The Jump Jump elves are from the Holiday House Radio Show in the 1940's. It was a popular children's show that ran from Thanksgiving through Christmas with many adventures for the elves to into trouble. JumpJump was the make-believe Elf that belonged to Mary Holiday. Together, Mary and her husband, Harry Hickcox formed the cast for this children’s radio program sponsored by Holiday House. The Wee Whimsies were also produced by Holiday House and are of the same type characters.
A wonderful little treasure from memories of the past!
