Where it all began.

In December 1952, the same month that Patricia Anne Cook was born, a children’s song called Tip Toe The Birthday Elf was released in the USA. Patricia’s older brother Peter John had been gifted a copy of the 7” on vinyl and for as long as Patricia can remember, she and her family would sing Tip Toe the Birthday Elf every year on the eve of their birthdays.

By the time Patricia started her own family in 1976, the vinyl record once owned by Peter John had been long lost, however Patricia continued to sing the song to her own four children and their many friends on the eve of their birthdays, year after year.. and so the tradition continued.

In 2012 when Patricia’s eldest child Virginia gave birth to a daughter of her own (and after many years of searching online) Patricia managed to find a digital copy of the song on the internet. Of course compared to modern standards, the sound quality of the 1952 version was poor and lyrically the song was considered to be very old fashioned.

The Tiptoe project.

Upon hearing the original crackly 1952 version of Tip Toe the Birthday Elf, Virginia resolved that the song should be modernised, re-recorded and shared with a new generation of children whom she believes will love Tiptoe as much as her own family has for more than three generations.

Furthermore, Virginia’s own long-conceived ideation of the Birthday Elf’s physical characteristics piqued her enthusiasm for bringing a tangible, huggable version of Tiptoe the Birthday Elf (the character) to life. In pursuit of that dream, Virginia enrolled in Toy Creators Academy®.

As of 2023 Virginia continues to be passionate about the development of the Tiptoe the Birthday Elf™ brand. Now a registered trademark, there have been numerous iterations of the character design thus far, although Tiptoe is always uniquely characterised by his joyful expression, his pointy elven ears, a rainbow striped onesie and his magical, twinkly toes.

Our shared vision.

For all of us, birthdays represent another year of growth and lessons learned with an opportunity to pause, reflect and appreciate all that we are and have been. Birthdays bring about memories, emotions and experiences that help us celebrate the miracle of life.

Tiptoe the Birthday Elf represents the joy of thoughtfulness and giving - a delight we all feel at one point or another. Tiptoe the Birthday Elf embodies the spiritual joy we share with others. He is the joyful, kind and compassionate face of the greater spirit that lives and walks among us.

As described on the About page of this website, Tiptoe the Birthday Elf’s mission is “to celebrate and serenade every living person on their birthdays” delighting all who believe in his magical powers. You too can share the magic of Tiptoe the Birthday Elf™ with friends and loved ones.
