We finally found it. It’s not Dumbo. It just looks like Dumbo. It’s one of the many animals in a toy set called Noah’s Ark. Normally I would have avoided a toy with a strong religious connotation such as this one, but Anna wanted precisely this elephant, so I guess I couldn’t say no. It turned out that Anna was exactly right in insisting that there’s a green turtle sitting on the head of a purple elephant with big blue ears.
We had to buy the whole Noah’s Ark set to get that particular elephant. The first thing Anna did once she’s gotten over the initial joy with the elephant was to —- sigh —- arrange them in a straight line like an autistic kid would.
