About our Novelty Tar-Covered Sauna Tonttu / Tar Sauna Elf

Our tar-scented sauna elves have a deeply rooted tradition in Finland. The Saunatonttu is said to inhabit the sauna and punish those who misbehave in it. A tonttu is also someone who tirelessly prepares, heats and cares for the sauna. A perfect gift for a new sauna owner for plenty of years of sauna fun to come. As a patron of the sauna, the tonttu will bring good luck and success.

Tar-Covered: Each Tonttu is covered in tar oil, creating a unique atmosphere within your own sauna. Make sure that it is placed somewhere away from your sauna benches and textiles, as the nature of the oiling could stain its immediate surrounds. Please also DO NOT place this elf directly onto the sauna stones/rocks. 

Three different tonttu variants: We offer a variety of three different elves, each with their own unique, quirky features. Our female tonttu to follow shortly.

From Finnish Folklore:
Tonttu, tonttu, saunatonttu
Lying there on the floor
What might that creature be
Is it from the underworld
Tonttu, tonttu, saunatonttu
Didn't believe in the ancient oath
But was secretly boozing moonshine
And let the sauna burn down
The sauna was destroyed
When tonttu broke the ancient oath
