What if we told you that you could save money by keeping a pet elephant? That would just sound a little bit cray-cray, right? But the truth is ... you can - with this great home accessory!It's an elephant bank. Not to be confused with a piggy bank. And whether you actually want to store your coins in it or not, it looks darling and sweet sitting on your desk, a shelf or next to your television. Plus, you have to appreciate that it's wood-carved, hand-painted, and it's much larger than it looks in the picture. Not to mention, it has felt on the feet to protect the surface it sits on. So go on ... give in to your need to save by buying this lovely elephant. We'll call her Sally.
