Elephant Parade House, Chiang Mai, Thailand
I always get excited when I see this colorful beauty, who rolls out the welcome mat for visitors…
I literally squeaked when I realized that the shop has expanded, and there are more gorgeous elephants playing outside the shop…
Isn’t he awesome!?
And this beautiful fella guards the parking lot…
I smiled as I walked in the door, remembering back to the day that I bought MY elephant. Two hours slipped by before I walked out with my little guy all wrapped up for his journey back to Korea. Trust me, each elephant is beyond beautiful, and I really did want one of each! The elephants are painted by artists and celebrities. Each has a name and a number, and there is a limited number produced of each design. There is an elephant to fit almost every budget. Prices range from about $32.00 to $120.00US.

I nicknamed this one ‘Miss Spotty’…
Cute and quirky!
Now, Meet Mosha, the first elephant to ever receive an artificial limb, which was made possible through the Elephant Parade. In fact, Mosha is the inspiration behind Elephant Parade. Have a look at their website.
This guy is such a giggle. I nicknamed him “Naughty”…
Guess what? You can paint your own elephant! (This is on my list for next year!) (or you can take it home to paint!)
A lot of contemplation went into painting his fella. I loved watching this little boy make his creation come to life. At one point his Dad tried to get in on the action and he was having none of that. He told his Dad to go away in good style. (I secretly gave the kid a little cheer!)
