Professional Elf Surgery

Welcome and how FabYULEus you found us!

Santa demonstrates the usefulness of the FabYULEus Elf Duo service in this short video.
When Chuckie and Bella visited our workshop, they were in an overly-loved condition.

If your elf could use some repair or if you’d like your elf to stand and strike amazing poses like the FabYULEus Elf Duo, you’ve come to the right place! FabYULEus Elf Duo has been retrofitting and repairing elves since 2014. We look forward to helping you as well. Your Christmas Elf can be REPAIRED, REBODYED, RETROFITTED, or any combination of these using our Patent Pending methods. Options are explained below:

We have helped many elves over the years!

REPAIR – We repair minor damage such as, but not limited to, patching small holes, stitching holes, removing minor stains, shave pilling, etc.

REBODY – We replace an elf’s worn-out body with a new one if it was badly damaged. Damage such as, but not limited to, burns, large tears, major stains, etc.

We can RETROFIT your elf for posing and standing.

RETROFIT– We have a Patent Pending way to retrofit the inside of an elf’s body, which allows easy positioning and standing. Frustrating late nights posing the elf are about to be a thing of the past! Once retrofitted, the elf can stand when propped up against an object, or doll shoes can be used to help balance the elf to stand independently.

We can RETROFIT & REBODY your elf!

How it works:
Step 1) VISIT. Come vist our Etsy Shop: www.etsy.com/shop/FabYULEusElfDuo

Step 2) PURCHASE. Select the option for your Elf Surgery: Repair, Rebody, Retrofit, or any combination. If purchasing a rebody, select the new body color.

Step 3) SHIP. Please message our shop after purchase. You will receive the Elf Hospital address where you may ship your elf. We strongly recommend purchasing tracking and signature delivery when shipping your elf. We would be devastated if your elf was lost in the mail system.

Retrofit & Rebody

Step 4) SURGERY. While we perform our Patent Pending Method, each elf spends around three to five hours in surgery. Costs include all materials, labor, and shipping within the United States.

Step 5) HEART. Each elf is stuffed with a magical Christmas heart, so their magic reemerges after surgery.

Step 6) HOME BOUND. Upon completion, we will ship your improved elf back to you and supply tracking and insurance. In an attempt to preserve the environment, we recycle packaging materials when possible.

Step 7) GET CREATIVE. Show your children what their new elf can do! Frustrating late nights posing the elf are about to be a thing of the past!

Retrofit & Rebody

Step 8) STORAGE. We recommend straightening the wires inside before changing the pose each night and before storing the elf. Please straighten the wires in what we like to call the T-position. It is best to position the arms horizontally or straight out away from the body, as shown by the horizontal line in a capital T. Ensure the legs are vertical and in a standing position, as shown by the vertical line in a capital T. Remove any remaining bend in the wire. Unless the wire is straightened after each pose, repeated bending will cause the wire to snap, coil inside, and become less stable.

Retrofit & Rebody

Step 9) HELP. Shall you order a rebody, pieces of the donor elf doll are not wasted. The spare heads are donated. Two, thoughtful women are providing their valuable time to make dolls for children in need. More information on this to come. The below photo shows one box, out of many boxes, of leftover heads from this season alone.

Heads are donated to dollmakers whom craft dolls for children in need.

Shall you find purchasing our surgical assistance in our Etsy Shop out of your budget, not to worry! We have created a YouTube tutorial that walks you through each and every step. *UPDATE: Our apologies, THE VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED; however, we are thrilled to announce that our Retrofit and Rebody Methods are officially PATENT PENDING!

We were excited about the Elf Mates released by Elf on the Shelf in 2019; however, we were not impressed with their “flat feet” and printed outfits. We rebodied and retrofit all three.

Restoring the Magic of an Elf

It is unfortunate that this sweet little elf had burn marks on his white mittens, as well as staining on his white bib and hat. That, however, is nothing that can’t be resolved by the FabYULEus Elf Duo! As a way of restoring some glimmer and magic back to his life, we decided to replace his white trim with lime green trim. We are confident that The Grinch would approve of our color choice. His look was completed with a matching mistletoe embellishment and retrofitted for standing and posing. He now looks as spiffy as the day his family adopted him from the store.

Taylor’s Unique Christmas Plaid Elf

There is no doubt that this is a unique and special elf. He wears a one-of-a-kind black and red Christmas plaid jumper. In addition to being retrofitted for standing or posing, FabYULEus Elf Duo hand-sewed his plaid jumper. This little elf was commissioned for Taylor, who is a very special person to the FabYULEus Elf Duo. There is great anticipation in this little elf’s heart as he makes his journey to his new home to meet Taylor.

Have a TOW-rific Holiday

꧁ 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖊𝖗 ②④ ꧂

‘Twas the twenty-forth,
And time for farewells,
When tragedy struck.
Our car was unwell.

And lucky enough,
We found a mistle-TOW.
Now we’re hooked up,
So it’s time to go.

When Santa arrives,
We must fly away.
But first we’ll wish you,
A TOW-rific Holiday!

The Results Are In!

꧁ 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖊𝖗 ②③ ꧂

Tonight is the night,
It’s finally come!
The results are in,
Please roll the drum.

Santa’s final list,
Appears on the board.
Those who’ve been nice,
Will get a reward.

The reward of toys,
Left under the tree.
The ones requested,
While upon his knee.

But we must remember,
Santa can change his mind.
So clean up your room,
If you’d be so kind.

Put away your things,
And clear a safe space,
So Santa won’t trip,
And fall on his face!

And aced chemis-TREE.
It’s time for some fun.
And joyous Christmas glee.

Gingerbread Pics on Instagram-GRAHAM

꧁ 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖊𝖗 ②① ꧂

In the gingerbread bakery,
We were baking spirits bright,
Mrs. Claus would be so proud,
How can we share this delight?

Once the baking had finished,
The social posting began.
Sharing our gingerbread pics
With our friends on Insta-GRAHAM!

What’s The Return Policy?

꧁ 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖊𝖗 ②⓪ ꧂

There are many presents,
Under our Christmas tree.
They are addressed to us,
What’s inside? We will see.

To our shock and dismay,
Once we opened the box.
Our presents consisted,
Of UNDERWEAR and SOCKS!

Merry Grinchmas

꧁ 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖊𝖗 ①⑨ ꧂

The story by Dr. Seuss,
Where the Grinch is a villain.
The first he stole Christmas,
Was in 1957,

But did you know his real name,
Is lawfully Ethan Who?
He lived on Mt. Crumpit,
Until he was almost 62.

Adopted by Who sisters,
After his mother passed.
He left Whoville at age 8
Once he became an outcast.

These are all Festive Facts,
About our unpleasant friend.
Who later became a hero,
Upon this story’s end.

Mooy Christmas

꧁ 𝕯𝖊𝖈𝖊𝖒𝖇𝖊𝖗 ①⑧ ꧂

This ain’t our first rodeo.
We’re roped into it.
Mechanical bull ridin’,
Is incredi-BULL, we admit.

Join us at the honky tonk.
Where there ain’t no quitters,
We are brave, amazing, strong,
and also great bull-SITTERS.
