This photo was taken in NYC 2011 but in the mid fifties this teeny elephant assisted my sister in making me stop crying. She’d be in charge (babysitting) and I’d be sad my parents went out. She would make this elephant appear and then she’d make it fly away and disappear. I’m not sure how many times she repeated this act but I remember believing it was magic.
A wonderful childhood story and an adorable elephant!!
What a sweet little elephant and a lovely memory for you. Every child needs magic in thier lives.
I don’t think your sister made the elephant disappear. I think it left on its own because it hated all the crying. When you stopped the elephant came back to play. Obviously the elephant was dressed up for a tea party. Everyone knows elephants love tea parties. Dc

That little elephant looks in great shape. I wonder if its magic works today?
What a sweet memory. And amazing that you still have that little elephant. Give it a try next time you feel like crying….I bet the magic still works.
What a beautiful story, so nice to remember things like this. Happy to hear that you still have the magical elephant. I’m sure the magic is still there, waiting for the right moment to appear.
I love childhood stories, what a sweet memory!
A great childhood memory and a very creative sister. The awesome wonders of magic for a curious audience.
This is the sweetest of stories and the sweetest of elephants. I love everything about this post and how dear your sister was to you when your parents went out.
Thank you Audrey
Awww, what a great big sister!
