Ask most parents and they'll tell you - that darned Elf of The Shelf is the most stressful part of Christmas. Now, there's a Easter version, and it's here in CNY.

That's right - if you missed the stress of making sure your elf was doing something Pinterest-worthy every day during Christmas, you can enjoy the same fun with 'Peep on a Perch' - a little plush peep that watches your kids, and makes sure they deserve those jelly beans come Easter morning.

Do I sound cynical? Maybe I'm just a little bitter over the whole elf thing.

According to the description on, the peep comes with his/her own storybook. "The storybook, perfect for boys and girls ages 3 to 7, tells how the Easter Peep assists the Easter Bunny every year. The adorable Easter Peep helps decorate eggs and fill baskets, and sees all the acts of kindness a child does in the days and weeks leading up to Easter. The soft plush Easter Peep included in the set can be perched anywhere throughout the home. Children will be proud to have the Easter Peep watch them being good all day as they get ready for bed without making a fuss, help out around the house, and use good manners. And the more kindness the Easter Peep sees, the happier the Easter Peep gets!"

So, I guess you'll be re-perching the peep on the daily - but poses seem to be limited since we all know a peep has no arms or legs. Or a mouth, for that matter. So, basically, just put it on a different shelf and voila! DONE.

I could get behind that.

So parents, if you're looking to add another level of difficulty - I mean FUN - to your Easter, consider the Peep on a Perch. Otherwise, just get the kind you can eat.
