Elf Yourself-Style videos: jibjab.com offers the hilarious Holiday e-cards featuring music videos of Christmas song favorites splashed in with family photos you can upload. The site is easy to use for young users and fun to play with the whole family. Most videos to upload photos are "all ages". There are a few recommended for ages 14+. The 14+ videos content reflect content with potty jokes or humor akin to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Nothing sexual or odd, but I appreciate the warning.
