  • Very beautiful painted elephant, really fondle admiringly. Also know Mocha (). The only bad thing is that you can't buy small size alone. Because the time relationship is not hand-drawn, next time have a chance to hand-painted one.

  • Good for an hour. My daughter (5) painted an elephant while we alkyd around and admired the elephants. Proceeds support elephant conservation too so that's a plus.
  • Bravo to the people who thought of this! A shop that specializes in artistically painted elephant statues of all sizes. In honor of an Elephant who lost a leg but is being cared for in a sanctuary. Proceeds from the sale of the statues go to the sanctuary to care for her and other elephants. Many of the elephants statues are even designed by international celebrities! Great activity idea - spend a couple hours painting an elephant Statue! They have three sizes - small, medium and large. Once you're done, they bake the elephant and you take it home! This activity is for all ages as long as you can hold a paint brush and paint!
  • Elephant Parade house is selling models of all scales of colored elephants. Part of the money is used for elephant saving projects. You can even color your own, personal elephant here. It's really worth a visit.
  • We had a great time painting elephants!
  • So many big and beautiful elephants. Fabulous staff. Helpful and friendly. Elephants are not inexpensive to purchase.
