The Elves Christmas Capsule

The weeks leading up to Christmas were always very busy, and Santa would always be grateful for any extra help.

'Wake up! Wake up!' shouted Emilie, running across Ollie’s bedroom and jumping straight onto his bed.

'What? What?' said a half a sleep Ollie, sitting upright from his sleep. ‘What’s happening?' as he peered around his room all confused, wondering what was happening.

'Oh you are funny, it’s me, Emilie!' Emilie laughed, as she was shaking him, trying to wake him up.

'You girls can be so annoying...' said a sleepy Ollie, as he was trying to lay down and go back to sleep.

‘Oh no you don’t,' said Emilie pulling Ollie's covers off him. ‘We have a very busy day ahead of us and we have to prepare, for all our friends coming from all over the North Pole.'

Ollie’s eye’s opened wide, as he remembered that all his friends were coming to see him. Within a minute he was washed, dressed and running down the stairs to eat his breakfast.

‘This has to be the most exciting day,' said Ollie, eating his breakfast in big spoonfuls.

‘Hurry up Emilie and eat your breakfast,' said Ollie. 'We need to run over the workshop and be there before all our friends arrive!'

Every year just before the big rush for Christmas, Santa’s elves would gather from all over the North Pole and come together to give Santa a helping hand.

'Come on Emilie, run faster!' shouted Ollie, as they ran over to the workshop. All of a sudden a layer of magical stardust, had sprinkled over the two of them.

'We’re flying!' giggled Emilie, as they joined hands and flew through the magical stardust. 'Everything is so sparkly and magical up here, make a wish Ollie and your dreams will come true.'

All of sudden, Ollie and Emilie came down with a big bump and found themselves strapped and sitting in the Christmas capsule, that was flying towards Santa’s workshop.

'Hi Ollie and Emilie,' said a choir of voices from the capsule. ‘We saw you running and thought we would pick you up, and bring you on board.’

As Ollie and Emilie turned around, the magical capsule was full of all their friends from around the North Pole.

'Oh this is so exciting,' said Emilie peeking out of the window. 'Santa’s going to be so excited to see you all.'

‘Look!' said Ollie pointing towards the workshop. 'Santa has opened the secret doors, ready for us to land. Would you like me to land the Christmas capsule? I know I can do it.'

'Oh Ollie, that would be just perfect,' said all his friends.

On top of the workshop roof, were two very large secret doors, that opened up towards the midnight sky. As the doors opened up, magical stardust burst into the sky, making a pathway for the Christmas capsule to land.

'Oh this is so magical,' said Emilie as they flew through the stardust and into the workshop.

As the capsule landed, a big puff of stardust pulled the doors closed, and out stepped Ollie and Emilie leading out the army of Santa’s helpers behind them, ready to get started.

Everyone was woken up very early, wondering what Ollie was laughing at so much when there wasn’t anything to be seen. Why was Ollie giggling so much?

Read on to find out what happens in the newest edition of Santa Fun Stories’!

​Baby Ollie’s Invisible Teddy Bear

'Good morning little Ollie Pops,' said Santa, as he walked into Ollie’s nursery to see what all the noise was about.

Ollie had woken up very early and was sitting in his cot laughing so loud, that he had woken everyone up.

'So Ollie Pops,' said Santa yawning away to himself still half asleep. 'What have you found so funny at this time of the morning?’

Ollie Pops was snuggled all cosy under his teddy bear blanket. Santa watched, every time Ollie peeped under the blanket, Ollie went into fits of laughter.

'What’s under your blanket?’ asked an amused Santa. 'Whatever it is, it’s making you very happy.'

As Ollie continued to peep under his blanket, he would roll onto his back kicking his little lags in the air with laughter.

'What’s all this giggling in here?’ asked Mama as she walked into the nursery. 'You’re a very happy little elf this morning Ollie Pops, but very noisy.'

Santa looked at Mama shrugging his shoulders, not knowing what was making Ollie laugh so much.

'What do you think is under there Mama?' asked Santa. ‘Shall we take a look?’
Image 02 Mama
As Santa and Mama peeped under Ollie's blanket, there was nothing to be seen, only his two little stripy bed socks that he had kicked off in the night.

'Well that’s very strange...' said a puzzled Santa, 'there’s nothing under there. Maybe his socks are making him laugh?'

Ollie sat up and peeped under the blanket once again. Straight away Ollie went into fits of laughter, looking at Santa and Mama and pointing under his blanket.

As Santa and Mama peeped under his blanket, once again there was still nothing to be seen.

Hiding under his blanket was Ollie’s special little friend. His name was Ted and he was the cutest, fluffiest, teddy bear. He had been playing peek a boo with Ollie and pulling lots of funny faces, making Ollie laugh.

Ted was a very special and magical teddy bear to Ollie, as they had known each other since Ollie had been born.

'Ted,' said Ollie. 'You are my best friend in the whole world.'
Image 03 Ollie
'Well that’s good!' said Ted laughing. 'Without you Ollie Pops, no one would know who I am, as I am invisible and no one can see me.'

'Oh you are so funny,' said Ollie. With that, Ollie and Ted went into fits of laughing once again.

Ollie is so excited when his magical hair bubble comes to visit him leaving him a bathroom full of magical surprises.

​Baby Ollie’s Shampoo Bubble

Every sunday evening just before Ollie’s bath time, he would get very excited, as he knew his little shampoo bubble would come to visit him while he was in the bath.

As Ollie sat playing in the bath with all his toys, the little hair bubble would float down, and sit itself over Ollie’s little curl.

‘Mama!' said an excited Ollie, pointing up towards the floating bubble, while his little feet splashing with excitement.

'Oh Ollie’, laughed Mama. 'It’s your little shampoo bubble come to see you.'

As the shampoo bubble placed itself on the top of Ollie’s head, it covered his one little brown curl, ready for it’s wash.

'Oh Ollie Pops,' said Mama laughing. 'You are the cutest little elf and you look adorable, with your little shampoo bubble sat on top of your head.’

As Ollie sat and splashed around in the bath, the magical shampoo bubble would get to work, shampooing and cleaning Ollie’s little curl.

Ollie would get very ticklish as the bubble would start to spin, filling itself with baby shampoo and tiny little bubbles, making Ollie’s little curl super clean.

'Mama, look!' said Ollie looking up towards the ceiling.

There were little bubbles everywhere. The more the magical bubble turned around, cleaning Ollie’s hair, the more bubbles would start to appear. Eventually they were filling the bathroom with tiny bubbles.

'Make lots of special wishes on all the bubbles,' laughed Mama, ‘and when they pop, you will be sprinkled with all your special wishes.'

'I made one wish Mama,' giggled Ollie with his eyes tightly shut.

'What’s your wish Ollie?' asked Mama.

​'My wish Mama,' said Ollie, is for all the children in the world, to make lots of special wishes on their shampoo bubbles and watch all their bubble wishes come true.’

The Two Magical Keys

Apptronics News

This week, Mama continues telling Ollie Pops the story of the two little magical keys, after he fell asleep before Mama could finish last week. What will happen in the story, and what are these two magical keys for?

Read on to find out in the newest edition of Santa Fun Stories’!

The Two Magical Keys

‘Hello Ollie Pops,’ said Mama reaching over the cot to give him a big kiss. ‘Have you had a nice sleep?’

‘Yep!’ Ollie said while nodding his head, giving a big yawn and stretching his arms above his head.

‘You are the cutest little elf Ollie,’ laughed Mama. ‘I started to tell you the story about the two little magical keys, and you fell fast asleep.’

Just before Ollie had fallen asleep, Mama had given him a beautiful present. They were the tiniest little pair of magical shoes.

‘Would you like me to start the story once again, now you are awake?’ asked Mama.

Ollie nodded his head and snuggled back under the covers, to listen to his story.

‘I shall begin...’ said Mama.
Mama Claus Image 02
Once upon a time, there was a little baby elf called Ollie Pops.

One day, Mama gave Ollie Pops a very special present. This was no ordinary present, but a very magical present.

As Mama helped Ollie Pops open the little white box that was decorated in shiny stars, he saw the tiniest little pair of shoes.

Ollie’s little shoes were very colourful. They were made of yellow, red and blue material and covered in little shiny stars. Ollie was so excited, he rolled onto his back and stuck his little feet into the air for Mama to put them on him.

Attached to the ends of each of Ollie’s shoes, were two very special stars that turned around. These two stars were very magical and as they turned, they would reflect beautiful colours of the rainbow where ever Ollie went.

Every morning, Ollie would sit comfortably in his little rocking chair next to his window.  His little legs would be stretched out and his shoes facing out towards the window.  He would love nothing more than to watch all the colours of the rainbow, reflect from his shoes over all the beautiful mountains.

As the colours swirled around the white snowy mountains, Ollie would watch, as all the animals would gather together and move towards the rainbow colours, which were coming from Ollie’s bedroom window.

As they reached Ollies window, they would all say a special good morning to Ollie Pops and blow kisses to him through the window. Everybody loved baby Ollie Pops.

‘Good morning little Ollie Pops,’ said Charlie the Squirrel, jumping through Ollie's bedroom window wiggling his brown bushy tail.

‘How are you this morning little Ollie?’ asked Charlie. ‘I’ve come to collect the magical keys from you.’

Ollie lifted his little legs up, and stuck his shoes out, so Charlie could remove the magical keys from Ollie’s shoes.

Under each of the moving stars were two little silver keys.

‘Thank you Ollie!’ said Charlie. ‘I can go and open the two magical doors now.’

Ollie Pops started to get very excited, as he watched all the animals follow Charlie the Squirrel to the two magical doors, just outside his window.

As the big doors opened, Ollie watched, as the most beautiful white horses and very large carriages flew out of the workshop and lined up in front of all the animals.

One by one the animals climbed onto the beautiful white carriages and were flown high  around the North Pole, giving them all a magical treat.

As Ollie waved and to all his lovely friends, he would snuggle down under his blanket and fall fast asleep for his little morning nap.

Apptronics News

Mama has a special present for little baby Ollie today. Although before he can get his special present, he must first get washed and dressed like a good little elf, once he wakes up from his lovely sleep.

Read on to find out what happens in the newest edition of Santa Fun Stories’!

Baby Ollie's Star Shoes

‘Good morning Ollie Pops! How are you this morning?’ asked Mama as she entered Ollie’s bedroom.

Ollie was just waking up from his sleep, where he had been dreaming about all the fun things in his little life.

‘Are you ready to get washed and dressed Ollie?’ asked Mama. ‘I have a very special present for you today.’

‘A present Mama?’ asked an excited Ollie.

‘As soon as you get washed and dressed like a good little elf,’ said Mama, ‘then you can have your present.’

Ollie Pops started to bounce up and down on his bottom, he was so excited. Mama lifted Ollie out of his cot and quickly got him washed and dressed.

‘Here you are Ollie,’ said Mama as she gave him a little white box, decorated with shiny stars.

As Mama helped Ollie open the little box he saw the most tiniest little pair of shoes.

‘Shoes!’ said Ollie Pops.

Ollie’s little shoes were very colourful. They were made of yellow, red and blue material and covered in little shiny stars. Ollie was so excited, he rolled onto his back and stuck his little feet into the air.

‘I take it, you would you like to wear them now?’ laughed Mama.
Image 02 Mama
Attached to the ends of each of Ollie’s little shoes, were two very special stars that turned around. These two stars were very magical and would reflect beautiful colours of the rainbow all around Ollie’s bedroom.

‘Your new little shoes are very magical, Ollie,’ said Mama. ‘Under each of the stars, are two tiny magical keys. Would you like to hear the story about the magical keys?’

‘Yes please!’ said Ollie Pops.

‘Okay, well snuggle into me and I’ll tell you,’ said Mama as she picked him and sat him on her lap. ‘Once upon a time…’

As Mama started to tell Ollie the story of the magical keys, she noticed he had fallen fast asleep in her arms. All the excitement had worn little Ollie out.

‘Oh Ollie Pops,’ laughed Mama, as she laid him back in his cot.

​As Mama kissed Ollie on his tiny cheek, she whispered ‘As soon as you wake up, I’ll tell you the rest of the little magical keys story. Sweet dreams Ollie Pops.’
