaway toy as it went around the yard. He jumped up and tried to grab it. But he missed and plopped belly-first into the snow. The toy flew away from him again and again.
Clumsy got an idea. He remembered there was a butterfly net in the shed! So he grabbed it and started swinging.
He collected 14 drummers drumming, 2 turtle doves, 6 candy canes and a string of Christmas lights in his net. But no helicopter!
Blitzen stopped to watch. Clumsy swung again and the net got tangled in the reindeer’s antlers. Oops!
A Toy Tester Tragedy!
Clumsy got his net free just as the toy flew straight into MY house. He chased after it and kept swinging! One swing knocked over our Christmas tree. Then another scooped up the sugar cookies Mrs. Claus was cooling by the window. She was NOT happy!
Clumsy could not stop to explain. He had to follow the helicopter back outside.
It finally slowed down by the barn. Clumsy held his breath. He swung his net. Hooray! He caught that crazy helicopter! What a relief!
P.S. Between Peanut and toy helicopters, I think Clumsy has had a rough week. Have you ever had a rough week? Have you ever had to chase something? You can click here to tell me about it or, scroll down to see what other people have written!
A right jolly old elf, in spite of myself. I love Christmas, children, the North Pole, Mrs. Claus, elves, reindeer, snowmen & the list goes on!

I’m having a rough week this week. Last week I only did half of the work I was suppose to do for my job. So this week I’m making a big effort to do everything I’m suppose to do and be a good boy for a change. Althougth I do have a tendency to complain a little to much.
Hi santa why do you have a toy tester
Hi Santa I’m going to put cookies and milk for you and food for raindeer and put my elf on the shelf I like him alot so please email me. Back
for christmas i want a bicke
good day santa can i talk with elfs now
Thats a very funny story but you shouldn’t be mean to clumsy it wasn’t his faught that the helicopter went all over the place. He was just trying to make Santa happy.
Have you had a rough day like clumbsy the elf I had its a,long story
Hey, Rudolph, you are never going to beat Santa at video games so please don’t try.
Well, i hurt my ankle and tripped alot.
Yes I have. I was in school and I could not find anyone to hang out with. When it was time to pair up for partners no one wanted to pick me. When I got home I turned out being sick with a lot of homework to do. This was one of the worst days ever!
it would be very fun my elf did not move
i just got it today.
I sometimes have toys break.But,i just move on,knowing ill get lots of cool stuff for Christmas!
I would love to make toys but i think it would be difficult to tell and see which toy parts go where.
I have a helicopter toy and one day whenever I press the butten for it to go right it woud go straight and usually that day it would crash into the wall
i think it would be fun to be a toy tester but i would stay away from everything breakable and merry christmas
I have had a rough week trying to keep friskie my kitten out of the christmas tree! She has already broke 4 ornaments.
