Sometimes my customers have the best ideas and this is one of those times. This is the same pair of hand painted wooden elephants sold with my Noah's Arks but put to a new use. They are perfect for bookends for any pachyderm loving child's bedroom.

You get two lovely elephants made by me out of fast growing 1" pine. Each is made from my special technique of cutting two different shapes cut out of the wood and gluing them together so the elephant has 4 distinct legs and a "3D" appearance. Tusks and trunks are shaped with a Dremel tool and after a whole lot of sanding I use certified non toxic sealer and paints to bring them life. Each is then coated with at least 3 coats of a satin non toxic finish so they feel wonderful and the painted finish is protected.

Each elephant is 4.5" tall and 5.75" from trunk to tail. One has tusks and one does not. (I thought tusked elephants were male and non tusked female but I'm wrong. I still love having one with and one without tusks.)

FAQ: I'm frequently asked if my bookends will really hold up books or are they just decorative. Truthfully, they on the small side. They work very well with shorter, hardbound or board books. I picture them with "Little Golden Books" and books that are around 9" - 10" tall and they hold them up just fine. If you have a huge batch of books trying to fall over, these will most likely fall, also. Because they are made of lighter wood, at least they won't do too much damage when they fall. Feel free to covo me with any questions.
