The Toy Tester

Today Clumsy the Elf had the best job in the North Pole.  He tested toys!  As you know, the 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.   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!  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 ’s antlers.  Oops!

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!

Merry Christmas!

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!

  23. 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.

  24. 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

  25. 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.

  26. 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!!!!!

  27. 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

  28. i think it would be fun to be a toy tester but i would stay away from everything breakable and merry christmas

  29. I have had a rough week trying to keep friskie my kitten out of the christmas tree! She has already broke 4 ornaments.
