The Elf on the Shelf has become an increasingly popular gimmick in recent years as parents convince their children that an all-knowing elf could report their bad behavior to Santa Claus. Now a new trend has emerged as parents stage photos of the elf meeting his match in the shape of Elsa from "Frozen."

The trend appears to have originated on Pinterest.
