Finally, we know you want to ask…why the name?!

Well, when the kids were younger and couldn’t think of a word we always went… “Elephant? Gazelle? Giraffe?”, so elephants hold a special place in our hearts. No idea why it is in a handbag, though. Mind you, now you mention it, my handbag is a little on the heavy side…!
