History with the Macy's Parade
As means of promotion for their new film on Netflix, a new group of novelty balloons was introduced to the Parade in 2018, featuring four separate balloons of Santa’s most trusted elves. Fleck, a pint-sized toy-making powerhouse, is seen carrying Santa’s Bag Tracker, and Bjorn is seen showcasing his love of candy canes, while troublemaker JoJo delivers letters to Santa, and Hugg can carve the right toy with the right tool, that being his trusty chainsaw. These balloons only appeared in the 2018 Parade, and have yet to make another appearance.
- At Balloonfest 2018, Fleck, Bjorn, and Jojo could not do their test flights due to high winds, with Hugg never being used at Balloonfest at all for an unknown reason.
- Hugg's left ear was left uninflated in the 2018 Parade.
