Hi there! I’m Krystal. A former Primary Teacher who is now teaching my three little ones.
The phrase Sweet Elephants has always been dear to my heart. My grandfather would gently whisper it to me as a child as he wished me goodnight. He understood the astounding lifelong bonds between elephants that have transcended time and distance and hoped for the same in our family. We aim to bring a little bit of magic into your home though our unique baby gifts and furniture and kid’s educational toys and hope that your herd develop long lasting relationships with our products and will be cherished for generations to come.
Our blog is a space where we not only share creative ways our products can be used but a snippet into our family life and learning.
Thank you for being a special part of our adventure…
