Children’s Decor: The Elephant in the Room

It all started when I spotted this bicycle at my local bike shop–cupcakes and elephants on a bike?!? How cute is that? So it got me thinking–how many other adorable products, adorned with elephants are out there? And how fantastic would it be too decorate a child’s room with an elephant motif? So I started to look–and I looked and looked because there are so many things, all cuter than the last. And, the best thing about an elephant? It swings both ways–so if you’re looking to decorate a nursery, and you don’t know what you’re having, invite the elephant in!
