Growing up we always knew that Santa "sees you when you're sleeping, knows when you're awake" but recently more agents have been added to monitor children's behavior. Elf on the Shelf has become very popular in recent years but the elf is always making messes and just becoming a lot of work. So now there's an alternative to Elf on the Shelf called Santa's Lazy Gnome.

The Lazy Gnome is just that a little gnome that sits in one place never making messes or moving. The gnome however does still report back to the big guy in the north pole about the children's behavior. The gnome even comes with a book explaining his mission for Santa looking for who to put on the nice and naughty list.
