Not content with a miniature ‘Elf on the Shelf’, one clever Dad decided to make himself into a real-life version – with hilarious results!

‘Fle’ is Father of four Joe Wynberg’s alter-ego elf name.  Joe’s wife, Megan, takes photos of Fle in all sorts of hilarious, compromising and sometimes downright perplexing positions.

Sharing their Fle photo shoots on Facebook, Joe and Megan are gaining a loyal following as viewers log on to see what Fle has been up to during the night.

With four kids, Joe told Buzzfeed Canada that finding time for the nightly shoot has been extremely tricky, but people waiting to see what Fle will do next, they feel a certain obligation.

“Now people are looking forward to it every night at around 8 or 9 o’clock to see what Fle is going to get into next,” he said. “I don’t think we were planning to all 24 days at first, but now we’re kind of forced to.”

Check out some of these hilarious situations that Fle has found himself in – we wonder what he will get up to next!

  • Love it. Im sure these photos will be giggled over for many years to come.


  • Haha absolutely laughed at the one where he is taped to the wall. Im sure all the local kids would think he is the best dad ever. Well done for going above and beyond the normal elf on the shelf


  • Hilarious! Very creative and clever. Lovely thing to share with the world so we can experience the joy too.


  • He well and truly got into the spirit of Christmas!


  • this is so funny. love the elf on the shelf idea, and how the kids go find it in the morning to see if it went and told santa the things you got up to. and how this dad got himself into those situatuons is totaly priceless… with soem help ofcourse.. but oh so funny.. wil definatly be doing this when my son gets older.


  • Well he certainly took it to another level…..prefer to look at the baby elf on the shelf!


  • Very comical – hope they own the house – big renovations coming up soon. Can’t decide if ‘Fle’ looks more like a young Dick Van Dyke, or a Bob Denver from Gilligan’s Island.


  • I think Fle has a little too much time on his hands. Elf on the Shelf became popular after my son had learned about Santa. I would have loved it when my son was younger and definitely would have gone at it with gusto.


  • Ha! Ha! That is surely a funny guy!! :-)
    No, I’m not using an Elf on the Shelf in my house. It’s a completely new tradition to me.


  • yeah a bit extreme for a laugh hey! i wonder what the wall looked like after all that tape came off it.


  • Hahaha our elf got “touched” so he is hiding in a cupboard… I mean the North Pole after sprinkling enough glitter… Magic dust to fly back and restore his magic


  • Lol, this couple is going through a lot of hassle to please their kids, or to please the public…and obviously they have great fun themselves :)
    We never did Elf on the shelf.


  • This dad surely would be the life of a party! Glad the wall did not collapse when he mounted Rudolph! ha ha.


  • Bahahaha what an awesome dad!


  • Some people have way too much time!!! Let’s hope they plan to redecorate soon with all that tape on the wall!!!
