To get the most out of these precious decorative accessories, try lining up the elephant, turtle, and giraffe on a wall shelf or a dresser in descending height order – giraffe, elephant, turtle (far away from little one’s hands).  Or, if you have an elephant, turtle, or giraffe themed nursery consider three of the same kind of animals in a line or strategically placed on different shelves in your baby’s room. Designed by Elegant Baby, this line is called “Lil Buddies”. Each piece is hand-painted ceramic.  The aqua giraffe is 11” X 4 “X 3”, the pink elephant is 7.5” x 7.5” x 5”, and the green turtle 6” x 4.5” x 4.5”. For a more classic look, Elegant Baby has a cute pale blue bear bank and a pig piggy bank that comes with polka dots in popular nursery colors.  We think these banks would also be great baby shower gifts for friends.
