Eco-Friendly Walking Elephant: Hop on!

This little guy is way more than just a toy.  The Walking Elephant, from PlanToys, is not only adorable and functional, he is environmentally friendly as well. Made from organic rubberwood and finished with non-toxic vegetable and soy dyes, this little guy rocks! Literally.

Not only can you rock back and forth on him, but he walks forward in a kind of swaying motion, just like real elephants. And even better, he uses the energy provided by the person riding it so there is no need for expensive batteries or electricity.

The Walking Elephant is about 16 x 12 x 23 inches and weighs about 17 pounds. The product meets or exceeds safety standards and is recommended for children 3 and up. Walking Elephant retails for under $200 and some assembly is required.
