  • the story

Sound the Call!

It's a sultry afternoon in the jungle, as a herd of elephants approaches the watering hole. As they drink their fill, they take turns keeping watch, and if one spies danger―they sound their emergency whistle!

Well, real elephants might not whistle, but this handcrafted wooden whistle is made to sound like an elephant! Hand carved from monkey pod wood by artisans in Thailand, it's full of delightful, sculptural details. The playful wooden animal has his trunk raise in salute, and when you blow through the hole near his tale, it makes a sound like the familiar trumpeting of an elephant. It is produced using Fair Trade practices that help sustain the environment while providing sustainable wages to the craftspeople. Whether it's used to teach children about the animal kingdom, as a toy for playtime adventures, or as a unique addition to a musical performance, this playful pachyderm might make things a bit more wild. Handmade in Thailand.

    Was a good gift. Although the blow hole placement isn't optimal, it made for a good laugh. It also doesn't actually sound like an elephant. He really enjoyed it though and it was a good conversion piece!

      Comments about ELEPHANT WHISTLE:

      The Product is fun and whimsical. I'm a big fan of elephant decor, and this was a playful way to give a gift to my toddler nephew. The only "complaint" per say, is that the hole to blow in to the whistle is planted right on the elephants rear-end. I kind of thought I would blow in it's trunk, but it made for a jovial time when the present was given. All in all this is a sturdy, beautiful gift.

        This is a delightful gift for anyone who likes elephants. The 9 year old girl I gave it to liked it but when she realized it was a whistle and blew it, she laughed like I'd never seen her laugh! Perfect. Thanks for a great item.

            I gave this elephant as a gift to my friend and I actually received one as well from my mother as a Christmas present. They are very pretty elephants. I just thought the placement of the blow hole for the whistle was in a litte bit of an interesting place.

            My son loves elephants so this was the perfect gift. The whistle is easy to blow, but it sounds more like a duck call than an elephant trumpeting! It is fun nonetheless and we will enjoy it for years to come. We love it even with its quirkiness!

                It was a beautiful piece, but it is hysterical when it was blown. We have said it represents the duck the elephant stepped upon. It causes many laughs when blown, but lots of OOOs and AHs when it is seen on the shelf.
